"I moved our business applications to Quickbase in 2013 and have worked 3 other consultants. But when I found Quandary, they listened to my needs and learned my business which the previous companies did not do.
They identified automations and solutions to increase our productivity and assist in managing a multitude of datasets which has increased our sales. There is nothing out of reach with my imagination and their ability to create processes and management tools!"
- Diana Rotondo, VP Operations
Holding an enormous amount of historical sales data, the client wanted to improve the structure and usability of their system. They also wanted to simplify the database use for their staff.
Being a future-focused company, they wanted a supplier who could rebuild their system, ensuring perfect flexibility and implementation of control mechanisms. Additionally, the client needed a modern solution that allowed easy reporting.
They were also looking for a way to minimize the number of emails sent and a way to integrate the internal communication flow into the system.
The client was open to suggestions on the best technology to use for the project. And they were looking for a partner who could manage the analysis, development, and maintenance of this new system.
During the course of the project, the client interacting with the Quandary Custom Business Applications and Process Improvement teams often.
Our tech consultants mapped the previous sales transaction flow and found gaps related to contract commission rates management. Investigating this task thoroughly, they saw an opportunity to improve the outreach process for contractors that weren't meeting their full potential.
The application development engineers took over to implement the Quickbase database enriched by custom scripts.
This bespoke solution processes sales transactions with speed and reliability. Plus, it displays all historical sales data in a highly-customizable report format.
The new system provides reports on the current state of the client, contracted commissions, and previous transactions in a couple of clicks. This allows the client's sales representatives to better prepare for negotiations and close deals more effectively.
All in all, the overall annual efficiency of this project is around $100K.
