“We have been working with Quandary for many years and they are the best CRM we have ever worked with. They’re service and response time is fast (within a few hours if not within the hour/never over 12 hour response time), which you cannot always find these days in a CRM company or any company for that matter. If there is something the database does not have, and your company is in need of, there is never a “no, we cannot do that”. They customize it to work for your company and find ways to make it happen how you need it to be done. They take the time to listen and are true innovators. We have always felt they value our business.”
With all the new concerns about 2020 and the new challenges it was bringing, with less in-person meetings and more virtual meetings with multiple people, they were having issues with their current reporting capabilities and their ability to share them with their customers. They needed a way to bring about comprehensive and accurate reports much more efficiently with a way that can be shared and viewed on their video conferences.
Streamlining efficient reporting through Microsoft Power BI
Having worked with Quandary Consulting for many years and understanding how their company works, we implemented the strong reporting tool of Power BI into their arsenal of informational logistics. By integrating their data from Quick Base into Power BI, we were able to bring to this company a way to see their information in a whole new way. With Power BI's new publishing features, there was also now a way to showcase this information securely and accurately to their customers during this new meeting format. Power BI was able to streamline their meetings by providing one source for all their data, highlighting multiple charts and diagrams, instead of the usual spreadsheets and raw numbers. All of these reporting tools were then integrated back into Quick Base and was accessible by all of their Sales Reps, through QB’s URL display capabilities, right from their Homepage.
