Shift base from Intuit QuickBase: Free Migration to Zoho Creator quicker than ever!

Posted by Posted on by

Any service that your business depends upon has got to be reliable. Be it your email service or CRM tools or even your database software, there cannot be any compromise. But what would you do, when you find yourself in a situation where, one of your service providers drops a bombshell that they are ceasing operations and handing over the baton to a different company to provide you the product support and services.

Two weeks ago, Intuit announced that they are planning to divest three of their well regarded softwares: Quicken, QuickBase and Demandforce. According to Intuit, QuickBase does not support the current ecosystem of QuickBooks online and it mostly serves customers that are up-market from their core small business customers.

Quickbase Alternative

Intuit had mentioned in its company statement that it has decided to focus and sell products, “to strengthen its ecosystem and align with two strategic goals: to be the operating system behind small business success and to the nations’ taxes in the U.S and Canada.” (Source: Business Wire)

As Intuit seeks to divest its products, this decision leaves QuickBase customers stranded. Need I say more? This is a warning for you to be worried about your business data. QuickBase has no clue who is going to buy them, nor do you have a clue about who is going to handle your data or your product support. We’ve seen it happen with DabbleDB and we’ve seen it happen with Coghead too. We would like to reassure all you QuickBase customers: You need not worry about a place to go!

You’ve made your pitch and answered several rounds of ​queries, but you’re not any closer to a deal. ​What’s worse, people you’ve been interacting with are not the ones who would ​make the final call.

​Sounds like a nightmare? ​This is why closing questions are an important tool. It’s easy to miss out a few points while making a presentation and answering ​questions, ​but your closing questions should be designed to fill in these gaps and give you a clear idea about what to expect next.

1. Does our solution meet your need?

Does your client see value in what you’re selling? This question is the key to finding ​ out.

You can alternatively ask: “Is there anything that’s important to you which I haven’t covered?” Read more
