Quadmark’s Business Problem
Quadmark’s international growth brought challenges across the organization, such as ineffective communication between groups across multiple time-zones. Their spreadsheets and text documents could not accommodate the size and complexity of their projects. They needed solutions to their business-specific processes, ease of access, and managing a global client base. VARC Solutions fulfilled all of their needs and more using Quickbase. Quickbase is a cloud-based platform allowing Quadmark to access their information from anywhere. VARC Solutions created a user-friendly, comprehensive project management system that factored in all of Quadmark’s business needs, including QuickBooks integration using Q2QConnect.
