Integrated, Brandable, Easy-to-Use Technology
By contrast, with Progress aPaaS, Good Done Great was able to install the software in their own private cloud and integrate it within their brand. “This allows us to control costs and manage the entire relationship for our clients,” notes Barach.
Although transitioning from QuickBase to Progress aPaaS took some effort, Good Done Great’s staff was able to make the move quickly and without glitches. Furthermore, once applications were rebuilt in Progress they were clearly functionally superior. “All of our clients stated that the experience was leaps-and-bounds better than with QuickBase,” noted Barach.
Among the most crucial differences for clients was security; there was less comfort with the QuickBase API for public facing features and “Progress has continued to be diligent and responsive in addressing any emerging issues,” Barach notes.
Progress aPaas also enabled Good Done Great to address the needs of large, multinational and global organizations. Not only was the functionality greater, but Progress aPaaS included native multilingual support. “We would never have been able to reach out to companies of this caliber using QuickBase; but once we moved over to Progress aPaaS, the momentum changed,” said Barach. Today, Good Done Great counts among its clients leading companies such as Gulfstream, TEDCO, Marriott, and Driscoll’s, a leading supplier of fresh berries.
Not only does Progress aPaaS work well within a private cloud, it also supports customers on the go, with a Web-based user interface and portal structure that allows access to functionality anywhere, anytime. And using a Progress API, Good Done Great is now considering how to enhance support for mobility, too.
