Sales analytics re-invented
What we do is Business Intelligence for Salesforce. How we do it is quite a bit different. With Quarrio we make it simple to analyze Salesforce by using conversations. We help you understand what’s happening to your opportunities, leads, accounts – just about anything in Salesforce — by simply having conversations.
No reports, no administrators, no mess, just ask questions and get answers with the requisite KPIs, charts and tables as needed. Quarrio is Business Intelligence evolved.
Got questions? just ask!
Knowledge is power. You close deals quickly when vital information is at your fingertips. Quarrio lets you get anything you need from Salesforce by simply “asking” – in plain English.
No training required, you’ve known how to use Quarrio since you were in fifth grade.
It talks back to you
Quarrio is more than just questions and answers. In seconds, you find stalled deals, identify key clients, spot trends – anything – without worrying about reports, filters or tables.
Do you really want to play analyst?
Or just crush your quota?

How long did your last BI deployment last? How does about a minute sound? That’s right, sign up, sign in, and sixty seconds later you are off to the races…
Are you still waiting for that custom Salesforce report? Really?
This is just the beginning
There is a whole lot more coming. Quarrio is currently operating in quiet mode, but we are eager to talk to you. We are working with a select group of clients and are growing our list every day. Do you want to help us change the world of analytics? Just click on the sign up button and let us know that you’re interested. We’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
…before it’s even out of the box
In July of 2014 the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) presented its “NextGen” awards for Big Data. SIIA chose to bestow the “Most Disruptive,” and the “Overall Winner” awards to Quarrio Corporation even though at the time our product was not yet available, and we had not yet raised a single round of funding.
Because, in the words of one of the judges, Quarrio provided “… great technology that allows users to move away from confusing dashboards…”
Who we are
Our leadership team
We are moving beyond “pretty pictures” and completely re-thinking how Business Intelligence and reporting should work and how it should look. We understand that business users don’t want to be analysts and report writers, you just want answers.
The list of people who want to try our software is spilling over, and our need for talent is greater than ever. Do you want to help us change the world of data and Business Intelligence? Whether it’s to use our software, or to work for us, get in touch! Let’s change the World together.

We are different
We don’t look for stars, we just reach for them.

We are a company of experience; age and background matters little to us, experience and commitment do.

Quarrio’s philosophy is one of CARE. The basic principle is that any organization – our own, customers or partners – are comprised of individuals. Care for the individual is central to our success. We value collaboration and an open flow of information, cherish good ideas, and strive for quality. Built from a strong focus on individual productivity, our people are self-starters that take great pride in their work and understand how their personal efforts contribute directly to the success of the company as a whole. For a small company, we are tremendously international with people interacting on a daily basis with persons of different cultural, racial and philosophical backgrounds. Acceptance, tolerance and understanding are qualities that are necessary to excel in this environment.
The function of a business is to attract and serve customers and to turn a profit. Those three functions are what it needs to stay alive and have any kind of purpose. Some would say that this means that we exist in a competitive environment; we believe that we are creators and therefore never have to compete. We innovate, create and invent the best products for customers, and support them in their businesses. We exist to profitably create the best products for our customers. The best product is the one that best addresses their perceived needs, enables them to accomplish their goals and for which they are willing to pay.
We function best as an organization when our goals are clearly defined and all activities and results are measured against these. Our employees invest in Quarrio achieving its objectives and we expect our managers to nurture this attitude. Managers are accessible and provide all the information needed for their employees to understand the company, industry and how to perform their work as efficiently and effectively as possible. We foster and work with our employees to help them grow and achieve both personal and career goals.
Quarrio has no time or tolerance for “the blame game” or for “killing the messenger.” We recognize that mistakes may happen, but that the real damage is that of covering them up, since this prevents learning and corrective measures. When our people make mistakes it means they are trying and it is management’s responsibility to help them analyze what went wrong and ensure that it is corrected. This is true at every level of the company.
Quarrio has no time or tolerance for politics. We believe that control is the primary source of political power in an organization and that there are only two things worth controlling—information and money. Our money is constructively controlled by budgets. But information is the lifeblood of our organization. Therefore, anyone trying to curb or control the flow of information will be viewed as being obstructively political and in violation of Quarrio’s culture.
