SOLVING THE SHAREPOINT STRUGGLE

The Challenge

Despite its great functionality, the challenge for Bytes Software Services has always been getting customers to engage with SharePoint.

“The most common challenge we see is making SharePoint as exciting as it possibly can be, to the point where people want to use it,” explained Bradley Tomlin, Bytes’ CRM Development and Integration Specialist.

“It’s got great functionality, but it doesn’t entice you or make you want to use it an engaging way.”

The Solution

LiveTiles Design means up to an 80% time saving when it comes to building, testing and deploying SharePoint solutions, with a user-friendly interface and a library of configurable no-code ‘drag and drop’ features.

With a simplified SharePoint experience, Bytes’ customers across the United Kingdom are building engaging solutions with ease.

 “There’s only a certain level of functionality you can get out of SharePoint, until you use LiveTiles over the top,” Bradley said.

“It not only gives them the solution they’re looking for, but a comfortable way of building what they want in a very unique and stylistic approach.”

“SharePoint is that much better now, that much better looking, that much more user-friendly. People are not always looking just for the functionality but ease of use. LiveTiles’ user interface brings that.”

The Result

With LiveTiles Design, Bytes’ customers are utilizing SharePoint in ways they never had before.

“SharePoint is that much better now, that much better looking, that much more user-friendly. People are not always looking just for the functionality but ease of use. LiveTiles’ user interface brings that,” Bradley said.

As well as being one of LiveTiles’ major resellers, Bytes is also a customer. Using LiveTiles to build and maintain their own digital workplace, Bradley has created over 200 team pages in just a few months.

“It was really just me going ahead and configuring all those sites,” he said.

“We now have a solution that people want to use that’s not slow, that’s not clunky or boring. While the same data is behind it, it’s a much more enticing way of using SharePoint to build an intranet.”
