CBM Technology: A LiveTiles Customer Story

LiveTiles partnership growing demand, reputation for CBM Tech

For over 44 years, CBM Technology has been providing innovative and dependable IT services to some of the top companies in Louisiana and across the nation. Based in Louisiana, CBM Technology is a local business operating on a national level, developing customized IT solutions.

With clients placing an emphasis on having a visually appealing intranet with a clean layout, much of CBM Technology’s time was spent on making SharePoint projects look good. As a LiveTiles partner, CBM Technology delivers striking digital workplaces in months, not years, and at a fraction of the cost.

SharePoint made easy

For CBM Technology, LiveTiles means an 80% time saving when it comes to building, testing and deploying SharePoint solutions for clients.

With workplaces understandably placing an emphasis on a clean layout, ironically CBM’s Director of Software Development, Jean-luc Ahlers, was building intranets with ’tiles’ from scratch. This meant individually custom coding features such as search bars, social media tiles and connections to apps like OneDrive, Skype for Business and Yammer.

With a library of pre-coded ‘drag and drop’ tiles at his disposal, LiveTiles allows Jean-luc to manage SharePoint content structure with precision, speed and ease.

“When I found LiveTiles, I said this is exactly what I am doing and I’ve been beating myself over the head trying to make these tiles myself.”

“It’s very hard to create a visual solution as robust or good as LiveTiles offers.”

 “Quotes for branded SharePoint sites would typically start at approximately $50,000. With LiveTiles I can achieve better results with costs starting at around $5,000.”

Save time, money with LiveTiles

CBM Technology is using LiveTiles to build over SharePoint and develop engaging intranet solutions for clients at a fraction of the cost and time.

“When I came across LiveTiles I was actually in the middle of a custom branded SharePoint project. It took a year and half to finalize that project and cost the client over $100,000,” Jean-luc said.

“I did a similar project a month later with a significant oil company using LiveTiles. It took us under a month from signing the contract to going live, and it looked incredible.”

With LiveTiles, CMB Technology is winning new business and rolling out SharePoint solutions in months, not years, and much more cost efficiently.

Customers screaming my praise

Becoming a LiveTiles partner has revolutionized the way CBM Technology does business, and its reputation is growing quickly.

“Me going in there with LiveTiles is like a big ball of shining light. This is how you need to do things,” said Jean-luc.

“When I go into presentations with LiveTiles, I’m able to open possibilities and spark imagination. They can watch the transformation happen in front of their eyes.”

LiveTiles makes building over SharePoint simple, with ‘drag and drop’ tiles that can be easily branded and designed in a way that is intuitive to the end user.

 “I knew when I got a hold of it I needed to make this part of my business, and it’s pretty much the only way we do SharePoint now,” Jean-luc said.

 “It costs significantly less and I’ve got customers screaming my praise. They all hear what I did and they all want to use LiveTiles.”
