Lighthouse Technology Partners: A LiveTiles Partner Story
Lighthouse Technology Partners is a Professional Services company located in Greenwich Connecticut, specializing in serving the IT needs of Small to Medium Size (SMB) enterprises and the technology that powers them.
With LiveTiles, Lighthouse Technology Partners has halved the time it takes to develop an engaging user experience over SharePoint. Now with more time and resources to focus on strategy and business solutions for their clients, Lighthouse is using LiveTiles to close deals, grow its customer base and improve the out-of-the-box SharePoint experience.
UX IN HALF THE TIME
With no code ‘drag and drop’ features that can be deployed over Office 365, SharePoint and Azure, Lighthouse is building digital workplaces with LiveTiles in half the time.
“We’re saving about 40-50% in time developing the user experience, without the need to custom code every feature,” explained Danny David, Lighthouse’s Portals and Information Architect.
“Before LiveTiles, it would take up to a year for a larger deployment. Now we’re doing projects in a few months and at much less cost.”
“The solutions that we’re now able to deliver with LiveTiles exceed what we thought possible.”
With more time to focus on the client’s business needs and the strategy behind their intranet development, Lighthouse is growing its reputation and customer base.
“The solutions that we’re now able to deliver with LiveTiles exceed what we thought possible,” Danny said.
“It has allowed us to focus on the strategy, onboarding and business requirements of our clients, and much less time is spent coding compared to a traditional SharePoint project.
“Using LiveTiles just immensely increases the usability of SharePoint.”
SHOW AND TELL WITH LIVETILES
With LiveTiles, Lighthouse Technology Partners is showing its clients the end product from the start – a feature that is proving valuable.
“LiveTiles is a great starting point,” Danny said.
“The visual nature of LiveTiles means we can demonstrate what we can produce, which improves our ability to close deals.”
By leading with a demo site built with LiveTiles, Lighthouse is talking to the whole business and not just the IT department.
“We’re now able to bring everyone in, from IT to the business stakeholders, to show what’s possible and what the end result can look like for them,” Danny said.
“This used to just be a high-level IT discussion about the functionality of SharePoint, which sometimes made people fall asleep.”
