From an IT perspective, CBT ensures their customers manage IT costs efficiently while gaining the technological advantage and optimizing their in-house IT. “With IT Supply Chain Optimization, we ensure that our clients continually have control, asset cataloging capabilities, appropriate pricing, and full lifecycle visibility through real-time data and dashboards in our B2B Experience portal,” says Schaeffer.
Apart from being an IT/OT domain expert integrator, CBT’s team of experts differentiates itself from others by bringing an entrepreneurial spirit to their clients’ goals. Taking a customer-centric and a data-driven approach, CBT adopts lean and agile practices to make recommendations based on the insights from particular use cases and interviews. Leveraging their experience and business acumen, the team helps organizations understand the collaborative nature of the digital transformation journey and utilizes their expansive partner ecosystem to deliver unique solutions. Even in the current scenario of COVID-19, when organizations are facing the challenge of providing the same customer experience with reduced staff and budgets, CBT drives the same level of services with the help of their operational technology solutions such as Connected Worker. This people-driven technology solution empowers employees by providing instant and actionable data in real-time. It allows clients to deploy fewer employees by connecting field personnel with subject matter experts remotely. This reduces the number of resources necessary to manage geographically dispersed teams and makes each employee vastly more efficient and knowledgeable. It also enhances knowledge transfer between team members and improves training procedures. Thus, companies can deliver the same high-quality customer experience while reducing costs.
CBT recognizes the demands placed on businesses as technology continually shifts and evolves. Everything must be faster, more efficient, and higher profit in order to keep up. CBT believes by leveraging IT/OT convergence they can maintain and increase their customers’ competitive advantage. “We will continue to help companies in digital transformation and ensure they collaborate in efficient and cost-effective ways to accelerate the achievement of their goals,” concludes Schaeffer.
