Helping businesses make the switch from the server room to the cloud platform is the Brentwood, Tennessee-based business tech solutions firm LBMC Technology Solutions. Initially founded as an accounting firm in 1984, LBMC Tech Solutions has evolved into a leading provider of diverse business solutions comprising accounting and finance, technology, human resource, risk and information security, wealth advisory services, and more. “We are a full-service technology solutions company and aim to be the last technology partner you’ll ever need,” says Bryan Wilton, vice president, LBMC.
Equipped with highly qualified consulting staff – many of whom are MBAs and CPAs – LBMC understands businesses and their requirements thoroughly. “What sets us apart is that we’re selling the expertise of our people, not just technology,” remarks Wilton. And LBMC leverages this expertise to create personalized business solutions for companies’ diverse operational requirements by conducting business process reviews, where the LBMC team sits with clients to resolve their issues from a business tech standpoint. “At LBMC, we’re focused on helping drive innovation in our clients’ businesses and bringing forward-thinking solutions that make their businesses better,” says Wilton.
As a long-term Microsoft partner, LBMC believes in being its primary customer by internally deploying all of Microsoft’s products in its firm. This practice prepares LBMC to help companies smoothly transition from on-premises work to remote work, which often involves something as simple as moving them from MS Office to Microsoft 365. Microsoft tools like Power BI, MS Dynamics, and more bundled within the hosting environment of MS Azure further provide an integrated platform to securely run the applications on the cloud. Additionally, several companies looking to reforecast their budgets at the last minute have found a solution in LBMC’s cloud products and services, which enables them to upload their current budget to the cloud directly from MS Excel and re-plan it by running it through different business scenarios.
With over 25 years of experience under its belt, LBMC has a well-defined onboarding process for clients. It involves testing and user experience that utilizes the clients’ data in a non-production environment to provide customized solutions to companies’ needs, allowing companies of all sizes to learn and adapt to new solutions at their own pace. Coordinating the entire process is LBMC’s in-house project management office comprising certified project managers overseeing every step of the process. Additionally, LBMC also provides support services to projects post-deployment.

With such a personalized support system, it’s no wonder LBMC can provide innovative solutions to its clients’ diverse issues. Wilton recalls an instance last year when a non-profit health organization sought LBMC’s help with vendor payments that were still being done on paper checks signed by multiple signers on work-from-home. LBMC digitalized the entire process – including converting physical checks received by the organization to the digital format – enabling secure transportation and processing of checks worth millions of dollars. “We were able to eliminate the complete reliance on paper checks and still give them what they needed to pay their vendors,” informs Wilton.
LBMC intends to keep up with the increasing pace of the ever-evolving tech scene – be it in consulting, cloud services, software, or hardware. And now, LBMC is planning to enter the field of predictive analytics. Aided by Microsoft Power tools like Power BI, LBMC seeks to help businesses tap into huge data sets to predict consumer behavior. “We’re using technology to finally predict what consumers might be looking for, and then making the products available to them. That to me is the future of technology,” Wilton concludes.
