Delivering real results through constant evolution, transformation, rapid iteration, innovation and support.


What is a Quickstart?

A Quickstart is a design-thinking ideation session used to make quick progress around complex needs. By asking questions and using an empathy-driven approach, we develop unique, creative solutions that improve your experience and the experience of your customers.

Quickstart Process
    Discovery of Outcomes

    Present final use cases, a clear implementation roadmap, requirements documentation, and action items in order to build, test, and deploy them in the real-world environment.

Innovation Delivery Cycles (IDC)

A process immediately following the Quickstart that includes designing, building, testing and deploying concepts in the real world with real users.

Once validated, our solutions are integrated into the lives of the employees and organizations they’re designed to help.

Subsequent IDCs create a rapid, continuous deployment process we call IDaaS (Innovation Delivery as a Service).

Why Choose Quickstart?
At CBT, we understand that Industrial IoT projects are complex and challenging to get off the ground. That’s why we take a crawl, walk, run approach. We’ll never ask our customers to commit to a multi-million-dollar project before proving its value. We dedicate the time and resources upfront to make sure we’re minimizing your risk and maximizing your investment. Our unique approach ensures you have small, strategic wins and tangible ROI before you fund at scale.

Successful Engagements


CBT's design process helped us identify that our internal team needed to take a step back and gain alignment instead of working off assumptions. By pausing and partnering with CBT, we were able to better define our objectives to ensure the success of the project.
