When it’s “All hands on Project”

Your Problem Our Solution

When big projects come in, everyone is ramping up on getting organized, but then it hits!  Great skills on hand, but not enough hands to cover all of the workload. That is when you need additional man-power, but not necessarily full-time staff. Sometimes your need requires full-time staff, as well, but you are too busy to find, interview and qualify candidates.

This is where finding a partner who can provide you with uniquely qualified candidates right when you need them becomes your project game changer. Perhaps you need a scheduler, or maybe a 4D/BIM expert. Maybe you need a Project Manager or Assistant Project Manager, Site Personnel, Engineers or Cost Analyst. Let CBA know because this is our specialty! CBA, as many of our customers are aware, has had a great amount of success helping our customers by having candidates available for a variety of project tasks to help them fill that “hands needed” problem.

Your specialty is completing projects on time and within budget.  We can help you get there by quickly providing pre-qualified candidates with your unique required skill set. Learn how we provided The Ruhlin Company with a key project controls resource or how we helped ensure the success of future capital projects at Greater Cincinnati Water Works.

Out of the BOX

CBA Cloud Solutions powered by box

The expertise of CBA + box = CBA Cloud Solutions

The risk of data loss to sources outside of the company’s walls is a huge concern to executives and IT professionals alike.  Controlling security is a full time job in and of itself.  Firewalls, spam filters, open ports, closed ports so many things to be concerned with.

But what about documents that must be shared with customers and partners outside of your corporate walls?   What about the burden of large confidential documents being sent via unsecured email as attachments – not only from an upload/download and storage perspective, but what about from a security perspective?!

Good news!! Now you can safely share documents and save your IT team from pulling their hair out because they can’t keep up with all of the demands put on them.  CBA, Inc. offers a secure, cloud based solution to share and collaborate on documents internally or externally.  Concerned about attachment send/receive limits??  No worries there either – they are sent as a link to the document rather than sending an actual document.  How cool is that?  Oh, and with an enterprise package, the sky’s the limit for storage space!!

Best of all, you can control who sees what, manage who opens what and you can integrate it with other applications – out of the BOX!!

Our partner company is growing extremely fast and their solution is being used by some pretty impressive companies on an enterprise and global level. Additionally impressive is that the price points make it attractive and accessible to all size organizations!

Just ask us!  We are a “Choice Re-seller” Partner of  BOX and we have already been doing installations for our customers who recognize a great thing when we show it to them!!

Call me and I can show you how to give your executives and IT professionals a good night’s sleep by protecting your documents while improving corporate collaboration – safely!

Primavera P6 Configuration – Great Idea!

CBA Configured Primavera P6 while I was at training

Happiness is CBA, Inc. configuring Primavera before returning from training

Let’s assume you have made an enterprise decision to manage all of your projects using Oracle’s Primavera software. Smart move! Let’s also assume that you have spent considerable amounts of dollars purchasing the product along with Oracle Maintenance. You have decided to have CBA, Inc. install your product and are ready to send your users to our terrific training classes.

Everything is installed, users are trained and it’s time to get to work – but wait…the system isn’t configured yet…the users cannot manage their projects yet…what to do?

Consider software configuration a time saver that each new customer to the Primavera software product line should seek out. Having a professional qualified provider, like CBA, work with you and your users to identify, develop and implement best practices for your unique business and configure the system according to your specific requirements will allow your team to not miss a beat when they return from training. Being proactive and pre-determining configuration services will allow your newly trained staff to know exactly were to find those very powerful tools they just learned about and know exactly were to begin.

As a part of your overall project plan, CBA’s Primavera Implementation services are extremely beneficial, cost-effective and an efficient solution to the learning curve blues.

Sure, you could try to configure the system yourself; but you’ll most likely end up wasting valuable time and spending more money trying to figure everything out by a process of trial and error than if you just paid to have the system configured ahead of time.

CBA, Inc., will make certain that your investment works from day one!

I Can Do the Install Myself…Until I Need Help!!

P6 is an enterprise application whether you are purchasing one license or ten.  There are many factors to be considered when installing the product.

Do I want a stand-alone install?  Do I want to take advantage of the web features?  Do I have an Oracle database or SQL?  Is my system 32 bit or 64 bit?  Which operating system am I using?  Am I installing a “Typical” or “Standalone” version and is it P6 v7 or P6 v8.2?  Which Java JDK is installed and to what Home location should the oracle software be pointed to after the install is done?  Which features of P6 should be configured?  BI, Collaboration, Workflow, Web Services?  Whew, and these are just a few of the things we need to understand.

I often am told “we can do the install ourselves”.  Sometimes this is true, however, more often than not,  because this is an enterprise application, it is not just a disc to fire up and click a few “next” buttons. I frequently get calls about error messages.  I am in sales and I’m pretty good at it, but technical enterprise application install questions fall outside my area of competency.  My suggestions would undoubtedly compound the problem.  What I can do is get the right people involved.

Proper installations as well as training on the product are critical to your success.  CBA, Inc. has been in the business of providing project management solutions, Primavera products, training, implementation and staff augmentation services since 1984.

Whether you are in the energy, oil and gas, construction, manufacturing, or any other industry that requires close management of budget, resources and timelines to be successful, CBA, Inc. can and does help.  Large or small companies across the country have benefited from our expertise, and as a result, we are sought after time and time again by our customers because of our successes.

To find out what we can do you help you save time and maximize your investment, please contact your CBA, Inc. Michigan Account Executive – Donna McLean at (248) 522-7931 or by email at dmclean@cbainc.com.
