CBI Wins ETMA Best Practices Award

Posted on Posted in Conferences & Events

On the third and final day of the Enterprise Technology Management Association (ETMA) Member Conference in Philadelphia on Wednesday, September 26th, CBI was awarded the Technology Expense Management Best Practices Award.

ETMA defines “best practice” as a technique or methodology, that through experience and research, has proven to reliably lead to a desired result. Each nominee gave a presentation for why their company’s best practice should be recognized. Denise Booms-Pepin, Founder and CEO, presented CBI’s best practice nomination around our client life-cycle. After, conference attendees voted on which company deserved the award.

Here at CBI, we don’t measure success by the awards or recognition we receive, but rather by the success and satisfaction our clients receive as a result of the dedication and hard work we provide them. CBI’s best practices are in place to ensure our clients are satisfied and provided with a swift, stress-free implementation. We are proud of each and every one of our team members who work diligently to make sure our clients are provided with best in class service, making this kind of recognition possible.

Below you will find what went into developing our recognized best practice.

Best Practice

Once a sale is made we turn it over to our implementation team. CBI assigns a client service manager (CSM) from day one of implementation to go-live through the lifetime of the client. By doing this we ensure there is full knowledge transfer of all the things discussed, thus eliminating duplication of communication. Together, this guarantees the CBI, client relationship is poised for success.


By establishing this account team structure, we create greater comfort & confidence between us and the client. This has reduced implementation time by 25% providing CBI clients with a 90-day stress-free implementation. Our business practice has provided extremely positive feedback, resulting in a 100% Telecom Expense Management (TEM) client retention rate.
