Deloitte Australia has inked a deal to resell the LiveTiles suite of digital workplace software products to some of the country’s biggest companies.
Starting life in 2014 as Australian start-up, LiveTiles is now headquartered in the United States, while being publicly-listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), with offices in several capital cities around Australia.
A Microsoft partner, the company provides digital workplace software for the commercial and education markets.
Under the terms of the new deal, Deloitte will resell LiveTiles software to its established customer base, which is predominantly focused on the 200 top companies listed on the ASX.
The publicly-listed software vendor told shareholders that the additional distribution channel offered by the deal is set to accelerate its growth with large enterprise customers, as Deloitte leverages its existing relationships to promote the LiveTiles digital experience platform.
“We are thrilled to form an alliance with Deloitte and combine out unique digital experience platform with Deloitte’s top tier technology consulting practice and strong C-level relationships with large enterprises,” LiveTiles co-founder and CEO, Karl Redenbach, said.
“This alliance provides us with an additional avenue to target the large enterprise market in Australia, supported by Deloitte, which is a well recognised and respected brand in the technology consulting space,” he said.
For partner of Deloitte Consulting’s Performance practice in Australia, Jerry Hsu, the new deal with LiveTiles complements the consulting firm’s existing content and workflow strategy.
“[The alliance] is driven by strong demand by our customers for a flexible, enterprise grade digital workplace tool that allows business users to control their own user experience,” Hsu said. “LiveTiles is perfectly positioned to help Deloitte deliver on this need.”
The new arrangement with Deloitte comes just over a month after LiveTiles moved to expand its operations to the US, appointing former Microsoft executive, Doug Caywood as vice president central USA to target the country’s centre states.
The central US, according to LiveTiles, is home to 27 per cent of the Fortune 500, with the region representing a large and growing opportunity for the company as it looks to continue to grow its enterprise base and further penetrate the US market.
The company recorded a loss of $13.2 million for its 2016 financial year. Excluding non-cash and non-recurring expenses, the loss before tax was $4.87 million.
