There is content updated to CBM CONNECT daily in multimedia formats, whether you have two minutes, ten minutes, or an hour, we promise, there’s something here for you. Tune in to the welcome video or continue reading to see how you can get started on CBM CONNECT!
- GETTING STARTED
When you first get to CBM CONNECT, you’re going to see a big pop-up… So, if you don’t have a profile yet, and you’d like to see what’s new with one specific condition monitoring technology, you can select it in this area!
If you’d like to create a profile to see customized content, click “subscribe today”. For example, if you’re only interested in vibration analysis, you can customize your profile to only see the vibration analysis content, or you can select vibration and thermography if you are interested in multiple technologies. Or if you’d just like to see what the website is about, you can click the exit out and you can see everything on the website! If you’ve already created your profile, check the “remember me” box on the login screen to remain logged in.
- CREATE YOUR PROFILE
To create your custom profile, click here or click on the bright blue “view by technology” button in the upper left corner and select “create your profile”. In this area, you can tell us about your preferences.
You’ll also want to opt in to receive the CBM CONNECT DIGEST Newsletter. The DIGEST Newsletter will be emailed to you every two weeks and it highlights the newest content on CBM CONNECT in your preferred technologies. If you designated your areas of interest as alignment and balancing and motor testing, your custom newsletter will only include content from those areas.
In addition, you’ll notice a shortcut panel with three icons in the top right corner of your screen (a filter, a person, and a magnifying glass). If you click the filter, all the condition monitoring technology icons will appear and if you select one, you will be taken to all the newest content in that specific technology. Click on the person icon, and you’ll be able to login or create your profile. As for the magnifying glass, just click and type in what you’re looking for to get started! There are thousands of keywords and tags in the CBM CONNECT network, so type in a person, company or trending topic to see more.
As you may be wondering…What is the price for this? Well, you have two options! You can either browse for free, or you can create a profile, and that’s free too. Now, you can’t argue with that price!
If you create a profile, the system remembers your preferences. You can say, “I’m interested in vibration, and alignment, and balancing,” or whatever else you like – and it remembers all of that. You can choose to be notified of new content every two weeks in the customized DIGEST Newsletter – for free. You’ll receive an email that highlights only the freshest content in areas that you’ve specified interest in.
- FUN FEATURES
SAVE TO MY LIBRARY
One of the coolest features when you create a profile is that you’ll have your own library on CBM CONNECT. So, you might see that there’s this great article or video, and think, “Oh, I just don’t have time for it now,” and you can just click “save to library” and it’s kept there and you can log in and see it later.
YOU MAY ALSO LIKE
Another neat feature on CBM CONNECT is that each piece of content is tagged with relevant key words. So, if you like a certain piece of content in addition to saving it to your library, you can scroll all the way down to the bottom to see the “you may also like” suggestions with pieces of content that share the same tags. This is a quick way to see content by the same author or about a similar topic that you enjoy.
So, where does all the content on CBM CONNECT come from? Firstly, CBM CONNECT has a growing network of more than 500 contributors that share their knowledge, and we also have a global Editorial Board that reviews and creates content. Plus, we have fantastic solution providers that contribute content that explains the latest technologies and provide case studies too.
We want to work with you too! You have experience and stories to share, so please, if you’ve got a great story to tell, contact us. We have an entire production team here at CBM CONNECT to support you in sharing your knowledge, and we can’t wait to hear from you. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
If you have a question to ask, that’s fantastic. The most exciting part about CBM CONNECT is the community, and the discussion that gets started by you sharing your thoughts and experiences. Visitors to CBM CONNECT will see your post and can comment on it or ask questions and engage with you (the author) and other visitors.
