How to do you know if you’re choosing the right partner?
To help you determine if you are getting the right implementation partner, here’s a list of considerations you might want to ask about when you are vetting your options:
- Does the partner have deep knowledge of the solution, and understand how to deploy in a way that solves your business issues?
- Does the implementation partner know how to leverage standard elements of the solution and only develop customized options when absolutely necessary?
- Is the implementation partner going to be there after the go-live, ready to transfer knowledge with a customized training plan?
- Do they offer support?
- Are they capable of helping you model your business for the future with iterations and a plan for future upgrades?
