Not all ERP implementation partners are created equal. Who you choose as your partner can make a world of difference. In fact, while every ERP Partner might claim to offer what you need, there are key differences between each one. The right partner will professionally manage the project to deliver a system that fuels your business’s growth. The wrong partner will stumble through the process, and make the implementation more costly and time-consuming than you can afford it to be.
So how can you make the right choice? Ask tougher questions. Every potential partner is ready to answer the common questions thrown at them. But how each one responds to the tougher questions will give insight into whether or not they are right for you.
The Right Partner
A great technology partner will welcome the tough questions, eager to share what makes them unique. They will be transparent about the services they’ve performed in the past and will make a clear, detailed plan on how they intend to help your company with its specific needs. Their services team will help provide you with complete, honest responses.
The Wrong Partner
The wrong partner will be unable to give satisfying answers to your tough questions. Instead of outlining how they will address your specific issues, they might throw an “out-of-the-box” solution at you. They could have a poor track record and are unwilling to help overcome unforeseen problems during the implementation process.
