What to Consider in an ERP Consulting Partner?

Keep this entry for future references

Companies often struggle with successfully implementing and identifying the best fit Microsoft consulting partner to execute new business applications that meet their requirements. This is due to a lack of ERP implementation experience as well as organizational push-back.  

This blog will present three key factors to consider when looking for an ERP partner: 

1. Required skillset 

The Innovative CFOs and Financial Controllers of the Future

The main factor to keep in mind is the consulting partners’ required skillset to modernize your business transitioning to the cloud. Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a significant investment that organizations should consider to revolutionize their operations (especially when working with on-premise solutions). Ensure your partner has proven qualifications that confirm their skills, personnel, and necessary resources to implement the proper ERP in your organization. 

2. Tech-savvy

Qualified Microsoft partners have software certifications that validate their knowledge of technology. Consider your partner’s ERP functional and tech expertise. It’s crucial to find a partner with ERP implementation experience associated with your required system. Choosing a tech-savvy ERP partner for your business will ensure a positive customer experience.

3. Industry expertise

Contracting the right ERP consulting partner will give your business the strength to overcome future challenges. However, their expertise in deploying Dynamics 365 within your industry must be another characteristic to keep in mind. Many industries involve completely different ERP requirements depending on the sector’s demands.

Essential questions to ask your ERP Consulting Partner:

Besides considering the previous three factors, we want to provide some of the most crucial questions to ask your ERP partner before starting the implementation process to ensure an enhanced result for your business.

Migration capabilities

  • How many migrations have you performed?
  • What client references do you have?

Timing

  • What can you tell me about licensing?
  • Do you have available resources in your plan?

Post-live support

  • How knowledgeable are you with Dynamics 365 ERP solution?
  • What other capabilities can you provide us to support your roadmap?

After considering the given information above, you must also decide in time to reduce risks. An experienced partner will help you anticipate common pitfalls and make your career thrive with a successful ERP implementation. Besides, don’t overlook the consultant’s treatment. A great relationship is essential for a better understanding and to deliver excellent results.
