You have taken the right step forward by selecting SAP Business One as your choice of ERP system. But the tricky part is just around the corner – choosing the right partner to implement and support you in your various business needs. With the right SAP partner, you can get the right balance of integration and customization for your business.
If the implementation is not fashioned and managed by experts who know what they are doing and have the necessary skills, even the greatest software deployment can go terribly wrong. An inaptly done implementation can result in astronomical costs that put your company in jeopardy. Most cannot afford to abandon their ERP project after time, money and resources have been invested. At the end of the day, your business needs their ROI quickly which happens only if you couple the software with a right implementation partner.
Do your homework early on for assessing potential partners who can be the right fit for your business and for what you want to achieve through your ERP implementation.
Is my partner fit for the purpose?
Determine whether your implementation is a purely technical upgrade, or an enterprise-wide consolidation and process harmonization. Both require partners of different tools, methodology and functional teams. Therefore, your partner should be fit to meet your requirements, no matter how big or small.
Does my partner possess the experience of handling similar implementation?
Choose a partner who is not only familiar with the implementation of similar size and scope of your project but also has experience with the various SAP functional modules. Check out the customer portfolio and ask for references.
Does my partner have the vertical expertise?
Domain knowledge and industry expertise in the mentioned area as well as understanding the various requirements of the business is mandatory for a successful implementation. So, choose your partner after carefully considering all these aspects.
Is my partner fit for my office culture?
SAP implementation could take more time with consultants and internal people working side by side in a collaborative way. Sharing similar values and work cultures thereby enhance the success of the venture.
What else does my partner offer apart from the implementation?
Not just implementation, but services like training and support, licensing, add-ons development, hardware and service solutions, up-gradation services would ensure an overall solution right from the pre-deployment consultation to post-deployment service of your ERP software.
