WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

At Sikich, we’re focused on mitigating your risk and delivering transformative results. It can be a little painful at first, as change is never easy, but when you engage with Sikich, you deal with senior business leaders that are highly-regarded experts in their respective areas of focus.

“They clearly understood our business from a financial and process perspective. They had the manufacturing expertise and systems integration experience. And the Sikich team also provides training and support, so we didn’t have to deal with multiple vendors. That was huge. We’ve made Sikich our trusted advisor, and now we look forward to a long, happy relationship with them.”

7 CRITICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN CHOOSING AN IMPLEMENTATION PARTNER

Your implementing partner can make or break your project. It’s essential that you find the best possible match to complete an effort that can be transformative and set directions for years to come. What should you look for in your CRM or ERP implementation partner? Obviously, technical expertise is important, but some other considerations are just as critical. Here are a few that tend to be necessary, but sometimes overlooked:

1. AVAILABILITY

Do you get to talk to business and technical experts as well as executives? Do people make time to listen to you and discuss your concerns? Do they respond in a timely manner when you pose a question?

2. CULTURE

Does the partner’s workplace culture resemble your own? Do employees seem content and committed?

3. CHEMISTRY

How do you feel after a meeting with the potential partner? Would you welcome extending the experience through a possibly complex and challenging implementation?

4. EMPATHY

Do company representatives communicate in terms you find meaningful? Do they respond well to questions from your executives as well as employees in your business groups?

5. PERSPECTIVE

Does the company understand your industry and business model? Do you get the sense that they appreciate the particular challenges and opportunities you experience?

6. VALUES

What can you learn about the company’s corporate values and ultimate goals? Do they complement your own vision and mission?

7. RECORD

Does the potential partner have customer references to share, and are any of their customers willing to discuss their experience with you?
