Getting the Most Out of your Microsoft Dynamics Partner

No Comments

Microsoft Certified Partner LogoThere is a whole world out there of Microsoft Dynamics partners. It’s a burgeoning business that has some absolutely massive money involved all around. You need to be able to figure out which one to go with. So in this article we want to help you with that. You may save some money in the long run if you follow these simple tips.

Watching out for unscrupulous partners who make promises they cannot keep. There are a huge number of different companies that just want to get money out of you. Always check every single contract and agreement. Hold your provider to the promises they have made or drop them. You may even have to take legal action if things get bad but if you find a decent provider then you can avoid most of this.

Be sure to compare the various Microsoft Dynamics partners that are out there. Don’t just choose one. Go over each package they offer and see which one gives you the most bells and whistles for your money. There are a few things that any of them should have:

  • A competent and caring support staff that is available
  • Additional training for your people when using the software
  • Hardware that meets all the industry standards
  • Software that is accredited by the core company

Many of them already have this so that doesn’t simplify it that much. Take some time to talk with representatives of each one and see which one fits best with your business. You may find one that is perfectly tailored to work with your people in your area of business.

Another thing to consider is how much money you will actually be saving in the long run. Some of them provide spectacular service but may cost you more than any other solution. While others may be cheap but have terrible performance. With hundreds of choices you need to weigh price versus performance.

One of the best ways to do this is to talk with former customers of a Microsoft Dynamics partner. They can tell you much more information than other sources. You want to find a real human being at a company that used them. Never depend on online reviews. There is a very good reason for that.

With so much money on the line competition in this area is fierce. Many of the less scrupulous companies hire online marketers to pose as normal customers. They then have them go on social sites and badmouth the other products. They then have them say good things about their own products as well in order to distort the overall picture that people are getting.

If you don’t have anyone who works on Microsoft Dynamics and related products exclusively at your company than this is probably an excellent choice for you all around. It can save you a ton of time and headaches later to just have someone handle everything for you. However you should discuss things with your team and decide along with them soon.
