What do You Gain by Working with an Implementation Partner?

Congratulations, your firm just purchased licenses to the best software and agreements for the best IT solutions on the market! Now how do you get started? 

There are many complex and effective IT and software solutions on the marketplace in tandem with a myriad of various industries. It’s likely that your firm has very niche, domain-specific requirements and business processes. Then you must ask, should we implement the new solution in-house or outsource it to a specialist?  

There are pros and cons for both scenarios depending on your resources. However, most of the time companies seek out a Microsoft partner because implementation and consulting partner can provide you with the right Domain Level Expertise and consultative guidance to tailor complex business applications and IT solutions to fit your needs. If you’re still unconvinced of the benefits of an implementation partner, here are a few more reasons.

Partners can Become Your Trusted Advisor 

Instead of going to resellers that always try to upsell you, a partner can become a trusted advisor for your business. The right partner understands your business and can help you understand how IT can solve your current pain points, make the most informed business decisions, and meet your future business goals. An experienced Partner can inform you of opportunities for new licensing models or recommend how to manage applications via a mixture of on-premise, hosted, or a total cloud deployment that could help you save money for example.

Best Value for Money and Deliverables  

As many have learned, cheap products or services will inevitably cost you more time and money in the long run. More time and money spent on IT support, fixing errors, or even the possibility of scrapping the whole solution and redoing it. So why not invest the resources the first time and get a solution you’re satisfied with on the first try? 

A current example is Microsoft Teams. Although the startup costs for Teams have been substantially reduced in light of COVID-19, many firms will need guidance and assistance on how to effectively learn, use and tailor teams effectively for their environment to get the most out of it for their advantage. That is clearly what a Microsoft Gold implementation partner like KTL solutions can provide.

Since there are thousands of Microsoft Partners available, there are partners that specialize in specific industry domains. You are guaranteed to find a partner that understands both your industry domain and the best practices for your industry solutions. Working with a domain specialized partner gives you the best assurance at receiving your desired deliverables.  

Microsoft Certified Partners are Full of Resources 

Microsoft offers 2 levels of competencies, Silver and Gold. As Microsoft’s solutions change and adapt, so does the requirements for these competencies. That means if a partner has been a long-term Microsoft Gold-Certified partner, it indicates the partner is continuously delivering quality services and meeting the rigorous standards set by Microsoft year after year. Working with a certified partner means working with a team that knows how to leverage the latest Microsoft technology to meet your business needs.  

Additionally, Gold Partners are directly connected to Microsoft, meaning they have access to advanced support and are allocated funds to help increase sales. If they need to open a support case for any reason, they have the ability to escalate a case when needed and are most likely receiving a faster response time from Microsoft. Microsoft also offers Gold Partners funds to deliver customers proofs-of-concept so they can test out the demo environment before committing to the solution.
