What does it look like to implement new software for your business? Well, that depends on the Microsoft Dynamics consulting partner you choose to help you through the process.
Understanding how a software reseller implements their solutions is key to finding the right partner for you. The approach can make a big difference in how your implementation is handled.
One partner might take a one-size-fits-all approach. This gets the job done quickly but leaves you with a cookie-cutter solution that might not meet all your needs. Another partner might tout a completely customized solution. That takes longer, is more expensive and harder to maintain.
Customizing a proven framework
At Boyer, we understand that no two companies are alike. The way you operate and what you need won’t be exactly the same as another company — even in the same industry.
We’ve also gained enough experience through hundreds of Microsoft Dynamics consulting projects to recognize patterns in our most successful implementations. We’ve taken those patterns and identified six key steps that form the foundation of our methodology framework.
All of our Microsoft software implementations — ERP, CRM and Power Platform — touch on each of these key areas. How much your project focuses on any given part of the process depends on your company’s complexities and needs.
Learning from each other is key to setting a good foundation for a project. The more we understand about your goals in implementing new software, the better we can match you with the right-fit solution. To make sure we’re on the same page, you’ll get a personalized demo of our proposed solution before ever agreeing to a project.
Now that we’ve agreed at a high level what your goals are and selected the right Microsoft solution, it’s time to make sure we understand the nuances of how you operate. Your people, your processes and your current technologies are unique. A series of interactive workshops will give your key stakeholders a chance to share their biggest issues, must-haves and dreams of how they want the software to look.
With a comprehensive picture of what you need in mind, it’s time to start mapping out the plan. Starting with a blueprint gives us the freedom to pivot as needed while we align what we think will work with what you truly need and want.
Now we get to make those dreams a reality and bring the solution to life! Here’s where the technical heavy-lifting gets done, from configuring the software to installing any needed customizations and/or migrating data. We’ll do a lot of training and testing together so you can provide feedback on what’s working well and what needs tweaking.
It’s time to go live! We’ll do final data migration and get the system online. We’ll always check in with you after the system is live to make sure everything is working well and that you’re satisfied with the completed project.
At this point, your initial implementation project is done. But don’t worry — We’re not going to leave you in the lurch. Even a new system might need tweaks as your company continues to evolve. Our tiered Managed Service & Support plans are designed to keep your systems up to date and aligned with your ever-changing needs.
