For those business owners and managers looking to improve systems and processes within their company, one of the most significant decisions will be picking a cloud-based software expert to partner with throughout implementation.
The first question to ask is whether you need a cloud-based software expert to aid you in the process or if you can do it alone. At Adept Cloud we never recommend our services unless we feel we are the ideal partner to suit you and we cater our package to suit the extent of your requirements.
What is a Cloud Cloud-Based Software Implementation Partner?
A Cloud-Based Software Implementation Partner is a company independent of the software they are implementing. In Adept Cloud’s case we are Zoho Trusted Partners so specialise in the Zoho One suite’s implementation. We are also partners of simPRO (meaning we also excel delivering this powerful job management solution, trusted by more than 150,000 field service businesses globally), Microsoft 365 (the ideal software for team collaboration with access to the full Microsoft Suite) and Shopify (allowing us to provide you with a solution whether an ambitious entrepreneur starting an online business, moving your current business online or switching e-commerce platform). We excel with a range of other cloud-based software so chat with us today if you’d like to know about any other products.
Working with an implementation partner such as Adept Cloud gives you the best chance at a successful implementation of the software, especially if you have more complex requirements.
Some benefits of working with Adept Cloud –
- Accelerate learning within your team of the new software.
- Create more time for you team to focus on everyday work as we implement the software.
- Accurate configuration of cloud-based software to correctly meet the requirements of your business.
- Transfer knowledge to members of your team so they can become ‘champions’ of the new system.
- Give members of your team the knowledge to be the thought leaders around the software going forward.
- Ongoing support as your use of the system moves forward.
Why Use Authorised Partners?
We have mentioned that Adept Cloud are authorised partners of several of the top cloud-based software products but why is that so important?
There are thousands of businesses offering cloud-based software implementation but those of us listed as authorised partners are officially approved by the software vendor as trusted to deliver these products to an exceptional standard. We have gone through a certification process proving we have the suitable skills and resources to deliver services for each software. To check if an implementation partner is indeed official you can do some of the following –
- Check our websites for partner listings
- Go direct to the vendor and ask about authorised partners
- Ask for evidence of the partnership directly from us and the duration for which we have been approved
Further Skillsets Required of your Cloud-Based Software Partners
Several further considerations should be taken when selecting your partner; do they have a ranged skillset to deliver on your complex project, do they have a skilled developer amongst their ranks? Most implementations will require API integration and scripting, having a team, including a developer that can help you with that is obviously essential in delivering on a project.
What is their early-stage engagement like? At Adept Cloud we follow a structured process, giving a clear pricing structure, and comprehensively answering questions about the software functionality as we craft a scope to fulfil your needs. We don’t just say ‘yes’ to everything, making certain that we are in fact the best partner to deliver on your requirements before taking any job, and we always tell you if there is some functionality that cannot be achieved!
