    Choosing Velosio as Your Dynamics 365 Implementation Partner

    The success of your software implementation can grind to an unfortunate halt if your users won’t readily adopt the new platform you’ve installed. With proven solutions like the Dynamics 365 suite, the only reason this could happen would be if the solution wasn’t implemented well in the first place, or if insufficient user training was provided.

    This makes it critical to make the right selection of implementation partner, and the simplest way to accelerate that all-important decision is to disregard the bottom 99% of available partners.

    Focus instead on the top 1% of Microsoft Dynamics 365 partners worldwide. Since you surely want to take the fullest advantage of the extensive integration opportunities Microsoft presents, also eliminate any partners who don’t support Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, Azure and the Power Platform. Any partner who can manage all that with excellence is clearly the kind of highly resourced-partner you’re looking for.

    Remember that you’re implementing Dynamics 365 to support your business, so you’ll want to work with a partner organization that includes not only technology experts but also experienced professionals from your own industry. People who speak your language. People who will understand and fully appreciate your concerns, your needs, and your requirements.

    Finally, think about growth. Your company’s growth. You want a partner that can not only expand to accommodate and support your organization as it grows, a partner who helps companies like yours grow. Make the final ingredient you seek innovation. Find yourself a partner who has gone so far as to create new applications to support requirements from previous customers and now makes those innovative products available to you.

    This is how we define “partner.”

    Final Thoughts

    A good partner ensures Microsoft Dynamics migrations, implementations, and whatever’s “next” goes as smoothly as possible. You’ll still need to put in the work to make that happen. We’re talking about investing in culture, training, and developing a plan to ensure effective partner collaboration.

    Velosio is among Microsoft’s top 1% of high-performing partners. We offer a robust portfolio of solutions & services aimed at helping clients reap the benefits of D365 faster and optimizing for growth.
