What to look for in a Microsoft Dynamics Partner


When it comes to support services for Dynamics 365 Business Central, the parallels with a successful marriage are more striking than one might think. The commitment, trust, and ongoing care necessary in a successful marriage bear an uncanny resemblance to what's required to maintain a robust and reliable support system for your Business Central operations.


Sadly, just like in the real-world where not all marriages last, the same thing can happen with the partnership you have with your current Microsoft Dynamics provider without the long-term commitment, trust, effective communication, adaptability, and collaborative problem-solving.


Before making the decision to switch Dynamics partners, it's crucial to identify to what led you to this juncture. You can ask yourself these questions to assess if it warrants a change partner:

  1. Is your current Dynamics partner unable to meet your expectations in terms of support quality, responsiveness or overall satisfaction?

  2. Does your business require specialized knowledge but your current partner lacks the necessary expertise, hence, hindering your system's performance and potential?

  3. Are there delays in their support responses and issue resolution that disrupt your business operations and lead to your user's frustrations?

  4. Does your business need more specialized support tailored to your unique industry or operational challenges that your current partner is unable to provide?

Having recognized the need for a change in your Microsoft Dynamics partner, the next crucial step is to find and identify a new partner who can truly align with your business goals and requirements. It will involve thorough research and selection so to help you out with this process, here are six of the qualities you should watch out for in your next Microsoft Dynamics partner.


1. Comprehensive Expertise.


It’s important your partner has a wealth of experience to provide the best practice implementation and support services that your business needs. For example, Systema Solutions has a combined experience of 30 years in the IT industry and has successfully completed over hundreds of NAV/Business Central implementation for SMBs.
