Any human partnership worth its weight relies on a few imperatives to keep it strong and give it longevity – things like honesty, fairness, accountability, mutual respect, the right attitude, ability to adjust when factors do and of course, focusing on the mission of commitment, sustaining it long-term and making it work. Unfortunately, not all partnerships do succeed. However, at closer glance, if you are able to maintain constant, open communication around what each one wants, needs and expects of each other, you can establish the foundation and security of a steadfast and meaningful, shared journey. This is what I call next level partnering.
The principles remain the same for a work partnership between a customer and their solution provider – there will be various levels of engagement where you would want to ensure each party is acting in the other’s best interest and at the core, aiming for the provision of world class service on the one side and superior customer experience on the other. As an outcome, operationally you desire simplified processes, improved efficiencies and optimised efforts. You also aspire to gain valuable customer insights and intelligence to make strategic decisions and drive business performance. There are bound to be some negotiations along the way but a good partnership will frankly address any obstacles as they arise whilst still keeping the end goal in mind.
A partner that enables future growth
What is also important is to be able to transition into the future as your environment and demands change. As things evolve, you want to be able to adapt quickly, at all times but with the comfort of knowing you have your dependable advisor by your side. Your company and its people may well be looking to technology as an enabler for future development and growth. However, never underestimate the role of an invaluable partner, someone who can lead the path of transformation into the Cloud, so you can be more effective, more productive and conduct your business smarter – moving you to the next level. You no doubt have an idea of what your objective is but would you not highly appreciate having counsel that can build and own the strategy with you – a collective approach that speaks to a plan of how to move together and where best to focus?
If your partner of choice has a comprehensive solution offering, this is ideal to be able to progress all the traditional interactions and way of work. They should be capable of fitting the pieces together, validating the outcome and owning the resulting solution, together with you and ensure that you are happy and that what has been built, will stand the test of time. In addition, they will offer flexibility to manage your investment and will continue to focus and support you moving forward, while being attentive and dedicated as well.
The success of the overall collaboration will boil down to the solution provider having a deep understanding of the customer’s business and their processes, working well together not only to kick it off but also remain passionate about maintaining it.
