You might think that changing your support partner is risky and costly. It’s not.
Approximately a third of our customer base has transitioned to us from another partner, and during our 25+ years’ experience in migrating Dynamics users, we have built rigorously tested processes that make the move pain free.
Our team will get to know your business and how you use your software, before compiling and agreeing a sensible migration plan. Preparation is key, and understanding your needs from a business and technology perspective will help us deliver a plan that suits you.
“We have known Acora a long time and they have proven to be a very good partner for us. I am very happy with them as a team as they understand our business and know where we are going. We talk to them regularly about changes to our business and how they can support us.”
Managing Director, Ardent
Common reasons for changing partner
- Poor level of support and aftercare after the initial project
- The initial project didn’t live up to your expectations or failed
- The software is not being optimised to its full capability
- Inadequate training and/or account management
- Lack of experience in client’s industry
Changing partner is easy
Our transition process is designed to ensure an easy and stress-free move:
Step 1: Speak to a member of our team.
So we can understand what services and support you need from us, if you choose to move.
Step 2: Meet with one of our technical experts.
They’ll ask some questions about your business, systems and technology and get to understand your company’s challenges, which will help us understand how best to support you and your team.
Step 3: Agree a migration plan
Once you’ve decided to move partners, we put together a detailed analysis of your business, systems and technology and create a plan to ensure a smooth transition to our Applications support desk.
The process of migration is one that we take very seriously to ensure you don’t suffer any interruption to your service. We’re happy to discuss the implications and process of moving your support to another partner, so feel free to call us for advice.
