As you work on growing your business, it’s normal to employ the help of third-party professionals. Doing so allows you to redirect your attention to income-generating activities. Alternatively, you can hire a consultant to improve operations and streamline processes to increase revenue.
A Salesforce consulting partner can grow your business by building expertise within, improving practices, and leveraging different tools. Making the most of this solution, however, will entail a thorough screening process to ensure the right partner for your business.
Although doing your research provides valuable information on candidates, talking to them can provide you with better insights.
Each candidate has their own work method. Some might be more strategic, while others can hit the ground running. Asking them how they approach their work helps you decide if they are compatible with your business and work culture.
A Salesforce consulting partner may introduce changes to your business. Your ability to adapt and implement these changes is partly dependent on the partner’s processes. When interviewing candidates, make sure to ask them about their implementation system, specifically regarding the steps you’ll have to accomplish to complete the project.
Ask each candidate who the key players are on both ends. It helps you determine who will be involved in the implementation within your business. Additionally, it tells you who your team will be working with on their end.
Each candidate will have their set timelines. These are subject to change once the partner has finalized their plans for your business. By asking them about their timeline’s flexibility beforehand, you two can come to a compromise that still leads to success.
There are several costs associated with Salesforce solutions, including the research and planning process and the training sessions. These costs can increase as you ask for customizations. Ask each candidate about their pricing to determine if your budget can handle their services. Request for a quote to understand better what you will pay for.
All of these questions will help you determine how well a candidate can meet your expectations. You may also use this opportunity to determine each candidate’s expertise. Make sure you choose the right candidate for your business to make the most out of this partnership.
