That is to say, their ability to listen to you, to understand your requests, and to calibrate your ambitions, your budgets, and your company in short. Listening here remains essential, you should never favor a consultant who imposes his vision of things. On the other hand, you will have to turn to those who know how to create a lasting and lasting relationship while bringing you and your company.
- Availability and responsiveness: always in a logic of growth and therefore productivity, choosing a good ERP consultant will have to be done on the basis of communication. Availability should be a fundamental point especially if your business is subject to various constraints and unforeseen flows. Responsiveness will also go in this direction: favor reactive and proactive consultants, which will make your relationship with ERP software real assets against your competitors.
- Expertise and pedagogy: two extremely related points. Indeed, if the expertise and knowledge of the proposed software remain important, it will also be necessary to link this aspect with the transmission of knowledge that can be brought through a quality consultant.
