As seasons change with the passing months, and you see yourself switching from the comfort of linen jackets to the warmth of woolly coats, your business needs and requirements will also change as your organisation goes through a transformation, sometimes sooner than you can anticipate leading to you consider external help and prevent being overwhelmed.
There is a fine line between seeking external assistance and handling things in-house, and knowing when to cross this line can be tricky. We have identified some indicators which will ring the bell and alert you that help is needed.
Let’s imagine you are Santa Claus and …
1. Hmm I need to fix that sleigh but don’t know when – You cannot find time to fix your problems
You have a business to run and customers to keep happy. You cannot take time out of your busy schedule to deal with an unexpected IT problem. Sometimes, these issues can be so specific and require bespoke solutions. This means that you require a longer time to find someone who can help you with a solution.
2. Hey! Where are all the letters from the kids? What is this inbox thing? – You are not aware of the latest updates.
Salesforce, like other software, is changing and improving all the time with newer functionality and features and it is impossible for the average business to keep track of these changes and implement them in an efficient way.
3. Say, Rudolph, where are the chimneys? How will I go down? – You cannot spot or react quickly to problems arising
A good Support Partner will be looking after your Salesforce System for you, and if it looks like there is going to be an issue, they can proactively work with you to fix the issue to give you the best user experience. As someone rightly said, Prevention is better than cure.
4. Okay, guys. We have only one night! – Time is more and more precious.
