International Microsoft Dynamics Partner

Why you should choose an international partner for your international Microsoft Dynamics projects.

Being an international company, you have an urge to align your business and application landscape across subsidiaries to drive future growth. To succeed, you need one global partner to advise you and drive your business transformation at headquarters and across every single subsidiary around the world.

An international Microsoft Dynamics project doesn’t need to be a long and complex process. However, to succeed you may need an experienced international partner guiding you. An international Microsoft Dynamics partner can act as your strategic partner, helping your company navigate the complexities of expanding into global markets while leveraging the capabilities of the Microsoft Dynamics platform. In essence, an international partner can contribute to smoother operations, improved efficiency, and better decision-making as you establish and grow your international presence.

Back in 2001 when PIPOL was founded, we realized that international companies struggled with ERP. They were forced to engage different partners country by country which resulted in numerous challenges. Local partners were working in different ways which led to diverse implementations of the common solution. Over time, the headquarter vision of having one, common business platform was jeopardized, and synergies could not be realized. We wanted to change that.

PIPOL is a true international Microsoft Dynamics partner. We are specialized in centrally managing international implementations of Microsoft Dynamics 365. With +100 committed partners in +85 countries, we can help end-customers with international implementations globally. Through our extensive global partner network, we are present on-site for implementation, maintenance, and support. We speak your language and understand the local regulations and business culture. Moreover, we specialize in local industries, offering valuable solutions or unique product suites as part of our Dynamics capabilities. Our network of local implementation partners is key to ensuring that our deliveries are always agile, smart, and successful.

With PIPOL, you get one global solution, one global delivery framework, one global contract, one global team, and – very importantly – one single point of responsibility for the entire delivery wherever in the world you operate.

PIPOL has one agenda only: To make business transformation simple for international companies.

Let’s dive deeper into the benefits of working with one international Microsoft Dynamics partner vs. individual local partners.

1. What are the key benefits of working with an international Microsoft Dynamics partner?

One global alliance
Working with PIPOL as your international Microsoft Dynamics partner is like working with one global alliance of partners. PIPOL act as the facilitator, and our local partners work with your local entities. Since 2001, we have continuously developed our international know-how and refined our unique delivery framework which is readily available for your business to tap into.

A well thought-through implementation strategy
If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail – and there’s a very high risk of failure if you try to implement Dynamics 365 without a well thought-through implementation strategy. Working with an international Microsoft Dynamics partner like PIPOL means you’ll have access to the expertise needed to help you strategically plan your project. Our partners can offer advice on the technical aspects both before and during the execution. Plus, they can help plan and coordinate the different implementation phases and ensure that all stakeholders are aligned at all times.

Access to services
You get access to a variety of services that are imperative for your business transformation journey, such as strategic business services, capability and maturity assessment services, and change management services. PIPOL cooperates with external consultancy experts in different fields that all contribute to making business transformation better and simpler for international companies. Our services improve efficiency, boost customer experiences, eliminate unnecessary manual tasks, saves time and money, and helps you manage the organizational transformation that comes along with the overall business transformation.

Centralized management
With one global partner, you get control of your entire international business – from headquarter to each subsidiary, from data to security and compliance. With a centrally managed framework we handle multiple rollouts across multiple sites and countries. You reap the benefits of central governance because you use the same solution and implement it the same way across your international business. The numerous processes are repeatable from country to country. Further, with one global contract governing worldwide service delivery, you reduce complexity and ensure that the services provided in each country are adapted to each subsidiary’s needs – in local language, local time zone, and at local rates.

Best practices vs. best fit
We have been doing multi-country ERP implementations for decades. We know the pitfalls when implementing large IT projects, and we help you eliminate them. We also understand when it’s time for best practice or best fit. Depending on the industry you work in and your company structure, one size may fit all subsidiaries. However, for many companies, one size doesn’t fit all, and local adaptation is needed. Different local legislation, account plans, infrastructure, organizational cultures, and languages are typical trade-offs. It is an act of balance when deciding on best practices vs. best fits.

Access to experts in +85 countries
Today, PIPOL is still the only global partner specialized in working with international companies, and through our partner network of +100 partners, we are present in +85 countries, have 500+ projects under our belt, and 4,500 consultants in our partner alliance. PIPOL is a subsidiary of BE-terna Group, one of the leading suppliers of ERP, CRM, and Data Analytics & AI in Europe.

2. What are the key benefits of working with our +100 partners?

Local support
Our partners are present on-site for implementation, maintenance, and support. Plus, they speak your language and understand the local regulations and business culture. PIPOL partners specialize in key local industries, offering valuable solutions or unique product suites as part of their Dynamics 365 capabilities. Furthermore, they have knowledge of all solutions, add-ons, and techniques relevant to Microsoft Dynamics so they’re capable of offering full-fledged total solutions.

Local advice and guidance
Working with an experienced implementation partner allows you to analyze your organization’s processes and procedures from a fresh perspective. Besides bringing their local expertise, PIPOL partners can offer impartial advice and guidance during discussions around what Dynamics 365 capabilities your organization wants to use while ensuring you get the solution that’s right for you. They can also help set up reporting and analytics tools to provide insights into your global operations performance. Whether your international Dynamics 365 solution is on premise or in the cloud, you should not worry about compliance anywhere in the world. This is where local partners make a huge difference. They know the dos and don’ts in each country and ensure that all local regulations and compliance requirements are being met.

User training
Organizations who embark on international implementation projects without the assistance of an international Microsoft Dynamics partner face many challenges not least when it comes to user training. When you implement an ERP solution, you are fundamentally changing the way people work so it’s important to get strong buy-in from the entire organization. Your ERP implementation partner can help ensure user-involvement in the implementation process by gathering their input and guidance along the way. This also helps ensure that everyone understands and accepts the project objectives. Then when the solution nears launch, your partner can help prioritize training to ensure users are comfortable with the system and understand its benefits, both to them and the business.

3. How do we select the best partners for our alliance?

PIPOL’s recruitment criteria when looking for new partners are very selective. We require a proven history of successful Microsoft Dynamics implementations, the capability to work on international deals, and the willingness to enter a long-term committed partnership.

We hand-pick our partners to ensure that each and every PIPOL implementation, no matter where it occurs, leverages our partners’ deep experience with local industries, customs, and ways of doing business. In addition, our partners need to be local market leaders and have a strategic match with the PIPOL Alliance when it comes to true customer orientation and proactively building up new business.

Furthermore, PIPOL partners have access to all our international sales and marketing support, so they can leverage ready-to-use international marketing collateral, developed to support local marketing efforts targeted toward international organizations.

4. Why choose us?

Together with our global alliance of partners, PIPOL’s strength is international implementations of Microsoft Dynamics 365. We support projects involving companies with multiple offices around the world. An international implementation made by the right local partners for your business means the absolute best ROI for international projects.

Our agenda is to make business transformation simple and successful for international companies. Our delivery framework allows us to centrally manage any international implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365 from A to Z and across all major industries. We offer one global solution, one global delivery framework, one global contract, one global team, and – very importantly – one single point of responsibility for the entire delivery wherever in the world you operate.

We work closely with our partners to unify their services with our unique know-how and experience in multisite implementations. When a solution has been deployed in one location, we can ensure a seamless deployment across all locations. By acting as a single point of contact, we offer a smooth ERP path, from strategy and solution choice all the way to implementation and follow-up. This saves time, resources, and worry for our customers.

Moreover, the PIPOL Alliance gives partners access to our entire global network of Microsoft Dynamics ERP specialists and resources, regardless of whether you need support with a local or an international project.

Let us help you find the right partner for your organization.
