Selecting the best Systems Integrator for You
In today’s world, businesses are increasingly seeking more efficiently-connected working systems. Working with a systems integrator company brings many benefits for your business to thrive.
As a systems integrator company, we know we bring a lot of value to businesses seeking our services. If you are looking to better focus on your core business, opting to work with a system integrator can often prove to be more cost-effective than employing an in-house expert. Another important factor is keeping apace with new technology: it takes a dedicated team to keep your systems up-to-date, but it is indispensable for a systems integrator company to know and invest in new technology. Moreover, as systems integrators work within various industries, meaning they will have cross-industry experience to benefit your business.
If you have decided to opt for the benefits of a specialist systems integration company, what should you look out for?
There are several criteria to seek in a potential systems integrator, and given there are many competitors, finding the best fit is essential. Look out for:
Skills, demonstration of problem-solving skills;
Method, tried and tested methods for successful integrations;
Tools, proficiency in coding languages, frameworks and integration platforms;
Experience, successful integration portfolio;
Speed, bandwidth to start your project on your desired date.
You should also learn about the three different kinds of systems integrator companies:
Newcomer systems integrators are usually young businesses often specialising in particular technologies or industries. These tend to be flexible with pricing, disadvantages include staff limitations, slower turnaround times and a lack of established processes.
Large systems integrators are international companies with recognisable brand names and reputations, offering a broader range of integration expertise, but bigger price tags and a lower level of in-depth expertise per project.
Boutique systems integrators, just like ourselves at Valtec, are a hybrid, combining the flexibility of smaller companies with the experience of larger ones, allowing us to cater for both large and small enterprises due to our capacity of working on multiple projects.
