What to Look For in an Ecommerce Solution Provider

Price is often the first factor considered when comparing ecommerce solution providers. However, what truly makes or breaks a project is not price, but culture. Before choosing a provider, consider whether your two cultures are a fit. It may seem minor, but implementation is a truly collaborative process and culture fit can have a tremendous impact on the success of the overall project.

Similarly, you want a solution that has proven success and a lengthy history ensuring customer satisfaction and increasing revenue.

Finally, in order to make your ecommerce implementation a success, you’ll want a provider that clearly understands your business. At Hitachi Solutions we do this by asking a lot of questions and immersing ourselves in our clients’ businesses. This results in the ability to apply solutions that are tailored to each specific business.

When looking for an implementation partner, consider the following questions:

Does the partner have a close and lengthy relationship with Microsoft?

Does the partner have a close and lengthy relationship with Microsoft?

How will the partner attempt to fully understand your organization?
