Solution Provider Outlines Three Key Ways to Manage International IT Transactions
NEW YORK, December 19, 2017 – Multi-national firms sometimes find international IT projects challenging due to the complexity of managing and coordinating a rollout of such magnitude. In addition to the intricacies of the technology itself, there are a myriad of decisions to be made along the way – and making even the slightest mistake in any of them can easily derail a project’s success. As a result, it’s critical to choose the right solution provider partner from the start. According to Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), there are three important things a multi-national client should look for before engaging any solution provider as a partner for an international IT project: (1) The solution provider should have a deep understanding of the local business practices in each country in which the client organization does business. (2) It should have a framework for delivering consistency of professional and managed services worldwide. (3) And, perhaps most importantly, the solution provider should offer a tiered model for transacting business that takes tax advantages, centralized payment processes and project control into account.
“At Logicalis, our international customers often tell us that it’s our attention to detail that is most important to them,” says Laura Vaupel, Director, International Sales, Logicalis US. “Consider how important even the smallest of details – like knowing each country’s unique power cord standards – can be to the success of a multi-national IT project. There are also currency differences and tax initiatives to take into account, which is why having a variety of ways for a client to manage their international transactions is one of the most crucial things to look for in a solution provider as a partner for international IT rollouts.”
One of the most important ways a solution provider can assist an organization with its multi-national IT project is to help the client select the best way to manage its international transactions. In addition to the following options, there should also be a myriad of other choices available under each of these broad categories. When selecting a solution provider partner, be sure to assess their ability to deliver in each of these three key areas.
Additionally, while having different operations in many countries may technically qualify a solution provider as a “global” entity, something more is needed.It’s important that any solution provider an organization selects as its international IT business partner has a framework in place that ensures consistency in the professional and managed services they provide regardless of geography. Logicalis, for example, delivers a seamless customer experience globally through its Common Services Platform, a framework based on standard ITIL processes. This framework was instrumental in helping Logicalis achieve Cisco Global Gold certification, a testament to the quality and consistency of its worldwide services and support. Therefore, to be a true partner, a solution provider should be able to deliver repeatable, consistent services across all participating geographies while still being able to remain flexible and agile in meeting the client organization’s unique regional needs.
