We would love to hear your thoughts.

Salesforce development and implementation partners come in all shapes and sizes.

Roughly speaking, you’ve got one clear choice to make: should you go with a proven global partner with an established track record, or a smaller, more agile partner that can help you innovate and take a fresh approach to development?

On the surface, it would be easy to think that small development partners and large businesses shouldn’t mix. They work differently, their processes and operations contrast each other completely, and there’s a huge difference between their cultures.

But, in practice, all of those are actually reasons why the two work so well together. Outsourcing Salesforce development projects is an opportunity to bring fresh perspectives into your business, and that’s exactly what engaging with a smaller partner does for established multinational businesses.

Your agile partner will view your challenges in a different way, offering unique insight that your business may have missed. They’ll bring a new level of excitement and enthusiasm for your projects that can have a profound impact on the culture of your current teams. And, they’ll work tirelessly to impress you and build a lasting relationship with your organisation.

Quite simply, the two work perfectly together – with industry analysts such as Gartner agreeing that big businesses have a huge amount to gain by working with and learning from smaller, leaner, more agile partners.

Here at Desynit, a small agile development partner, we have clearly got a horse in this race. However, we have spent some time recently researching opinion on this subject to come up with a balanced view on the subject. The results will be published in our upcoming ‘Partnering for Success’ guide.

What would be really great is if we could reflect the wider industry voice in this content. That’s why we would like to incorporate your views and experience on the subject.

So our question for you is:-

With your permission, a selection of representative quotes will be included in the guide.

If you would like a sneak preview of the guide, again email me and I will send you our beta version so you can get a better idea of the context.
