The One About Upgrades

T

he products you work with are in a near constant state of change. Whether through timed releases or constant updates to a cloud-based solution, there are always new things to learn, share, and teach after an upgrade. We wanted to pursue how the concept of upgrades can apply to your business rather than to the software you implement and/or create for others. Bonnie Robertson addresses this in “Step Back to Move Forward” (see page 16). Joe Mechlinski urges you to “See Change Differently” in his piece on page 18. Adrianne Machina asks if you’re “Keeping Up with the Times…or the Joneses”, starting on page 22. You’ll also read part two of our “All in the Family” feature, taking a look at four more “dynamic” families (read about them on pages 42-45) as well as an interview with Neil Holloway, vice president of sales and operations for Microsoft Dynamics, starting on page 26. Returning yet again is the congratulatory spread (see pages 50-51) for the 2013 Microsoft Dynamics® Inner Circle, President’s Club, and Partner award recipients. Congratulations to all of these organizations on a job well done over the last year. Please join me in thanking our contributors, advertisers, and participants in The List for helping us produce another magazine. We are in our 10th year of production because of you, and our gratitude is deep. And certainly not least, thank you to our readers. The above-mentioned keep the magazine going out the door, but if you didn’t find value once it hit your hands, we certainly wouldn’t be here today. Sincerely,

Membership Program Manager Jasmine McNellis

INTERVIEW WITH

Neil Holloway

On the Cover The first patent for a wrench was granted in 1835 to Solymon Merrick (incidently, a man who is throwing a “wrench” in this blurb because there is little to no information about him available online. No listed information on when he was born, when he died, where he lived, education, family, or his occupation. Would somebody really use a pen name for a wrench patent? Or did he see the pitfalls of fame and fortune coming and want none of it? Interesting…). You would be shocked to learn how many wrench types have evolved since that fateful day in 1835. To name a few, you can employ the use of a box-end, socket, crowfoot, speed, torque, monkey, alligator, cone, or lug wrench. So many variations for this handy tool. Source: Wikipedia

ON THE

HOMEFRONT

Thanks for the Endorsement,

I THINK story by *%..9$!6)3

T

here seems to be a LinkedIn upgrade that’s all the rage: endorsements. Please don’t think I say this with any trace of ego, but it seems like I’ve been endorsed for a lot of things lately. Both for things I’ve done and things that I really don’t know much about (in that category is removing these errant endorsements). Maybe I’m to blame, as I seem to remember spending a few moments on LinkedIn one day, clicking a few boxes that described work I had done over the years. A disconnected amount of time later, I started to get these endorsement notices from both people I knew and people I didn’t quite recognize (I admit it: Sometimes I’m a little loose with the LinkedIn invite requests. If your title says something about Microsoft Dynamics, I’d like to know you.).

7()#("2).'3-%4/4(% 15%34)/.x Do the endorsements actually mean something if the people who give them haven’t actually worked with me to see these endorsements in action? It could be the Norwegian in me, but it feels a little off to accept these virtual kudos. I’m sure that LinkedIn has a master scheme of staying relevant in our lives and providing value to a business community, but at what point are we just throwing accolades at each other to flesh out a profile versus providing real value and networking opportunities?

Conversely, is there a little part of us that is complimenting somebody via endorsement in hopes that we’ll get one back? Or is it really just a way to get rid of that blue box that pops up at the top of your LinkedIn profile and feels like the right thing to do?

7()#("2).'3-%4/4(% /"3%26!4)/.x While it’s hard to accept these endorsements, it does feel nice to give them to others. I log into LinkedIn, see your smiling faces, and why wouldn’t I want to say that you’re good at XYZ? Especially when I know that you are. Obviously you’re good at what you do if you’re still employed, right? You wily thing, LinkedIn, I’ve fallen directly into your trap. Next thing you know I’ll be focused on “All Star” status on maintaining my profile to your high standards. It will be interesting to see if the endorsements stick around and if they are beneficial to LinkedIn users. The thought behind it is legitimate – have peers endorse each other for their work, but that brings me back to the original question: If those peers haven’t seen that skill in action, should it really be endorsed? I have no real answers on this topic; just questions. That’s the beauty of a column, I guess. I can put my thoughts out there and see what you think. However, this assumes you will tell me what you think. Please drop me a line at Jenny@ thepartnerchannel.com and share your thoughts about these endorsements.

NEWS Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, has announced that it has been named as a Great Supply Chain Partner by SupplyChainBrain. The 2013 Great Supply Chain Partner 100 List highlights technology implementations that have had a transformative impact on supply chain companies. SupplyChainBrain received nominations for hundreds of trading partners, across all areas of supply chain management, during its six-month online poll in which supply chain professionals were asked to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service, and overall supply chain performance. Accellos appeared in the 2013 July/August issue of SupplyChainBrain magazine as a celebrated member of this year’s 100 Great Supply Chain Partner elite crew. AdvTrex, a Microsoft Dynamics Silver Certified Partner and ISV, is pleased to welcome Steve Stratton to its sales and channel development team. Steve has been working in the ERP software industry for more than 13 years, beginning with JD Edwards. While the majority of his career found him immersed in sales and the acquisitions of technology companies, recent years had him taking on more functional roles as a sales representative in the Microsoft Dynamics channel.  Steve has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of ERP, sales, and business process that will directly impact his current position in sales at AdvTrex. He holds a degree in mathematics/computer science. In July, former president of Diamond Municipal Solutions and most recently director of Microsoft Dynamics Partner programs and strategy at Microsoft Canada, Ron Budreau joined Altus Dynamics as COO. Ron has responsibility for the client services division, overseeing all Microsoft Dynamics ERP and

CRM implementation projects. While at Microsoft, Ron was a driving force in the development of the Microsoft Dynamics Partner ecosystem and a key contributor to the great business results the Microsoft Dynamics team achieved. Collins Computing Inc. was named as a Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club recipient for the 17th year of its 27-year history! Worldwide, Microsoft has many thousands of Partners but fewer than five percent of those Microsoft Dynamics resellers were honored for their accomplishments in the field of midmarket financial software in 2013. DFC Consultants is now accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) for its positive track record, honesty, transparency, and integrity. The accreditation confirms DFC Consultants as a trustworthy company committed to exceptional customer service and to elevating the integrity of businesses in today’s marketplace. DFC Consultants has achieved an A+ rating from the BBB. DynamicPoint’s SharePoint Expense Management product accommodates Canadian tax requirements with full integration to Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV. In Canada it is imperative that the employer collects the amount of an expense that is related to GST, PST, and HST when an employee completes an expense report. The DynamicPoint Expense Management application not only accommodates this requirement at the point of data collection during the creation of an expense report, but also automatically records the various tax amounts to the specific GL accounts. Dynamics Anywhere, a one-stop shop for mobile solutions, now offers a new hybrid framework that includes mobile solution development 100 percent inside of Microsoft

Dynamics AX. This enables users to leverage their current Microsoft Dynamics AX skills to customize Dynamics Anywhere solutions or to create their own. The framework also enables the ability to synchronize data to a device and work offline as well as online, ensuring continued user access to information and processes, even when not connected. The framework is HTML5 browser-based client and supports various operating systems (including iOS/Android/Windows) while offering a rich user interface. No extra client software is needed, and the single environment enables support of online and offline solutions. Learn more at www.dynamicsanywhere.com. Encore Business Solutions, a leading ERP reseller and ISV, has been named to Microsoft Dynamics 2013 Inner Circle and, for the 16th time, Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club. Encore was also selected as one of only three finalists for the Microsoft Dynamics Canadian Partner of the Year award. These multiple awards and recognition are a direct result of Encore’s deep expertise and reputation for continual, committed efforts at maintaining a high standard of delivering valuable services and solutions that help its clients achieve increased success. Gorilla Expense is pleased to announce two major updates: the latest release of its Integration Manager and the ability to enter VAT/GST amounts to expenses through its mobile app. The updated Integration Manager provides additional mapping options and allows clients to push T&E expense data to Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Microsoft Dynamics GP with the single click of a button. Gorilla Expense was also honored to be selected from several companies by Microsoft last year at the prestigious DEMO conference for demonstrating product innovation. Learn more at www.gorillaexpense.com.

I

t is that time of year. There is something about the fall season that makes me want to renovate, refresh, redo, or even just clean out a closet (which is always needed in my life). I am not sure if it is because of years of getting ready for “back to schoolâ€?, or if it is a holdover of listening to Mother Nature on the prairie saying “get organizedâ€? for winter. Regardless, the concept of rebooting and rethinking stirs something in me that provides an opportunity to refresh the way that I view the world and myself in it. In business, such as in life, it is essential for growth and evolution to periodically step back, assess, and decide how to move forward. While most businesses are constantly evolving and improving, the reboot/refresh serves an organization dierently and involves the process of looking at the business through dierent eyes. As part of our process of adapting, we get used to the way things are around us. Without being consciously aware of our surroundings, we can take greatness for granted. We may begin to overlook problems. Some of those problems can grow into barriers for future growth. Cleaning and reorganizing a closet or remodeling a room in the house provides an opportunity to take a fresh point of view on what has become comfortable but perhaps not sustainable. But how in business, with all there is to do and get done, do we step back to move forward? Commitment is key. We must be committed and believe that a review of our business vitals will, in fact, provide us with potential new insights and perhaps even strategies. As leaders and entrepreneurs, this is an essential discipline likened to the need for an annual physical to keep us healthy. Just like our yearly physical, we can ďŹ nd numerous and legitimate excuses for not taking the time to go through the routine. Courageous commitment is based upon the knowledge that while things seem okay now, prevention is the best medicine – for our business and ourselves. So let’s get to it. What do we do to determine if our business systems are healthy and functioning at optimal levels? Step back. View the business through the eyes of others. The best place to start is with those at the center of our business – our customers.

story by JOE MECHLINSKI | illustration by JOHN HOLLAND

A

s you are most certainly aware, we live in a complex world in a perpetual state of change, one that is not satisfied with what we have today. Often, we experience this change in the form of upgrades, be it the next best cell phone or a novel modification in online delivery platforms. In fact, many instances of upgrading are nothing more than necessary change to meet competitive demand. As things become more complicated, competition becomes stiffer. This forces us to address several critical questions: How do we overcome change, get comfortable with moving faster every day, and satisfy the constant need to adapt? The way that I see it, there are three things you need to possess to deal with corporate change. You need to be dynamic. You need to be defiant. And you must absolutely be driven.

DYNAMIC Being dynamic is one of the keys to adopting a “change-focused” mentality. The approach to being dynamic is tri-faceted. First, you must be agile. Innovation is a continuum, not a fixed point. There is never a time when an innovator stops and says, “I’ve done it! I’ve reached the end of innovation.” We are always somewhere on the curve – we will forever be upgrading, whether to the next iteration or to a whole new solution. Second, you have to be flexible. Either learn to possess it, or surround yourself with it. The distinction here is learning that our destination is based on intention, not on a pre-determined outcome we hope to achieve. Yesterday’s solutions are not for today’s problems. Learn how to marry the problem, not the solution. If all you are focused on is the end result, you will never find your next big thing. Finally, be versatile. It’s been said before: We need to think outside of the box, and we need to surround ourselves with people who think that way, too. But, it has been said before for a reason. According to Jerry de Jaager and Jim Ericson’s book “See New Now”, “A study of the top fifty gamechanging innovations over a hundred-year period showed that nearly 80 percent of those innovations were sparked by someone whose primary expertise was outside the field in which the innovation breakthrough took place.” This means that versatile is not necessarily a room filled with ivy-league business grads who feel their idea is going to invent the next big thing. It means pulling people from all industries who can provide a new and fresh perspective. Question: What are you doing to help heighten your chances of finding innovation, knowing there’s only a 20 percent chance that it is coming from within your industry?

DEFIANT In my mind defiance does not mean a jaded, Breakfast Club-esque group of employees who inhibit progress and innovation. Rather, I am suggesting that a defiant mindset is one that is willing and able to always question the status quo. Ideally, you should come to the realization that the status quo no longer exists. You also need to be defiant to your beliefs. It is nothing but harmful to think that you know what your customers want and that your next

solution is the best and only one. When is the last time you had developed all the way down to a solution and realized that the answer you had was not the answer to the question your customers were asking? This is where I hang my hat on intention versus outcome. Learn how to enjoy the journey and intention, but be defiant to the path you’ve chosen knowing that it may have to change tomorrow. Let me share with you the example of Keurig. Once upon a time you had three options for coffee: brew it at home, prepare an instant coffee, buy it on the road, or get subpar coffee at the office. The prevalence of poor office coffee was such that it’s become a running cultural joke. The instant coffee option offered all the ease and timeliness of a cup of boiling water and a scoop of instant grounds, but none of the flavor of properlybrewed coffee. As one can imagine, this in and of itself was not a blockbuster, especially so in today’s world of widely-available gourmet coffee. Enter Keurig, who took the same concept of instant coffee but added a gourmet twist. What’s so radical here? The product is positioned differently, packaged differently, and was made to be the “go-to” coffee solution for discerning offices – and look how prevalent (and copied) the concept is now! Keurig took something that was subpar – the bland, burnt, and boring workplace coffee – and packaged it in a way that appealed to mass office environments for its convenience and because the alternative was just plain bad. In turn, they have been able to make a huge profit in an otherwise over-served market, and in doing so, have allowed you to instantly have whatever flavor of coffee or tea you desire. So what’s the lesson? NEVER be satisfied with where you are because when you are, someone else is working on upgrading your best solution. Be defiant to what you see as the norm, the constant, the “tried and true” way of thinking. We don’t know all the answers, but we may be just a moment away from the next great thing if we can elevate our thinking.

DRIVEN I believe that this is the most important of the 3 “Ds” I share with you today because it takes drive to maintain the excitement and focus you need to compete in today’s marketplace. I am not about to tell you anything you do not already know. I would challenge you, rather, that you are not doing it. And if you think you are, I challenge that you can do it better. You need to be driven to gain knowledge – you need to consume it, get out of your current circles or groups,

FALL 2013 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM

and find more people. It might be attending seminars, reading, or having your staff train each other. Help them become more dynamic and drive themselves to improve professionally and personally. You need to have the grit to do more. Although this is the most important “D”, it’s also the easiest to achieve. You have to be driven by your intentions while striving for continuous improvement. You might be asking, “How do I drive all of this in my life and my organization?” The answer is RESET, a topic we covered here in The Partner Channel Magazine® earlier this year. As a refresher, here are the steps to RESET: » Recognize: Awareness is everything. You must be willing to admit there’s room for improvement. » Expose: Be willing to get to the core issue. Have candid conversations. Shine a light on the elephant in the room. » Surrender: Be vulnerable. Accept, acknowledge, and apologize. Take full responsibility for the moment. » Empathize: Make sure the other people involved feel validated and valued. » Terms and Timeframe: Establish the new world order and a timeframe for achieving it. With proper application, RESET is the key to dealing with change and the turbulence it can cause.

PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER In the last few short paragraphs, I have outlined the 3 critical “Ds” of succeeding in the face of change. I know that if you find a way to attach yourself to your intentions, and not to your outcomes, and if you’re agile in attacking your goals, you will find the solutions for which you strive. My best advice for you is to employ RESET in your organization to really drive change. If you get comfortable with the lack of status quo and forge your own path, you will surmount any of the obstacles in your way. If you can employ RESET to your organization, and build a team that is dedicated to working hard, accomplishing the goal, and changing one another, your company will have the flexibility it needs to focus on upgrading. If any of this resonates with you, I recommend picking up a copy of my New York Times best-selling book, “Grow Regardless”, about how to survive in business regardless of climate, size, or industry. Even better, send me an email at Jmechlinski@entrequest.com, and let’s talk about your challenges!

ARE YOU

Keeping Up

WITH THE

Times?

...or Keeping Up With the Joneses? story by ADRIANNE MACHINA | illustration by SETH REXILIUS

E

very time we are presented with a marketing opportunity, we should be asking ourselves: Why are we doing this? Will we build awareness? Establish credibility? Get more leads? Increase sales? Or are we just copying what other people are doing, hoping that they know what they’re doing? A while back I was working with an EMC channel Partner who sold backup and recovery, server storage, and virtualization services. The CEO flew frequently, and for some reason really, REALLY wanted to advertise in the “Hemispheres” magazine from United Airlines. The costs of running such an ad were astronomical. And the chances of the CIO of an enterprise-level company reading the magazine, resonating with the ad, and taking action were miniscule. On the stack of marketing priorities, this one was clearly at the bottom for me. But this marketing tactic was high on the CEO’s list because he had a friend who was doing it, and the friend thought it was a good idea. In this case, the no-go decision was relatively easy because the costs involved were so high and the return so low (and our budget had already been committed to other activities!). But what about when the costs are lower — or even “FREE”? Let me give you an example. Recently I had a client who “needed help with social media.” What quickly became clear to me — and to them — was that their initial impetus for starting the social media project was just because other agencies like them were doing social media. So together we embarked on a six-month project to achieve business results through social media efforts. As a partially not-for-profit, partially state-funded agency, the first thing we had to do was fix the donation page on their website. The second thing we had was fix their messaging. The third thing we had to do was build a marketing funnel that would guide visitors into becoming a committed volunteer or donor. Then, FINALLY, once we had the strong foundation and strategy in place, we could begin implementing the social media strategy that would support the business goals. I’m sure that if you are the owner, managing partner, sales director, or marketing director of your firm, you get approached on a regular basis to make marketing decisions with tools or technologies that are not 100 percent familiar to you. You are regularly forced to decide if you are keeping up with the Joneses — or keeping up with the times.

THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM | FALL 2013

Here are five questions to help you decide whether to invest — or not: 1. What percentage of readers/visitors fit the profile of my ideal client or Partner? If your ideal client is only a small percentage of the overall audience, you are keeping up with the Joneses. Focused marketing yields better results and lower costs. 2. Am I creating an asset I can re-use in various ways? For example, if you decide to create a webinar that tackles a hot industry issue, you could make this webinar available on demand. Or if you write a submission for Microsoft awards, you can turn it into a case study. You can use these assets as an offer on your website and in advertising. Before you say YES to the initial investment, say YES to the entire strategy. 3. Is the cost negligible? Let’s say you decide to spend $100 to set up social media profiles on the most popular social media sites using a program like KnowEm (http://knowem.com). You’re not sure what you want to do with social media, but you know you want to secure your company name. As long as you’re not doing this too often, you can take small risks that don’t threaten or cost much. 4. Are you committed to follow through? Social media requires generating and sharing content on a regular basis. Search engine optimization also often takes months to see results. Give yourself at least six to 12 months commitment time to a new marketing endeavor before you decide whether it was worth it — or not. Put proper planning and procedures in place so you can maximize your chances of success. 5. Is NOT taking this action damaging your brand/business? A perfect example here is re-vamping your website. If your website is more than five years old and hasn’t been touched, you are not keeping up with the times. Look how quickly technology changes! If your website is bad or outdated, people will assume your company is outdated. To maximize your return on investment, every marketing effort should be designed to achieve one (or more) of the following goals. 24

Raise awareness with your target market Raise credibility or likeability with your target market Bring in quality leads Boost sales While my focus as an external marketing director is to run a lean, mean marketing machine, there’s nothing wrong with keeping up with the Joneses if you can afford it. Hey, if you want to advertise at the Super Bowl or buy all your sales guys orange Lamborghinis and put your logo on the side, that’s great! But if it’s not going to meet one of the five criteria above, it’s not marketing. It’s just spending.

THE IMPACT OF “ONE MICROSOFT” ON MICROSOFT DYNAMICS Steve (Ballmer) called Microsoft Dynamics Partners the company’s most loyal Partners worldwide. The acceleration that’s happening now is what customers need as business solutions are a way of transforming their business and will accelerate their growth in the forthcoming years. The most important thing is absolutely what Steve and the leadership team are doing – sharpening our strategy, unifying our services, and defining what that means in the new world. These changes will enable Microsoft to innovate with greater speed and efficiency so that customers get better, more connected experiences more rapidly. Our strategy is to create a family of devices and services for individuals and businesses that empowers people around the globe. It’s important to serve people at home, at work, and on the go in the activities they value the most because in the new world, it’s all about people. Microsoft Dynamics is seen as a strategic opportunity for the company – Steve has made that super clear – and it’s aligned to the overall strategy. Microsoft Dynamics has kept its reporting status into Steve because of the importance of the business. Aligning with Qi (Lu)’s organization, where they leverage Bing® as a platform, Office 365™, Skype, and Lync®, is a huge partnership from an engineering perspective and will bring an enormous sense of richness to our products. We will continue to see the same integration with the Cloud and Enterprise Group, the Applications group, the Marketing group, the Sales, Marketing and Services Group, and other cross-company teams.

UNITING CUSTOMERS AND TECHNOLOGY We’ve been talking about the “Dynamic Business” for a while. In his keynotes, Kirill (Tatarinov) talks about the importance of uniting users and technology with regards to productivity and line of business applications. It’s all about aligning the processes, remembering the anchor of people. When you look at an organization, people have devices, PCs, and tablets where they need to be productive (Office), collaborative (SharePoint®, Lync, Skype, and Yammer), social, and finally, the magic sauce of all that is what they do with business processes. We have a great opportunity here. We know our consumers better than anybody else. When Steve talks about a world of devices and services, a differentiator between us and competitors is that nobody else is going to

have this unique blend of a people-centric approach and consumer insight.

THE “ONE” IMPACT ON PARTNERS For us, the organizational structure is how we run our business internally. For Partners, the resulting benefits are huge. We’ve broken out this focus on business solutions and are asking Partners to grow their businesses in specific ways. One of the things we talk about with customers and Partners is what makes Microsoft Dynamics solutions unique. We have a great product, but we need to differentiate from competitors. I feel that differentiator is that we understand consumers better than anyone else. Whether Partners are selling into the mid-market or enterprise, the value proposition is the same; it’s just a different scale. ERP Partners might also look into how they can offer other solutions, whether that’s taking on Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Office 365. Then when you marry ERP or CRM with those additional productivity or business applications, Partners have a broader offering and can grow their business through the multiple products they support.

NEW PARTNERS, NEW OPPORTUNITIES We’re seeing more and more interest from global systems integrators (SIs), corporations like IBM, and Partners who are primarily focused on Microsoft Office and Office 365. When I think about transformation to the cloud-based solution, we need a different skillset because these Partners are no longer selling to IT teams, they’re selling to business divisions. As we become more successful with Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, businesses that have had a focus on Oracle and SAP are finding that they need to build a Microsoft practice. These Partners are seeing consumer demand worldwide for manufacturing, professional services, and retail-focused solutions, which can be met with Microsoft Dynamics AX. We have stepped up our engagements with Partners to bring greater focus to vertical solutions, and to build repeatable IP that can be scaled from small businesses to the enterprise. Microsoft Dynamics AX has gone through a transformation and has changed a lot in the last 18 to 20 months. The functionality is much richer, and while the early implementations took longer, we’re seeing more Partners able to do fast deployments with Microsoft Dynamics AX

2012 R2. We have the opportunity for existing Partners to see how they can scale their business. Additionally, Partners in the enterprise are up against huge direct sales teams with Oracle and SAP. To help them, we are training Partners to sell into the enterprise and providing them with the support they need to be successful. We remain fully committed to the SMB space. One key way we are following through on this commitment is by helping mid-sized businesses get to the cloud. And it’s through Partners that this will happen. Partners such as Abecon are invested in hosting Microsoft Dynamics solutions on Windows Azure, committed to providing a Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution on Azure. This opportunity will help our Partners grow their businesses. If you go to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, we have a solution that enables the customer to have access to their data through a really rich UI and have actual intelligence on any device at any time. This is enabling Partners to fully understand how Microsoft Dynamics CRM integrates with SharePoint and Yammer to create a comprehensive business solution. Microsoft Dynamics Partners have an increased opportunity to drive integration and sell the full spectrum of Microsoft offerings, including Microsoft Office 365 and other products. With the ability to build their own intellectual property, Partners can provide solutions that align with customers’ business needs. Anywhere you go, there is definitely a demand.

YOU NEED TO DIFFERENTIATE YOURSELF We’re making sure we focus. As you know from conversations with Doug (Kennedy), one of the messages was to focus and make sure you know where the unique value proposition is, whether that’s building specific IP or templates that allow you to differentiate your offering. If you look at our most successful Partners, all of them over the last two or three years have had a specific focus, whether that’s professional services, retail, or financial services. Partners need to have a way of differentiating themselves in the market. This is key to successfully engaging with customers. A great example of this is Cooper-Parry in the UK. They were a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partner and thought they should either take Microsoft Dynamics NAV up market or move to Microsoft Dynamics AX. They worked out where they won previously, and found it was in UKbased transportation businesses. They now sell in the cloud, sell Office 365, require less technical resources and more sales and marketing help,

28

FALL 2013 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM

have worked out a template for their solution, and their sales are up 50 percent over last year. You need to think about where you can differentiate yourself. One of the things I talked about at the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) was that in a perfect world with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, a Partner not only needs to know Microsoft Dynamics CRM, but also Yammer, SharePoint, and Office 365. I challenged Partners to focus on how they would expand the portfolio of what they have. Would they acquire a company? Would they hire and train? Would they make partnerships? For a long time we’ve talked about partnering. What the customer needs and where this industry is going is through more partnering. By understanding what customers need to be successful, by continuing to focus on enterprise verticals, and by investing in our Partners and building our Partner ecosystem, we can take advantage of the great market opportunities. It’s better to partner and win together than to go alone and lose the deal.

PULSE ON PARTNERS I think Partners are doing great. Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partners love what they’re doing and are pushing more to the cloud. They feel great about the products and about having a balance between their installed base and winning new customers. Microsoft Dynamics AX Partners are super excited about the opportunity. There’s lots of interest in the big deals around the world, and they’re thinking about how they accelerate their business. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Partners see Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and are loving the new UI and what we’re doing around social to ensure that it’s woven into the solution. They’re supporting multiple devices…but prioritizing Windows phone first. We’re super excited as a company that the product will allow us to go after a sweet spot of business transformation. We’re really making sure the engagement is right, nurturing an existing customer and making it personal to bring it all together. Over the last five years, there has been time spent wondering if Microsoft was conflicted with the addition of business applications. Now it’s been cemented that they’re absolutely critical to the business, and Microsoft is investing in our engineering, sales, and marketing. To those loyal Partners, you’re part of this dynamic business. Whatever you sell, you’re the linchpin in making us successful. All of you are business owners, and to hear that somebody is betting on you to win is super powerful.

I

’m not going to lie. The thought of learning something new sometimes wears me out. Like you, my To Do list is Too Long. There doesn’t seem to be room for things like webinars on lean process improvement or researching new team-building approaches. My overwhelmed internal voice sometimes whines, “don’t I know enough already?” The truth is, nobody knows enough. That’s perhaps the only thing we all know for sure. Whenever we start a new project, we need to learn a bunch of new things. When we get promoted or add a new team member, we need to learn new skills and approaches. When projects go off the rails, we need to learn why and how to get them back on track. But instead of embracing this need to learn, we drag our feet and think we can tackle challenges without adding new knowledge to our old brains. We convince ourselves we can power through it because taking the time to prepare by acquiring new knowledge seems tedious and even unproductive. I’ve fallen into this trap many times. Each time, after finally clawing my way out of whatever deep rut I was in (because I was under the delusion that I already possessed the know-how to get out easily), I swore I’d be better prepared next time. And then I encountered my overwhelming To Do list, and the cycle started again. It seems some kind of trickery is in order. We need to wrap our pills in peanut butter, so to speak. But like our wisened pets, we won’t easily be fooled. How then do we make all our required learning fun and not wearisome? While attempting to solve this puzzle, I created yet another

overwhelming list. So I took a break by planning an upcoming trip. Soon I was happily researching scenic drives and assembling perfect wardrobes for adventures rich in local flair and flavor. Nearly two hours of knowledge acquisition went by, and not once did I balk. While still feeling the buzz of trip preparation, I took another look at my original problem. What if we turn our learning tasks into mini vacations? After all, aren’t learning experiences like journeys through unchartered territories in our brains? Instead of getting overwhelmed at the thought of keeping up with constant change or – worse yet – pretending we can just wing it, we need to become constant travelers. Most of us love the thought of traveling, but we wouldn’t dream of taking a trip without first being prepared. We don’t like the extreme duress of being overseas when we realize our credit cards are about to expire. It’s simply not practical or safe to foray into an unknown city’s underground rail system without first acquiring a basic knowledge of the routes and interchanges. We’d rather not have to be air-lifted off the mountain trail because ill-fitting hiking boots rendered our feet un-walkable. And although we love watching programs about rugged adventure travel, we aren’t naïve enough to be unaware of the months of preparation, location crews, and safety precautions that precede and surround the supposed seat-of-the-pants cast members.

Here’s how your journey as a constant traveler begins. For every “trip” you take during your week, like pitching to a prospective client in a market new to you, welcoming a new team member to the fold, or incorporating a new tool to your project management process, you simply make time to pack your bag and chart your course. Ask yourself these questions: » Where am I going? » What will I need along the way? » What new things will I potentially encounter? » Do I have the right currency? » Do I know enough of the language to be sure I’m understood? » Do I know the history and culture of the place so I find the hidden treasures and avoid social blunders? » Do I know the dangerous places I should avoid? » Who is coming with me and have they packed their bags? Thinking of every new task, tool, gadget, conflict, or concept you need to learn about as an adventure-filled trip can help you swap anxiety for anticipation. It may even encourage you to share your travelogues (but not with boring slide shows, please!). If learning really is an adventure, won’t you want to send postcards along the way and encourage friends and colleagues to come along? I can already see the “Lean is for Lovers” bumper stickers I’ll pick up on my first trip!

MR. SPOCK

story by CHARLES H. GREEN | illustration by DAVE SWANG

S

tar Trek’s iconic Mr. Spock was half-Vulcan, half-human. It’s the former we first notice in Spock – Vulcans are governed entirely by logic and rationality, unencumbered by emotions. But it’s the latter that takes Spock from caricature to character. Spock mirrors our own schizophrenic, rational/emotional natures. He is the sock puppet for humanity, allowing us to look at ourselves afresh. Of course, you wouldn’t know that from looking at economists, strategy consultants – and much of the B2B sales literature. They suggest that people, particularly smart business people, are mostly rational decision makers, persuaded by well-established rules of scientific evidence, logic, and the inexorable rules of mathematics. In other words – they treat buyers like Vulcans. But as with Spock, the truth for buyers is far more complex.

MY BRAIN’S BIGGER THAN YOURS In recent weeks I’ve spent a lot of time with B2B sales organizations. I’m reminded of how much business people have bought – hook, line, and sinker – the idea that customers buy through rational decision-making. The economists’ models are live and well in sales training programs. Feeding the ratiocinating Vulcan side of buyers is necessary. But it is almost never sufficient. The true role of the intellect in B2B buying is as follows: Buyers scan options rationally, but they make their final selection with their emotions – then rationalize that decision with their brains. The cognitive role in buying is vastly overstated. Brains don’t rule. Spock is not 100 percent Vulcan. Neither is your customer.

YOUR CUSTOMER IS NOT A VULCAN Question: What do the following things have in common? Value propositions; challenger selling; strategic fit; problem definition; pricing; negotiation; objection-handling. Answer: In B2B sales, they usually center around analytical economic value, assuming that the rational resolution of each issue is the key to helping a buyer achieve a decision. Look for these buzz-phrases: clients buy results, you’ve gotta show the bottom line, the key is to demonstrate value, and so forth. Nothing wrong with that list; but what’s missing are the things that actually trigger a buyer’s decision – not just justify it. Those include, for starters: » Confidence that the seller can deliver what (s)he promises, and the resulting ability to sleep through the night » Integrity » Character » Commitment to principle » A long-term relationship focus » A sense that the seller has the buyer’s interest at heart » The seller’s ability and willingness to defer gratification » Vulnerability of the seller » A set of values beyond economic value » A sense that the seller is a safe haven for conversation. In short – trust in the seller. Your customer is not a Vulcan. Your customer is Spock – partly human. 34

THE COGNITIVE/EMOTIVE DISCONNECT I spend my time with smart, complex-business, B2B professionals. Every single one of them will acknowledge the importance of the above list. Yet every one of them lives in an organization where 90 percent of attention is focused on the buyer’s Vulcan side, doing slide decks, spreadsheets, valuations, and scenarios. In the real B2B world, all those rational items are the (necessary) justifications for customers looking to rationalize their (emotional) decisions. But they aren’t the decision-driver. Buyers often (rationally) screen sellers. But they quickly form favorites, unconsciously, and usually before the sellers have even had a chance to address the issue. All the Vulcan-targeted approaches are aimed either at forming a buyer’s opinion (too late, already done), or changing a buyer’s preformed opinion (already set in concrete). It rarely works.

Proof? Ask yourself how many times your customers failed to see the brilliant case you had made, because somehow, they were biased against you. You tried to sell to the Vulcan in your Spockcustomer; but that human side kept rearing its ugly head.

HOW COMPLEX B2B BUYING REALLY WORKS Very few buyers will tell their boss, “Gee, I guess I bought from those guys because, you know, I really trust them.” That’s career suicide. Buyers need the air-cover (and, to be fair, the reality check) of a rationality-based argument. It’s our job as sellers to deliver that rationale to them, bullet-proof and logictight as it can be. Because in business, we all need to pretend we’re Vulcans. But deep down, we all know what’s really going on. People buy with the heart, and rationalize with the mind. Brains are a necessary but not a sufficient condition. Being right, by itself, is a vastly overrated proposition. Being right too soon just ticks people off. All else equal, a trust-based sell will always beat a rationality-based sell. The truth is, our emotional instincts are extremely powerful (not to mention frequently accurate). We make our decisions first based on those emotions, and then we struggle to justify

them according to the rules of the game. Unlike Spock, we lead with the human, and bring in our Vulcan sides as a check. Many, many of my clients say: “That may be true for lots of people, but not for my [boss] [client] [customer]. They’re completely Vulcan, data-based, just-give-me-the-facts people. You’ve got to treat them like Vulcans, because they demand it.”  But the fact that they demand to be treated like Vulcans is 95 percent about ego – and that’s their human side.

“It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.” - Mr. Spock in “Errand of Mercy” Ironically, all this is especially  true for those who believe the world works on brains. They are prone to buy even more emotionally, because their self-worth is tied up in thinking that emotions don’t matter – which renders them oblivious to their own human decision-making process. Even if your customer thinks they’re a Vulcan – treat them like Spock. Address the human side – then give them Vulcanfood to justify their feelings.

Rules Marketing story by JENNIFER CULBERTSON | illustration by MATT MASTRUD

arketers face massive accelerated change, and what was once common practice even just five years ago might not be the right approach or direction today. While many of the fundamentals of marketing still remain the same, let’s explore some of the new rules and approaches so you can play the game well and win.

MARKETING IS A NUMBERS GAME

Once upon a time, marketing was focused more on creativity and less on analytics. “Marketing is an art”, they would say. “Let’s leave the statistics to the finance team”. Marketers then may have managed to escape the facts and figures, but today it is no longer possible. Now, more than ever, marketing is about numbers. While the change to a more analytical role may seem daunting to many marketers, there are some simple ways you can use data to help in your efforts: » Put the right analytics in place with marketing automation, web, and CRM » Establish benchmarks » Set metrics-driven goals » Have regular progress reports » Back up marketing decisions with data » Use data to drive content creation » Use A/B testing to see what messages are working and what are not » Share your data-driven research across your organization to show results and ROI The meticulous collection and analysis of data can transform marketing by improving your ability to better target messages and offers, aligning overall activities with specific sales goals, and giving you deep insight into the effectiveness of campaigns. The greater the knowledge you have about what’s working and what’s not working will ultimately help you work smarter and achieve greater marketing ROI.

YOU DON’T CONTROL YOUR BRAND – YOUR CUSTOMER DOES There’s no doubt about it: marketers like to lead the charge. That’s part of our job, after all. We’re the ones who steer our brands to market, blazing trails as needed, crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s to make sure that the message stays on-point. But, how can we maintain this type of control in today’s online world? The answer is simple: we can’t. That means in no way should we lie down and give up. But the challenge today is to embrace new channels, value the additional exposure, and harness social media’s enormous potential. Here are some ways you can let your customers take part in forming your image: » Encourage Word-of-Mouth – If your customers feel as if they have a stake in your company, then they will be your ambassadors to their social circle on your behalf. Incent them to spread the word about the great experience they have had with your company with promotions such as “Like our page and receive a code for 20 percent off your next training.” » Reward the Faithful – If there’s one thing social media has taught us, it’s that people like attention. Highlight long-term customers in blog posts or status updates (and of course be sure to mention how you’ve helped changed their lives over the years). And always, stay on top of messages, comments, and posts; timely replies cost nothing more than your time, and they are the best way to generate goodwill. » Tap Their Creativity – The sky is the limit if you offer the right incentive to your audience; you could host anything from video contests to interactive webinars or tip-sharing chats. Brainstorm what makes your core audience tick.

MARKETERS ARE WORKING SMARTER Successful marketers manage their work, are more efficient, and tap into technology to help automate tasks.

They don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time they launch a new campaign; rather, they have a tried-and-true system in place to guide prospects down the right path in harmony with the sales team. Here are ways that you can work smarter to get the most value from your time: » Automate Workflows – There is an abundance of apps and websites that can save you time as you monitor your social media activity. Remember how you need to reply to messages quickly? Well, if you set up a dashboard of your social media sites, you have one place to go to in order to stay on top of everything, instead of having to log into every site individually regardless of whether there was activity there or not. » Data Collection Standards – Some data you want, and some you don’t. And all of it takes time (and money) for your staff to collect, mine, or analyze. Be smart about what data is useful and what isn’t. If you are currently collecting data in a CRM system about your campaigns and responses, make sure you are using that data to understand what’s working and what’s not. » Seamless Collaboration with Your Sales Team – Successful marketing teams are intricately connected to their sales staff. For your prospects, the transition or hand-off from the marketing team to the sales team should be seamless. You shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel every time you hand a lead over to the sales team. » Target Audiences Throughout Sales Cycle – Marketing doesn’t end when the sales team takes over. This is why a conversion plan is so important: marketing and sales need to collaborate and complement each other as you turn a prospect into a customer. In order to enhance the sales team’s message, you’ll want marketing materials available to prospects at the optimal moment.

FOCUS ON LEADS COMING TO YOU As we all know, not all leads are created equal. There is a vast difference between a lead that has proactively

contacted your company for more information after searching the web for your services versus one that simply threw his/her business card into the “fish bowl” at a trade show. Today’s marketers need to focus on inbound marketing tactics or the process of “getting found” by prospects, leads, and even current customers. Leads generated from inbound marketing are often better qualified than those generated by traditional, outbound marketing tactics. But how do you get a prospect to self-identify and ask for more information? Online, the best way to do that is through thoughtful, meaningful content that includes a relevant, compelling call to action. Your best bet is to build an inbound marketing strategy around exceptional content including your website, blog, and social media activities. Content and inbound are the logical extension of social marketing. Always aim to build content that your audience is truly interested in.

JUMPING INTO THE GAME When it comes to marketing today, remember that many of the old-style marketing fundamentals remain the same, such as creating awareness, driving new leads; and building a consistent brand; they are simply delivered in a new way. Much of what is transforming marketing actually opens up new doors of opportunity, and being able to stay true to the basics while embracing new approaches will help you play better and win the game.

I A F M L Y “DYNAMIC” FAMILIES IN THE PARTNER COMMUNITY

story by JENNY DAVIS

This is part two of this story; part one appeared in our Summer 2013 issue. How did the story idea come about? Well, we were intrigued by family members who work together. We interviewed two parent/child duos, two sets of siblings, and four married couples – dynamic families in the world of Microsoft Dynamics. Without further ado, we bring you part 2.

MARK ROCKWELL AND KELLI SEXTON OF ROCKTON SOFTWARE When Mark first ventured into independent consulting in 1999, Kelli was a full-time mom, homeschooling their children. While she wasn’t in the business officially, Kelli served as a valuable sounding board and advisor to Mark, as well as the second half of the company name. In 2004, Mark launched Rockton’s first product, and Kelli moved into an official role, helping first with tradeshow appearances then moving into human resources roles as the company expanded. In 2008, Kelli became CEO of Rockton Software with Mark serving as president. The organization now employs 18 individuals plus contractors. When asked how they handle normal, everyday life with both parties heavily vested into a business, Mark quickly shares: “We don’t have a normal life.” “We never completely disengage,” Kelli further explains. “The benefit of that is we can just be hanging out and an idea will come to us that’s perfect for work. That element can be very exciting because there’s no nine to five ‘jobness’ of it, but other times we need to be more deliberate, focusing on business time and family time.” That sort of discipline doesn’t always come naturally or at the same time for both parties. “Sometimes it can be frustrating, if she’s only talking work or the flip side and her eyes are glazing over,” says Mark. “In our relationship we wear different hats and just need to remember to swap hats. Sometimes I’ll have to stop and ask which hat I’m wearing right now. Being a man, I just want to jump in and solve the problem and her being a woman she just wants to vent, so sometimes I get it wrong.”

A blessing in disguise has been figuring out how to handle conflict with each other when it arises in the office. “A lot comes across in tone and what’s heard can be completely different than what’s implied,” says Kelli. “Our personal growth has been enriched because of our business needs of being clear with each other.” That clarity and commitment to working together well as a family have rubbed off on the office as Rockton employs two other married couples as well as Mark and Kelli’s niece. “We had conversations and an understanding prior to the hire that if it doesn’t work, we’ll go back to being related and not in an employer/employee relationship,” says Kelli. Setting those boundaries was important, but the talent of the family members makes the transition easier. Despite the occasional tone issue or hat malfunction, the benefits have been deep-seated for this duo. “Kelli is my best friend, and we can do anything together,” says Mark. “Even though we have bumps and struggles like any relationship, it gets easier the more you know somebody.” “We’ve also learned that it’s important to honor each other’s work styles,” says Kelli. “You can’t judge the other one because they do things differently than you.” Although their hours may be long and the ideas come on their own schedule, Mark and Kelli have learned that their best bet towards focused family time is to put it on the calendar. “There needs to be scheduled down time. It’s important to plan it and then honor it,” says Mark. “I used to regret going on vacation because it was a pain. I’ve now learned that vacations rock. Let’s unplug and have fun.”

BOBBY AND ROBERT JACKSON OF INTEGRITY DATA Father and son, Bobby and Robert, have a combined 19 years of service at Integrity Data. “I was the first full-time employee when Patrick moved back to Illinois,” says Bobby, referring to CEO, Patrick Doolin, whom Bobby knew in addition to Patrick’s parents. “When Robert came onboard, even though I’d been here seven years, I had very little to do with it. Our development manager has known our family since our boys were young, and one day he came to me and asked what Robert was doing. He had a testing position and was impressed with Robert’s character and was interested in talking with him.” Robert was coming off one year of recovery after an injury that occurred during his tour in Afghanistan. (As an aside, all four of Bobby’s sons have served overseas in the United States military, with three sons in Afghanistan and one in Iraq. Bobby says his job was easy as all he had to do was worry. I told him to not discount that job.) “I was encouraged about him coming to work with us, but I didn’t put his name in the hat,” Bobby further shares. Six years later, Bobby and Robert are working together but not “too” together as they work in the same department but rarely on the same projects. “We have a little distance, which is good even though we get along well,” says Bobby. “It gives me the opportunity to see him develop as an adult in a professional environment as well as hear about my grandkids more often, but be apart enough that he doesn’t feel shadowed by his old man.” “We’ll ask each other questions since we have different experiences,” says Robert. “It’s nice to have somebody to talk to who understands what’s going on. I can talk to my wife all day long, but she’s not technical and just nods her head. It’s been nice to have Dad outside of work.” Those work conversations come pretty easily, and thus far haven’t dominated Bobby and Robert’s time outside of the office. “We have a really good environment here, and IT can be challenging, but I try to look at things objectively,” says Bobby. “When we’re around the dinner table, there are four sons, daughters-in-law, and grandkids, so we keep pretty busy talking about family things.” Looking at things objectively also helps when the two are working on a project together. “I’ve learned that I can’t take things personally,” says Robert. “That’s generally the case, but if Dad is my supervisor and doesn’t like something I’m doing, I can’t take offense to that.”

“Also, he’s my dad whether it’s eight-to-five or five-to-eight,” continues Robert. “When I first started working here I would title him as ‘Bobby’ in the greeting. Now it’s ‘Dad’, unless it’s going to a customer.” “Yeah, he made that mistake of calling me ‘Bobby’ a few times, but I straightened that out,” jokes Bobby. Kidding aside, the importance of objectivity also lies in Bobby’s advice for families who consider working together. “As a father, it’s not the tension between you and your kid, but if somebody isn’t treating them the way they should be, your first instinct is to get defensive. In the professional arena, that can be bad,” says Bobby. “I expect a lot out of my kids, and I believe in them more than anyone else. I find myself being too hard on him and have to remember that boundary. I think we’ve done a good job so far, but I can see how working together could be tough. I advise you to be very cautious.”

ORA GOLDMAN AND CRAIG KLAPMAN OF MEKORMA Ora and Craig have worked together since December 1998, officially longer than they lived together under the same roof as children. When asked what keeps them together after all these years, their bond as siblings is strong yet tender. “I like the way Craig thinks. There’s a certain off-the-wall quality that Craig has that I can keep up with,” says Ora. “The other piece of it is the loyalty and love between us because we care about each other, and it’s gratifying to bring that out into this arena.” Craig agrees, as well as shares that even though he didn’t have experience in the computer industry, Ora needed help, and he needed a job. “I had a longing for home and family, and felt like I was adding value working with my sister,” says Craig. “I also felt as though I would let her down if I left. We have had a lot of families work here together, and I see it as a core part of our culture.” Their challenges with working together revolve around figuring out a balance between work and life. “It’s too easy to discuss work when we’re at family things, and I think it might slightly compromise our personal relationship,” says Craig. “I see Ora’s kids roll their eyes when we’re together, talking about work again.” “Another thing has to do with openness,” continues Craig. “The role I had compared to the influence I had were not a complete match. When that came out into the open, I officially became part of the management team.” “Right! I resonated with some of Craig’s ideas that seemed wild to team members who were more conventional. Trying those out to become what we are has just been awesome,” says Ora. “I recently received a comment that somebody on the team enjoyed an interaction they heard us have at a company meeting. I think one of us was rambling on, and the other told them to can it. We’re not rude to each other very often, but it’s something we could do because of our relationship.” “By working with family, some may think that person has a job because they’re your relative,” continues Ora. “Honestly, I don’t think I give him extra leeway because he’s my brother. At Mekorma, everyone on the team is like my family.” Mekorma is a virtual organization, with each member of its team living in a different location; Ora lives in Boulder, Colorado, and Craig in the redwood forest of northern California. Even though they’re a phone call away, Ora and Craig both wish they could see each other in person more often and work side by side as people have done all throughout history. “I know people who say they can’t be friends with somebody they supervise. That’s not true. If you think you can do it, you probably can. If you think you can’t, you probably can’t,” says Craig. “Look at yourself and your relationships. Not every family has the same dynamics, and if it isn’t in the cards for your family, that’s okay.” “I love having family work together,” continues Craig. “I love the synergy and when somebody recommends that their relatives come work with them. ‘All the eggs in one basket’ is a true statement of trust. I feel honored…and responsible.”

GARY AND LINDA ARTIS OF INTERDYN ARTIS Gary and Linda take partnering very seriously. The couple met at Stampede, the famed Great Plains Partner Conference, in 1990 under the event theme of “Partnering for the Next Decade”. “We’ve been partnering for more than two decades at this point,” says Gary. What started as an introduction from a Great Plains account rep led to a business relationship where Linda brought Gary clients and he bought her lunch. Over the next couple of years the relationship grew, Linda started working for Gary, and they became engaged. “We attended the Business Building Conference in January and told our rep our news, and he said we should get married in Fargo,” says Gary. “We talked about it on the way home. Great Plains was behind it; they were piano players, videographer, and planner of it all. Doug (Burgum) put us up at the front table at one of the dinners, had a cake, our account rep made a speech, and Wayne Harding, our videographer, panned the crowd saying that ‘550 of our closest friends’ were here at the wedding. We also ended up getting a spot in a tech publication with the title of ‘Taking Partnering a Little too Far and Getting Married in Fargo’.” It felt natural for the pair to be married and work together from the start. “We have very different jobs as I’m on the sales side and he does more owner stuff,” says Linda. “Before we had kids, we talked about work at home a lot more often. It wasn’t so much the negative as it was about strategy. Work really was our lives for the first 10 years, but it was okay as we shared a common goal.” A common goal and good, honest communication are keys to working with a loved one. “We have a few other family relationships in our organization, one of which is a consultant who has been with us for more than 15 years,” says Gary. “She introduced us to her brother-in-law, a programmer and they’ve been fantastic together. This last year the wife of the programmer came to work with us and that’s working out as well.” “I think it’s important to do different things in the office,” says Linda. “If you’re working on the same things it would be very hard. There was one point when I reported to Gary, and that just didn’t work well at all. We did that for about a year, and it was just a disaster. Now I report to somebody else in the company.” With those challenges addressed and Linda with a new manager, the pair has experienced numerous rewards, from being able to travel to conferences together to having a greater understanding of each other and their goals in life. “Another thing that has come about is that because our income is derived from the same source, there is more understanding of good times and bad times,” says Gary. “Because of that, there may be less strife in our relationship than between people who don’t have that common understanding.” “The only thing that might be a downside is that it’s harder to hide Christmas gifts when they come to the office,” jokes Gary. “It’s been a great experience, and I couldn’t ask for anything better,” says Linda. “Great Plains has been so instrumental in our lives, and I’m sure we didn’t know how good we had it back then. We had a fabulous time and not many people can say that. We were very, very lucky to have such a great company to work with.”

And with that, our “dynamic” families article concludes. While working with family most certainly can be challenging at times, we leave you with Linda’s thoughts on the subject: “It’s been a great experience, and I couldn’t ask for anything better.”

t’s not about workspaces, hierarchy, benefits, pay, vacation time, promotions, or even titles anymore. The new workplace is different; however, different doesn’t mean deficient. Think about it – the world of work has access to more information 24/7, more diversity, more technology, more college graduates, more flexibility to work virtually, more generations in the workplaces, global span and local depth, broad and viral communication channels like social media, telepresence workers, green and sustainability expectations (it’s no longer an option in most cases), highly educated customers, shifting healthcare needs and provisions, different buying habits and patterns (for heaven’s sake, more cars are bought on carsoup.com than at the local car dealer), ondemand TV (commercials are a thing of yesterday), on-demand information (who reads the paper…when you want information, you get it, you don’t let someone else determine it), and employees that are just not like they used to be or maybe just have a different way of thinking about their role in your company. With all that opportunity, how does a company successfully drive company performance, exceed customer expectations, and create a satisfied and engaged workforce? As Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, said “Any company trying to compete must figure out a way to engage the mind of every employee.” Building the Workplace 2.0 by engaging the mind is a start. The next step is engaging the employee’s soul. With that being said, Gallup Poll recently did a survey on employee engagement and found that a startling 76 percent of the professional workforce is unengaged or actively disengaged (meaning they would take another job as soon as they could)! But why are so many professionals unengaged? Is it money, benefits, workplace conditions, competing demands? Global research by Towers Watson found that the single highest drive of employee engagement is whether managers are genuinely interested in their employees’ well-being. The research also found that less than 40 percent of employees felt that support. In addition to employee well-being, we can’t ignore how the world of work has changed. It’s confusing. We live in a virtual world, where 70 percent of all work is done from a mobile device. And yet, the CEO of Yahoo banned virtual work teams and mandated that all workers come to a brick-and-mortar office. We have more talent in the workforce than ever – five generations; however, most would consider that a huge obstacle. We have a community of 1 billion Facebook users, yet most employers are banning Facebook at the workplace even though research indicates that companies that allow employees to seamlessly integrate their home and work life have more productive employees.

Daniel Pink, famous author of “The Whole New Mind”, said we no longer live in the information age; we live in “the conceptual age”. I would argue that we have surpassed that, and we live in an integrated age. We have integrated software, integrated cross-functional teams, integrated vendor and company models, integrated personal and professional lives, etc. So, with the engagement issue, the confusing workplace models, and a new era of integration, how does a company create a competitive advantage by upgrading to Workplace 2.0?! Although it may not be a magical solution or an easy solution, it’s a place to start. In a recent survey of college students (conducted by Robertson Company), students (your future employees) indicated they wanted three things: » Trust and Respect » Teamwork and Collaboration » Flexible Work Arrangements In my estimation, to accomplish trust, respect, teamwork, collaboration, and flexible work arrangements, the place to start is: » Engaging their Leadership » Bridging the Gap » Innovation If you engage their leadership, they are the latchkey to the culture and the motivation of the workforce. How do you engage your leader? Research would indicate that leadership engagement is a result of involving all levels of leaders in decisions. Do you include your front-line managers in discussions about customers and the strategic direction of the company, or do you just lock your most removed leaders like CEOs and VPs into a corporate meeting room and create reams of PowerPoint presentations indicating what you “should” do? Do you train your managers? It is always amazing that we will send technical people to weeks and weeks of training on a product for thousands and thousands of dollars, but when we promote them to manager, we just assume they know what they are doing. Your best investment will be working with your front-line managers and making the best leaders in your companies. As research indicates, the relationship with your direct manager determines whether you are engaged and/or have retention issues. All levels of management should be trained; however, the ROI is with your front-line managers – the keepers of your customers and your employees. Often executives will pay top dollar for an executive coach,

which is excellent because their impact is so broad; however, why not spend top dollar on getting your top front-line managers a coach. Send them to the best training! Give them the skills to do their job! The second way you create an engaged workforce is to bridge the gap. Bridge the gap between generations, bridge the gap between personal and professional work life balance, and bridge the gap between technologies. If we can tap the five generations in the workplace and create a respectful, non-blaming, nonstereotyping environment, we may have the most brilliant minds engaged at all levels, where experience meets novice in ways that propel competitive marketplace advantages. Microsoft is talking about “seamless”, and although that word is overused and often said with a sarcastic slant, it is no longer about work-life balance or work-life blur. It is about having a company that has a seamless experience between both because they are almost impossible to separate and almost impossible to manage separately. San Francisco has put Wi-Fi in its parks. More work is done on a cell phone than any other device. Whether we like it or not, it is reality. How can companies create a culture that integrates both without employees feeling like they are “tied” to the company 24/7 or “banned” from using Facebook as a communication tool while working? They can’t. Lastly, the workplace is indeed different, which calls for unprecedented workplace models. A group of manufacturers and transportation professionals (truck drivers) that I recently spoke to were encouraged to entertain 9-month contracts with their employees in order to reduce burnout and become more attractive than white collar professional jobs. Nine months of work, 12 months compensated. Imagine if teachers were not the only ones who got summers “off ”. Also, many teacher contracts have been re-written to indicate that the teachers are contracted for nine months, but not necessarily from August to May. It might be January to August depending on summer school demands. In Fargo, ND, a small business owner recently gave his employees 500 hours to do with whatever they want, in addition to their 48

vacation and PTO. Wow! If research indicates that engagement is directly tied to how much you care about the well-being of your employees, maybe the most revolutionary idea is to “love your employees as much as your profit.” Imagine a workforce that is a competitive edge because they are all “in it to win it” as much as the CEO because they feel they are as important and as vital to the business. In the end, people rarely remember what you did, but they always remember how you made them feel. Novel? Maybe or maybe not. Competitive? Definitely.

story by BARBARA PFEIFFER AND CHERYL STREGE illustration by DAVE SWANG

I

f you’ve been involved in B2B (and particularly high tech) marketing for at least five years, you’ve had a front row seat to the most significant change in how business and IT professionals research and shop for technology solutions. Call it digital, inbound, content, push versus pull marketing – there is a whole new landscape of strategies and tactics that you should be deploying today to generate a steady stream of leads and maintain a robust pipeline. If you are a volume reseller or are selling SaaS solutions, these strategies and tactics are MUST-haves. Let’s focus on three powerful statistics relevant to marketing today and the skills needed to take advantage of them.

70 PERCENT OF THE LINKS THAT USERS CLICK ON AS A RESULT OF SEARCH ARE ORGANIC LINKS, AND 75 PERCENT OF USERS NEVER SCROLL PAST THE FIRST PAGE OF SEARCH RESULTS. (HUBSPOT) WAIT – don’t skip this because you have an outside firm managing your search engine optimization (SEO). While we highly recommend every company hire a professional firm for this complicated strategy, getting traffic to your site requires tight integration between your external experts and you. With the rollout of Google Penguin – in the simplest terms – keywords, tags, and links have been given less weight (and sometimes negative weight) in favor of authenticity and authorship. SEO will only succeed to the extent that you are able to continue to add original content and show true engagement in social networks. The skill upgrade here? You don’t need to be an SEO professional, but you DO need to know the key drivers for organic search so that you are able to support your SEO firm’s efforts. Schedule regular sessions with your SEO company to identify what else you can do to support them, and utilize sites like Moz (formerly SEOMoz) and Search Engine Land to stay updated (independently) as a cross-check for the advice you’re getting.

BY 2020, CUSTOMERS WILL MANAGE 85 PERCENT OF THEIR RELATIONSHIPS WITHOUT TALKING TO A HUMAN. (GARTNER RESEARCH VIA HUBSPOT) You’re probably seeing a pattern here. Across the board, the future of marketing is in delivering powerful, valuable content that demonstrates your credibility and expertise to an audience that wants to “self-serve”. So what skill set do you need? Contrary to what many think, you don’t need to be a writer. Rather, marketers today need to be curators, publishers, and editors. As a curator, you need to be able to research and follow information that has value for your target audience. As a publisher, you need a solid understanding of what is valuable and interesting to your reader (your prospects), and then you need to develop a plan to build and buy that content. You’ll need to manage multiple sources including in-house blogs and more. You’ll also need to be a good editor-in-chief by blocking any publication of pieces that don’t meet your prospects’ needs (you know the ones – the articles your tech guy created that only he cares about).

Is inbound a big deal? Inbound marketing has a 62 percent less cost per lead than outbound. If there’s one thread that’s consistent throughout this article, it’s that inbound marketing is here to stay, and inbound is not just one thing but rather MANY tactics and strategies that change OFTEN. With this in mind, skills upgrades are not a “one and done” training. We gave you some immediate things to do, but how do you make sure you are continually on top of the latest trends? All marketers today should have a personal training plan and a commitment to keeping their skills fresh. Some ideas to get you started: » Identify two to three online communities that you can join/subscribe to and visit often for new information. Our favorites: The Content Marketing Institute, B2B Online, and B2B Social Examiner. » Set a goal for attending at least one webinar per month. Tip: Talk to your marketing automation software vendor about their educational webcasts. Learn more about how to maximize this critical tool. For other options, search “free marketing webinars” for a robust list from vendors such as Hubspot. » Attend at least one in-depth training or conference. Our favorite? The Partner Connections Event, of course! » Utilize resources available from Microsoft and The Partner Marketing Group, including: » Deadly Marketing Errors: No Time, No Money, No Point in Nurture: https://training.partner.microsoft.com/learning/app/management/ registrationex/LMS_Registration.aspx?UserMode=0&Mode=0&Acti vityID=844478 » “Feeding the Content Beast” Webcast: www. thepartnermarketinggroup.com/greenhouse-marketing-ideas/digdeeper/ » Digital Marketing Playbook: https://mbs.microsoft.com/ partnersource/marketing/campaigns/existingcustomer/MSDY_ SMBplaybook.htm » “The Year of Content – 52 Inspiring Ideas to Fuel Your High Tech Content Marketing Campaigns”: www.thepartnermarketinggroup. com/greenhouse-marketing-ideas/dig-deeper/

COMPANIES THAT EXCEL AT LEAD NURTURING GENERATE 50 PERCENT MORE SALES-READY LEADS AT A 33 PERCENT LOWER COST. (FORRESTER) AND 79 PERCENT OF MARKETING LEADS NEVER CONVERT INTO SALES. LACK OF LEAD NURTURING IS THE COMMON CAUSE OF THIS POOR PERFORMANCE. (MARKETINGSHERPA) Two stats with one clear message: the ability to nurture a prospect over an extended period of time is a vital part of any B2B marketing strategy. What does this mean for you and your skills? First, marketers need to take a leadership role in bringing together marketing and sales to create an agreement on things such as lead scoring, the definition of a sales-ready lead, the process for leads to be passed on to sales, and (more importantly) the process for prospects not ready to buy who are passed back to marketing. Beyond building a sales/marketing integration strategy, marketers now need to be able to create processdriven campaigns (based on a prospect’s activity) AND execute on them using powerful marketing automation tools. One last statistic here: 62 percent of companies today outsource their content marketing (Mashable). That’s recognition of the fact that most companies

...the ability to nurture a prospect over an extended period of time is a vital part of any B2B marketing strategy. 54

FALL 2013 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM


simply don’t have (or want to have) the necessary resources to create a consistent stream of content that will attract and convert visitors. As such, a good marketer today needs to find and manage outsourced content generation projects more than ever before. The above represents the most critical – but of course not all – the skills you’ll need to stay on top of your game. Ultimately, the shift to the buyer driving the purchase experience (aka inbound) will drive marketing to the center stage in the most successful Partner organizations. And the most successful marketers will lead – from the front row seat – that shift for their organization.

AdvTrex TitaniumGP  On another note… There are some skills that are just too difficult to learn without a significant investment, and lack of experience with those skills can really show and hurt your efforts. In this category are things like design (you CAN’T design your own website – unless you’re a website designer), and writing – being able to write an article about marketing is NOT the same as being able to research and write a business value article about manufacturing trends. If you don’t have these skill sets in your company, then the skill you need is the ability to know what you can’t do, and then outsource those key areas of your marketing plans.

ISV PROFILE The Partner Channel (TPC): What do customers like about your product? Bob Bedard (BB): They like many aspects of the product. For instance, they like that it uses native Excel on the front end. Our primary customer is the CFO of an organization. Of course, finance people love Excel as they get to use what they love. Another thing customers like about our product is that it does everything they need in a single, fully integrated product as opposed to implementing multiple products. Our architect built SAP’s Performance Management solution in 1999 and the Hyperion Enterprise product before that. When we compete with them, we win most of the time. Our product is built on Microsoft’s Business Intelligence architecture, making it powerful and scalable, yet affordable and easy for clients to support.

COMPANY: deFacto Global, Inc. INTERVIEWEE: Bob Bedard, president and CEO HEADQUARTERS: Ridgefield, Connecticut PHONE: 203-894-1789, ext. 221 EMAIL: Bbedard@defactoglobal.com WEBSITE: www.defactoglobal.com

TPC: What’s next for your company? Any new releases planned? BB: We recently released enhancements that enable customers to deploy our product in as few as two weeks. We knew deFacto was one of the most capable, easiest to learn and use, and affordable products on the market, so we also wanted to make it one of the quickest to deploy. A lot of times customers will look at simpler solutions and think they can be implemented quicker than our product. This new, pre-packaged product gets a customer’s budgeting and planning up and ready in two weeks. TPC: Is that an on-premise or cloud-based deployment? BB: From a technology standpoint, the server component of deFacto resides in private cloud environments and connects with users’ Excel interfaces over a secure Internet link. In terms of pricing, our customers prefer a more traditional, one-time licensing model versus SaaS, even if that isn’t opportune for the media nowadays.

ESTABLISHED: 1998 WHERE IT ALL BEGAN deFacto Global’s product, deFacto Performance Management, got its start in 2007 as an enhanced Microsoft Excel® add-in to Microsoft’s PerformancePoint Planning 2005 product. Microsoft decided to go in a different direction with its product, which created the opportunity for deFacto to grow its business and create a fullscale performance management solution. PRODUCT OVERVIEW

TPC: How does your solution differ from Management Reporter? BB: Management Reporter is more of a point solution around reporting for Microsoft Dynamics only. We find that there’s not necessarily a lot of overlap between a good Management Reporter prospect and a good deFacto prospect. Most of our customers don’t find Management Reporter to be scalable enough to meet their needs, and many have data sources they would like to report off of in addition to Microsoft Dynamics. The best way of looking at it is that Management Reporter is a bit more of a tactical solution, and deFacto is more strategic. Customers will deploy our product in stages, extending their use of our product from financial applications to business uses such as sales forecasting, and so on. We’re flexible enough to do that, whereas many point solutions are not. TPC: What does your customer base look like? BB: We range from enterprise customers in the Fortune 100 with hundreds of users to the mid-size market with as few as five users. (We have connectors for all of the

deFacto Performance Management is a fullyunified budgeting, forecasting, consolidation, reporting, and analysis solution. The product is based on Excel, SQL Server®, and Analysis services. deFacto’s customers range from midsize to the enterprise.

“American Hospice Management is a leading national provider of hospice services. A few years ago, we asked our Microsoft Dynamics Partner to help us select the best budgeting, forecasting, and financial reporting product to meet our needs. As a Microsoft Dynamics GP customer, it made sense to look at all of the offerings from Microsoft and Microsoft Dynamics ISVs. After our analysis, it was clear that deFacto Performance Management stood out above all alternatives. Once we completed our implementation, not only did we find that the deFacto product exceeded our expectations, but the deFacto team and support did also. Overall, we had an outstanding experience and we thank our Microsoft Dynamics Partner for recommending deFacto.” Leihlani Bajacan, controller for American Hospice Management


Microsoft Dynamics products. We’ve been around long enough to know that’s an important consideration.) I would say that probably half to two-thirds of our new customers come from the Microsoft Dynamics world, typically in the mid to upper-end of the marketplace which doesn’t necessarily mean just Microsoft Dynamics AX. What we found is that many mid-market customers need an enterprise-quality product that can handle more sophisticated needs. One of the things we find if we look at our product versus competitors’ offerings is that we’re the only one that uses the complete Microsoft business intelligence stack – Excel, SQL, and Analysis Services (Microsoft’s BI engine). If you take a look at competitors, they don’t use the entire BI stack and as a result, their customers aren’t getting the full performance capabilities or functionality. TPC: Why do Partners like working with you? BB: Our best Partners are educated Partners. We follow that mantra of “my best customer is an educated consumer.” That also applies to Partners. They like to work with us because once they see our product and really understand the market and needs, they really see the competitive advantage of deFacto. We also know a lot about competing products and can steer them in the right direction. A Partner’s job is helping their customer make the right decision for their business, and offering them solutions is the responsible thing to do. We’re happy to know that if we’re competing against two

or three others, the customer has made an educated decision. That’s a good place to be. And if we lose a deal, we want it to be for the right reasons. For instance, Partners have customers with straightforward needs where Management Reporter might be a better fit. Our view is that if it’s not a good fit for us, it’s not a good fit, and that’s okay. Too many times, Partners will partner with an ISV simply because of the margin they realize from the ISV. We don’t look at recommending a product based on margin; we look at what makes the most sense for customers. We want both Partners and customers to be happy and successful in the long term. All customers recognize in time when a Partner has steered them in the right direction or the wrong one. TPC: What do you like about the Partner community? BB: There are a number of nice things, one of which is that it’s balanced. ISVs are very different from system integrators (SI). We can offer unique value to the channel, and the channel embraces that. It’s also a well-developed channel, with good mechanisms for communicating with Partners and customers. Microsoft Dynamics Partners have a good understanding of their customers’ business needs. Other Microsoft Systems Integrator SI Partners are good with technology and have relationships with an organization’s CIO, but Microsoft Dynamics Partners have that relationship on the business side, truly understanding the value they’re bringing to the table. We love having a product that will help them out in that discussion.

CORNER MEMBERS ONLY

INTERVIEW

Founded in 1998 with its primary office located in Mount Prospect, Illinois and satellite locations in Madison, Wisconsin, and South Bend, Indiana, Crestwood Associates is Chicago’s premier Gold Certified Microsoft Dynamics Partner and eight-time Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club award winner. The company focuses on delivering Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, Acumatica Cloud ERP, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM applications.

What do you enjoy most about the fall months? I enjoy the weather change from summer to fall, especially feeling the cool, crisp air and being able to open the windows. It’s also a nice time of year to spend outdoors with my family.

What is the best business advice you have been given? Being told that it’s okay to make a mistake; just don’t make the same mistake twice. It’s a good idea to take chances and experiment; however, it is important to have a backup plan.

In what ways do you keep up with products that are upgrading and changing?

William Schroeder, director of technology

“It’s a good idea to take chances and experiment; however, it is important to have a backup plan.”

I attend technical conferences, read blogs and magazines, watch training videos, and get updates from my sales team or Microsoft representatives. The updates I receive from my team are most helpful because we are sharing knowledge and collaborating with each other on what we’ve learned.

What do you look most forward to while attending The Partner Connections Event? I’m looking forward to seeing all of my fellow marketers and having the chance to discuss our FY13 strategies and how the push to the cloud is shaping them. In terms of sessions, I’m looking forward to some great “volume” sales tips as well as advice on finding, hiring, and developing the next generation of sales professionals. Crestwood once again has the honor of presenting at the conference, both in sales and marketing capacities, which we look forward to very much.

What is the most beneficial aspect of The Partner Channel’s membership program for your company and why? I enjoy reading The Partner Channel Magazine because the content helps me learn about current trends in the channel and what we should be focusing on. In addition, The List is helpful and a great tool within the magazine.
