The One About Hashtags...

T

he hashtag has changed the way conversations happen online. Consider Jimmy Fallon, host of “The Tonight Show”, and what happens when he announces a hashtag during a show: Minutes later, thousands of people are connecting and sharing their experiences on things like #WhenIWasAKid. On the other side of the spectrum, you have #ThoseWhoUseThemWayTooOften and the ones where #It’sHardToFigureOutWhyTheyCan’tWriteASentenceAnymore. We thought it would be interesting to explore hashtags in this issue. Wondering what the heck a hashtag is? Check out Barbara Pfieffer’s article on page 22. Wondering if anybody has actually used a hashtag for business and seen success? Chris Elmore’s article on page 18 sheds light on the subject. You’ll also read about “reading” the vibe of your team from Tracy Faleide (page 48), see the full listing of those recognized with the 2014 Microsoft Dynamics Partner Awards (page 28), and experience a blast from the past with #WayBackMSMemories (page 52). We’re now in our 11th year of publication. That is made possible by you (yes, you!) continuing to read this magazine quarter after quarter, the advertisers who we proudly display within our pages, participants in The List who help us create the best darn list of add-ons out there, and our contributors and publishing team who keep churning out thought-provoking ideas. Here’s to keeping the #conversation going…

The symbol may be confused with the musical symbol called sharp ( ) because there are two pairs of parallel lines in both symbols. The main difference is that the number sign has two horizontal strokes while the sharp sign has two slanted parallel lines that must rise from left to right in order to avoid being obscured by the horizontal musical staff lines. To quote the great Paul Harvey, “And now you know the rest of the story.” Information from Wikipedia

On the Cover Before it became a cultural phenom, the “#” or “number sign” was most commonly used when the symbol was used before a number. In the United States, it is sometimes known as the pound sign and has been traditionally used in the food industry as an abbreviation for pounds avoirdupois. Outside of North America, the symbol is called hash, and the corresponding telephone key is called the “hash key” (and the term “pound sign” usually describes the British currency symbol “£”).

PETER JOECKEL HAS BEEN A LEADER IN MID-MARKET ERP SINCE 1986 when his company installed some of the first network-based manufacturing systems in the country. As a business owner, Peter built and eventually sold one of the fastest-growing and forward-thinking value-added software dealerships in the country. Its success was fueled by innovative software selection techniques and an outstanding project delivery team. He sold the organization in 1999 to an e-commerce provider when it had grown in less than three years from zero to $6 million in annual revenue with more than 300 customers and 45 employees. He has assisted in the selection and implementation of hundreds of ERP solutions and has been recognized for his ability to match the right solution for a customer’s needs rather than “pushing boxes of software.” Today, Peter focuses on helping companies select and implement ERP solutions by using advanced tools and processes that increase the likelihood of successful projects. His goal is to continue to improve those tools and processes to build value for customers and provide a smooth transition from the selection to implementation process.

Customer Think – The Organizational Strategy for Vertical Success story by "/..)%2/"%243/.

This article was originally published in the Winter 2005 issue of The Partner Channel Magazine. Bonnie was all set to participate in the Fall 2014 issue when she received word that her vacation spot was destroyed in the September hurricane. Her focus is better spent elsewhere, so we dug into the archives and found a message that resonated in 2005 and still heartily applies almost 10 years later.

O

ften times I hear business owners state that they wish their employees would think like owners. “Why?”, I ask. “Because then they would have the same sense of responsibility and conviction as owners,” they tell me. This may not be the right strategy. If all employees in the business “thought” like owners, no one would get any sleep, and the stress levels of the business would probably be too high to be functional. A better alternative would be for all employees to think like customers. Thinking like the customer creates actions that support and provide advocacy for the customer – which results in better service. Not only is it important to think like the customer so your team is service-oriented, but also because real innovations that capture a market’s attention are innovations that meet customers’ needs. While “going vertical” appears to be the current name of the game, how to “go vertical” successfully is the real question at hand. Who holds the secret to your vertical success? Consultants? Product vendors? Business owners? Industry specialists? While each of those may offer some insights, the real expert that holds tremendous data and information for vertical success is the customer. The success that some organizations are finding with their specific vertical targets is proof that the more you understand about the customer, the more a team is in tune with the customer’s business processes, opportunities, and risks, the more valuable the team is to the customer. The success of a vertical is not found in the product. This is not to say that a high-functioning product, doing what it is designed and promised to do, is not important. But if you assess the most loyal and profitable customers for organizations, the characteristics of that relationship go much deeper. The “trusted advisor” status that customers will entrust to you is only achieved when those that interact with the customer, whether in sales, pre-sales, analysis, implementation, or in the ongoing relationship, really understand the customer and can speak their language. So how do you help grow employees who think like customers? How does the customer come to understand and believe that people in your organization have their best interests in mind? Simply telling the customers, through various marketing or communications, that “we know your business” doesn’t convince them. Customers are smart people, too. The proof in the pudding comes in being able to speak the language of the customer, being able to create solutions that are truly customized to customers’ business processes, business timing, and industry issues, and investing the time and energy to nurture the relationship with the customer. Customer satisfaction surveying is good for benchmarking and monitoring your interactions and service with customers; however, it doesn’t get to that level of real understanding. Companies lose their intimacy with customers when the only focus around the customer is based upon numerical data. Avoid the trap. We all know of situations where we have abandoned suppliers or retailers because they turned us into a statistical point in a sea of data. How do you really connect with customers? Here are some organizational strategies I have seen work for others: » Welcome customers into your organization. Sponsor lunches with customers and your teams. Invite customers (or potential vertical customers) to be guest speakers at team meetings in order to explain their businesses and how their company and their services assist their organization in achieving success. » Visit the customer. Consultants and installers are on-site. However, their view of the customer’s business is usually efficiently narrow during that time. Visiting a customer and understanding what they are trying to achieve with their customers provides an understanding of business process that can result in breakthrough ideas in the ways in which you approach the customer. » Go where your customers go. If you have a vertical target market, do you know where people in that target industry go for information and networking? Is it a trade journal? A trade show? An industry conference? Find out and be present with a listening ear. Be willing to invest in sponsorships for key conferences, speakers for educational sessions, and advertising for their trade journals. Customers like to know that you have their general business well-being in mind before you try to close a sale. » Put faces and names to your customers. The customer can become an abstract concept. It is hard to get impassioned about abstract concepts, and in the world of business reality, abstraction is harder to sell. As a

FALL 2014 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM


leader in the organization, how you refer to customers in your communication makes a difference. Statements that put customers into a “we versus they” position with the sales organization give the message that customers are a necessary evil to the business rather than the center purpose. Inform and educate your employees as to who your customers are by name. » Analyze and prioritize your customers. The term “active customers” gets to be a catchphrase. What does “active” mean? Does it mean you have a relationship, or that they simply provide revenue to the business? Those customers seeking a loyal, trusted relationship will need different strategies for building and sustaining the relationship. » This begs the question of how do you treat valued relationships in life? You stay in touch, either by phone, email, face-to-face. The more valued the relationship, the more ways in which you will interact. » Ask and listen. Find ways to sincerely ask customers how they are doing. What issues are they facing? What successes are they achieving? And then actually listen! We all know of people who will ask us the question, “How are you doing?”, and as we begin to explain, we are very aware that they are not genuinely listening, nor do they particularly care about our response. They just asked the question because they thought it was socially appropriate. Better to not ask the question at all. When you ask your customers, “How is the project progressing?”, and “How is the business doing?”, are you and your employees actively and genuinely listening? Track what was learned from each and every interaction. Discuss and analyze any patterns of successes or

issues, and check them out with other customers. This is a lot of work, you’re thinking. You don’t have the staff to continually have this dialogue? That is why each and every employee needs to share in the understanding of the customer. It also answers why vertical target focus can bring such success, because it is easier to track patterns with like types of customers than with customers in varied businesses. Using organizational strategies to help your employees think like the customer can transform your customers to “members” of the team with a vested interest in a joint successful future.

It’s 2:36 a.m. The last thing on Jeff’s mind is his company’s ERP.

Hashtag Death How I Use a

to

and Won’t Stop

story by CHRIS ELMORE | illustration by MATT MASTRUD

M

y father is about as low-tech as you can possibly get. I tried to get my 5-year-old daughter to teach him how to use his tablet computer. All I heard in the other room was a high-pitched little girl say, “Granddaddy, I can’t do this anymore…you are on your own,” followed by a stern face wearing a princess crown stomping out of the room. My father is far from ignorant. He is the most intelligent person I have ever known. (Of course he is, right? He’s my dad; almost all men older than 18 think their dad is smart.) The challenge is that he gets lost in simple things. Imagine my surprise when he called me one morning to talk about hashtags. He wanted to know what they were, how people used them, and why they were important. Now, at the risk of showing off, I have written and have had published three books, I have a very active blog (www.apautomationnews.com), and I have the privilege of speaking at more than 30 conferences per year…all on technology. Unfortunately, even with that experience, I had no answer to his questions. I didn’t even know where to begin to explain to him what a hashtag is. The sad part is that I use them all the time. I ignorantly started using them as a response to some kind of social pressure or my need to fit in. (Let’s face it: We never really leave our school mentality of needing to be part of the crowd.) At the risk of sounding too much like the guy on the side of the super information highway who has his vehicle on blocks and is using a rag for a gas cap, I have greatly benefited from a single hashtag in three primary ways: » WordPress: One of the things I love about writing, presenting, and just rubbing elbows with Microsoft Dynamics Partners is the ongoing need to communicate better. For me, WordPress helps me do that. I write an article three times a week from one location (WordPress) and put my hashtag in the title of that article. WordPress then distributes that article and hashtag to Google +, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. » Twitter: All of my articles are re-posted on Twitter two times daily with the same hashtag I use on WordPress – via Hootsuite. » Random Post: WordPress and Twitter are more formal ways of hashtag-ing, but when I do a random post about traveling or a speaking engagement, I normally post on Facebook and use my old hashtag friend.

The nuts and bolts of all this is this: I only use one hashtag: #APAutomation. Sure there have been others, including #Payables, #AccountsPayable, #Accounting, and #Hashtag (I don’t really want to talk about the last one; it was a very difficult breakup). I noticed that when I abandoned the old familiar #APAutomation, I wouldn’t get the same level of comments, reblogs, and re-tweets – things I live for…seriously. Those are the three things that tell me that I am on the right track with my content. Being on the right track isn’t a fun thing I do with my spare time; it is how I ensure that I am writing about the things people want to talk about, and then I take it one step further.

BEYOND HASHTAGS Once I find out what people are interested in, I write an eBook on the topic and create a corresponding breakout session for a conference or a keynote. Then the eBook becomes a chapter in one of my published books which becomes my primary way to let the world know how I

20

can help them (lead generation). Here is an example: I wrote a blog about the “15 Terrible Pieces of Advice for #APAutomation”. It was my top-preforming blog (comments, re-blogs, and re-tweets; I even had someone write an article and use my blog as a reference) last year. I turned it into not only an eBook, but also six webinars and eight speaking gigs – all with the same name/title. It all started with a topic that trended with a hashtag that sparked some interest.

IT’S TRUE I don’t really know what a hashtag technically does, or how it works, or the technology that supports and drives it. All I know is that the hashtag is the only way that I know I am writing and speaking about the things that people want me to write and speak about. To say I would be lost without it is a little too much drama, but I sure do feel much better about my content. If a small little character can ensure that I don’t have an irrelevant speaking session or book, then I think we can all agree that #TheWorldIsABetterPlace.

#Hashtag WHAT THE

AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?! story by BARBARA PFEIFFER | illustration by DAVE SWANG

A

whole magazine with a hashtag theme? What else could you need? Well, if you’re not really active in social media, probably a little more information about what hashtags are and why they are so important. If your experience with hashtags is #Sharknado or the Jimmy Fallon/Justin Timberlake video (look up “Jimmy Fallon hashtag” on YouTube; really – do it – it’s pretty funny), then you probably are wondering why you should care. Let’s start with a little history. The very first hashtag (#barcamp) was suggested and used by Chris Messina, an open source/open web advocate, in August of 2007. He suggested it on Twitter as a way to group discussions about Barcamp, virtual technology gatherings that he helped create. After that, hashtags really went mainstream when Messina suggested the use of #sandiegofire in order for people to share information on the forest fires near San Diego that fall. Since then, they’ve helped fuel the Arab Spring, leading to regime changes in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Yemen (#Egypt and #ArabSpring) and brought us millions of old big hair photos and other memories for Throwback Thursdays (#ThrowbackThursdays or #TBT). They have also lead to participatory TV (#Sharknado) where the fun lies as much with viewers’ comments as with what’s on screen. So with such diverse use, is there really a benefit for Microsoft Partners? The answer is YES. Before we get to that, let’s start with the basics.

The very first hashtag

(#barcamp) was suggested and

used by Chris Messina, an open source/open web advocate, in August of 2007.

WHAT IS A HASHTAG? It’s simple. A hashtag is a # sign (hash) followed by a word or group of words. The addition of the # sign makes the phrase searchable. When you use hashtags, you can organize posts to create a thread of conversations around a single topic. An example you’ve most likely seen is Microsoft Dynamics Convergence (#CONV14 for this past year’s event), which allows Microsoft employees, Partners, and customers to see all that’s being posted about the conference in a single thread – and at the same time creates a conversation with the social attendees.

THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM | FALL 2014

Anatomy of a Hashtag: Rules and Tips for Creating a Great Hashtag » Always start with #. » No spaces. While you can have as many words

as you want, you cannot have spaces. If you do have more than a single word, consider an initial uppercase letter on each word to make it more readable. For example: #HowToCreateAHashtag » Keep it short. The characters in a hashtag count

toward your 140 word count on sites such as Twitter, so #BuyMicrosoftDynamicsERP is probably not a good idea. While you are unrestricted on Facebook and Google+, if you’re going cross-platform, you’ll want one hashtag you can use across all. Plus, why make it difficult for people to retype your hashtag? » Numbers are fine, but don’t use punctuation or

symbols.

WE’RE NOT ON TWITTER – WHY SHOULD WE CARE? Great question. While the practice started and is extensively used on Twitter, today Facebook, Google+, and YouTube also take advantage of hashtags. The lone holdout? Instagram, which had enabled hashtags but discontinued their use last year. Given their popularity and utility, it’s likely we’ll be seeing hashtags in other online communities (including those that don’t exist today) and that at some point, LinkedIn will have some version of the hashtag back in its toolkit. One thing to keep in mind: the platforms use hashtags differently, so you need to spend some time understanding the variations. For example, on Facebook, clicking on a hashtag takes you to posts with the same hashtag, while Google+ also pulls in posts with similar keywords and Google results.

Create a hashtag when you have something “substantial” to share and you want others to join the conversation.

Follow The Leader: Hashtags You Should be Using Today Not unexpectedly, Microsoft has A LOT of hashtags. There doesn’t seem to be a central place where they all are listed, so we have compiled this short list of the most popular ones: » #MSDynamics » #MSDynERP » #MSDynCRM » #MSDynCOMM » #DynamicsGP » #MSDynGP » #MSDynAX » #MSDynNAV » #MSDynERP » #CONV15. (Although I’ve yet to see anyone using this tag, Microsoft has used CONV followed by the year for the last four Convergence events.)

FALL 2014 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM

WHEN SHOULD I CREATE ONE? HOW SHOULD I USE IT? Create a hashtag when you have something “substantial” to share and you want others to join the conversation. For example, when you’re hosting a customer event. Set up a hashtag, and then share it with Partners, ISVs, customers, and employees. Encourage everyone to use the tag before, during, and after the event. In other instances, you may want to take more of a “follow the leader” approach. If you’re going to be at Convergence, for example, use the hashtag that Microsoft is using for maximum exposure for your posts. Want something unique? You can use more than one hashtag in a post (note that the recommendation is to keep it under three), so it’s okay to use #CONV14 and a custom tag you create in the same post. By the way: You don’t need to start a sentence with a hashtag – they can go anywhere, as in: Join us at #rocknrave at #GPUGSummit.

HOW DO I CREATE ONE? Type a # sign followed by the word or phrase that describes your conversation; then tweet or post. Really, it’s that easy! The challenging part is knowing what word or phrase you want to use. Here are two simple steps to follow:


» Start by making sure your hashtag is available. If you use a

NEXT STEPS?

hashtag someone else is using, you are joining their conversation. You can check out hashtags that are in use, and see how they’re trending on Twitter, with free tools including www.twubs. com and www.hashtags.org. These sites make it easy to see if someone else is already using your idea. » Although anyone can use your hashtag for any reason, you should still define or register it. This makes it easier for people who are searching for topics to know if they’re in the “right” conversation. #MicrosoftDynamics might be obvious. #CONV14 – not as much. On Twubs, when you register, you can also set up a page for your hashtag. This is a great idea if you’re using the hashtag for an event. You can create an event room and even get embedded code, which enables you to put the conversation on your website.

Hashtags do not have to be scary. Hopefully you have learned some new ways to use and create them. If you’re still unsure of how you might use a hashtag, why don’t you start by joining the conversation for this fall’s The Partner Connections Event (#TPCE14)? Share your experience and connect with the speakers and attendees. You might be surprised to see who else is posting, what you may have missed, or who you might run into at the event.

TPC INTERVIEW

Hal Howard

executive director of Dynamic Communities, Inc.

Hal Howard joined Dynamic Communities, Inc. (DCI) on September 15, 2014, as the organization’s executive director. Hal formerly served as the corporate vice president for Microsoft Dynamics ERP R&D for 11 years and celebrated 20 years total at Microsoft. The Partner Channel reached out to Hal after hearing the news to talk about his new role, next steps, and advice for Partners. The Partner Channel (TPC): What’s one thing you were always asked at Microsoft that you’re so glad you don’t have to answer anymore? Hal Howard (HH): The crazy thing is, I’m not sure I won’t have to still answer a bunch of questions. If you listen to the podcast I did with the guys at Dynamics Podcast, you’ll learn that I’ll answer just about anything. I guess one question would be, “What’s Bill like?” I still get that one. Lately a popular question was, “What’s the difference between Steve and Satya?” It’ll be nice to not answer those types of questions, but I’ve always been candid – even though people might not like the answer.

was read through your Twitter posts until I hit the day you joined. It was mentioned in the press release that you’re excited to reconnect with users and Partners, and I could see from your posts that you are sincere about that connection. What are you looking forward to most as related to staying in the Microsoft Dynamics community? HH: This new role is definitely on the personal level for me. I was fortunate to have 20 years at Microsoft, and now it’s a time for me to give back to the community by getting out there and spending time with customers and Partners. I put a premium on that time as the reason you build a product is for people to use it. You also want them to like using the product, so having that connection is part of the whole gig.

TPC: What are your fondest memories of your time at Microsoft? HH: The growth and evolution of the channel and products, and meeting so many unique and interesting people. Partners represent so many different parts of the world, and the opportunity to meet with them and work with their teams was fantastic. I also really enjoyed seeing customers get the most out of what we were developing. I remember when we were developing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. We had a customer that had just implemented six months ago, and they came to us with a list of things they wanted enhanced. We did a presentation on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, and most of what they wanted was in that release. They decided to go for it, and it took them less than a month to upgrade. When you get that synergy between what a user wants and what the product can do, it’s good for the customer, uplifts the team, and makes the experience worthwhile. That example speaks to a broad category of experiences at Microsoft over the years.

TPC: What are the first things you’d like to do at DCI? HH: When Andy (Hafer, DCI president) and I talked about it, effectively the goal was pretty simple – grow the communities. AXUG® is celebrating 10 years this year, but it still has a ways to grow as it’s not established in Asia and Europe. We have the opportunity to grow the footprint around the world and get people involved. Whereas AXUG is the most established, GPUG® is growing, CRMUG® is getting traction, and NAVUG™ has room to grow. Relatively, when you think of the number of customers Microsoft Dynamics NAV has, NAVUG has a lot of room to grow. For me, the Dynamic Partner Connections org is the fledgling one, and we have a real opportunity to grow this community around Partners. The Partner community is betting its livelihood on the vitality of the (Microsoft Dynamics) community and its products. That’s a big personal goal for me and the rest of our org as well.

TPC: I have to admit that I was shocked to hear that you’d be joining the Dynamic Communities team. The first thing I did

TPC: Speaking of Partners, one of the things I heard coming out of the U.S. kick-off was concern about referring to Microsoft

26

FALL 2014 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM


Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics SL as “Microsoft Dynamics SMB”. To me it sounds like a marketing initiative, but can you offer any product reassurance there? HH: There are four very distinct products, and while they do target similar markets, each has its own community. The reality is that they’ll be distinct for a long time. Part of Partners’ frustration is the flashbacks to Project Green. That’s not the intent. It really is more of a marketing thing, targeting prospects in that space, and it’s important to remember the difference between the product roadmap and the marketing roadmap. We are far too quick to market a product than an offering, if you will, which is something around the customer’s actual needs. The targeting for a specific product can happen later. TPC: What would you offer as advice to a Partner? HH: The main thing for Partners is to consider their unique value add. What do their customers value them for? Many Partners get caught up in the wrong thing about what they think of themselves. The key is for them to figure out what their customers value them for, whether that’s their people or their expertise or their intellectual property. Far too often, Partners say yes to too many different things and don’t stay focused on what they do best. The economy is in a good place for driving growth, so they need to stay focused. And, they shouldn’t worry too much about what Microsoft is up to; doing so can make them forget their unique value add. There is plenty of business out there. Microsoft Dynamics only represents a four percent market share across the board. That means there is 96 percent to take! I also see Partners getting bogged down competing against each other or looking at the Microsoft Dynamics products against each other. The other Microsoft Dynamics products aren’t the competition. Sage, Infor, Oracle, etc. are the competition; not another Microsoft Dynamics Partner or product. Partners need to stay focused on what they’re doing best and have a concrete vision on what they do. TPC: How about as far as joining the User Group? I have had Partners tell me that they’re not totally comfortable with it. HH: I used to hear the same complaint about sending customers

to Convergence. It’s a bunch of silliness. Rarely do people change Partners after attending an event, and it usually only happens if they’re already very unhappy. This is an education opportunity for users, both on product and on what the community and their Partner have to offer. Partners will drive more business for themselves because when customers come to events like Summit, Regional Chapter meetings, or Convergence activities, they see things they haven’t implemented yet, and they will ask Partners about it. That leads to additional service hours and users deployed. User Group involvement shows a commitment to the community, and it’s shortsighted to not trust customers to be in that environment. There are incredible local chapter leaders out there, and you can really see the difference in areas where those communities exist, from sales in the region to add-on development to user knowledge. It’s all goodness. TPC: That’s a great phrase. How long do you want to be part of this goodness? HH: It’s a strange world. When I announced I was leaving Microsoft, hundreds of people came out of the woodwork to see if I’d like to help them out. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a high capacity, so this will be a good role for me but won’t be 24x7. I’ve done some things already with smaller organizations and have a passion for wine and the wine industry, so I’m spending more time there (see sidebar to learn more about the winery where Hal is a part owner). I’d like to do a variety of smaller things for a while. TPC: Is there anything else you’d like to share with Partners? HH: I’ve been involved in this community for the last 10 or 11 years, and I’m excited to be here for the next few years, to see it grow and foster that growth in the overall Microsoft Dynamics community. We have a real opportunity to move forward as a group, not only from the products, but also from shared wisdom. I love the commitment of people who have been here for a while. Andy and Frank (Vukovits, AXUG program director) are incredible people. The other chairs and members of the team are awesome. The volunteers are incredible. Working with these people is my biggest reason for being involved.

Hal is part owner of Brian Carter Cellars, a winery located in Woodinville, Washington (www.briancartercellars.com). The company was the first small winery to set up shop in Woodinville in 2006; now it is flanked by more than 40 small wineries and is part of Washington’s 800 commercial wineries. The Cellars produces between 75,000 and 100,000 bottles a year and has more than 1,000 customers on its mailing list. “If you’re in the area, please do reach out as I’m happy to host a wine tasting,” says Hal. “We also sell products directly to the customer, and we ship anywhere in the U.S. where it’s legal to ship. If you’re on the West Coast, your bottle shop has the opportunity to carry Brian Carter Cellars, so be sure to ask!” You can contact Hal via email at Hal.howard@dynamiccommunities.com or on Twitter: @DynamicsHal.

ecent Gallup Poll results indicate that an estimated 70 percent or more of the professional workforce is unengaged or actively disengaged (meaning they would take another job as soon as they could). Global research by Towers Watson (2013) found that the single highest driver of employee engagement is whether the manager is genuinely interested in his/her employees’ well-being. The research also found that less than 40 percent of employees felt that support. The Magnetic Company Way (MCW) is a philosophy and a methodology that results in a positive revolution that provides inspiration, clarity, and simplicity. The result is a purposeful company with the h right i h people l (clients ( li and d employees), l ) processes, and d profit! fi ! #E #Engagement says it i all! ll! Through the simple process of learning to apply the MCW, employees become more loyal, productive, engaged, and intrinsically motivated to reach their potential; the company reaches its goals; AND customers can’t wait to do business with said company again and again.

BUT WHY THE MAGNETIC WAY? Research indicates that businesses with greater employee satisfaction also have: 86 percent higher customer ratings, 78 percent better safety records, 76 percent more success in lowering turnover, and 44 percent higher profitability (7Mindsets.com). The Magnetic Company Way was developed as a result of research by Robertson and Company in more than 100 companies in 10 different countries. The research found that engaged employees and profitable companies all share four things, also known as the Four Ps: » Purposeful work » People who care about the customer » Efficient processes » Profitability Purposeful work is about working in a company where the leadership team answers “Why do we exist?” Patrick Lencioni, author of “The Advantage” (learn more at www.tablegroup.com/blog), states that most companies define why they exist by creating a mission statement. Mission statements, although important, work to clarify the strategic direction of the company. The “Why do we exist?” question inspires people to want to execute on the mission. To create purposeful work, answer the following questions: What does your business do? Why does it matter? What is YOUR purpose within your company? The most important tools in defining purposeful work are communication and involvement. Talk again and again about the purposeful work and engage everyone (even customers) to participate in the dialogue. The second part of a magnetic company is the people. How are the best people to serve the customers and each other in your company? Who are the best customers, and how do you get more and keep them? If you are the company owner, ask yourself what you are doing to provide a healthy company culture that inspires people to work for you and customers to buy from you. The fundamental cornerstone of the people part of your business is having good leadership and management. We have all heard that the number one reason someone leaves a company is because of his/her direct supervisor. Do your leaders know how to coach others, unite teams, clarify strategy, and execute? If you are a team leader or an individual contributor, you can clarify your purpose by focusing on the customer. One of my previous bosses would say to me when I wanted role clarity (yes, I asked daily for job direction), “Your role clarity is to serve a customer!”. If you don’t know what to do, go ask a customer and figure it out!” She said it a little nicer than that, but I think you get the point. Maybe you want to create a #WhatIDidfortheCustomer hashtag for all employees to tweet! THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM | FALL 2014

The third part of a magnetic company is process. Two simple questions: Is it simple to get work done, and is it simple for the customer to do business with you? Mark Twain said, “If I had more time, I’d write you a shorter letter.” That is the fundamental principle of the process. Back by popular demand is lean management, which has muda (waste elimination) as one of its fundamental principles. Process improvement is my adrenaline rush. It’s about trying to eliminate all work that does not directly impact a customer (internal or external). It’s about asking yourself every day what you are doing that is inefficient and how you can remove steps to execution. It is about changing your current value map to a future value map that is customer-centric, simple, and employee-driven. It’s about building your house of lean that is based on plan, do, check, act. It’s about simplicity! It’s about answering these questions: How do you get work done as simply as possible? How do you talk to each other? Who’s accountable? Who makes decisions when we can’t agree? The fourth part of a magnetic company is actually the result you get when you have purpose, people, and process working at optimal levels on

behalf of the customer and the employee. It is profit. As an owner, your accountability is to define the business model and give local ownership to budget and revenue goals. Once you define the business model, get out of your employees’ way. Show up when you have to course correct, inspire, and remove obstacles. As an individual team leader or contributor, it is your responsibility to understand and seek understanding if not readily available to answer the question, “How do we make money and earn a profit?” PERIOD! The Magnetic Company Way is not rocket science, but it takes commitment. It is easy to focus on the tasks because they are important, but before you know it, you are standing in a forest and can’t seem to see the trees or the moss on the trees to help you navigate. You certainly can’t experience the beauty. Being lost in a forest is the same way employees or customers feel when you have failed to create a purposeful experience for them! Imagine your workforce having a competitive edge because your employees were all “in it to win it” because they felt vital to the business, cared for by their managers, and closely connected to their customers. Novel idea? Maybe or maybe not. Competitive? Definitely!

kay…so the title of this article is not really a hashtag that you see in the Microsoft Dynamics channel, but it would be if people were not big fraidy-cats. More specifically the hashtag would be #ScrewedAgainByMicrosoft. Let me explain. As a longtime Microsoft Dynamics Partner that has worked in both the Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics GP world, I constantly hear this complaint from my Microsoft Dynamics GP friends. Every Convergence or other Partner-related event is an opportunity to vent about the latest indignities visited upon the downtrodden Microsoft Dynamics GP channel. Everyone knows the issues by heart. Primarily that Microsoft Dynamics AX gets all the love, and Microsoft Dynamics GP folks are getting the scraps that fall off the big boy table. Coming back from New Orleans and the FY15 Microsoft Dynamics kickoff event, I can report that there is now even more evidence to alarm the Microsoft Dynamics GP crowd. Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM are all the rage, right behind the cloud and moving everything to Microsoft Azure as fast as possible. Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics SL are now all lumped together and referred to as Microsoft Dynamics SMB. This is great news because misery loves company. Let’s analyze that for a minute: S…M…B! As in small and medium-sized business. Small and medium. Maybe just a little bit bigger and more sophisticated than a QuickBooks install. Not BFB, big and fabulous business, but small and medium. If all of my eggs were in a good-sized practice dedicated to selling and servicing Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV customers, I would now be concerned as well. So is there really an issue? Of course there is, but I don’t think it’s time to panic…tomorrow maybe, but not today. Figuring out when to actually panic requires some analysis of what is happening. Here is my condensed version: » Microsoft is worried about competing with Google, Apple, and other giants like itself. » The Microsoft Dynamics business is just a portion of the business that is Microsoft as a whole. As such, I doubt most at corporate even knows what Microsoft Dynamics GP is, never mind figuring out strategies on how to screw Microsoft Dynamics GP Partners. As far as Microsoft corporate is concerned, all they know about Microsoft Dynamics and all they care about are the following: » Number 1-10: Azure…oh yeah, that is not Microsoft Dynamics, but hey…you get the point. » Number 11: Microsoft Dynamics CRM, because that has the greatest possible opportunity to get people into “cloud licensing” or the golden goose; repetitive revenue. » Number 25: Microsoft Dynamics AX: If we can only figure out how to spin up as many servers on Azure as possible to run Microsoft Dynamics AX, we might someday stop giving awards to competing ERP Partners! » Number 123 or maybe 233 (I was not taking notes fast enough): Microsoft Dynamics SMB. Let’s see, if we can get all the Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partners to sell Microsoft Dynamics CRM licenses. Hmmm…oh just forget it.

Microsoft Dynamics GP,

Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and

Microsoft Dynamics SL are now

all lumped together and referred to as Microsoft Dynamics SMB. This is great news because misery loves company.

I know all this to be true because I am a Microsoft board member, and I sit in on all of their important management meetings. Just kidding. Actually I am guessing based on observation anecdotal evidence. Bonus points: Is that deductive or inductive reasoning? So how do you deal with this environment to avoid #ScrewedAgainByMicrosoft NON-POSTS? » First and foremost, ignore it. It’s not intentional. Never was and never will be. It’s just a big company with bigger fish to fry. » Recognize that it is happening and plan accordingly. The biggest shortterm threat is from competitor messaging. You have to have a good story when your prospect tells you that they “heard” that Microsoft is discontinuing the Microsoft Dynamics GP line. » Don’t panic and pick up new products. New mid-market ERP vendors are taking advantage of the dissatisfaction in the channel using it as a recruitment tool. I would, too. But is the grass really greener? And what is the real cost of picking up a new product? » Don’t forget the power of the installed base! Just because Microsoft wants everyone to buy Microsoft Dynamics AX or convert to it does not mean it is going to happen. Project Green anyone? With Partners panicking maybe this is a good time to be a great remaining Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner. » If you can’t beat them, join them. Add a Microsoft Dynamics CRM practice or figure out the opportunity in upgrading Microsoft Dynamics GP customers to Microsoft Dynamics AX. Hint…it’s fantastic. » Additional revenue. There is a goldmine of “non-VAR” revenue in your installed base. In some cases more than for a software and services sale. Believe me, I’ve done it. Or if all else fails, grumble and pout. Enough for today, I have a Microsoft Dynamics Partner program update I have to read, and I’m sure it’s not good. 38

o you know Sam the Sales Guy, Ann from Accounting, and Mike in Manufacturing? To improve your sales and marketing efforts, you need to get to know these people intimately – after you create them. Sam, Ann, and Mike aren’t real people. They are the names of personas who represent real people. Personas are fictional characters who are a composite of real-world people and who illustrate the values, goals, and behaviors of your typical ideal clients. These “fake people” can make or break your sales and marketing success. When I started in the Microsoft Dynamics (Great Plains) channel back in 2000, I was super excited to really get to understand this industry and thrilled when my company sent me to my first marketing training class led by Mac MacIntosh. Mac is a great trainer, and I learned a lot – but I was disappointed when the class didn’t really cover anything about the sensibilities and challenges of the people who buy Microsoft Dynamics. Over time I realized that neither Mac nor Microsoft – nor anyone else – can create YOUR ideal client profile and then just hand it to you. To attract the right customers, the personas you create must be unique to your organization. The number of personas you need depends on the size of your organization and the diversity of your customer base. A persona profile goes much deeper than demographic information. In addition to organizational size, title, and geography, a well-researched persona profile answers the following key questions: » What is their role? » How is their success measured? » What are their daily challenges? » What are their sensibilities? » Where/how do they learn information? Once you’ve defined a persona, it’s a marketing best practice to cap it off with a name and a picture so that your personas have more personality and are more memorable.

WHY PERSONA DEVELOPMENT IS IMPORTANT Personas have been a marketing concept for a long time, but they’ve never been quite as important as they are now for the following eight reasons: » You’re not in charge any more. Inbound marketing is about attraction, not interruption. As buyers have become more self-reliant for solution research, you may find more than half of the sales process happens before you are even aware that the sales process has begun. Your job as a marketing and sales organization is to enable prospects through the Buyer’s Journey. Since our goal is to get them to buy Microsoft Dynamics, let’s call it the #DynJourney. There are three stages to the #DynJourney: Awareness, Consideration, and Decision. Your job is to develop and deliver the right information to the right persona at the right #DynJourney stage. » The people involved in the #DynJourney change throughout the evaluation process. If you sell HR solutions, your contract signers might include the CFO or the CEO, but those aren’t the people who are most acutely aware of the need. Your Awareness content might need to be aimed at the HR manager, and your Decision content aimed at the CFO. By knowing your personas, you’ll know what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. » Your prospects are not “just like you.” Often the person selling and marketing is nothing like the persona being sold to. Your marketing person might be extremely creative, spontaneous, fun, and attracted to bright colors, inspirational quotes, and new ideas. The ideal target client might not “get metaphors.” They might be introverted, love knowing what’s expected, and you might imagine they wear khaki pants and a blue polo shirt to work every single day. Your job as a marketer is to live in their world, use their terminology, and appeal to their sensibilities to facilitate their #DynJourney. » Your prospects and customers are not “just like each other.” Several of my clients are active in multiple industries, from banking to construction. While the easy way out is to focus on the software (what we do/what we sell), they get BY FAR the most traction by crafting content specifically focused on the industry personas as they proceed through their #DynJourney. Although being personalized and focused is substantially more work for the marketing team, that focus is what generates results. » It’s easier to communicate across the entire organization. Just like the tech industry has mastered the art of the TLA (three letter acronym), personas can become a shortcut to aid insider communication. If you say, “This prospect is a Mike” or even track personas in your CRM system, everyone from marketing to sales to consulting will have a sense of the best ways to communicate your company message with this particular persona. As an added plus, personas help educate departments who don’t have regular direct contact with customers. Unfortunately, this often includes the marketing departments charged with creating the marketing messaging.

Âť Your #DynJourney content can tell a story that appeals to the personaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensibilities. Far too many of the blog posts and social media content I see are still too â&#x20AC;&#x153;seller-oriented.â&#x20AC;? Your website pages are perfect places to talk about your features and beneďŹ ts. Your blog and social media entries should touch on the buyer personaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges and values, be relevant, and perhaps even tie into current events. Tell a story that resonates. How can you make their day better? How can you help them achieve their goals, even going beyond what your company/solution does? Âť You gather clues on how to become an insider. Join their communities. Are you active and visible in the places where they are engaged (online or in person)? How can you show that you are part of their circle? Buyer Personas give you a clear understanding of where their virtual water coolers are and the types of information they like to share. Âť You know who NOT to go after. Some companies create â&#x20AC;&#x153;negative personas.â&#x20AC;? Negative personas are people you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want as customers because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll burn out your consulting team, give you a bad reputation, or are too diďŹ&#x192;cult to accommodate. These customers may be too big or too small, or have too long of a sales process. Knowing these personas will allow you to squelch those deals quickly so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn time. Personas are not a new concept, but their relevance has increased as inbound marketing has become more prevalent. With more than 200 million blog posts posted every day, the ONLY way to stand out is to be relevant. Relevancy comes by knowing who you are talking to and how you can help.

ISV PROFILE

TPC: Give me the eBridge Connections’ elevator pitch: Colin Brown (CB): eBridge Connections helps you connect your accounting or ERP system with eCommerce platforms, EDI trading partners, CRM applications, and more.

COMPANY: eBridge Connections INTERVIEWEE: Colin Brown, founder and CEO WEBSITE: www.ebridgeconnections.com HEADQUARTERS: Burlington, Ontario, Canada

TPC: What problem inspired you to start your company? CB: I wanted to address the EDI integration problem with Microsoft Dynamics GP (then known as Great Plains) back in 1994. There was nothing that worked universally with all SME accounting packages. The solution we developed, EDI Bridge, solved that issue with NO transaction fees.

PHONE: 905-631-8333

Colin Brown

EMAIL: Cbrown@ebridgeconnections.com

TPC: So how did EDI Bridge work? CB: First we built bridges that worked with Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics AX, and Microsoft Dynamics SL (then known as Solomon). Then we created a mapping tool that connected those systems with all the trading partners in North America. The idea really took off, but after 50,000 or more maps, the total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers got to be very expensive as the connections had to be rebuilt if they upgraded, and the components were not reusable.

ESTABLISHED: 1994 USER TESTIMONIAL: “We migrated to an eBridge cloud solution a year ago when we upgraded our Microsoft Dynamics GP software. It handles our EDI orders efficiently with little or no interaction. eBridge also designed a process that converts our product activity files (852) to a CSV format so we can import the data into a special database to track our retailer sales. I really value not having to worry about certificate exchanges or updates to new EDI versions. eBridge Connections has provided us with an integration solution that has effectively automated our EDI document processing, and in the process, helped us save valuable time and lower our expenses.” – Jim Moritz, H&R Block Digital Tax Solutions

TPC: How have you transitioned your solution to bring the TCO down for your customers? CB: We changed our name to eBridge Connections and built a cloud-based SaaS application that exchanges data between systems using shared business rules instead of maps. Having reusable integration components available through this SaaS solution has allowed us to bring down the TCO for our customers because new connections are much easier to set up and maintain. TPC: Besides being cost-efficient, what do customers like most about eBridge? CB: The solution is flexible, and since it is cloud-based, customers can see their integration points online and on their mobile devices. The automatic connections and audits through a web-based application give our customers the scalability and freedom to succeed. For example, Amazon will do 500 orders a day, and all that data shows up as an order in Microsoft Dynamics GP. We also offer a free design tool, eBridge Blueprint Builder (www.ebridgeconnections.com/blueprint), where visitors can generate a complete view of their connections and data touch points. TPC: Very cool…and user-friendly! Tell me more about the eBridge Blueprint Builder. CB: We set out wanting to create the first and only (FREE) public and universal blueprint builder for the SME accounting marketplace. We succeeded, and we’re very proud of what we’ve created. Today we have more than 5,000 live touch points and move one million integrated documents a week.

FALL 2014 | THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM


TPC: How does it work? CB: It’s an easy three-step process in which visitors select their accounting or ERP package, the business platforms they would like to connect to (eCommerce, EDI, CRM), and the specific data touch points (e.g. sales orders) that they need to integrate. Once that information is collected, we generate a complete view of the integration solution, which can be further modified, saved, or exported for reference. Microsoft Dynamics Partners also use it to design integration solutions for their clients. TPC: What’s on the horizon for eBridge Connections? CB: We want to make our integration solutions completely do it yourself (DIY) so that professional services aren’t required in every case. Today the cost of each touch point is about $80 per month plus a full day’s worth of time to install and configure it. If customers can do it themselves, then the cost of integration goes down and they save even more money while still getting the functionality they need. So be on the lookout for more DIY options from us! TPC: Besides EDI, do you work with other applications? CB: Yes. While our solution was originally designed for EDI, in the last three years we’ve added integration with eCommerce solutions such as Magento, Amazon, and eBay as well as CRM applications, including Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Salesforce.com. We’ve discovered that VARs who sell Microsoft Dynamics CRM often need to integrate it with XYZ in order to make the sale, so by making those connection points for them, we’re able to enable their sale while saving them and their customers money along the way. TPC: What do you like most about working with Microsoft Dynamics Partners? In addition to enabling their sales with integration points, how do you support their business? CB: The Microsoft Dynamics community is such a great ecosystem with well-trained and supported individuals. We have to certify our solutions just like Partners, so they need to know their stuff versus working with VARs who don’t even use their own accounting package. Because we don’t sell accounting or CRM, we’re also not in conflict with Microsoft Dynamics Partners, which makes the partnership more comfortable. For these reasons, we value working with Microsoft Dynamics Partners and offer a revenue share of 20 to 30 percent starting out. We also offer various education opportunities such as webinars, including an upcoming one scheduled for October 23. The eBridge Blueprint Builder is also a value-add where Partners can design integration solutions for their clients, ultimately saving time and money.

SOCIAL QUESTION: Vanessa Veflin of Archway Marketing Services asks: “What would you say about the future of technology in a keynote address to a graduating class?” Colin Brown: “Keep your foot in the door and keep on learning! Technology is continuously changing, so be open and share.”

story by TRACY FALEIDE

n the time it takes you to read this article, you could change the course of countless lives. Right now as you read, there are hundreds – no, thousands – of online opinion polls waiting just beyond a click. And if the Internet seems too much trouble, just your thumbs will do. On any night of the week, you can text a string of numbers to select the best new juggler, dancer, singer, or chef. You sometimes get lost in the blog-o-sphere, foisting your informed (or uninformed) political, economic, and social opinions on the world. And when you take a time-out to go to the office, you’re being asked to rate your daily happiness (or crabbiness, or vindictiveness) at work. You are very powerful. You are also very dangerous. You don’t mean to be. But you are. What would our world be like if all decisions were based solely on anonymous opinion polls? Think about it. Maybe only a few, precious square miles of our planet would be spared from the threat of warfare brought on by hotheads and too much wine. Generations who would have benefitted from the good works of young politicians

who misspoke or wore the wrong suits might go unserved. Gamechanging innovations challenging the popular, the status quo might never get funded or released. If there’s too much reliance on anonymous feedback in your office, you might be missing the mark, the truth, the next big idea. Why? Because anonymous feedback is fueled primarily by our hearts and the heat of whatever we feel in the moments just prior to us pressing “Send”. When you gauge employees’ attitudes, be sure your sources and interpretations are balanced. Tune into multiple channels at various times and in several ways. Resist the urge to “go for the likes.” Otherwise, you might be holding onto popular but counterproductive elements of your company’s culture. Here are four simple ways to stay in tune with the real vibe in your company – and not one of them is anonymous.

If most of your announcements are made passively by email, you’ll miss seeing the unmasked reactions your team members can’t help but convey with their eyes. Stand up in front of them. Tell them in person. You’ll know without question how they feel when you look them in the eye.

WATCH THEIR EYES.

GO STRAIGHT UP THE MIDDLE.

I recall a time I was in a meeting that was going pretty well until someone in HR sucked all the air out of the room by showing a slide that portrayed a comprehensive position description and salary range review projected to take nearly a year. Ten months. Holy cow. I didn’t see faces because I was in the middle of the room, facing forward. But I certainly felt a loss of oxygen, a swift and irreversible shift in mood. I watched the CEO watch the audience. And I saw him react swiftly by saying some changes will be made in the interim. I imagine the view from his vantage point – eyes dropping down to notebooks, looking away, maybe even blinking back tears of frustration. A singular, unmistakable shift in spirit.

At best, you might get a 40 to 70 percent response from employee satisfaction surveys. Compared to something such as an email marketing campaign, this range is stellar. But don’t be lulled into thinking that’s good enough. Make a simple pie graph like this one where blue represents what you get from anonymous, often emotionbased feedback, and orange represents the vast unknown. That’s a big slice of orange.

FIND THE REAL WATER COOLERS. Where do people go when they don’t know where to go? To the desks of their confidants, their co-conspirators, the ones who help them sort things out. The less people believe what you or other leaders say, the more they’ll seek solace in others. Are people grouping up in clusters of two or three after meetings? Do the people in these clusters stop talking and break up when you walk past or notice them? If so, something is up that you’re not yet getting.

THEPARTNERCHANNEL.COM | FALL 2014

The other thing about the blue is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often comprised of attitudes from your youngest, freshest, newest team members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ones who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been around long enough to be jaded. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you need to go straight to the middle by asking your middle managers, supervisors, and project managers to ďŹ ll in the rest of the story. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones who carry the water of strategies set by those at the top. They answer the questions, smooth out the edges, ďŹ ll in the gaps. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also the ones who might be less likely to respond to surveys because they feel like their feedback falls on deaf ears. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re among the weariest. But you can simultaneously bolster their spirits and get a more accurate view of attitudes by sincerely asking them to tell you what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not hearing. They really want to make a diďŹ&#x20AC;erence. You can let them by asking them directly. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know more, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel more valued. Win, win. You know that your staďŹ&#x20AC; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their managers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited to the party, right? Good. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tracking with me.

ADD IT UP IN YOUR HEAD. Humans are hard-wired to judge every single event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everything we hear, see, feel, taste, and smell. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we learned what terrain was safe, which animals might eat us, and which we could eat. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned over the eons to categorize the millions of judgments we make into more general impressions, so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exhaust ourselves worrying about countless potential threats. We inherently learn to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get the gistâ&#x20AC;? of situations. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to put up with quite a lot of bad if things are mostly good. But our memories are long. Somewhere in the back of everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind is a scoreboard. When we start to feel like more decisions, messages, processes are tipping out of our favor, our â&#x20AC;&#x153;gist metersâ&#x20AC;? start to slide from good to bad, from hopeful to pessimistic. Once our meters get too far in the red, it takes a long time to move them back into the black. (Remember, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re programmed to be skeptical.)

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave the gist meters in your company to chance. Pay attention to all the signals theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting from all sources. View each new policy email from their eyes. Just one new policy might seem innocuous, but if it comes on the heels of several other events perceived to take away freedom or impose additional layers of bureaucracy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adding to the dreaded downhill slide of attitudes and optimism. Essentially, I just told you to stop, look, listen, and ask. Things that you already know how to do, require no whiz-bang technologies, and give you much more objective, actionable data than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever get from just the â&#x20AC;&#x153;click-truth.â&#x20AC;?

The marketing team at Great Plains celebrating Working Naked Day with a picture. Working Naked Day is an actual “holiday” celebrated on February 1 of each year and is meant to celebrate the act of working from home and the freedom that results from this situation…not going to work naked.

PEOPLE PICTURED (FROM LEFT TO RIGHT): Cheryl Strege, Sherri Bellefeuille, Mark Olson (Mojo), Jeannette (Stoker) Larson F.A.Q. ABOUT THE PICTURE: Q. Are you actually naked? A. (from Cheryl Strege) No. We just pulled our shirts down over our shoulders and Mojo took his shirt off. Otherwise we are completely clothed. Q. Was this a yearly occurrence? A. (from Cheryl Strege) No. I’m afraid it didn’t catch on.

FOND MEMORIES RECALLED: Cheryl Strege, “It was so fun to be part of that atmosphere where people worked really hard but also had a great time while doing it. We all knew the company trusted us and wanted us to have fun while encouraging lots of creativity…Working Naked Day included!”

Time machine shelf in Rob Lloyd’s office with items such as a Great Plains Stampede to Fargo cup to various Microsoft Dynamics tchotchkes.

DESCRIPTION OF STAMPEDE: The annual event started around 1985 and included several activities including welcoming Partners as they arrived at the airport in Fargo, a lively Q&A session with Doug Burgum, great Expo time where relationships were formed and trust was built, an Awards Ceremony where everyone dressed to the hilt and celebrated each other’s accomplishments, and so much more. FOND MEMORIES RECALLED FROM STAMPEDE: Cheryl Strege, “One of my favorite Stampede memories took place only a couple of weeks after the 9/11 bombing. It was a somber crowd in attendance, of course. The stadium was dark and the audience was very quiet, just patiently waiting for the opening of the conference. In the dark, Kara Ellefson started singing

an a cappella arrangement of “America the Beautiful” while little pinpoints of light, like stars, slowly came on. You could have heard the proverbial pin drop when she finished, and I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the place. I still tear up today when I think about it.” Matt Gustafson, “Doug Burgum’s ‘open microphone’ Q&A sessions with Partners were always a highlight because you could not only get a direct read on what our Partners were thinking, but it was also an open forum where you were never sure if things might get uncomfortable, or hostile, or ‘love-fest-y’. I loved the spontaneity of it all.” Jane Olson, “It’s hard to come up with just one memory, but all of my memories include Partners and being able to see them again or meet them for the first. I organized the Expo for many years, and after fielding many questions leading up to Stampede, it was great to finally meet face-to-face. To this day I still value those relationships that were created back then!” Have more great memories and/ or pictures of Stampede in Fargo? Use #WayBackMSMemories on social media to let us know!

INTERVIEW

Joesoftware is a group of highly-specialized professionals who make software that works for people wherever they are. Joe’s team has created an impressive collection of products, enhancements, add-ons, and custom applications to work with Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The company is on a mission to consistently exceed client expectations through integrated tools that help offices run efficiently and get people important information quickly. Building strong relationships with Partners and clients, keeping the process simple and flexible, and investing in the best talent in the field are Joe’s keys to success. How do you spend your free time during the fall months? I enjoy coaching and refereeing hockey. I am also an active road bike cyclist and spend some time in Palm Springs riding as well as golfing.

In what ways do you use social networking tools to promote your company? We use Twitter and LinkedIn the most, and we started blogging weekly on our website. Our team of 15 employees meets on a regular basis to brainstorm and build content, which works great for maintaining an intimate culture within our company. 

What is the best business advice you have been given?

Gord Wengreniuk, Vice President

Surround yourself with a great team, and then empower them to excel. By strategically selecting projects that truly inspire them, they are excited every day, do their best work, and often go above and beyond. The results are always astounding, and this leads to strong retention, great references, and projects that provide high value to our Partners and customers. In our earlier years, it was sometimes hard to choose not to engage with projects that did not fit with our core competencies or had stakeholders that had different business cultures than ours. After enough war wounds, we embraced the importance of only selecting work we can truly succeed at. 

What upcoming events are you attending to deepen your sales, marketing, and leadership skills?

“Surround yourself with a great team, and then empower them to excel.”

I plan to attend eXtremeCRM 2014 in Las Vegas, Microsoft Dynamics GP User Group Summit in St. Louis, and WennSoft Synergy in San Diego. At this time we aren’t an exhibitor; however, we are looking at changing this in the future and sharing information on Marshal, our occupational health and safety snap-in product for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

What is the most beneficial aspect of The Partner Channel’s membership program for your company and why? Utilizing The List within The Partner Channel Magazine. We find great value in The List, and I personally enjoy reading the magazine because it’s well-written and includes tips that provide a different perspective.
