Companies value choice in technology vendors, and for good reason. Only you really know your business and your particular challenges. Yes, companies within a single industry tend to have similar needs, but the details are often what really defines a company and creates that all-important competitive edge.
So choice is good! With a list of your needs in hand, you can compare multiple vendors to find YOUR best fit. From your back office software vendor to your POS provider to your web portal developer, you should hand pick the pieces that fit your puzzle so you can create an ideal complete solution.
ADD Gives You A Choice
At ADD Systems, we believe in choice. We’ve made choices within our own solutions, with your needs in mind, in order to give you as many options as possible. But our products may not cover your entire solution, nor should they.
When it comes to partner products, we define ourselves as partner agnostic. It’s not our place to choose your POS device, your tank monitor vendor, or solutions for other specialized aspects of your company. We recognize that what is right for one client may not be the best answer for another, so we want you to make the best choice for you from the many compatible solutions that complement our offering. We will not funnel clients toward a particular vendor’s solution as a result of our business relationship, and we suggest you question vendors who do.
In many cases, the opportunity for partnerships is built right into our software with products like SmartConnect®, a portfolio of web services that empowers third-party developers to create new applications or interface existing third-party applications to ADD Energy E3®, our back office software. We want to make interfaces to our product as easy as possible.
Because of our experience, there’s a good chance ADD Systems already has a relationship with a company you are considering. But we are happy to add more. What’s the process of beginning a new partnership? Bring your vendor to us. We look forward to expanding our list of SmartConnect partners that can offer our clients more value. It’s that simple.
But With Guidance
But, of course, there are challenges to choice. The list of potential vendors might be huge, overwhelming even. We’ve all been to a diner and flipped open that enormous menu full of choices, only to be stumped when it’s time to order. We can help with that.
Over the years, we’ve worked with many technology vendors – more than 75 active partners today – and that alone can help you develop a short list. Not only do you know who ADD has worked with successfully, but through the ADD User Group (AUG), you have a list of references more than willing to share advice.
Relationships Are Everything
Your partners are our partners and we value those relationships as much as you do. Through guest blogs featured on our ADD News, you can learn about some of our partner offerings and how they can help you. Our goal is your success, so we share ideas that we think may be beneficial to you.
Keep an eye out for continued partner features, and rest assured of our continued commitment to your choice.
