Independent Technology Consultants Key

If you are considering an enterprise software-enabled transformation project (such as ERP, CRM, HCM) for your business, then you need to understand why partnering with a truly independent technology consulting company is so important.

Digital transformation projects are complex and will require you to make hundreds of key decisions along the way. 

Most businesses undergoing this change will need expert consultation for these technology projects. But, where most consulting companies offer objective advice, this is not the same as being 100% independent because often they will have vested interests, that don’t benefit you, the client. 

At SMC, we pride ourselves on being a 100% independent, technology agnostic, consulting company specialising in digital transformation.  

“We are always client-side throughout the lifecycle from strategy, future state process modelling, selection, and implementation to go-live. Being independent is our number one company value, which we live and breathe, and it guides our behaviour”, states Jamon Johnston, CEO, and Founder of SMC. 

Why is this important to you? 

At SMC we don’t benefit in any way from recommending enterprise software solutions or implementation partners, ever. That means we can provide you with totally unbiased advice that’s in your best interests. This is rare to find. 

SMC has a track record of over 550+ digital transformation projects and our clients span many industries, and their business needs are wide-ranging. But the one thing they all have in common is that SMC has provided truly unbiased advice on the best software solutions for their specific requirements. 

Because the fact is, that poor recommendations and unfit solutions proposed by conflicted or biased providers are a common cause of project failure. It can also cost you time, money, and frustration. That’s why partnering with independent technology consultants is key.

“At SMC we don’t sell ERP or enterprise software solutions – but we do know the market like no one else. Vendors don’t pay us for favourable research or to influence client decisions. SMC has no affiliations or partnerships, so we don’t take commissions or other financial incentives. This means we can represent your interests without any conflicts, unlike other leading consulting firms”, adds Mr Johnston.  

SMC is passionate about helping you make smarter technology decisions. Choosing a truly independent partner, like SMC, will be the first of many great decisions you make and will be key to your digital transformation success.  

SMC is a 100% independent advisory and consulting company that specialises in enterprise software to enable your digital future.
