Transition

When all is said and done, every Accordant project should have some sort of closing procedure. This means ensuring that there is an official conclusion and the business operations have been enhanced through the implementation. This is a process of tying up loose ends and transferring knowledge and enabling your team to take control. It is a phase that validates that the solution purchased, works and meets the clients need. We call this process Transition at Accordant.

Our number one goal for any engagement is to implement a solution that performs as intended supporting identified use cases and drives Business Relevance. Simply—We help our clients operationalize IT by collaborating and using technology to optimize the processes necessary to meet business objectives.

Operationalize — it’s something that has concrete, measurable impact on our client’s business.  Transition provides confirmation that the criteria for customer acceptance has been met and identifies any outstanding business activities, risks and issues have been addressed.  Transition validates that business relevance has been applied by the technology!

At Accordant, Transition is a core value and the final component of our focus. Our team is committed to finishing our projects and sharing our knowledge. We believe that focus on Transition is a critical element of the 5 Star User Experience you have come to expect from our team.

Transparency

accordant-04

While transparency is most often seen in the realm of social responsibility and compliance, its real benefit is when it’s seen as a business priority. So what does Accordant mean by Transparency? It is about information.  It is about the organization being upfront about the actions it takes, and working in collaboration with customers and partners; and validating whether those actions are consistent with its values. At Accordant, we embrace Transparency because we know that our customers are more confident when they feel they’ve been engaged and made a part of the process. We are open, honest and accountable.

As a team, we believe that Accordant is meant not only to grow a community of people interested in the business virtualization and cloud solutions that we offer but to serve that community in a responsible manner.

At Accordant, Transparency is a core value and at the root of our focus. Our team is committed to communicating and involving our clients in the process. We believe that focus on Transparency is a critical component of the 5 Star User Experience you have come to expect from our team.

Happy Holidays!

Money—Is this what’s on your company’s list?

accordant-03

On every company’s Christmas list we think there would be increased revenue and decreased costs.   A partner needs to be able to impact either or both of these outcomes.   So how does money move?    We all know that to make money, we have to spend money.  It only moves 2 ways – in, or out.  As the pace and complexity of today’s business increases, a partner must rise to the challenge and support clients in the endeavor.  At Accordant we want to truly understand how your business works, know how you make money, and as importantly, what costs you money.  We strive to be a strategic partner that supports helping clients increase revenue and reduce costs.  This is Business Relevance.

As a team, we will identify and implement solutions to help achieve success. Does your “partner” even know what your business is or does?  Do they even know what your mission or objectives are?  Do they know how their technology impacts your business?

accordant-sphere-star-03At Accordant, Business Relevance is a core value and at the root of our focus. Our team is committed to knowing how your money moves. We believe that focus on Business Relevance is a critical component of the 5 Star User Experience you have come to expect from our team.

It’s a Mind-set, an attitude—EXTREME OWNERSHIP

accordant-02

In Simon Sinek’s best selling book, Starting with Why, the mantra is “People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it.” Sinek insist that instead of asking “WHAT should we do to compete?” companies must ask, “WHY did we start doing WHAT we ́re doing in the first place, and WHAT can we do to bring our cause to life considering all the technologies and market opportunities available today?” The answers to these questions create Sinek’s Golden Circle– – a WHY is just a belief…HOWs are the actions you take to realize that belief…WHATs are the results of those actions – everything you say and do. At Accordant, we know our Golden Circle and everyone believes in the “why,” understands the “why,” then pursues the “what.” We also know that everyone is a leader. Leadership doesn’t just flow down, but up as well. We must take ownership of everything in our world. That’s what Extreme Ownership is all about…everyone owns it all.

Thanksgiving Partnership

accordant-01

This Thanksgiving we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers, users, technology partners and employees.   It is our appreciation of these partnerships that keeps us focused on delivering first class secure virtual works spaces and cloud solutions with a 5 Star User Experience.

We value your business and appreciate your confidence in us as well as our Best of Breed Technology Partners—Citrix, Tintri, Carbon Black, Green Cloud and Nutanix.

During this holiday season we will be sharing Accordant’s core values with you. Thanks to your feedback and communication in this marketplace, we have identified our core values and are confident that it is our commitment to these values, which enables us to deliver an unparalleled user experience for you, our partner.  We truly believe that focusing on these areas has created the 5 Star User Experience you have come to expect from our team.

accordant-sphere-star-01Creating partnerships will help us maintain the focus we need to make good decisions and harness the power and commitment we need to weather volatile times. Partnering represents our “capacity to anticipate what customers need even before they know they need it.”

(Results-Based Leadership, Dave Ulrich, Jack Zenger, and Norm Smallwood)  For this reason, Partnership is one of Accordant’s #5StarUX core values.

“Customer partnership is a shared journey to create a future for both parties that is better than either could have developed alone.” There is no doubt that the customer is the foundation of an organization’s success. In today’s turbulent times of rapid and chaotic change, “no force is more grounding and stabilizing than a partnership with customers.” (The 80/20 Principle, Richard Koch)

According to the author of Slow Down, Sell Faster, Kevin Davis,  “A strategic partner helps a company “see the future faster, and in a new and different way.” As your strategic partner, it is our goal to be in it with you, help to mutually develop solutions, know and understand your business goals then turn our knowledge into action on your behalf. You can be confident in the fact that as your strategic partner, we will not attempt a one-size-fits-all approach. Together we will chart your long-term future and focus on transformation, not transactions. Together, we will navigate unexpected currents and course-correct when industry dynamics shift. We will open new doors and help you meet your business challenges.

Again thank you for your partnership.  We wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.  May the joy of the holidays extend to you and your family now and throughout the coming year.
