How the QR code is driving the quality of SAP consulting up and unprofessional SAP consultants out of the market
Online PR News – 11-April-2012 – Gothenburg, Sweden – Some time ago it was thought that the internet was a fad and a few people are taking the same opinion regarding QR (Quick Response) codes. These people will find no use what so ever in a QR code, however for the rest of the world who realise that technology moves forward in the same way every other technology moves forward, the QR code is fast proving itself to be the quickest way to deliver maximum information.
When SAP consultants started adding their CV to the mystical creature that was the 'internet' all those years ago, the CV's were randomly placed anywhere. That experience has been repeated many times over the years, with no site hosting a single, standardised format of SAP consultants, even the so called 'super sites' of today host SAP consultants alongside playwrights, actors and funeral directors.
The QR revolution has followed a more dignified approach with ConsultantBox.com providing each of the global SAP consultant members with their own, personal QR code. Every SAP Consultants' QR Code provides a direct link to their CV, availability, role preferences and most importantly, how the members of the SAP community rate their work and professionalism - all in one small image.
The QR code from ConsultantBox.com standardises how hiring managers see and instantly recognise the skill and ability of any SAP consultant.
This revolution in QR code is taking the challenge of technology vs. improving quality of consulting standards, one step further with implementation partner consultants now being included in the scope of personal responsibility for their reputation and skills. Previously, employed SAP consultants have been almost mystical to their customers as when a consultant appears at a desk on site, a customer is currently unable to assess if they are in the presence of a genius or an over priced buffoon. This is now changing because every SAP consultant and not just freelance consultants are being challenged to prove their worth in SAP.
The unique QR code each consultant receives from ConsultantBox.com is more than an information sharing tool (can be added to anything from an email signature to an old fashioned business card) as its core job is to raise the standards of SAP consulting. Though the QR code is available to any SAP consultant at any level of experience, the consultants who will benefit, are those who have earned and continue to earn a good reputation from their customers and colleagues.
These consultants will be clearly identifiable from the consultants who 'surf' their way through contracts leaving the hard working consultants to clear up after them.
The obvious benefit is that professional consultants with a good, proven and verified reputation, will be able to leverage their hard earned reputation for the first time. Not only will this put them firmly in line for the roles they deserve, this is clearly a big win for them on a personal and financial level. However, the underlying benefit though more subtle, will probably be almost as great, if all consultants are hired on their merit and professionalism, the end result will be entirely professional SAP implementation teams. Imagine that!?
The information highway opened many years ago, the QR code is among the newest routes of the road, so does an SAP consultant need to have a QR code? Only if they want to be part of the present and future in SAP.
Join ConsultantBox.com free of charge today and take control of your future. Every consultant is issued a QR code once they have confirmed their account - please note all references provided may be checked for accuracy by ConsultantBox.com trained personnel and any consultant found to be asking for or providing false reference will be removed from the site and will be unable to rejoin ConsultantBox.com at the owners discretion.
