The Adoption Challenge

Industry experts acknowledge it takes more than software to transform a business. Your enterprise software is a powerful tool, but to harness that power, irrespective of the actual technology, your workforce must adopt the software and use it accurately and intelligently.

77% of surveyed IT organizations agree solution adoption is a significant or major challenge,* but how do you bypass the adoption challenge and unleash the full potential and productivity of your team?

The Key to a Successful User Adoption Strategy

A fundamental requirement in user adoption is for the learner to have an appreciation of their part in the end-to-end process. The expectation for the learner is that learning is specific to their job role, accommodates their preferred learning style and is from one comprehensive source, whatever the subject matter—system, non-system, compliance or governance.
