Valuable Digital Adoption strategies

Overcome employee resistance to digital transformation

Businesses are digitally transforming. They are operating in a way they never did. From streamlining internal systems to customer interactions, every aspect has taken a step up which has ushered a change in the life of everyone associated with it. Nevertheless, it is quite natural for employees to resist this change. The reason for resistance is the absence of awareness, insufficient knowledge, lack of understanding and training. To overcome this change, encourage the employees to learn new skills, train themselves, train others to grow confidence, and explain the potential benefits for the employees, the customers, and the business. 

Provide personalized in-app training

For the employees to use software efficiently, they should be given in-app training about the features and functions with training manuals and log-in access to the software. The training should teach them to use the technologies to maximize engagement and productivity and increase ROI. 

The training content should be readily available for the users in various forms such as PDF, PPT, videos, LXP courses (Learning Experience Platform), LMS courses (Learning Management System), walkthroughs, etc. It will ensure that every user understands the content easily and conveniently.

Digital Adoption budget planning

Digital Adoption demands time and investment, but at the same time, you also need to look into cost-saving and ROI. With careful planning and analysis, prepare a budget that supports your project.

  • Plan the budget considering the relevant digital adoption project and the people involved.
  • Recognize the potential funding sources that will help allocate funds when required.
  • Identify the benefits the digital adoption project will bring to the employees, customers, and thus, the business. It must involve the expenditure along with the success metrics.
  • Adopt an agile methodology that will help streamline the project roadmap, meet deadlines, ensure transparency, protect the team's reputation, and help approve a budget request.

Easing the pressure on support centers by using modern support tools

It allows the trainers to know about the features used more frequently by the users, and the ones avoided by them. This helps them understand the user’s progress in the training process. It is relevant information like this that trainers use to recognize users who require motivation and find ways to encourage them to keep learning and improving.
