Driving digital transformation through digital adoption

Many companies begin their digital transformation journey by empowering the workforce with a wide range of software applications. These applications, when used correctly, can skyrocket enterprises’ efforts to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, enhance customer experience, and scale organisational growth. But the challenge is, organisations can only capture the value of these new technologies if employees learn how to use them properly.

System implementation projects do all the right things: good training strategies and great change management, but once go-live happens adoption tends to not be as optimal as hoped.  This leads to organisations not getting the return on investment they were aiming for, or worse, sitting with a white elephant.

Many organisations acknowledge that integrating key digital technologies is critical in enabling the digital transformation. However, turning the priority into reality is grim because of astoundingly low user adoption rates. Here is a closer look at the challenges:

  • Lack of employee technical proficiency 
  • Increasingly complex software applications
  • Expensive to create and maintain training inventory
  • Difficult and expensive to train in geographically dispersed environments
  • Gap between training intervention and putting learning into practice is too long (learning and forgetting curve)


Digital adoption platform to the rescue

Digital adoption is a term used to describe the necessity and immediateness of understanding the intricacies of using a software application. Digital adoption allows employees to fully understand your company’s digital tools and assets, thereby maximizing the use of applications.
