Technology Implementation & Implementation

As the automotive industry continues to change at unprecedented rates, manufacturers rely upon advancing technologies to compete in the marketplace. Yet, without a comprehensive technology adoption strategy, the implementation of ERP systems, workforce management applications, mobile technology, and cloud-based solutions can cause more problems than they solve. 

When technology implementation and adoption go well, they can produce significant cost reductions, improved productivity, a more engaged workforce, superior business results, and a healthy return on investment for your technology spend.

The question is: how do you get from point A — constantly struggling to make the technology work, to point B — the seamless implementation and adoption of technology in all areas of the business?

Few aspects of the modern business environment present more challenges than the adoption of technology. Challenges such as:

  • Lack of clear or integrated technology goals
  • Steep learning curves for IT personnel and end-users
  • High cost of hardware, software, security and training
  • Lengthy implementation processes that slow delivery
  • Selecting the wrong technology for the problem
  • Poor integration of systems that must work together
  • Tracking obsolescent and emerging technologies
  • Insufficient support from technology vendors

Preparing Your People to Succeed in the Era of Digital Transformation

Many companies are implementing new technology in support of broader digital transformation goals. However, transformation isn’t just about implementing technology; it is about fundamentally changing how employees leverage that technology to produce business outcomes. And these fundamental changes do not just happen—organizations must put purposeful and effective solutions in place to enable them.
