Technology Implementation & Adoption

Strategies that optimize performance

As industries, markets, and the workforce all continue to change at unprecedented rates, organizations grow more dependent upon digital technologies to compete in today’s global markets.  Yet, without a coherent technology adoption strategy, the implementation of HCM and HXM technologies, workforce management applications, and cloud-based solutions can cause more problems than they solve.

Few aspects of the modern business environment present more challenges than the adoption of technology. These include:

  • Lack of clear or integrated technology goals
  • Steep learning curves for IT personnel and technology end-users
  • The high cost of hardware, software, security and training
  • Lengthy implementation processes that delay critical learning
  • Selecting the wrong technology for the problem
  • Poor integration between technologies that need to work together
  • Keeping pace with obsolescent and emerging technologies
  • Insufficient support from technology vendors
  • Lack of post-go-live support

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?
