THE FACTORS BEHIND POOR USER ADOPTION The deployment of a new business software solution can be scary for your business employees. Your employees might also resist the implementation of new tools and technology, and would prefer using old systems or activities for customer relationship management. For increasing user adoption rate, you need to understand the main reasons behind the resistance. Below mentioned are five most common reasons of poor user adoption rates. 1. Lack of Management Plan Deploying or implementing a business software solution without proper training or management plan would result in a failure. No or less knowledge of tools and functionalities, won t allow your employees to grab the best returns on the investments made on the software solution. 2. The Application doesn t Help your Organization If the application is not customized to work according the needs of business organization, the user adoption rate will not be good. Any business software solution or application, which doesn t feature familiar or simplified user-interface, doesn t include meaningful reports or doesn t organizes crucial data into meaning information, would be a failure for the organization. Your employees won t spend any more time in understanding its functionalities or working. 04

5 3. Insufficient Training With Insufficient or no training of the software solution, your business employees would be confused about the usage and functionalities. As a result, they would use the software improperly or maybe they avoid using the software permanently. 4. Missing Executive Sponsor If the senior management or the reporting managers won t support using the software, the employees would automatically avoid using the same. 5. Confusion or Frustration while Learning Giving too much information or training to your employees all at once can lead to confusion or frustration amongst them. The training program should be conducted without applying any additional work pressure on your employees. Employees who are afraid of committing any mistake would definitely avoid using the software solution. IMPROVING USER ADOPTION First of all, your business organization needs to select the right path, and prepare an efficient strategy for Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation at your working base. All you need to do is hire a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, which has strong experience in working upon Dynamics CRM implementation projects. Enhancing Business Growth...! A Microsoft Certified CRM consultant will develop an effective management plan with building trust and credibility into the new technology. It must be noted that a successful CRM deployment would definitely contribute in enhancing user adoption of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM system. Below mentioned are top five ways of increasing user adoption of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. 1. The Boss should Use it Before implementing the Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution, you should share the reason behind choosing this innovative customer relationship management software with your business employees. You need to share, what you expect from this solution and the employees, who use it. The top-level management officials and bosses or managers should use the Dynamics CRM solution and also must ensure that the employees are using this solution, as instructed. 05

6 2. Train Managers to Train their Teams You must train the reporting managers first, so that they can better train their teams. Once the manager is aware of the added benefits, features and functionalities of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, they will better encourage the team members to use this solution. Their learning experiences would build an excitement about the technology, through the organization and would also help in increasing user adoption rate. 3. Software Introduction in Phases It is always good to introduce any new software or technology in phases to your business employees. You must give relevant examples at each and every step, about how the software solution is going to help tin day-to-day business activities. Allow them to spend time with the functionalities and features of the solution and ask question. Don t pressurize them to learn the software solution in one introductory session only. 4. Make Users Accountable with Reporting Requirements Microsoft Dynamics CRM features powerful and robust reporting features, which empower the management and individual users to extract any type of data, based on any criteria. The management can access data in real-time and they could easily know who is using the software and who is avoiding it. In this way, your employees would be more accountable and they would use the software solution. 5. Using the Right Tools If you are planning to deploy an on-premise version of any software solution, you ensure that the hardware on which the software is going to be launched is capable enough as well. While deploying Microsoft Dynamics CRM at your working base, make sure that your hardware infrastructure is efficient to support this innovative solution. You need to provide mobile devices to the sales teams, so that they can easily access Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile App onthe-go. For Dynamics CRM Online users, make sure that the internet connectivity is strong enough to access a huge database without any lag. If you are successful in providing good usage experiences to your business employees, the user adoption rate would be definitely high. MetaOption LLC did a great job for me. I appreciate the timely & the professional manner in which they handled my Dynamics CRM project. I would highly recommend them and I will use their services again. Eric Galvan, CEO Commerce CA, 90040, USA I ve worked with MetaOption on two occasions now. In both cases the team has strived to make sure that we (the client) are happy. I plan to continue working with MetaOption in the short term and long term future. Chris Marsh, President We have been working with MetaOption for last several years and they have always been top of their game. They are innovative, accurate, on-time and on-budget. Pixfusion 06

7 IMPROVING THE TRAINING EXPERIENCE Improving the training experience would definitely help in increasing the user adoption rate. Training and teaching your business employees about how to use the software solution properly would help you in achieving your goals and getting the best returns on your investments. Below mentioned are important tips for improving the software training experience. 1. Choosing the Right Partner for Training A Microsoft Partner is the best resource for providing Dynamics CRM training to your sales, marketing and customer service teams. You need to hire a Microsoft Certified Partner for ensuring that a proper training is given to your employees. A certified partner will make sure that Dynamics CRM is implemented in the best manner that suits your business organization needs. 2. Training in Phases Don t overload your employees with too much of training or product information, all at once in a single session. Let your team understand how Microsoft Dynamics CRM can help them in improving productivity, automate complex business operations and develop profitable customer relationships. After which, you need to teach them how to accomplish their individual tasks, but not in one single training session. 3. Personalized Training Personalized training experiences have been found beneficial in increasing user adoption rates. You need to customize training sessions, for sales, marketing and customer service teams, individually. You must make sure that each team or individual is provided with training only on those functionalities, which they need to use in their day-to-day business activities. 4. Follow-up and Experience Sharing Encourage your employees to share their experience and feedback regarding the training. Their feedbacks are sometimes very helpful in knowing whether your team has understood all the elements of the software solution or not. Always have a follow-up to know whether your employees still have any issues, questions or concern regarding the software. 5. Re-training With every new version update or addition of a new feature or functionality to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, you need to organize an additional training session for your business employees. Also, new employees would need training, either from old employees or directly from the Microsoft Partner. If needed, you must organize re-training sessions for your team. 07
