We all know how it goes: you’ve sourced a new solution to do some of the heavy-lifting, so you and your team can focus on the good stuff - the value-added work.
You made a business case to secure the investment, and now you’re excited for everyone to start using the software to increase revenue and productivity, as well as reshaping how the business handles a process - for example, contract management.
You start your subscription, but there’s one problem - no-one’s using the software.
You know this is an issue; no adoption from users means no value delivered. But how do you convince people to change their routines and embrace new technology?
Luckily, through working with our amazing customers at Juro, we’ve developed three steps that are effective in driving adoption and value.
How to adopt new software successfully for your business
1. Set up for success
Preparation is key. The hard work doesn’t end after you agree to purchase the software; your efforts must now be directed towards the initial onboarding and adoption phase.
1. By setting up clear success metrics you can really identify pain points you are solving and what success will look like over the long-term. It can also help ease the onboarding process over time. These success metrics should be tangible - like having a fully-signed contract sent via your frictionless contract workflow, or having 80% of your users create a contract from scratch.
2. It’s also important to establish clear deadlines. Add more structure to the adoption stage; it’ll help pinpoint specific concerns and speedbumps the team might encounter in the future.
3. And finally, setting up a structured onboarding plan will ensure each software user feels comfortable taking the plunge into a new routine with new technology - especially legal users, who might not be accustomed to disruptive legal software, or sales users, who don’t have the time to learn about new platforms.
