    • Eliminating the App Learning Curve for Users Speeds Up Digital Transformation

      Digital transformation changes how business processes are completed, with new apps and services being essential elements in the entire process. Understandably, the focus of many businesses has been on the design, creation, and deployment of these apps. But they are beginning to realize that they cannot afford to ignore perhaps the most important aspect of launching new software: user adoption.

      In the past couple of months, there has been a lot of discussion about improving the employee experience, with the recognition that employee engagement is a necessary precursor to an improved customer experience. Sir Richard Branson stated the need to do this quite clearly: “It sort of should go without saying—and it's surprising that it still doesn't go without saying at some companies—if the person who works at your company is 100% proud of the job they're doing, if you give them the tools to do a good job, they're proud of the brand, if they were looked after, if they're treated well, then they're going to be smiling, they're going to be happy, and therefore the customer will have a nice experience.” See More
