Successful software utilization: Communication, Communication, Communication.

February 17, 2020

A successful software implementation requires a combination of People, Process and Technology.  Often underestimated in its importance, a key marketing and communications plan ensures the difference between ticking the box that software has been implemented, through to a thriving utilization and change in employee/customer behaviour.

Generate user adoption for your CPQ software with a pro-active, engaging strategy. Crucial to success is a stakeholder and project evangelist; a media savvy individual within the organisation who crusades to drive adoption and consequently utilization.

Include in your plan as many of the following as possible:

  • Keep communication channels open and regular during project implementation with staff and customers.
  • Hold a launch kickoff session, including training.
  • Create a landing page to link to the software for staff and customers.
  • Implement Deep-linking to connect your webstore to your CPQ application.
  • Incentivize staff with sales objectives, tracked in the software over a specific sales period.
  • Create and share social media announcements.
  • Make your training and marketing support resources easily accessible.
  • Feature a demo stand at your employee and customer events.

Boosting utilization rates will result in better employee and customer satisfaction, ultimately leading to a stronger bottom line for your business.
