Digital Adoption: Time to Switch to Self-service Support

You may have already had the impression that your software solutions weren't being used. Spoiler alert: it is more than a mere impression. According to 1E, 28% of software installed on workstations goes unused. So what can you do to foster software adoption in your company? Here’s why you should switch to Self-Service Support and how it can improve your digital adoption!


Investing in software tools isn't enough: make sure they are actually used

ERP, HRIS, CRM… Countless software tools have become essential for companies. Digital transformation dictates, tools are modernizing, multiplying and updating, to the great displeasure of employees who must keep up with the frantic pace of change.

The average employee actively uses 36 cloud services at work. This includes 9 collaborations, 6 file-sharing, and 5 content-sharing services. Since the market is still developing, few categories have a dominant provider. (Source: Skyhigh Networks (McAfee)

Having a lot of software tools also means having a lot of information to retain in order to handle them. And sometimes, employees are just confused with all of it. Not only that. Sometimes software is used, but not to its full potential. Take CRM applications for instance: according to CSO Insights, 43% of CRM customers use fewer than half the features they have on their CRM. So what do you do?


Self-Service Support: boost software adoption

What if the solution was everywhere your employees work, i.e. at the heart of their applications? By being directly integrated into the software, Self-Service Support boosts your user adoption. You’re wondering why? Because they learn to handle their software solutions without leaving them. As a result, your users have less software-related frustrations and more digital compliance! User support also enables you to support your employees right from their first use, thus drastically reducing user churn. According to the Huffington Post, supporting users in their first interactions with strategic tools can help reduce user churn by 67%.


Improve user experience

If there's something digital adoption depends on, it's user experience. It is now a centerpiece of software adoption. But what exactly affects user experience?

Ideally, users want software that is intuitive, enabling them to increase their productivity and performance. And by software, we mean software and support. Impossible, you say?

Reduce support costs

Let’s tackle businesses pet peeve! Yes guessed it:  we’re talking about costs. Money, time, skills, in terms of costs, support is a real challenge. And once again, Self-Service Support is a more than tangible solution.
