Making the move to a new software program is often a crucial step for a business to take, in order to keep the business running smoothly. And though the process may be needed, it can often be time-consuming and frustrating. Businesses are often tempted to skip vital processes. There are some processes that simply cannot be skimped on or skipped during the software implementation. Red Wing Software offers tips for successful software implementation.
Providing training for all employees involved in using the software is a crucial step. A new business software system will be foreign to most employees. Even though the processes may be similar to the prior system, there will still be a learning curve with a new system. Without training for all employees involved, the transition can be frustrating, and worse yet, employees could start to use the system incorrectly. This can lead to bad information and costly fixes. Invest in training for all those who will be using the new software, and ensure everyone understands how to perform their job correctly in the new system. The investment in training will pay off year after year.
When employees begin using a new software system and have issues or questions, who can they count on for getting the right answers? Most software companies and their partners are well-versed in the software and can get questions answered in a timely manner. Count on them for support, in times of need. Though it may seem easier to figure it out without calling anyone, this can actually lead to mistakes and faulty processes. Contact the support team for answers, to ensure the system is being used correctly at the start.
Speaking of training and support, the most effective way to bring employees on board and using a new software system correctly is to hire the software company’s professional service team to deliver personalized, on-site training for everyone involved. The professional services team can answer questions and demonstrate processes in real time, with real data, ensuring employees are on the right track and using the system correctly. Though it is typically not a cheap endeavor, the investment will pay itself off in good processes and information for many years to come.
