Why Some S2C Projects Fail
The buying organization often spends a lot of time and energy selecting the right software solution without much consideration for implementation, configuration, data migration, training, and roll out of the solution. However, post-implementation is where the real work begins.
Depending on the S2C solution and the maturity of the organization, post-implementation typically requires:
Change management when adapting from manual to digital processes or from legacy to new systems
Driving widespread user adoption
Breaking down resistance and building buy-in across the organization
Monitoring and driving performance
Calculating and reporting on benefits and ROI
Continuous evaluation and improvement
Learn how to accelerate your digital transformation the right way with Scanmarket.
Most software solution providers offer training as part of the implementation process. These trainings usually happen before users begin actively using the solution. For those who are tech savvy or have had experience using similar solutions, this will usually suffice. However, all users will be unable to assimilate and remember everything.
Some software providers offer user manuals and video recordings, which can help to a degree. However, many users are left feeling unsure and anxious about using new systems. They will often feel they don't have time to learn the new system and continue to do their tasks manually, outside of the system.
Learn by doing. Scanmarket's project-based learning approach enables users to learn at their own pace, with dedicated support. They execute their first projects in the new system with full confidence and save time as this type of training is integrated into their their daily work so they are learning as they carry out their daily tasks. Users learning by doing with expert support which increases assimilation and how much they remember for their next project.
Step by Step
Training is carried out in steps, mirroring how users would normally execute on projects.
Participants learn only what they need for the project they are going to run. Participants immediately use that experience to set up and launch a real-life project, maximizing the assimilation of the training.
Participants receive full support from a dedicated Scanmarket expert during the program, ensuring that projects are executed fully according to best-practices.
