In an increasingly complex and rapidly changing digital world software is only as powerful as those who use it:

Some Key Challenges for all Organisations: 

  • 80% of IT managers realise user training and documentation is critical to project success
  • Without this over 40% of purchased software ends up as shelfware
  • 1 hour of training saves 5 hours of lost productivity
  • Untrained users need 6x more support than trained users

The Solution: Following recent deployment of ART (Adoption Readiness Tool), a wide range of organisations have:

  • Saved 50 – 75 % of time to produce and maintain materials
  • Reduced configuration/implementation errors by 25-50%
  • Significantly reduced “how to” calls to the support desk
  • Paid back their investment in under 6 months
