Technology Implementation and Adoption

As the automotive industry changes at an unprecedented rate, companies rely on advancing technologies to compete in the marketplace. Yet without a comprehensive technology adoption strategy, the implementation of ERP systems, workforce management applications, mobile technology, and cloud-based solutions can cause more problems than they solve. 

When technology implementation and adoption go well, they can contribute to significant cost reductions, improved productivity, a more engaged workforce, superior business results, and a healthy return on investment for the technology spend.

The question is: how do you get from point A — constantly struggling to make the technology work, to point B — the seamless implementation and adoption of technology in all areas of the business?

That transition is a crucial one, and we make it easier, smoother, and demonstrably more successful for our clients.

Few aspects of the modern business environment present more challenges than the adoption of technology. Challenges such as:

  • Lack of clear or integrated technology goals
  • Steep learning curves for IT personnel and end-users
  • High cost of hardware, software, security and training
  • Lengthy implementation processes that slow delivery
  • Selecting the wrong technology for the problem
  • Poor integration of systems that must work together
  • Tracking obsolescent and emerging technologies
  • Insufficient support from technology vendors
