Digital adoption platforms are designed to help people get the most out of other applications. They normally work by overlaying guidance on the screen (as in the example shown here).
By providing step-by-step help inside an application, digital adoption platforms can help users learn to use unfamiliar software quickly.
Normally, we see digital adoption platforms used for tasks such as:
Because DAPs provide the guidance in-app (at the click of a button), they make complex software easier to use, and task completion more accurate.
Large-scale implementations of tools such as Salesforce often run into teething problems. Users are habitual creatures – as former consultants, we've seen what happens when these kinds of digital transformation implementations go wrong.
These kinds of projects are where a digital adoption platform can shine – by offering an overlaid software that can be accessed from inside Salesforce (or other tools) in real time. For their part, companies can create easy to access tutorials, support, and guide-throughs for their users.
Well, lots of things. But it's normally one of these...
An on-screen interactive guide is changing the way we utilize digital products exactly as GPS changed the way people drive. Through a digital adoption platform, you don’t need to worry about training users in person or hiring additional onboarding support. The DAP handles the process for you through an automated and seamless on-screen step-by-step instruction to users on how to use your digital product(s).
There's no point spending thousands (or millions!) on products that your team don't get the most out of. Digital adoption platforms are a way to drive adoption, and minimize additional support costs, by making sure that your team understand how to properly use features.
Understanding what people are doing can help you make better decisions about what needs to happen inside your company. With a digital adoption platform, you can gather insights that allow you to understand if users are using your features, or whether they need more support.
Getting employee onboarding right is what makes and breaks careers. Digital adoption platforms ensure that users who are new to your products get the training that they deserve.
