When IT managers implement new systems, they expect all users to be on board without any question. However, this isn’t always the case.
In fact, even the best systems can fail miserably if users refuse to use them. By finding ways to improve user systems, IT managers improve adoption rates and help businesses be more productive.
Implement Responsive Design
If you haven’t already implemented systems with responsive design, you’re not giving your users the best possible experience. Over 70% of employees spend two hours a week or more accessing business-related information on their mobile devices.
Employees need to be able to access user systems not only on desktops, but on smartphones and tablets. Using cloud-based solutions is one of the best ways to offer a responsive design experience. Businesses should also consider solutions like SharePoint to create responsive internal sites for employees to collaborate and access information.
Provide Anywhere Access
One of the best ways to improve user systems is to provide anywhere access to them. Many employees work outside the office. Whether they’re working from home or on the road meeting with clients, employees need access to business systems even when they’re not at the office.
IT managers can implement cloud-based systems that allow access from anywhere. These systems also include security controls to prevent unauthorized access to data. Some businesses even implement remote wipe policies to remove any business-related files and apps from a device when an employee leaves the company.
Customize To User Needs
While responsive design and cloud-based access drastically improve user systems, another approach is to customize to the users’ needs. Businesses can create custom apps to help streamline common tasks and help employees be more productive. Creating branded internal sites and file systems allows businesses to create the most efficient way for employees to access information. The idea is to put the needs of the user first so they’ll put the needs of the business first.
