Technology is constantly disrupting businesses, and any businesses that wants to survive needs to adapt and work faster than their competitors. However, change is not easy, especially for big companies. Despite the resistance change is necessary, and companies need to adopt new technologies like e-procurement. Here are some tips to help your company successfully implement and adopt e-procurement technologies.
Getting Past the ‘How’ to the ‘Why’
By now, you might already know the benefits of public e-procurement if you are choosing to adopt its systems to your business. However, the biggest mistake companies make is only sharing these benefits with their senior management. The users of the new systems also need to understand why the shift was necessary and the benefits that come with it.
This way, adoption will be easier since the employees understand the benefits. It is better to share knowledge with all stakeholders, including your employees, since they are the ones in direct contact with your clients.
Consider Automations and Proper UX
Where possible, try to make the system as automated as much as you can. The less time a user needs to think about the next process, the less time they will spend on the system. Automate steps to save time. Also, try to reduce the number of clicks to enhance user experience. You will need tightly coordinated systems for this, so try to look into it even before you have the final tool activated.
Pay Attention to ERP Questions in Line With Usability
Enterprise resource planning systems (ERPs) have amazing features, and it is easy to get them as partners. However, when it comes to usability, they are not as friendly as the system ought to be. You need to make sure your ERP is simple to use. You can do this by asking your IT department to remodel the system in a way that makes it easier to use.
