How to Get Technology Implementation Right the First Time

Grant Wasch

Technology is changing all the time, and implementing new technology at your company is a great way to grow your business, improve productivity and strengthen your weaknesses. However, due to the costly and time-sensitive nature of technology implementation at many businesses, it’s critical to get things right the first time. Team Wasch is here to help ensure that your implementation is a success and as smooth and seamless as possible.

Start from the Beginning

When you are starting the implementation process, it’s important that you start from the simplest level. What isn’t working? What are you planning on changing with the new technology? How will you be measuring the success of the implementation? If you do not have concrete answers to any of these questions, you can expect to have some challenges with the implementation process. You also might experience challenges finding the right solution in the first place, as you aren’t sure what you are fixing and how you will measure the impact.

Create a Support System

Technology implementation relies on support from skilled experts and a supportive team like Team Wasch. When you create a support system, it can help to smooth over any challenges, thoroughly train the new users and troubleshoot any problems. Make sure that you tell the new users who they can talk to about any challenges so that they also know there is support available.

Do Not Rush

If you are accelerating your technology implementation plan or trying to skip steps to get to the finish line as quickly as possible, you should think twice. Pressure can ruin an implementation process before it is allowed to begin in earnest. Take time to determine what technology is the right solution. Listen to your employees who are trying out the changes and take their feedback into consideration. Work with the implementation partners at Team Wasch to fine-tune the new processes and make sure that things are going smoothly. Your employees can tell when you are skipping things and cutting corners, and doing so on your technology implementation plan is a surefire way to set it up for failure. 

Show the Value

Finally, make sure that your employees understand the value of the changes and why they are being made. By communicating the value of the technology implementation plan, you can increase buy-in. Sometimes when businesses fail to be transparent, employees believe that the changes are merely for the sake of doing something different. If you show the importance of what you are doing, how it will make the workplace better and how they can help to change things, they are much more likely to get excited.
