To support their employees after launch, it wouldn’t be enough to distribute catch-all comms and generic guides. According to Nadia, “there were two things we needed to understand, our adoption rate and usage of Workday, and also how are people using the tool that we deployed to support them.”
Then there was the support itself. It wasn’t feasible for Kantar’s central HR team to handle all Workday enquiries. According to Nadia, “the only way we could do that [provide real-time support] was to have something that was available digitally, online, that people could access anywhere, anytime.”
“We needed a way to sustain real-time support. The only way we could do that was to have something that’s available 24/7 because, like many global organizations our employee base spans every time zone in the world, but the support team was based in London.”
These requirements led Nadia to our ADOPT digital adoption solution, and to a working partnership with AppLearn, but the lesson here couldn’t be clearer. If you need to decide how much to invest into providing ongoing support to your employees, remember Nadia’s advice:
“People won’t remember what you told them just before the program went live, or as it went live, it’s really after the tool is implemented that the questions really start coming.”
Whatever the transformation project, ongoing support can be the difference, but is not a guarantee of success on its own.

Nadia also goes into some statistics on their SaaS usage and ROI vs traditional alternatives, as well as how they use the ADOPT digital adoption solution to improve visibility and user support.
