In this blog, we are sharing how to avoid a software implementation going wrong, while maximizing the benefits of the software solution. 

Develop a roadmap 

One of the most critical aspects that make a software implementation work is whether you have a roadmap or not. Having a roadmap can help you avoid failures that can waste money and affect your business reputation. 

Through the roadmap, you should address your pain points and the challenges you are trying to solve inside your business. As well as the goals you are trying to accomplish with the solution. 

You should also conduct a cost and benefit analysis to be fully aware if this new software will be a worthy investment or not. A timeline should also be present for the implementation. Including a test, and duration to avoid full implementation ending in failure and affecting your brand image. 

Finally, you need to list detailed processes to be aware of the priorities and responsibilities of each task. 

Focus on your teams

Before implementing a new software solution, your focus shouldn’t be solely on the technical side. Your employee’s usage of the software solution will still decide how far you are going to benefit from the new solution.

You need to identify which employees will be affected by each process that will be automated or replaced with the new software solution that is implemented. 

Training your employees for some time before you fully implement the software solution will be a great practice to follow. 

After the training comes the testing, as you can take the implementation to be applied but not with full scope. So that you can avoid any frustrations. Full implementation can be risky, as customers can be affected negatively. 

Get the solution fully customized

Before implementing a software solution, you need to consider full customization before the implementation. Whether customization on features or on the UI, they will be smoother if you do it before the implementation of the software solution. 

To learn about the customizations that you need to consider. You can both get in touch with the software developer or the manual of the software, based on what is available.
