Digital Adoption

Digital adoption is the process by which users learn to leverage new technology (software products, apps, websites, etc.) to its fullest potential and derive maximum value from a digital process or solution.

Digital adoption is a process focused as much on humans as it is on technology. It aims to increase user productivity, improve user experiences, and optimise software. A successful digital adoption strategy sits at the intersection of these three pillars and culminates in an effective, mature digital workplace.

Digital adoption refers to:

  • The implementation and adoption of new software or technology
  • Adoption of digital workflows or processes
  • Adoption of a digital culture or mindset
  • Organisational changes that occur as part of a digital transformation

When successful, digital adoption has far-reaching business impacts. However, such initiatives can cause workplace friction and will fail if not managed properly.

The benefits of digital adoption include:

  • Streamlined workflows
  • Reduced costs
  • Automated business processes
  • Improved revenue
  • Increased customer satisfaction or employee satisfaction

Because digital adoption is not a trivial endeavour, many businesses utilise digital adoption solutions such as digital adoption platforms (DAPs) to streamline user onboarding, optimise daily operations, and ultimately realise the true value of their systems.
