An enjoyable system enables adoption


Why an 'enjoyable' system is key for a successful rollout and user adoption? To derive true value, users must willingly adopt and use the system. Forced adoption, however, often leads to workarounds outside the system, whereas creating an enjoyable experience encourages continuous usage within the system.

> Why a 'likeable' system is key to successful user adoption​
Speaker: Anne Færch​ | Arla

> How can TECHNIA’s Unique Solutions support you with adoption and gaining speed​
Speakers: Anders Axelsson & Toomas Vaks | TECHNIA

Digital continuity by smart enterprise integrations

Track #2 | Simplicity: Next Smart Step
Moderator: Henrik Limborg & Arik Gilboa

Take the next step toward efficiency and speed. Let us show you how TECHNIA can support you in speeding up time-to-market, becoming more efficient, reducing costs, improving quality, and incorporating sustainability in your product innovation.

Over the years, we've helped many companies in their journey to address those challenges. The key is to connect disciplines in your company, such as engineering, manufacturing, and services, by using unified product information and relevant concepts, creating a traceable and consequent information flow throughout the product lifecycle process.

How can you get there? It might be that you haven’t yet gone beyond the capabilities of your much needed CAD system. It could be that you're using a limiting PDM solution that isn't capable of breaking silos. It might be that many manual, error-prone, and non-value adding activities are costing you time and effort. Or it could be that you find you're always starting your work from scratch rather than reusing and configuring. Whatever the reason may be, this session is focused on you.

TECHNIA customers and experts will show you how you can get there. We will provide examples of business value that was achieved, present a well-proven methodology to formulate your specific business value and roadmap and show the tool that is used in practice to achieve those business values.
