A Winning Formula for New Technology Adoption
Getting users to adopt new technology has traditionally been a struggle. After all, change can be hard. One bright spot of the COVID-19 pandemic is that new technology adoption levels have skyrocketed, particularly the adoption of cloud technology to enable remote work. As McKinsey aptly put it: “Digital adoption has taken a quantum leap at both the organizational and industry levels.”
But even while over 90% of organizations are using or plan to use Microsoft 365 in some capacity, and 93% of McKinsey survey respondents said their organizations had experienced an increase in remote working, achieving absolute, organization-wide user adoption of cloud technology – or any technology for that matter – remains a pipe dream.
That’s what makes the implementation of the Colligo product suite for Microsoft 365 – including Email Manager, Office Connect, and Content Manager – at a large wealth management firm even more incredible: the solution has been adopted by 100% of their team. Defying the odds, the firm credits Colligo’s easy-to-use, intuitive products that work seamlessly with Microsoft 365 for this feat.
As an Investment Professional at this leading Canadian asset manager put it, “Colligo has allowed us to improve team collaboration and increase individual team member accountability. We wish we found Colligo several years ago!” Read the full case study.
