When you’re introducing brand new technology into your business, getting your recruiters to fully engage with the product and use it properly is vital if you want to avoid wasting your time, and even worse – your money.
But the scary thing is, more than a quarter of all software spend is reportedly wasted. That’s the equivalent of a shocking £5.7 billion a year spent on software that’s deployed within businesses but goes unused.
And this figure only considers software that goes completely unused – it doesn’t account for software that’s underutilised, which is potentially an even bigger problem! Why pay for new tech if you’re just going to continue using it do the exact same thing you’ve always done but with a new look?
What's the solution?
