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.

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?

As a recruitment CRM provider, we know just how difficult it can be for you to get your recruiters fully on board with new technology you’ve invested in – even if you’re spending the money purely to help make their jobs easier!

Which is why we decided to create a step-by-step guide on how to introduce new technology to your business in a way that ensures everyone buys in from the very start.

Our eight-step process will help you make sure your team loves the new tech just as much as you do, and that they understand how to maximise it from day one so they can begin making you a return as soon as possible.

Step 4: Organise a launch day

Step 5: Hit the ‘wow’ moments in week one

Step 6: Empower your tech heroes

Step 7: Create your playbook

Step 8: Review and invest

Follow this process and you’ll never waste money on under-utilised technology again! To find out exactly how to roll these steps out at your business, download your free copy of the guide by clicking the button below.
