Epilogue Systems

You’ve heard the refrain, “you can’t improve what you can’t measure,” and it’s true. Especially, when it comes to software onboarding. Without specific goals and metrics to tell you how things are progressing, you will be unable to improve your user adoption rates.

Epilogue Systems

Getting employees up to speed on new work processes takes time. In the case of onboarding new hires, it typically takes up to eight months before an employee is competent enough to reach full productivity , according to Harvard Business Review.

How a Performance Support System Can Boost Employee Productivity

Epilogue Systems

It’s been two months since you trained on a new software solution and now you can’t recall how to enter vendor invoices. Given that most people will forget 77 percent of newly learned skills and content in six days, it’s no surprise you can’t remember two months later.
