We have some exciting news to share: we have the honor of receiving a 2017 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Award!

With Adoptify, we’ve helped companies change their overall operating model with a series of system and business process implementations. Thanks to team-based competitive challenges, employees are fully engaged as they learn new knowledge and skills and align to organizational readiness.

Adoptify has also helped companies implement a suite of new technology systems to bring the organization up to speed across varying business units. By allowing leadership to capture real-time data, they can predict where adoption may be lacking and address it quickly. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Adoptify makes change fun for employees with rewards and incentives that recognize early adopters, teamwork, and collaboration.

Why did we develop Adoptify?

When people are asked to learn—whether that’s learning (or relearning) a new skill, behavior, attitude, or way of doing things—they are being asked to make a change. And change is hard.

For organizations trying to shift the way people think, behave, and accomplish their work, change is a daunting task. Organizations must inspire their people to follow a new way of doing things while also mitigating their personal stress. This effort requires significant, intentional design. Success hinges on effective communications and training, but no matter how awesome those materials are, it’s still a struggle to get employees to engage with them.

Caitlin Robie, Senior Solutions Consultant and Adoptify Lead, shares that there’s a snowball effect at play. “Organizations want their change to win the hearts and minds of their people. They want to ignite a desire to participate. The more that their people are actively engaged in it, the more they’ll encourage peers to join in.”

In other words, making change something that’s fun and inviting drives participation, which increases everyone’s readiness. And all of that directly impacts the success of an organization’s project—and their business.

So, how do organizations get people to want to do what they have to do? To help organizations capitalize on this snowball effect, TiER1 created Adoptify to be a gamified adoption platform that makes it easy for people to engage in the change and develop the readiness they need.

From Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program: “Human capital management is evolving faster than at any time in its history, and it is powered by innovative technology developed and implemented by organizations big and small. The technology innovators who won Excellence Awards this year were focused on providing users with a better overall experience.”
