These 3 Ideas Will Really Hook Your Enterprise Application with the Users
User adoption, that’s the toughest problem for many organizations. Developers keeps on building applications for months as requested by the clients, only to see low adoption rates at the end of the development cycle.
Is it possible for your business to address this problem? How can developers deliver enterprise applications that can hook your users till the end?
We know how frustrating is the user’s adoption, and sometimes it fails to make sense. The process, in general, goes like this one –
• users request a solution
• development team gathers requirements
• spends a month in finding out a solution
• delivering an application that fits the specifications particularly
And then the same users who requested it abstain herself or himself from using it. Just think of all the hours spent to build those enterprise applications, no matter whether it is for the mobile or the web.
Here are 3 awesome tips to create the web and mobile applications with which users will hook up till the end –
1. The Squeaky Wheel Rule
Sometimes it might feel that everyone requested an application, but few people use it once the whole thing is complete. Why did this happen? Maybe everyone was not asking for it. The first step to creating the web and mobile applications is to understand who is asking, and perhaps more important who is not asking for it.
In every organization who ask to develop enterprise applications, you will find squeaky wheels who make far more requests that the average users. The problems lie in the core where we find the impression that the majority of the users want solution when in reality you have handful users to make all the noise.
2. Important to Recognize the Target Users
With some projects, the web and mobile app developers follow the specific rules mentioned in the documents. They deliver a solution that perfectly fits the requirements. Sometimes it is a simple problem that when a non-users create a requirement on behalf of the users in his or her department, maybe they were not designed by the primary user. If you are after the creation of an application that users will exclusively adopt, then you must first identify, and speak to the primary users. The problem many app developers run into while creating web and mobile applications is that every aspect of design, from the feature set to the user interface and is designed keeping parity in the buyer’s mind.
In many cases, it is seen that the buyers are not primary. When it comes to the end user product they are often feeling as though they are carrying out an additional task on top of their workload. This web and mobile application offer the user with no additional benefits so the engagement remains all-time low.
3. Understand User’s Need
The primary stumbling blocks in any type of development project are the communication. Various goals, needs and expectations of the project are not clearly explained before the development phase takes a start off. Sometimes the users expect that the developers should see through their minds. Other times the developers assume they understand the requirements and believes that they can offer a solution better than the users has presumed. Since all developers understand the potential capabilities of an application better than users.
Hope these three tips are exciting enough to user adoption, but the list is certainly much longer than this one.
