In talking with our customers we learned that their main challenges are:
- Mirroring internal processes as closely as possible
- Ease of use
- Ensuring information is up to date
- Ad-hoc reporting, being able to quickly create custom views
- Easy collaboration
- Learning curve
We quickly realized that « User adoption » will address most of our customers’ challenges. How do you increase user adoption? There has been a shift in the work habits of new talent, The new generation focuses more on social networks and less on email; the web has become the platform of choice to share and distribute content. Even if we all feel very young, there is a new Generation of talent working in a very different way. There is no reason why using a PPM system should not be as easy as using email or Linkedin. To dramatically improve user adoption we decided to implement three major enhancements:
- New look & feel
- New customizable views
- New social collaboration platform - Genius Live!
We refreshed the look & feel, to be more user friendly, more effective and more up to date. We have collaborated with usability experts to define the new GUI. We have implemented new views to provide more flexibility. We have invented a new way to interact with your PPM tool. A new way matching today’s users’ expectations. Genius Project version 7 is certainly the most important version of the past 5 years, it is a shift! A major milestone in Genius Inside’s history.
