1. First Impressions Count: The onboarding experience sets the tone for new users’ initial impressions of their new company. An intuitive and timely onboarding process creates positive first impressions and allows the new hire to access systems and resources quickly.

2. Accelerate Time to Productivity: Accurate and expedited user onboarding speeds up the time necessary for new people to get off to a good start. By setting up new users with necessary software, logins, and access, the transition from their first day on the job to productive output is minimized.

3. Reduced Turnover: Complex and cumbersome onboarding experiences lead to user frustration and turnover. Streamlining the onboarding process increases new user happiness at their new role, and reduces the possibility of negative sentiment, or even quickly lost hires.

4. Business Process Adoption: Comprehensive onboarding facilitates quick user understanding and adoption of business processes. By providing appropriate access, computers, software, policies, and e-learning, businesses will empower their new hires.

5. Data Driven Insights: Intelligent user onboarding solutions allows businesses to compile valuable data and insights into behaviors, preferences, and pain points. By analyzing insights, businesses can improve and streamline their onboarding workflow and user experiences..

6. Competitive Advantages: Delivering excellent user onboarding experiences sets businesses apart from competitors. By prioritizing a user-centric approach, businesses differentiate themselves to attract and retain high quality hires.

The Challenges of Traditional User Onboarding Methods

Most businesses struggle to deliver an optimal experience due to a multitude of challenges:

  • Manual Processes: Traditional onboarding methods often rely on manual configurations, which are different and inaccurate in one way or another every time. Often onboarding includes extraneous back and forth with the IT department and a lot of errors and delays. Some mistakes lead to unintentional access to the wrong resources, or critical mistakes.
  • Lack of Personalization: One size fits all onboarding approaches fail to account for the individual needs and preferences of each user.
  • Reduced Scalability: As businesses scale, traditional onboarding methods become increasingly inefficient to manage, and develop into a major pain point.
  • Poor User Engagement: Unhelpful or non-existent onboarding process control fails to engage users, leading to diminished retention rates.
  • Insufficient Training: Inadequate training and support during the onboarding process leaves users unproductive in their new role, leading to frustration from both the new hire and the business that hired them.
