Best Practices to Rally CRM User Adoption

User adoption is a perennial challenge with CRM software deployments. Slow or low user adoption is a top cited contributing factor to CRM engagements that fail to achieve their objectives, or just fail outright.

In my experience, too many executives see the signs of slow adoption, but naively believe that the users will ultimately come around. In fact, the opposite is more likely. The longer it takes to achieve acceptance, the more probable the CRM software will fail to become sustainable.

I’d like to say that there are 2 or 3 things to do in order to achieve CRM adoption. But it’s just not that simple.

Here are 12 CRM best practices designed to mitigate CRM user adoption challenges.

1. Begin with strategy

2. Leverage a solid plan

3. Assemble the right team

4. Early and broad user participation

5. Voice of the customer

6. Process improvements

7. System design

8. User training

9. Consider change management

10. Measure adoption

11. Disciplined project management

12. Risk management
