IT COMMUNICATIONS

Successful software implementations and other IT projects rely on effective internal IT communication to align IT departments, business leadership, and end users to the vision of the project and the value it’s creating, to drive enablement and user adoption, and to ultimately deliver exceptional results.

 

IS THIS YOU?

  • I need to drive adoption to achieve long-term success but don’t know how
  • I've tried several times to explain the value of my software to the organization but they still don't fully understand it
  • I don’t have communications experts in-house or the time to put IT communications together
  • Intact Technology - 100% Risk-FreeI don’t have a plan to effectively communicate my project

We can help.

DRIVE END USER ADOPTION TO CREATE VALUE

Proactive communications before, during, and after IT projects keep staff informed, manage expectations, minimize frustration, and build trust in your IT team. As a result, employees will be less resistant to change and more likely to adopt your new software. By planning ahead and staying organized with a thoughtful IT communications plan, you will:

 

  • Generate trust and buy-in from executives and end users
  • Build enthusiasm around the vision of a project and expected outcomes
  • Streamline implementation of new software and IT processes
  • Communicate wins and produced value to individuals and the organization
  • Provide project status updates to keep stakeholders informed
  • Improve end user experience and build trust with the organization
  • Enable and train power-users to drive end user adoption
  • Maximize staff productivity by removing obstacles related to new IT services or systems

Customers trust our experienced, thoughtful, and savvy IT communications team to deliver critical internal communications to CIOs and other executives, plus targeted end user groups.

“The benefits of holding an open house like this were more impactful than I would have guessed. The communications products you created, including the signage, takeaway sheets, digital messaging and terrific training videos, are second to none. And the fact that you updated the characters in the video to meet our HR/Communications guidelines on the fly was impressive. I also liked how you cajoled passersby into the event all day.”

– Steve K., Project Manager at a Global Automotive Retailer
