Cross-User Group Sessions | Leadership | User Adoption
Format: Member Showcase
You’ve chosen Dynamics - Now what? User adoption and acceptance are key to successful implementation, amazing customer and user experience, and ultimately - improved financial results. We know that user engagement will drive the success of Dynamics and we also know that the top reason CRM projects fail is lack of adoption. So how do we lead our teams through the change and ensure that they actually use it? In this session, we will discuss some steps to take Before, During, and After the launch to make the transition to Dynamics successful.
CRM Project Lead Manager
Synergy Credit Union
I am proud to have been part of the Credit Union system since 2001 serving in various roles, such as; Business Credit Analyst, Contact Centre Representative, Contact Centre Supervisor, Contact Centre Manager, and currently as Synergy Credit Union’s CRM Project Lead Manager.
This new position was developed in order to bring Dynamics to our organization. This new opportunity allowed me to work with our system partners as well as a group of internal users to customize and develop the best possible product for our teams. Following the launch of Dynamics, my role shifted to that of the CRM Admin and Coach. Now my key focus is User Acceptance and Adoption – communicating our overall vision, understanding our user’s expectations as well as coaching. I absolutely love what I do and look forward to connecting with, learning from, and sharing with others!
2016 was my first year attending the Summit and the experience far exceeded my expectations. I look forward to attending this year’s event in Nashville, knowing I will be sure to meet many like-minded individuals as well as the knowledge and expertise I will obtain through networking opportunities.
