Nearly half of all companies with 500+ employees are planning to
invest in onboarding or crossboarding technology this year.* But what
criteria will they or should they use? Certainly price, features, and
vendor reputation will be included in their decision-making, but
ideally an eye on user experience, implementation, and adoption should
be as well.
New technology can be exciting, with the hopes of increased
automation, greater efficiencies and ROI. With all this excitement, it
is important to consider not only what the tech is supposed to do, but
why you need it, what problem it will solve, and how it can be implemented.
In the 2023 Buying HR Technology Insights Report,
co-sponsored by Equifax, Aspect43 has identified three important
steps for you to follow and complete when buying HR technology.
These steps are designed to help you investigate and identify the
"why", “what”, and “how” in your technology buying journey
for a hopefully more successful purchase leading to better user adoption.
More than just building an ROI or business case, this step
helps you understand the "why" of your decision to buy new
technology. It helps ensure you are clear on the outcomes you want and
how they might benefit your company.
In this step, evaluating vendors should be about more than
the feature set offered and historical performance. A thorough
evaluation process should also consider the technology from the
perspective of everyone it will impact throughout the organization,
not just the recruiting or human resource teams.
This step includes choosing external partners, implementing
the technology, and digital transformation/change management. It is
important to be mindful how important the quality of the
implementation and integration experience can be to the adoption and
effectiveness of your new HR tool.

specific outcomes, goals, implementation, and adoption.
