As a Senior Account Manager here at NetDocuments, I am used to traveling. It seems like every other week I am on a flight to visit a prospect, representing NetDocuments at an event, etc. The last few weeks have been no different, but this time I had the pleasure of representing NetDocuments at the ALA Regions 4, 5 & 6 events. These ALA regional events have become one of my favorite events that NetDocuments sponsors. There are lots of reasons to love these shows, such as the small table top displays (makes shipping/set-up a breeze), the fantastic locations (Disneyland anyone?) and the great leads that we always get. However, it is the ALA members that really make it special. Most of the ALA members that attend these events are office managers, human resource managers, and even a few IT directors. Almost everybody I talked to was incredibly energetic, extremely nice, and very tech savvy. As a vendor, it is so refreshing to talk with someone who understands the value of a document management service and knows how to successfully get it implemented in their firm.

Whether you're a small firm with a few people, or part of a global company with many offices, you've likely felt the good and bad effects when new technology is purchased, implemented, or force-fed to users. The technology itself may be the perfect solution to a problem, but this doesn't always translate into user adoption, efficiency, or the increase in productivity that you'd hoped for. Why? Your answer will be different from the company across the street currently shaking with the pain of tech adoption and withdrawals from their "old way" of doing things, but in both failed scenarios, disaster could have been avoided with a few simple concepts. This post is a precursor to a formal whitepaper NetDocuments will produce. Our Professional Services Department and community of channel partners have implemented well over 1,000 firms. They have boiled it down to five key ingredients every successful tech rollout needs.
