Investing in people and performance tech, the LACE-way

Investing in new tech is never a simple choice. All sorts of factors, many existing outside the technology itself, will have an impact on whether it’s viable for you. There’s a bigger picture, and if you can’t see it, you’re putting your business at risk.

Here’s our take on what else matters, from selecting the best implementation partners, to brushing up on your agile expertise, and getting your people primed for change.

1. Find your match

Without the right implementation partner, boosting your business’s tech is fraught with risk. At LACE, we’ve guided and managed some of the largest HR projects in Europe, and we have close, ongoing relationships with the best implementation partners in the market.

Take Workday, for example. We’re proud to be a formal advisory partner, which means we get early insights into new releases and product demos to better inform your decisions.

We’ll stop at nothing to find the right fit for you. We help businesses like yours understand the full range of options and opportunities open to them, sharing independent, expert advice along the way.

Unlike some consultancies, we’re never about the ‘sell, sell, sell’. Our advice is always honest, well considered, and designed to truly solve your problems. That’s how we, and you, will thrive.

2. Don’t go agile alone

There’s plenty of talk about ‘agile’ methodologies. But agile isn’t something you can buy into overnight. It’s about working quickly and collaboratively, making smart decisions and taking action.

To get it right (which means right for your organisation and your industry), you need a dedicated confidant and coach who knows HR and Finance intimately. That’s us.

We’re seasoned veterans, and we’re constantly evolving and enhancing our approaches in step with the latest advancements. We steer you through the entire transformation process, bringing you confidence, peace of mind and impressive results.

3. Get your people on side

We’ll let you in on a secret: tech is as much about sentiment as it is about systems. When you’re driving innovation, you need to be thinking about the many and varied ways in which people and programmes come together. That magical meeting point.

We help you make sure you’re always putting people first, from developing user-centric systems, to educating and inspiring your people about the changes to come.

And we encourage you to consider people from day one, discovering what they need and what drives them, and preparing your messages for testing as soon as possible.

When you engage stakeholders and employees early and empathetically, you’ll have people who are ready for – and excited by – your business’s new tech.

Our tech services are deep and wide, just as they should be. If you’re looking for someone to steer you through the complexity and make sure your tech investment goes the distance, get in touch.
