In the realm of SaaS B2B businesses, success relies on the foundational notes of implementation and onboarding. A study from 2020 by MarbleFlows indicate that 86% of customers claimed that they would be more likely to stay loyal to a business that invests in onboarding content that welcomes and educates them after the purchase. This emphasizes the pivotal role of a well-executed implementation process. As we delve into the mechanics of SaaS implementation, let's explore the science behind it and uncover essential best practices.


Scientific Background: The Weight of First Impressions

In 2020, more than a half of people said they’ve returned a product because they didn’t fully understand how to use it, according to Wyzowls Report. This data underscores the critical role of the implementation and onboarding phase in not only attracting but even more importantly retaining loyal customers. So what is key for a great onboarding and implementation experience?


Best Practices: Navigating the Implementation and Onboarding Landscape

Do's:

  1. Personalize the Journey: Tailor the onboarding experience to the specific needs and objectives of each customer. Personalization accelerates the time-to-value ratio.

  2. Proactive Communication: Establish transparent communication from the beginning. Regular updates and proactive issue resolution build trust and confidence.

  3. Educate Strategically: Empower customers with the knowledge needed to derive maximum value. Strategic education sessions during onboarding foster self-sufficiency.

  4. Measure success: Quantify success and measure it against predefined KPIs, such as time to value, customer satisfaction etc.

Don'ts:

  1. Assume One Size Fits All: Avoid a generic approach. Tailor onboarding to individual customer preferences and goals. depending on their segmentation.

  2. Overwhelm with Information: While education is crucial, avoid overwhelming customers with too much information too soon. Gradual, targeted learning is more effective.

  3. Neglect Post-Onboarding Support: Onboarding is not a one-time event. Neglecting ongoing support post-implementation can lead to customer frustration and potential churn.

  4. Skip customer Feedback: It is crucial to interact with your customers in order to hear their feedback, needs and wishes, which helps to improve your processes and the customer experience.
