Millennials particularly are used to technology which simplifies their lives not makes it more complicated. Key to achieving this in the corporate context is making sure that systems talk to each other. If they don’t the user has to jump between systems, re-keying data, which is bad for the users and also means that the company doesn’t have a clear picture of the total spend.
Employees need time to train on new systems. This is, from the company perspective, non-productive time as it takes them away from their revenue generating activities. Having systems that minimise this effect, for example by using a single-sign-on instead of requiring users to remember one more login/password, help keep everyone focused on what is really important.
