The importance of effective onboarding

Updated: May 31, 2023

Effective onboarding is crucial for any new technology platform and low-code platforms are no exception. We outline the main reasons here.

Swift adoption
Onboarding accelerates platform adoption and user engagement. By providing training, documentation, and support, new users can quickly familiarise themselves with the platform's interface and functionalities.

No programming requirements
A low -code platform is designed to simplify and speed up the development process without requiring any programming knowledge. Through onboarding, a user with minimal technical skills can get started with the platform and quickly exploit its capabilities.

Good onboarding ensures a more efficient use of the platform. Users can more easily find their way around the platform, understand features and capabilities more quickly, and work more efficiently. A good onboarding is thus conducive to increased productivity, as well as to the effectiveness of the development process.

Lower entry barrier
Onboarding simplifies the development process, which can motivate users to experiment more with the platform’s features and develop new ideas. This could result in higher levels of innovation and creativity.

User experience
Onboarding can help optimise user experience. For example, a well-designed onboarding process takes into account users' different levels of experience and expertise, allowing them to use the platform in a more intuitive way.

Onboarding is a crucial step in ensuring the adoption of any new technology platform. It is however especially important for the adoption of low-code platforms, precisely because these platforms are meant to support the simplification of development processes. Onboarding lowers entry barriers and encourages innovation by allowing new users to get started with the platform quickly and work more efficiently. Spheeres pays structural attention to onboarding.
