Overcoming the Fear of Change

  1. 1. As humans, we’re all a little averse to change. It comes from our innate sense to be comfortable and feel safe. Change can bring feelings of anxiety, negative outcomes, and the possibility of real risk. WHY WE FEAR CHANGE
  2. 2. How RICS Alleviates Fear for You
  3. 3. © 2016 RICS Software 4 CONTROL FEAR: SOLUTION: We fear losing the control over how we’re managing our store. Changing your technology doesn’t mean you lose control, it’s the opposite actually. When you work with RICS, we enable you to be in control by working with you to plan a timeline, set goals and expectations, and train you before your new system goes live.
  4. 4. © 2016 RICS Software 5 COMFORT SOLUTION: Any new system may take you out of your comfort zone at first. With RICS, we’ll work with you to make sure that you feel equipped to run the system and we’re moving at a comfortable pace. Once you’re up and running, you’ll realize that this change created a better (and perhaps more comfortable) routine. FEAR: We’ve gotten comfortable in our routine.
  5. 5. © 2016 RICS Software 6 CERTAINTY SOLUTION: FEAR: We think we can’t control the outcome. The only time you can’t control an outcome of a change is when it was ill-planned. RICS will work with you to ensure you know exactly what is happening with your technology. Creating a plan and goals, and sticking to them, ensures you know exactly what you’re getting out of the change.
  6. 6. © 2016 RICS Software 7 SELF-CONFIDENCE SOLUTION: RICS was built to work for all skill levels, making it an easy transition for any retailer. We do extensive training with executives, owners, and staff to ensure you have the right education to make you feel confident in the product. We also offer continuous education, so your skills will never get rusty. FEAR: We’re afraid we might not be able to learn the new technology.
  7. 7. © 2016 RICS Software 8 TIMING SOLUTION: Changing and getting used to a new POS system can seem like a daunting task, and one that is too time consuming to take on. But the reality is, our average client is up and running within 47 days of subscribing with RICS. You can manage your business day-to-day with your old platform until you’re live with RICS, allowing you plenty of time to transition without taking away from your daily tasks. FEAR: We don’t think we have enough time to change systems.
