Case Study 

Employee UX analytics help Tate & Lyle identify employee adoption issues and reduce user errors by nearly 50% application investment.

About Tate & Lyle

Tate & Lyle PLC is a ~4,000 employee supplier of food and beverage ingredients to industrial markets. The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange. Their customers include many of the world’s largest food and beverage manufacturers, and industrial and pharmaceutical companies.

The Challenge 

Tate & Lyle were dealing with limited objective measurement of Cloud ERP application and business processes adoption. They suffered from insufficient data related to adoption roadblocks, including application performance from the user perspective, and system and user errors. Therefore, they were not able to identify areas where users could benefit from targeted training.

Working with Knoa 

The enterprise onboarded Knoa’s User Experience Management solution to detect and correct user errors, optimize training programs and reach healthy adoption rates.  

Knoa’s in-depth user level employee analytics allowed Tate & Lyle to visualise real data and instantly identify the most acute user errors and work flows that must be improved through dedicated training programs.

In their own words:

“We use Lean Six Sigma as a methodology for continuous improvement. This method relies heavily on data points. Knoa provides defining data to the problem, base-lines of time spend, defects (errors) and impact volumes when in our Define stage. It helps us measure the problem as it relates to our process. We analyze outliers, process capability and root cause. We also use Knoa to ensure improvement efforts have been controlled.”


In the image below, data shows the drop in user errors in the month after the training delivery:

Business results included: 

  • Improved process performance. To gain an understanding of labor intensive processes, the Global Support team used Knoa to track processes and workflows, making it easier to identify improvements.
  • Improved training efficiency. Training materials were revised to reflect the correct process steps for creating purchase requisitions, resulting in a sharp drop in user errors and increase in user productivity.

Improved user support. The Global Support uses data presented by Knoa to isolate transaction codes with slow performance for the users, in order to proactively address the issues before users call the help desk.
