Replacing a legacy tool and driving adoption of a new platform is never easy. Although people want to move forward and modernize, change is often scary. It’s also hard to trust something new – especially when you’ve had so much success before, and it’s something as integral to your business as data and analytics.
However, there’s a lot that can help make the process smoother and less intimidating. These learnings came through as Katlyn shared her experience working with Alloy:
- Demonstrate early wins that impact business priorities
- Work with a partner that empowers your team and delivers on promises
- Focus on the new opportunities transformation opens up

Katlyn reflected happily on a time when data-driven storytelling changed the conversation with a Walmart buyer. As a result, Walmart handed Valvoline the reins to manage orders for a new product. They quickly turned around an out-of-stock issue that was costing lost sales every week.
