The previous platform that TFA used was too complex for their many teams to use without in-depth training. As a result, they found that many of their users were making mistakes or running into dead ends within their previous solution.

The result was that regional team members felt discouraged from using the product, while everyone involved felt that they were spending too much time on the process of managing events.
