Xmas at Userlane Day Sixteen

Day Sixteen: A Christmas Outlook


Santa decides to modernize things to enjoy some free time.
He leaves his Head Elf Bernard in charge of implementing new automation at the North Pole….But changing well-established processes is not that easy.

Santa's Happily Hiking

Meanwhile at the North Pole

Bernard takes Santa’s advice and finds a Christmas Adoption Platform (XAP) that works with the Christmas Resource Planning (XRP) solution.
Based on his research, he believes that this solution will bring more clarity to the Christmas Resource Planning (XRP) tool.
The elves caught word on what Bernard was up to and started to worry. How could another software possibly help them at this point?!

Bernard quickly addressed the elves in their weekly meeting.

“Everyone, I know that the Christmas Adoption Platform will help us. Let me explain what the XAP will do.
First, imagine all of the times when you were sitting there at your workstation and trying to figure out how to complete your tasks in the XRP.

What did you do? Maybe you asked Sheldon (the brainiest elf) to come by and show you how to do it? Or maybe you tried to find the information elsewhere, like on Elfapedia? Well, now you won’t have to do any of that! The answers are right there in the XRP! Check it out and see for yourself!”

Santa's Reply to Bernard

Dear Bernard,

Today I hiked out to Taft Point in Yosemite National Park and couldn’t believe the amazing landscape! There was no one there which was good, because I usually like to keep a low profile around the holidays. I left our North Pole flag there, what do you think?

I heard through the grapevine that the elves have already begun to use the XAP and that it has already been helping them tremendously! They are calling it the “Sheldon Solution” because it is just like having him right there next to them showing them how to do everything.

I am curious to hear how you were able to create the guides so fast? What did you do to make this so accessible so quickly?

Great work!
