Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started The following services form the basis of on-boarding a customer.
- Implementation, training & consultancy. Each of these can be delivered remotely or on-site.
- Professional services post Go-Live. Business Intelligence and analytics solutions are expected to evolve as your organisation benefits from the features of the software and the maturity in using it increases. It is therefore expected that additional professional services may be required from Perfect Image after the system has gone live. We work closely with customers to ensure your own in house service skills are met, but in some instances your team may require additional services for areas such as customisation and training.
- Ad-hoc hosting services. The hosting of your BI and analytics solutions is linked to your licensing, user numbers and capacity requirements. We work with each client to confirm the estimated cost of a complete service and is dependent on the recommended product and solution.
User documentation can be provided on request.
Service documentation No
End-of-contract data extraction Off-boarding with Perfect Image is a straightforward procedure and the customer has provided one month’s notice to cancel in writing.
Perfect Image can facilitate a copy of all data stored and then arrange to delete all data associated with your organisation. The format of the data would be agreed in advance to ensure there is a smooth transition off the service being provided.
End-of-contract process Off-Boarding
Each customer will have different requirements and Perfect Image will work closely to understand and support Off-boarding. Services to support this would be charged for on a time and materials basis.
- Data Extraction charges
The data required and associated effort will vary from one organisation to the next. The Perfect Image team will work to forecast the effort required to extract data. All work would be delivered on a time and materials basis.
- Licence charges
In the event that an organisation wishes to terminate their license, one full month’s notice must be provided in writing for SaaS solutions. A final charge will then be made for the next full month. In the case of perpetual license being deployed in the cloud, these would have been purchased in advance.
- Professional Services charges
The customer will be charged for any service provision provided during the month of the termination. All incurred expenses will also be re-charged i.e. travelling, accommodation, booking and administrative work.
