Getting started

Onboarding Officer will arrange a project initiation meeting, completing a client checklist from which they will produce a project plan that is specific for each client and takes into consideration any anomalies which could impact the delivery timeframes, amending the project plan accordingly. The project plan will be maintained by the Onboarding Officer and will be reviewed weekly. Training and support is provided as required in order to access any systems systems. Cantium will provide you with a standard template for easy data collection and migration. We will undertake to upload this template and will then validate and check once the upload has been completed.
