Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started We find the key to successful adoption and usage of software is an outstanding on-boarding and setup service, focussed on Customer Success at every stage.

Our first stage is that of discovery, typically involving a call or meeting between your key stakeholders and our Implementation Team. Our goals are to understand your current processes and requirements, and how they can be facilitated (and if possible improved) using Compliance Centre. Our team will offer you demonstration of the service and coaching to enable you to make configuration decisions of your module and base system, such as organisational structure, users, roles and permissions. Our team will also demonstrate all self-management functions available to you, so you are aware of what you can configure.

During the second stage, we will setup and configure your service as required and work with you to iterate to meet your needs. At the end of the process, you will approve the configuration and the system will be ready to use.

We offer user training, delivered via webinar in a ‘Train the Trainer’ style. Additional training sessions (via webinar or classroom based) can be provided subject to your requirements.
Service documentation No
End-of-contract data extraction Shield Safety can provide an extract of data in a specific format in CSV at the end of the contract.
