Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Bespoke solutions dependent on customer needs/requirements clarified by collaborative customer engagement.
The bespoke systems are designed to be intuitive. Based upon the users required process and collaborative design phase with DCSL. This minimises if not removes any required training. However, explicit training is sometimes desirable, for instance for a complex solution, or for a consumer service product. In these circumstances we can provide several options:
1: Training Workshops
2: Train the Trainer Sessions
3: Step by Step Guides and documentation
Service documentation
Documentation formats
End-of-contract data extraction
We provide IP ownership to the customer upon completion of software design.
End-of-contract process
We provide IP ownership upon end of software development and continued support including team-wide knowledge retention, background system maintenance, database analysis, as well as being available to your team to answer any questions you may have on the use of the software.
This is based upon a monthly fee calculated from the initial software development cost.
