Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
We usually suggest a workshop which allows a design phase, along with user story building.
Once the stories have been agreed, the design and development is progressed, in an agile method (typically over 6 weeks).
Then once it is migrated via Update Sets to Test and then Production, it is ready to use.
A handover via teleconference, and documentation is supplied, along with the ability to contact us directly for support and advice when required. The latter part being part of the support package.

End-of-contract data extraction
The data will exist on the customer's ServiceNow instance, so there is nothing to extract.
The service is often provided as a one off cost, so there isn't an end date to the contract in this circumstance.
However, there is a subscription in model in place which allows customers to break down the cost into management monthly amounts.
End-of-contract process
The initial cost involves end to end deployment of a Service Portal (or other widgets) in the customer's ServiceNow instance.
This involves a requirements gathering workshop, where designs, and user stories are decided and agreed on.
Approx 2 weeks design phase
Approx 4 weeks of agile development including testing and deployment of the Service Portal.
Handover teleconferences, and documentation as also supplied.
Further customisations are possible and extra hours of development time can be purchased using Monochrome's rate card.
A Support package is also available to provide support through two ServiceNow version upgrades (ServiceNow recommend two upgrades per year), as well as day to day support for issues or further training.
