Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started Throughout the process, a named Project Manager will be assigned to each client to manage the implementation process in line with PRINCE2 methodology. This will follow an initial meeting with the client, the Britannic Project Manager and the Britannic Account Manager. As part of the project initiation a brief questionnaire will be completed that captures all key information relating to the DTMF masking solution and the client environment. A period of User Acceptance Testing will commence for an agreed period of up to seven (7) business days period. Once live, the service will go through the Early Life Support and then to the Operations team for Business as Usual support in line with the agreed SLAs.
Onsite training, online training and user documentation will be provided.

There are no financial penalties or costs to terminate contract at end of agreed term or extend beyond initial term, commencing a new term, which triggers monthly service charge and transactions charges accordingly.

The service offered has unrestricted scalability, so whether on a few SIP channels or thousands, we can accommodate all without impacting on demand.
For clients wishing to use their own SIP services in conjunction with the Britannic DTMF masking solution, direct interconnects will be provided with sufficient headroom to allow for growth.
For ease of access, clients wishing to bring their own trunks (BYOT) are readily accommodated, with no need to terminate, parallel or introduce further costs on new SIP services
