Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started Once agreement to proceed has been reached, our Project Management teams will work with your teams to scope out the system. This will involve every person who forms part of the steering group. For the ATS, this may include marketing, recruitment, HR, resourcing, IT, security, operations and L&D.
Throughout the entire process, we work together to build the front facing website and the system, liaising though weekly calls and monthly meetings where possible. Our Project Managers are on hand to ensure the smooth flow of the project and will act as a direct contact between our designers, developers, asset collection, copywriting, accounts and integrations teams.
Once the project is complete, full onsite and web based training sessions are delivered along with an agreed SLA (where needed) and at least quarterly updates and reviews. We can also provide user documentation to assist with ongoing support alongside our helpdesk.

The control panel is customisable to suit the needs of the business, in the form of mapping in the processes; workflows, vacancy templates, contracts, assessments, hierarchy, locations, sectors, grades and more, which is all pertinent to the client. It is not however, brand-able from a control panel (back-office perspective)

The customisation is set up initially by our team (building the website, setting up the system etc) but ongoing access in order to edit, update and upload new documentation can also be given to the client.
