Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
We approach the onboarding process with an initial phase of discovery, to familiarise ourselves with your systems, strategies and business objectives, followed by a full technical analysis of your Umbraco CMS, Sitecore CMS or Dynamics CRM. For existing systems support our discovery sessions consist of a review of your systems, strategies, people and objectives. Our technical review will cover architecture, performance and security and will include a detailed report outlining findings with prioritised recommendations. For new deployments a robust phase of discovery is conducted that results in a detailed project requirement document and defined scope before engaging with us on the full project process.
