Every Jobtrain solution is different and is configured to fully support the client's existing process.
All clients are assigned a dedicated Client Success Manager.
The Client Success Manager works actively to advise on the ongoing refinement of the solution, helping our clients gain the most from Jobtrain, and introducing standard upgrades/ new functionality. Quarterly account review meetings with your Client Success Manager are also offered at no additional cost, along with access to our client community.

Support is offered through email, telephone and an online help guide.

All critical technical support is 24/7 at no additional cost for clients outside of office hours.

Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started All clients are assigned a dedicated Implementation Manager and Client Success Manager. The Client Success Manager will work with customers throughout their partnership with us.

At the outset of the relationship, we hold scoping and discovery sessions onsite with clients to understand their needs, processes, aims and objectives. We then guide them through the process of fully scoping the solution and mapping it against their processes. Once we've gathered all set up information, we complete all aspects of configuration of Jobtrain for clients before inviting clients to user acceptance testing.

Before the system is made live, we hold onsite training sessions with HR users and Super Users. The Jobtrain trainer will be your Implementation Manager who will have implemented many applicant tracking systems and trained many users before.

A fully searchable online help guide is available to all users via a help guide link within Jobtrain, with optional e-learning packages should a client wish.

Independence of resources Jobtrain uses burstable high bandwidth internet connectivity and would usually operate at 20% of its total capacity. The Internet connectivity can easily accommodate any increases of bandwidth in the future and is capable of dealing with the most demanding requirements, including streaming of media content.
Virtual Platform: Jobtrain uses virtual platforms which provide us with both flexibility where resource can be added on demand (this ensures the solution operates at a constant capacity of no more than 60%), and increased availability as the virtual platform is built on fault tolerant and resilient technology.


Service usage metrics Yes
Metrics types Reports can be generated on a per client basis and include areas such as date ranges and query categories i.e. client query, candidate query, system area, who the request was raised by, time to resolve, first time resolution etc. Typically we will provide service updates per quarter at client review meetings. Reports will include candidate volumes versus queries raised and average time to resolve queries. We will also feed back to the client’s Jobtrain Client Success Manager any training issues we have identified from our support team.

Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability As used herein, the term "Service Availability" means the percentage of a particular month (based on 24-hour days and an assumed 30-day month) that access to the hosted Jobtrain solution and client/candidate data is available.

Jobtrain will use commercial best efforts to provide clients with 99.9% service availability relating to its hosting. Service Availability is calculated by the number of hours the service is available to clients plus the total number of hours, if any, the service is scheduled to be unavailable, divided by the total number of hours in that month.

If the Service Availability is less than 99.9%, Jobtrain will issue a credit in accordance with the following schedule, with the credit being calculated on the basis of the monthly licence fee for the affected solution:

99.9 to 100% service availability - 0% refund
98% to 99.8% service availability - 10% refund
95% to 97.9% service availability - 25% refund
90% to 94.9% service availability - 50% refund
89.9% or below service availability - 100% refund
Approach to resilience Available on request.
