Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Conn3ct will work with users to understand what ways of working is best for them, but as a preference Conn3ct see that completing on-boarding onsite is a much more efficent way of completing that process. Conn3ct will complete a full onsite discovery to fully understand the business needs and requirements and this will be followed up with showing the user how everything was built and completing train the trainer sessions. All of this will be documented and presented to the user, and also there is a online training portal that user can utilise after installation to either remind themselves of a process or to learn something new about the system.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
99.99% Service Availability
Approach to resilience
Each Five9 Data Center is designed with multiple tiers of redundant servers. The database servers, messaging servers, application servers, and web servers are implemented in clustered configurations. The telco carriers are diversified, such that if one carrier fails, the trunks are easily re-routed so that calls are perpetually completed. All hardware has redundant physical connections such as network cards and power supplies. 

In addition to the layers of redundancy within each data center, Five9 provides Geographic Redundancy that replicates customer configuration and data in real time between geographically separated data centers.
Outage reporting
Five9 automatically notifies customers of planned outages. In the event of an unplanned outage, Five9 initially contacts customers via email and phone, and continues delivering updates at regular intervals until the incident is resolved.  The customer system status portal also allows a customer to configure automatic text and email notifications of system disruptions.

During the investigative phase, the support team has resources available for immediate escalation from various internal teams. Cases are tracked using entitlements to drive SLA adherence and complete resolution, including root cause analysis as needed.
