Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Verint would provide end user training to ensure that customers are fully enabled to take advantage of the functionality offered and features available.
Training and consulting is a blend of on-site engagements, attendance at the dedicated Verint University, leader led online and self-paced learning clips, depending on the class and agenda.

Education is based on a “train the expert” approach to ensure that expertise is built within the operation and the solution can be rolled out to new sites or departments as needed by the customer. Examples of standard training classes include:
• Survey Design and best Practices
• Campaign Mgmt Design
• Panel Management
• Reporting
• Administration.

In addition to standard training, Verint offer value added consulting services designed to optimise the processes which are supported by the tool – for example the Best Practice Review workshop focusses on benchmarking existing operational processes and identifying areas of improvement and transformation for adopting the Verint solutions.
After the implementation has been completed, users can opt into the Advice Line services for follow-up questions and “how to” as the use of the solutions mature within the operation.
User documentation and class guides are provided.

End-of-contract data extraction
Application users have full control of all data tasks and using the built in features customers are free to download their data.
End-of-contract process
At the end of the Agreement or the Access Term (the period in which the customer subscribes to the Verint SaaS Services) access to the SaaS environment will be disabled. Within 30 days of such termination or expiry, the customer may request that Verint either return or delete available customer data. Verint may provide functionality within the SaaS Services which enables the customer to download or export their data directly without requesting that Verint do this for them. In cases where functionality is not available or where the customer declines to use this functionality to 'self-serve', then Verint may provide an estimate of the professional services cost associated with returning customer data and customer may place an order for such services. At the end of this 30 day period, if the customer has not requested or actioned return or deletion, then Verint will delete all customer data.
