Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
Getting started is simple and straightforward:

As an Admin user you will receive an email with a link to the Admin Portal and your own unique password.

When you follow the link you will be prompted to enter your email address and unique password.

You will then be prompted to change your password and log in to the Admin Portal with your new credentials.

Once logged in successfully you will be presented with the Admin Portal dashboard. From here you can add more Admin users, begin adding and managing App users, access App users’ calendars, and update information on hospital WiFi codes for App users.

We will offer an online demonstration, written instructions, and phone support however the admin portal has been designed to be intuitive and easy to use.

Independence of resources
We utilise AWS infrastructure so that we can quickly and easily scale to meet the demands of our users. We monitor server load via our status servers and can make on demand changes.

The Xploro API is a monolithic application and we are currently in the process of developing smaller services so that we can scale individual parts of the application to meet need as well.
