Async. Setup Questionnaire

Created by Quentin SINIG, Modified on Mon, 24 Jul 2023 at 10:55 AM by Quentin SINIG

We have compiled a comprehensive set of 23 questions to help you successfully onboard your new customers. We know that onboarding can be a daunting task, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you. This tool is a valuable resource that will help you direct your focus toward the appropriate inquiries at each stage of your project (kick-off, setup, development & testing, live, etc.).

It is important to note that there is no need to rush through each point immediately. Take the time to acknowledge each question and revisit it later whenever you need to evaluate your progress and accomplishments. We understand that every customer is different, so we encourage you to use this tool flexibly and adapt it to your specific needs.

We are here to help you every step of the way. If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We want to make sure that you are successful in onboarding your new customers, and we are committed to providing you with the resources and support you need.

We humbly acknowledge that this is just the beginning of the existence of this tool. We will continue to improve it along the way as we collect feedback from other customers. We appreciate your help in making this tool the best it can be.
