PHASE 5: CUSTOMER ONBOARDING

During the initial onboarding period, properly introduce new customers and users to your products so they truly view it as the solution they purchased that can achieve their desired business outcomes.

 

Customers who are successfully onboarded have increased utilization, value realization and satisfaction. This makes them more likely to be retained, and to earn you the right to discuss up-sell and cross-sell opportunities. Successful onboarding is the #1 factor in ensuring that customers achieve their desired outcomes from your product.
