From the beginning, from in terms of onboarding for Unifize it was pretty flawless.



00:04 - 00:11
We looked at all the people that needed access. We determined that on a matrix that was done before Unifize came in.



00:11 - 00:16
So by the time we decided to go with Unifize, so we knew exactly who needed access and what point.



00:16 - 00:40
So the onboarding was pretty easy once we provided the data that we needed and who needed access to what within Unifize, we were able to upload the users into Unifize pretty easily, and once they had access, they were sent a link onto their mobile devices, onto their computers and laptops and everything else that Unifize as access to, and they were able to log it.



00:40 - 00:48
And just like that, they were able to get into Unifize and be able to see all the information they were involved in.



00:48 - 00:58
The one thing that I really like to stress is because of one way of logging in the system really allows you to have the same access in multiple platforms.



00:58 - 01:04
That is very nice to have. You're not limited to just having the company laptop.



01:04 - 01:18
You can also link your phone, you can also link your tablet. You can also link to everything else, just like we all of these media, social media applications. The same thing I have Unifize as an app on my phone.



01:18 - 01:25
And you received those notices just like you're sitting on your desk. That is pretty nice to have.

But what we've known from what I experience was, is we were able to get there with the system. We still there with the system. The system has what is needed to provide us what we're looking for, because every company, admittedly, is trying to get compliant. If we educate people, if we get people the education that they need and to get over the fear factor, I think 90% of those things can be resolved because most people will go to what they're most familiar with.What I worked with from a different company, but they're not willing to sit down and look at what the demographics are saying. People are into social media now. People are moving fast into fast paced world. But technologies are still antiquated. So there's a disconnect here, right? So while we're moving at a fast pace at home with dragging at work, so why can't we continue that speed while we at work?If your supplier has issues and you're not informed on time, you want to have an alternate supplier in place. If your suppliers are not qualified, you may not know that that needs to happen. And so when you have an integrated system that speaks to itself and is giving you all this data, you literally have the pulse of the organization in your hands as an executive at a money bound access.
