Ground Rules

The full process typically takes 8-10 weeks from start to finish. A couple of notes:

  • Each review cycle is open for one week
  • All deliverables will be deployed to, and available on your private portal
  • This package does not include installation or configuration of software, content, or package deliverables on your server. Additional assistance is available with Service Punchcards.

The Employee Communications Strategy Package process and Service Punchcard requests and tracking will be supported with your private portal on our servers, which includes up to three user accounts. Your portal will be maintained for one year after completion of last service package or punchcard. User accounts inactive for six months will be automatically disabled (simply contact us to reactivate).

Exclusions

To make the Employee Communications Strategy Package as cost-effective as possible, the process is tightly defined (see above). If needed, additional assistance is available through Service Punchcards for the following items that are not included:

  • Graphic design
  • Information design (defining spaces, permissions, etc., also called "information architecture")
  • Content creation, editing, or migration
  • Identity/Brand Material build out (color palette and logos, for example)
  • Training
  • Work performed on your servers (for example: installing/configuring the deliverables, VPN and user account setup, reviewing content, add-on installation, troubleshooting, etc.)

Extras

Sometimes the unexpected happens, and changes to the above process are needed. Here are common variations we've encountered and their associated costs:

  • Change Confluence version after sign off (half a Service Punchcard)
  • Additional review cycle (one Service Punchcard)
  • Additional year of maintaining your portal (half a Service Punchcard)
  • Additional user account to your portal (half a Service Punchcard per year)
