We’re working in strange and unprecedented times at the moment. At Re-flow we’re lucky enough to be able to operate all of our services as normal from home. Similarly, we’ve also seen new clients approach us looking for solutions to help them with work from home and social distancing in the field, while still supporting full information exchange, collaboration and reporting. This week we signed up and onboarded a new customer in just 2 days. Check out how we did it!
At Re-flow, the onboarding process isn’t about just showing our customers how to use their software, it’s supporting them in configuring their own perfect set-up and the taking them to the first success point. The first success is where a customer is actually using the software in the way that suits their business, using their own forms and terminology.
Other companies that leave their new customers to it are also setting themselves up to flop, because failing to take your customers from the software introduction to the first point of success means there’s a much higher risk of customers abandoning the product because they’re lost, don’t understand something, don’t get the expected value from the product, and then simply lose interest. When this happens, it’s all been a huge waste of time, effort and money. In short, everyone loses.

Our latest client, a Civils, Transport & Highways Consultancy working across all types of construction projects has grown steadily over the years and diversified, attracting a wide range of clients from both public and private sectors.
During the current Covid-19 outbreak, they have implemented new methods to ensure they protect their staff and provide safe working practices, while still being able to serve their customers at this difficult time. All their staff are able to work from home, with the exception of the required on site for essential works, who are only authorised to work once the risk of undertaking site visits has been robustly assessed on a case-by-case basis, also by prohibiting face-to-face meetings, ensuring social distancing is adhered to, and precautions taken to prevent the spread of infection.
Re-flow software helps and supports these working practices by fully enabling workflow control, uploading and reporting form a desktop dashboard, eliminating the need for anyone to physically send or receive any paperwork. In the field the app on each users’ smartphone means they can fill out any forms, reports and inspections using their own device, and communicate information, photos and calculations digitally, eliminating the need for person to person interaction, all time, date and geo stamped for a robust audit trail.
Ashley from the Re-flow Support team commented: “The turnaround was quick as the client reviewed all the orientation and training videos and understood the system. They had a clear idea of what they wanted to achieve with an initial set up, and how they wanted to utilise scheduling. We were able to deal with their requests quickly as they understood the parameters of the software and how to take advantage of the strength of the software.”
In keeping with the speed of the set-up, the thanks from the client was equally quickly sent and received. “Thanks. And Thank you for your support in general, very pleased we are up and live today! I have been asking a lot of you and it is appreciated! Cheers"
