Since PeopleMatter is a web-based system, its implementation process is shorter than an on-premise solution.

Its standard implementation process is as follows:

  • Settings training – Webinar that provides training for the client to configure PeopleMatter settings
  • Workflow review session – During the course of two sessions, PeopleMatter and the client review and finalize configurations.
  • Primary admin training – This is a training webinar intended for a client’s corporate HR and project team.
  • Front line manager training – This training is intended for a client’s front line managers.
  • Post go-live check-in – The implementation process is wrapped up and transitions to PeopleMatter customer support team.
