Step 1: New Client Onboarding
The first step in agency management software implementation is to complete client onboarding. At Benelinx, our standard new client onboarding includes data migration, system administration setup, communications integration and configuring any unique customizations.
Data migration, the process of transferring your book of business into the Benelinx platform, is the most critical step in implementation. Whether you’re transitioning from Excel spreadsheets or another AMS, we’ll help ensure that data migration is error-free and painless.
- Review your current data structure
- Determine export capabilities and configurations from your legacy system
- Establish mapping configurations
- Test data imports in Sandbox
- Complete final import of data into Benelinx
