client onboarding processThe client intake process (or “client onboarding process”) is critical to ensuring smooth onboarding for client projects and to ultimately ensure ongoing success.

What is a “Client Intake Process?”

The intake process sets the foundation for the ongoing relationship between the client and the vendor. It is the critical step where client and project information is collected for use throughout a project lifecycle.

Intake Form

The process usually begins with an information form being completed either by the client or the vendor. The information may include:

  • Client point of contact details
  • Additional client contacts information
  • Executive sponsor
  • Project description/executive summary
  • Project start and end dates
  • Deliverable confirmation
  • Billing information

In some cases, the client intake form may be completed directly by the client in an online portal. In other cases a staff member at the vendor may be completing the form, in which case, additional internal information may be captured up front, including:

  • Cost estimates
  • Hours estimates
  • Project type
  • Project group
  • Channel director
  • Product owner

Intake Routing

Depending on the complexity of the client intake process and the size of the teams involved, there may be more to the routing of collected information than simple populating a CRM or ERP system. There may be additional reviews, intake forms, approvals, etc. that need to be deployed internally to ensure a smooth rollout.

Below is an example of one client intake process routing flow. Note the approvals and hand-offs have been automated to ensure compliant and consistent workflow.
