Pausing your implementation with Gatekeeper

To ensure the availability of resources for your project we need to plan our implementations around defined start and end dates. Should you need to pause your implementation within the agreed project timeline we are able to support one pause of up to 2 weeks. Please plan to provide the dates of any pre-planned pause time prior to the kick-off of the project.

In the unfortunate situation where you need longer than 2 weeks from the agreed project duration, we will need to place your project into ‘On hold’ mode for up to 2 months. In this event, your Implementation Consultant will be assigned to another project and we cannot guarantee they will be available when you are ready to begin your implementation project. We will need up to 4 weeks to assign the same, or a new, Implementation Consultant.

Communicating with Gatekeeper

All communication with our team will be via the approved Gatekeeper systems and channels. We regret that we are unable to join external customer messaging platforms such as Slack as we need to measure performance to provide you with the highest level of service.

Our standard Implementation includes one weekly call during the project for a maximum of 45 minutes.
