Customer onboarding

Switchboard helps customer success teams:

  • Simplify onboarding in one space
  • Offer impactful and interactive trainings
  • Save time by templatizing the customer onboarding experience
  • Bypass scheduling setbacks with video walkthroughs

Use any tool, including:

1.

White-glove feel, at scale

Templatize your onboarding materials into one room, and duplicate for each new customer. Then customize as you progress.

2.

Stronger adoption by doing

Customers can practice with you in a multi-player browser, or with interactive videos that sync to room apps so they can play, pause, and follow along.

3.

Better onboarding experiences

Deliver a stellar onboarding experience that keeps everything in the same space—instead of scattering it across emails, articles, and hard-to-schedule meetings.

Any tool, side-by-side

Any web-based tools work natively in Switchboard’s multi-player browser apps. Just paste a URL into the canvas and go. You can drive while your customer gets hands-on experience.

How to set up your customer onboarding room

  1. Set the agenda. Use the notepad app to set your meeting agenda and take notes. Track anything that comes up in a meeting or between them with an open question app. Our AI assistant can summarize and brainstorm solutions based on what’s in your room.
  2. Log into the tools you use. Use browsers to log into any relevant web apps where your working files, project management tools, and educational materials live. You can also upload any file here.
  3. Invite your customers. Share your room—all your work, meetings, feedback, and follow-ups are in the room, instead of scattered across threads. Whether you have a video call, a resource to share, or a training to give, it’s all from the same room, same URL. 
  4. Share work and stay organized. Group related items together in sections to make everything even easier to find. Can’t find a meeting time for weeks? Record in-room videos for customers to watch in the same room where the materials are.

Onboard customers successfully with

  • Video and voice calls
  • Room recordings & walkthroughs
  • Notepads and open question apps to track everything
  • AI advice, notes, and summaries
  • Browsers for any web app
  • Live chat and comment threads

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a customer onboarding room and how does it improve the onboarding experience?

A customer onboarding room is a single space where you and your customer will go for meetings, trainings, information, and follow-ups so they can onboard to your SaaS tool, app, or service and get to ROI faster. With everything in one, interactive space, the onboarding experience is both simplified and powered up for your customer who can follow along with your teaching live in a meeting or on their own time. It’s also simplified for CSMs who can templatize their rooms and duplicate them right from the start for each new customer—which is key when each experience with your company’s services counts. 

What applications can I use in Switchboard?

Any tool that you can use in your browser works in Switchboard’s browser app—from your company’s product that you’re onboarding them to, to project management, to CRMs. Customer success managers can also add multiple screen shares of web pages they have open without sharing them directly with a customer.

How do browsers work in Switchboard?

Any room member can log into a web service from Switchboard’s browser app. This member can keep any page open and visible to room members, give shared control (even during video calls), or pause access when they are not in the room. In that case, other members can open their own view associated with their account. Occasionally you might be logged out of your apps and asked to log in again, just like on a web browser. 

Who has access to the room?

You can set different access levels for your Switchboard workspace and its rooms. Invite your customer and their colleagues to their company’s room as limited workspace members to give them visibility and access to only the rooms you invite them to. Other stakeholders can have guest access to a room—they’ll only be admitted when someone else is in the room to let them in.
