How it Works


Submit onboarding requests

Using a SmartForm, managers can send in all the necessary employee information:  

  • First and Last Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Role
  • Start Date
  • Employee Phone
  • Employee Email 

Managers could also include information around any IT access, equipment, and facilities requirements they have for this specific role.  


HR, IT, and facilities take action

  • If all employee information is complete and approved, tasks will be created for each team to take action. 
  • All teams will be notified to complete their tasks by a certain timeframe via email or mobile push notification.  
  • A reminder will be sent out to let task assignees know if task is still incomplete.
  • If task owners have any questions, they can access the information provided from the request form. 


Generate and deliver documents

  • Automatically create any documents that need new hires’ signatures using information provided in the request form.
  • Send new hires any existing documents that still need personal information or signatures that can be integrated with your e-Signature solution
