SmartStart Implementation: A proven process to get you up and running and on your way to success

We believe in short, focused and easy implementations, so teams can quickly take advantage of our powerful solutions. SmartStart methodology was created in collaboration with hundreds of customers and focuses on your unique needs to lay the foundation for an amazing customer experience. PeopleAdmin has proven success in deploying PeopleAdmin Solutions to over 840+ colleges & universities with over 75 years of combined experience in HigherEd solutions and implementations. 

Templatized Gold sites with pre-built best practice forms & workflows mean you never need to start from scratch. 

SmartStart is designed around these four pillars of success:


  • In talent management solution implementations, one size doesn’t fit all — that’s why we pair you with an expert project manager to define an implementation plan and timeline to support the unique needs of your organization and help you optimize your processes wherever possible. 
  • Our team is trained to listen and use your input to design an implementation approach that fits your team. 
  • The PeopleAdmin team has more than 15 years’ experience serving higher education, so you can rest assured you’re working with knowledgeable, experienced professionals. 


  • Training is hands-on, not lecture-styleCustomers use their own systems as much as possible. 
  • Engaging trainings improve knowledge transfer rates, leaving your team feeling more empowered to use the solution in less time.


  • A tailored approach to implementation goes together with the consultative nature of SmartStart implementation. 
  • Using the timeline and approach you defined with your expert consultants, we will further focus implementation on the things that matter most to you: your workflows, your processes, your solution.


  • Familiarity with the system doesn’t stop at the end of the implementation, with multiple training options available, your team can empower basic users to become expert users 
  • Invest in new employees’ success or help bring rededicated employees up to speed and using the solution effectively with post-implementation training options.
Implementation delivery options vary by product and include:
  • Self-service with video-based training resources 
  • One-on-one implementation with a project manager and/or consultant  
  • Full-service setup–PeopleAdmin builds forms, workflows, and other configurations for you 
  • Custom Scope, where you work with a PeopleAdmin representative to design implementation activities for new system configurations built uniquely for your institution 
  • Onsite options are available where PeopleAdmin representative will come to your campus to conduct implementation activities and training 
  • End-user training, where the PeopleAdmin team trains hiring managers
