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

We believe in short, focused and easy implementation, 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.

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 Customer Success 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.
  • There are no scripts, no third-party vendors and no gimmicks during implementation with PeopleAdmin. The SmartStart methodology is consultative and personal.
  • The PeopleAdmin team has more than 15 years’ experience serving education, so you can rest assured you’re working with knowledgeable, experienced professionals.


  • Training is hands-on, not lecture-style
  • Customers 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
  • Wherever possible, your team will interact with and experience the processes as you build them


  • A tailored approach to implementation goes hand-in-hand with the consultative nature of SmartStart implementation
  • If your institution requires more training on a certain aspect of your solution, that’s where we’ll focus
  • 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


  • Our ongoing services and trainings help users grow with the solution at their pace
  • Familiarity with the system doesn’t stop at the end of the implementation, with The Classroom and other training options, 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
  • Certifications to move from basic to expert user levels, coming soon
SmartStart also expands implementation delivery options to match customers’ schedules, locations, and budgets.

Implementation delivery options vary by product and include:

  • Self-service with video-based training resources
  • One-on-one implementation with a Customer Success Manager
  • 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, PeopleAdmin representative comes to your campus to conduct implementation activities and training
  • End-user training, where the PeopleAdmin team trains hiring managers
