Our onboarding process for new customers

If you have decided to collaborate with the Hermes Einrichtungs Service in 2-person handling delivery, we will go through a well-defined onboarding process together in close coordination, consisting of seven steps, for a perfect start.

  1. The collaboration begins with the contract signing.
  2. Definition of a common start date, when goods and data will start flowing.
  3. Registration of the customer in the HES client portal PORT to gain access to relevant systems and information.
  4. The customer provides test data to ensure smooth data transmission and proper integration of systems.
  5. The customer participates in a PORT training to become familiar with the features and processes and learn how to use the systems.
  6. The operational start begins after successful completion of the training. The customer actively utilizes the systems and becomes involved in the flow of goods and data.
  7. Regular feedback loops during the onboarding process allow for identifying any issues and making improvements. The customer’s feedback is of great importance in continuously optimizing the onboarding process.
