How long does it take to get started with 3-5 users and 3-5 agencies?
You will need to build your categories, sub categories, opening times and services for your network.
You need to have agreed with the agencies you want to work with that they are happy to use Refernet (see our Word Doc invitation template in ‘Downloads’ which may help you with this),
and then set up and send them their user details. We would suggest this half a day’s work for a small network.
What is the best way to engage the other agencies we want to use Refernet?
It is important to understand the politics of getting agencies to use ‘your’ chosen system. Some might be much larger organisations than yours and think that they should be leading a technological solution.
It can be a matter of not bruising ego’s. Refernet, we hope will be a good solution, and it is important that you let them know that it is an independent Company, and that you will
also be operating as an agency at the same ‘level’ as they will.
You just happen to administer the network. Our invitation Word document might be useful for you to adapt (see Downloads here)
