We are so excited to welcome you to the 10KC Community! We’ve created this Welcome Package to prepare you for your upcoming Program implementation. There are just a few things for you to review and understand before we get started. 

Setting the Stage

At 10KC, we know what we’re doing and we’re here to help. Here are some things to keep in mind as you implement your 10KC Program. 

  • Every decision starts with a recommendation. We have tried and true best practices to help you develop and roll-out a highly effective Program. 
  • We make it as easy as possible. We have templates and quick-start guides to minimize your effort and maximize adoption.
  • We meet your members where they work. 10KC integrations allow your Program to come directly into member inboxes. 

Whether you’re looking for an easy-to-use out-of-the-box Program, or you have specific Program requirements you want to scale with 10KC, we’ll work with you throughout the implementation to make it as simple as possible. 

Your Team

The first piece to a successful and efficient implementation is having the right team members involved. You’ll meet your 10KC Customer Success team shortly. In the meantime, it’s important you start thinking about who can help you on your side

Below is a list of roles 10KC recommends including in your implementation, along with expected effort during the implementation.
