What's it take to start using COMET?

Complete our Initial Fit Assessment. With this baseline information, we can set up a time to meet with your team to perform a detailed Fit Assessment, reviewing your specific situation and needs with appropriate decision makers in your organization. This process will help determine if COMET is the best fit for you.

After a Fit Assessment, COMET will leverage the documented results to develop a Proposal. Our Proposal provides a clear project plan and roadmap to success. With appropriate decision makers involved, the next step is to sign the Proposal and begin with COMET!
The team defined in the proposal will then conduct the implementation, led by your assigned COMET account manager. Typically, the steps include gathering data for import into COMET, configuring your organization, data import, and two rounds of training. Your COMET account manager will schedule support calls to help with suggestions to implement your defined organizational goals. Check out our Getting Started page for the details.
