Client Communication and Engagement Policy
Effective communication and a strong working relationship with our clients are essential to the success of the Techy Train Incubator. This Client Communication and Engagement Policy outlines our preferred methods and guidelines for interacting with clients to ensure transparency, efficiency, and mutual understanding. By adhering to this policy, we aim to provide exceptional service while maintaining professionalism and respect for both parties.
- Primary Communication Channel: We encourage the use of email as the primary mode of communication for all project-related discussions, queries, and updates. This helps maintain a clear trail of communication and ensures efficient tracking of information.
- Alternative Channels: For urgent matters or quick queries, clients may also contact their designated project manager via phone or a collaborative messaging platform as agreed upon during the project initiation.
- Our regular office hours are from 9 am to 4 pm (WAT), Mondays through Fridays. During these hours, our team will be available to respond promptly to client inquiries.
- We understand that urgent matters may arise outside of regular office hours. In such cases, clients are requested to contact us via phone or the designated emergency contact channels agreed upon.
- We strive to respond to all client inquiries within 24 hours during regular office hours.
- If a request requires a detailed response or research, we will acknowledge the receipt of the message within the specified timeframe and provide an estimated resolution time.
- For urgent matters or critical issues, we will prioritize our response and resolution time accordingly.
Meetings and Consultations:
- Meetings will be scheduled in advance to ensure the availability of all relevant parties. We recommend using video conferencing or in-person meetings when appropriate, as it fosters better communication and understanding.
- To make the most of these interactions, we encourage clients to provide an agenda or a list of discussion points in advance. This will help us prepare and address their concerns effectively.
- All project-related agreements, changes, or scope modifications must be documented and shared in writing. This ensures clarity, avoids miscommunication, and serves as a reference for both parties.
- Verbal agreements or discussions should be followed up with an email or written confirmation to maintain an official record of the agreement.
Project Updates and Reporting:
- We will provide regular project updates to keep clients informed of the progress, milestones achieved, and any potential challenges or delays.
- Reports, status updates, or any other deliverables agreed upon will be shared as per the agreed-upon schedule or milestones.
- In case of any concerns or issues with our services or communication, clients are encouraged to escalate the matter to the designated escalation contact or project manager.
- We will promptly address and resolve the escalated issue in a professional and satisfactory manner.
Confidentiality and Data Security:
- We prioritize the confidentiality and security of our clients’ information and data. All client communication, project details, and sensitive information will be treated with strict confidentiality.
- We have implemented necessary security measures to protect client data from unauthorized access, loss, or misuse.
