Join the Customer Reference Program
How does it all work? Once you've agreed to join the program, here are the next steps.
- Complete the form.
- We will contact you to arrange an interview call. The call takes about 30 minutes, and we will ask you about your solution, the challenges you've solved and the benefits of the solution. Moreover, we will discuss your participation options.
- If you choose to do a written story with our company, we produce a first draft and send it to you for approval. After we receive your approval, we publish the story according to the agreement we made with you.
- If you've agreed to do a video testimonial, we will create a script and arrange a date and time to do the filming. The video shoot usually takes about four hours, of which filming the interview takes about 30 minutes, and the rest of the time is spent filming the surroundings. Before we publish the video, we send it to you for approval or change requests. You will find some examples of video testimonials here.
- If you choose speaking opportunities, we will contact you occasionally to ask you for your participation in webcasts, with analysts or with journalists.
We have structured this program to minimize demands on your time and to be as unobtrusive and efficient as possible for all involved.
