SPICA All Hours: Free onboarding and implementation

Once you have started the free trial (and decided to upgrade your SPICA All Hours account), a Customer Success Manager will be in touch with you shortly to help you with implementation, according to your company structure, users, and time rules.

This article will provide an overview of your free onboarding, and the implementation of SPICA All Hours once you are our paid customer. The goal of this implementation process is to configure your account according to your company's specific needs and gain comprehensive knowledge so as to best integrate SPICA All Hours into your daily work.

Once your contract starts, your trial account will be converted into your actual account, including all the features you have purchased. Any settings you have made up to that point will be carried over.

The duration of the implementation and resources available

The duration of the implementation and resources available

Depending on the size of your company and the scope of your SPICA All Hours system, implementation takes from a few hours to a few days, and up to a few weeks for the biggest systems. During this time, we will provide you with all the information you need and monitor the progress of your implementation.

During and after the implementation, all our (interactive) learning materials such as our Help Center, interactive tours, webinars, and our community are available to you.

Your first contact with the Customer Success Manager
Step 1

Your first contact with the Customer Success Manager

We know very well how important first contact is.

In the beginning, your personal Customer Success Manager will provide you with all the important information about the implementation process - from the implementation plan to templates for data collection and other input data needed for setting up the system.

All your additional questions will be answered. You will get to know your Customer Success Manager, who will be always available to you.

Before the officially agreed implementation start date, you should have enough time to collect all the data and information you need for implementation.

Please also register for our webinar: “How do I prepare for the implementation?” 

Import data preparation
Step 2

Import data preparation

Use the time before starting the implementation to collect all the necessary data. This is especially important if you do not yet have your data in electronic form, or if you need to request employee data externally. In SPICA All Hours you have the option to import all data via Excel.

Prior to beginning your implementation, the following data must be gathered and prepared:

  • Employee data
  • Emails
  • Hourly balances
  • Leave accruals
  • Departments and positions
  • Other important data regarding implementation

For all these imports, we provide you with the appropriate Excel templates.

The basic setup with our Help Wizard
Step 3

The basic setup with our Help Wizard

To configure the most basic setup in SPICA All Hours, you will be guided by our Help Wizard (together with your Customer Success Manager if needed). This will allow you to customize your account to meet your specific needs. Before configuring any specific details, we ask you to complete the setup wizard first.

  • If you would like to expand the features that SPICA All Hours includes, please write to with your request for access control or project time tracking. You can find an overview of our solutions on our website.

Using the Wizard is really simple, and a notice to that effect will be displayed at the top of your screen.
The setup wizard will guide you through the basic configuration settings for your account in 4 steps, and these can be changed later if desired.
