An Insider's view of Sertifi

What does your typical day look like?

After getting some coffee and catching up on emails, I’ll typically have a few clients that need onboarding help! This consists of me discussing their workflows and what action is needed for them to be live using Sertifi. If we’re not discussing set up, I’m either training a team on how to use the system, or creating web portals for new clients!
