Client responsibilities and considerations
  • Changes in scope outside of the brief agreed with Account Manager before project kick off will need to be discussed with the Account Manager. Any changes to scope of work may result in additional costs and depending on what the change to scope involves, this may not be achievable within previously agreed timelines. 

  • Client will make all efforts to condense support requests into one email where possible.  

  • Client will provide brand guidelines and design assets where required to assist with the platform design setup. 

  • Client will provide all content in agreed templates and will proofread content before sending to CrowdComms. 

  • CrowdComms upload content as provided.  

  • Once content is loaded, client will make ongoing edits including show day updates via the CMS. 

  • Client will review and approve all content, the platform and complete the project sign off form before promotion.  

  • Client will be responsible for sending the html promotion email provided by CrowdComms. Best practise is to send this html email via an email marketing provider i.e. mail chimp. If you do not have access to an appropriate email marketing platform, it will be your responsibility to find an alternative method of promoting the platform.  

  • Client will be responsible for managing communications with end users who have issues accessing the platform - Read more 

  • In all instances the client will be required to complete the project sign off form. If you promote the platform without completing the project sign off form which follows the CrowdComms internal QC check, CrowdComms will not be responsible for any issues that may arise as a result of the setup.

CrowdComms are not responsible for delays in the submission that arise from waiting for app store setup or approval.
