How long do I have to upgrade?
As of October 2023, Hiring Manager will no longer be supported, therefore progressing with this upgrade sooner rather than later will enable you and your hiring teams to take advantage of the PeopleMatter features and start attracting and onboarding candidates faster!
How long will the upgrade take?
Each business is unique, however, the process of upgrading will be quick and easy for your teams. The Fourth Professional Services team will handle the setup and configuration of PeopleMatter. Your teams will be able to join training calls, enabling them to take full advantage of the solution. Typically, the process takes 2-4 weeks from start to finish!
Will my current career page, job openings, and applicants be transferred over as is?
Yes, all your company data will be transferred over to PeopleMatter by the Fourth team.
What kind of training will be provided for my team?
As part of the upgrade, your teams will have access to digital training materials and regular webinars that feature a demo, key tips to best leverage PeopleMatter, and Q&A sessions. For ongoing support as a Fourth customer, you will have access to our Customer Success Portal, our 24/7/365 support lines, and your account manager.
How much will the upgrade services cost?
There is NO cost to upgrade your account from Hiring Manager to PeopleMatter!
How will my monthly/annual price be affected post-upgrade?
There will be no change to your subscription fee and applicable terms for the remainder of your current contract. Per Fourth’s standard terms, price increases may occur at renewals.
Data Integration Questions
How will my integrations be impacted by this change?
PeopleMatter partners with the same data and payroll integrations as Hiring Manager. Our Professional Services team will work with you on any additional questions as we rebuild your integrations on PeopleMatter.
With this upgrade, we are also updating our file processing security. If you have an existing FTP integration, we will be moving from Exavault to OneHub. Once you decide to upgrade to PeopleMatter, our team of Integration Analysts will set this feature up and test it with you.
