Data Integration Timeline (1-4 Weeks)

Step 1: Collect Integration Details
You’ll be asked to provide credentials to 3rd party systems. Our integration engineers will then review your data and schedule an integration call to go over the details.
After the integration call, our engineer will draft an integration statement of work (SOW) for both sides to track and complete the needed work.
Step 2: System Integration
- Customer verifies and completes the SOW items.
- Natero verifies and completes the SOW items.
- Natero completes product event data processing.
Step 3: Kick-off Meeting
The purpose of this meeting is to quickly review your data in Natero to make sure it is processed and displayed correctly. The kick-off meeting will be scheduled following the completion of the data integration.
During this meeting, we’ll show you where your data resides and how it is mapped in Natero. We’ll also invite you to help identify any data that needs to be adjusted or corrected in the integration so you have what you need to configure the product properly.
