Implementation Timeline Chart

Implementation overview

As you prepare for your integration with Bond, there are three main phases: two phases that are pre-production, and the third phase which is live. Across these three phases, there are five workstreams: operations, technical integration, legal, compliance and risk, sales and marketing, and go-live.

At kickoff, we align and get feedback on the scope of your financial services offering, mapping out your final flow of funds, the tests to run on our sandbox, and executing on our Terms of Use. Once these key activities are complete, the rest of phase 1 entails due diligence, opening accounts, and signing bank disclosures. Phase 2 is before go-live and the focus is on ensuring your marketing collateral is compliant, performing pavement testing, and doing risk assessment. Phase 3, as your program is live, is all about monitoring your program’s activities, tweaking your marketing and overall go to market, and iterating. We going live with customers in under 90 days, but we’ve had customers launch with us as soon as a few weeks!
