Jumpstart Service Description
The objective of the Jumpstart Service is to help Customer rapidly learn to develop Models and use the Looker Software. Looker will assign a consultant to assess Customer’s needs, then consult, train and in some cases co-develop with Customer’s Model owner.
Looker will provide subject matter expertise, working under the direction of Customer project managers and technical staff, as part of Customer project teams. Looker consultants will work to ensure the best application of Looker technology within these projects. Assistance and mentoring within and across project teams will be a priority of the Looker consultants in this engagement. This will include providing guidance to the Customer around the design, development, testing and deployment of their applications using Looker Software.
The Jumpstart Service is delivered remotely.
A Jumpstart typically has the following elements:
- Kick-off Meeting
- Model and Data Review
- Developer Training
- Recommendation Summary Report
- Business User Training
- Provide a Project Management contact
- Assign a consultant from Looker or an approved implementation partner
- Coordinate regular status meetings and reports
- Notify Customer immediately if there is an expected change in the level of effort
- Provide a remote access learning environment if Customer’s Looker Instance will not be used
- Ensure that data structures are finalized, and data is readily available by the date of the project kickoff meeting.
- Supply remote access to the system via VPN technology and credentials supplied by customer, within 3 business days of the project kickoff meeting.
- Ensure that personnel with appropriate skills and experience are available to meet with Looker as reasonably necessary, so the project can be completed within 60 days of the purchase date.
- Ensure that appropriate resources are engaged to resolve an issue if Looker determines the issue is due to a problem in Customer’s environment.
- Notify Looker at least 12 hours in advance if a meeting or session needs to be rescheduled.
- The Looker professional services working day is eight hours, including reasonable time for meals. Looker expects that Customer personnel are available during normal working hours. Looker understands that occasions arise during customer engagements that require a longer or shorter working day.
- Work is performed remotely from Looker’s offices and will be coordinated with Customer to ensure timely delivery. Significant after-hours or any weekend work may result in additional fees. While none are expected in this engagement, Looker will advise Customer prior to incurring any such fees and obtain Customer’s prior written consent before proceeding.
- Jumpstart is scoped to be completed within 90 days of kick off and Looker allocates its
enablement personnel accordingly. If Jumpstart is not completed within 90 days following kickoff
Customer must elect to:
- End the Jumpstart engagement and transition to support by Looker’s customer success team,
in accordance with Exhibit B; or
- Execute a Statement of Work to extend the timeframe of the Jumpstart services. Additional fees may
apply depending on the remaining work to complete Customer’s Software implementation.
Scope of Work
The scope of the Jumpstart Service is limited to the elements listed above. Should Customer wish to expand the engagement, Looker will create a separate Statement of Work (“SOW”) to outline the process, timeline and requirements for the additional configuration Services. Looker will provide the Services specified in the SOW on a Time and Materials basis.
Travel and Expense
It is expected that the Jumpstart Service will be delivered remotely. For any agreed upon on-site work, Customer will reimburse out-of-pocket expenses (“Other Costs”) incurred in the performance of the Services. Out-of-pocket expenses shall include airfare, lodging, meals, ground transportation as well as all other travel related expenses. Looker will make reasonable efforts to use travel services such as corporate air and hotel rates as requested by Customer. Looker shall obtain Customer’s written approval prior to incurring any such expenses. Customer will provide a Purchase Order (or similar) for invoices.
Looker shall invoice Customer for Services and Other Costs on a monthly basis and will provide supporting documentation as requested. All payments shall be made in accordance with Section 4.1.
