EP SmartStart for Hiring Managers

SmartStart eliminates the need for paper deal memos to be printed, handed around, and stored in production offices. It also offers a faster and more secure platform for accountants or Heads of Departments to manage their hiring process.

EP offers three training solutions available for those in charge of sending deal memos to access at their convenience. Completing at least one of these training modules before using SmartStart would help alleviate some of the challenges faced by new users.
