This team is powered by Unite Us.

Community Engagement Managers are assigned to a particular region and hold all influencer and strategy sessions in that community. They hold workflow planning meetings to ensure that the technology is personalized to fit each partner’s needs. CEMs are responsible for bringing together partners as part of a regional socialization process. CEMs help you join leaders from diverse sectors in the community, discuss the platform and answer questions about joining NCCARE360, and complete the partner registration form. Learn more about the socialization process here.

Customer Success Managers and Customer Success Representatives lead onboarding and software trainings. They make modifications and adjustment based on learnings of the community, and give ongoing technical assistance. Most importantly, they are available to onboard additional organizations in launched regions and continue to work with current partners. Customer Success Managers help you get trained on NCCARE360, successfully onboard staff, and find out how to access data. Customer Success Representatives conduct ongoing user support and receive feedback on NCCARE360 features, empowering you to continue utilizing the network.
