Get To Know Edify: The Leading Onboarding Tool for Engineering and Technical Teams

Austin Epon

Onboarding newly hired software engineers can easily overwhelm technical leaders, especially when there’s a need to repeat the entire process every time a new batch of qualified applicants is passed down from HR. Truth be told - it requires all the focus and even extra hours to do it every single time, not to mention how a routine can leave room for inconsistency, compromise, and team exhaustion.

One of the risks of having poor onboarding practices is seeing high employee turnover rates, or the number of employees leaving a company. Though there are many factors to consider for this subject, there are multiple studies that strongly relate onboarding experiences to employee retention.

Edify is an all-in-one automated solution to onboard your newly hired software engineers and help them become the best contributing members in no time. Your team won’t have to worry about switching schedules and making solutions for repeating problems that come every time a new member joins. Let Eddy do the onboarding for easy administration!
