Onboarding with Rithum

Email when testing is complete. 

  • Subject line: L&T Rithum Testing Complete – Vendor Name & Rithum Number
  • Notification delays and incomplete steps can impact the Rithum account activation process.
  • We will review the account to confirm testing was completed successfully, and follow-up regarding next steps.
  • You will receive an email confirmation once your account has been activated.

The expectation for all vendors is to register and begin testing immediately once the invite has been sent, completing the entire onboarding process in a timely manner. Otherwise, requests are subject to cancellation. If a third-party is responsible for completing testing, your team will need to make sure they are making progress and meeting the deadlines set.
