Standard Support Service
Part 1: Description
everyLIFE’s Standard Support Services package for PASS suite of products includes the following elements:
- general system queries and advice;
- fault diagnosis;
- remedy of software faults;
- provision of fixes and patches;
- support call tracking and analysis; and
- provision of an online help facility with frequently asked questions and access to updates on such queries from the Support and Client Services team.
Provision of services shall be conditional upon the Client having:
- provided such information as may be reasonably expected in respect of any malfunction in the software;
- incorporated all amendments and software updates as issued by everyLIFE;
- not otherwise changed the software which is not in accordance with the operating instructions, and
- provided full access to enable everyLIFE to access your system without attending site, under such security arrangements as agreed between the parties.
The expectation is that users have received sufficient training to enable them to be competent in the use of PASS. The level of assistance provided to a user will be up to the level of training which that user has completed. If the level of support required is higher than the training that the user has received then the query should be referred to a member of your organisation who has received the appropriate level of training. Repetitive requests in respect of an issue on which everyLIFE has already advised a solution may incur additional charges.
Note: The above service offering excludes such services referred to in Schedule 3, (defined as Additional Services) which are available from everyLIFE upon request. Please contact your account manager for a quotation.
Part 2: Service Levels
|Category Level||Impact||Definition||Response||Target Resolution Time|
|1||Critical||Non-availability and total loss of service to the Client due to failure of the Software Product.||2 Business Hours||4 Business Hours|
|2||Material||A limited repeatedly occurring loss of service availability to the Client, affecting usage and operational risk.||4 Business Hours||8 Business Hours|
|3||Important||Reduced service availability which does not create operational risk of the Client.||8 Business Hours||4 Business Days|
|4||Cosmetic||A fault of a cosmetic nature and of no immediate consequence which does not affect the use of the application or service availability of the customer.||2 Business Hours||3 months or next release, whichever is the sooner|
1. For the purposes of clarification, a response is deemed to have been delivered when:
(a) during a telephone support call only and subject to Client availability, the receipt of a new Support incident has been formally acknowledged to the Client. Otherwise, an automated response to an email or incident logged via everyLIFE’s website constitutes a Response;
(b) that Support incident has been assigned a unique reference number that has, subject to Client availability, been communicated to the Client;
(c) that Support incident has been assigned a Category Level 1, 2, 3 or 4 that has, subject to Client availability, been communicated to the Client. This will be an initial priority until a technical appraisal of the Support incident has been completed.
2. For the purposes of clarification a resolution is deemed to have been delivered when an everyLIFE representative has been consulted and has provided you with any of the following:
(a) a Fix;
(b) an appropriate workaround has been identified and communicated to you and the timing of a Fix has been mutually agreed between the parties (such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed);
(c) the system has been rolled back to the last working version of the Product and the timing of a Fix has been mutually agreed between the parties (such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed);
(d) the timing of a Fix has been mutually agreed between the parties (such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed);
For the avoidance of doubt:
- everyLIFE shall use reasonable endeavours to provide a resolution which constitutes a Fix in the first instance. Where this is not reasonably possible, everyLIFE shall provide an alternative resolution as set out in paragraph 2(b) or paragraph 2(c). The option referred to in paragraph 2(d) shall not constitute a resolution unless the other possible resolution options set out in paragraphs 2(a) to 2(c) have first been investigated and found to be impossible or unworkable, in which event the parties shall in good faith agree the timing of delivery of a Fix.
- everyLIFE shall not be in breach of the Service Levels if the Customer unreasonably withholds its agreement to the timing of delivery of the Fix.
- everyLIFE Technologies will make provision for the system to continue to be maintained for a period of no less than 3 months should everyLIFE suffer a critical business impact. This will afford Customers sufficient time to invoke the appropriate business continuity measures, including data extraction.
- User training (additional training following the initial implementation of PASS).
- Additional form development.
- Client specific reports and data outputs.
- Bespoke customer-specified product development to support a new pathway and / or operational demand.
