support contract SLA


1. Hours of service

All software customers receive remote support during office hours as part of their licensing agreement, via telephone or web ticket. Out of hours cover is available on request for an additional fee, customers joining from 1st October 2018 will have this level of cover included in their price. Office hours are defined as 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday excluding UK public holidays. Support requests made outside of these hours will be billed for on the ad-hoc support rate as above, unless an out of hours support contract is in place.

2. Response times

Within the hours of service outlined above, we endeavour to respond to urgent support tickets within 1 hour. Tickets deemed urgent are those stopping you from trading. Any delays in responding greater than 1 hour will result in a credit equivalent to 20% of your monthly support fee for the first and each additional hour that you have to wait for our initial response. Please note that response does not necessarily mean fix, resolution of a problem depends on many factors including the nature of the problem itself, we will discuss with you the required steps to resolve your issue when you make contact with us.

3. Service inclusions

The following scenarios are explicitly included within your service contract, and there will be no charge for supporting you remotely in these instances other than your agreed monthly or annual fee for support:

  1. Software bug – defective code leads to an issue, which renders all or part of the system unusable.

  3. General fault finding – helping operators identify the cause of a problem relating to software and/or hardware purchased through Tengo Software. (for example, identifying printer jam, incorrect button press etc.). Fault finding is only covered if the cause of the fault is related to software or hardware supplied by Tengo Software.

4. Service exclusions

Any scenarios in which we are contacted that do not fall under any of the points in section 3 above will be charged for at our standard rates as outlined above. These include but are not restricted to the following examples:

  1. Any fault with software and/or hardware NOT provided by Tengo Software.
  2. If hardware we’ve supplied is outside of warranty, or you have been warned/advised it is defective and in need of upgrade/repair, issues caused as a result of you not replacing/repairing the hardware as advised will be chargeable.
  3. User training.
  4. System configuration, price updates, changes etc.
