Support Information

  • The response time is the time taken between you creating a ticket and our team starting work on the ticket. The guaranteed response time is linked to the priority of the service level ticket raised.
  • The resolution time is the time taken by Intorel to determine a suitable diagnosis for the ticket raised. The guaranteed resolution time is linked to the priority of the service level ticket raised.
  • A response may take the form of:
    • alerting you that the support team has started investigating the ticket
    • a request for further information
  • A resolution may take the form of:
    • a suggested workaround
    • confirmation of a known issue
    • recommendation for further consultancy work
  • A quicker response and resolution time is guaranteed with higher priority service level tickets.
  • The service level support also offers guaranteed resolution times in relation to the priority of the service level ticket that you rise.
  • Guaranteed response and resolution times only apply to incident ticket types - while we aim to meet specific response and resolution times for questions, these times are not guaranteed. Questions are generally answered during normal business hours and will be raised on the Intorel forum.

Tickets Requests

Tickets Request System

Tickets are used to measure the number and priority of service level tickets that can be raised against a service level contract. Each service level contract includes a fixed annual quota of tickets.

When raising a service level ticket, it is necessary to select an appropriate priority for the ticket. The selected priority indicates to our support team the importance and urgency of when a response/resolution is required.

It is possible to purchase more tickets when the standard quota has been used.

Tickets Refunds

While the support team will do their best to assist with the tickets that you raise, there may be cases where we miss the mark. In the unlikely case that the support team fail to meet the guaranteed response or resolution times, you will be refunded a number of tickets in respect of this failure.

  • One ticket will be refunded against any ticket for which we fail to meet the guaranteed response time.
  • One ticket will be refunded against any ticket for which we fail to meet the guaranteed resolution time.
  • One ticket will be refunded against any ticket for which we fail to meet both the guaranteed response and resolution times.

 

EOL Coverage

End of Life Policy

The term End of Life (EOL) refers to the point at which a software vendor no longer offers support for a particular version of their applications. As new versions of the applications are released, the software provider will normally stop supporting the older versions - the older versions have reached End of Life status.

Intorel supports major versions of its applications two years after the last minor iteration of that version was released. For example, Visionic 4 support will end on 8th of August 2012 (2 years after 4.98 was released).

Intorel EOL Service Level Coverage

Intorel extends its comprehensive service level support to cover Visionic software that has reached EOL status. This type of coverage is available for clients who hold a valid Enterprise Contract (Enterprise Response) with us. Under an Enterprise contract, versions of Visionic that have reached or are scheduled for EOL status can be supported according agreement with Intorel.

Getting Service Level Support for EOL versions

The normal process for engaging Intorel to provide EOL service level coverage begins with a general health check of your system. Our Intorel engineers will review your M&C station deployment and environment in order to determine how maintainable it is.

In some cases, corrective action (administered through paid consultancy work) will be required to ensure that the system can be maintained in a reliable and consistent manner.

However, in some cases, the only viable solution for issues on EOL applications/environments may be to upgrade to a later version.

Under an Enterprise contract, major versions of Visionic software are supported for 2 years after reaching the EOL status. With EOL Service Level Coverage Intorel guaranties that stations will function normally.
