Responsibilities of Those Making a Request for Support
Whenever possible, callers should contact the Help Desk while in front of the equipment or at the required console. All requests will be entered and updated on our online support system. Callers may be asked to provide the following information when making a request:
- User’s and Company name
- User’s Contact Details
- Full Description Of Problem(s)
- Full Description Of Error Message(s)
- Recent Change(s) Possibly Related?
- Diagnosis Already Carried Out?
All contacts should be made via a single authorised end user contact where possible. An authorised contact is someone in your organisation who is recognised by Net-Ctrl Ltd as authorised to contact Net-Ctrl Ltd for support.
Net-Ctrl Ltd will confirm all support charges have been paid before responding to any support queries, this is a quick process so please ensure your support and maintenance does not lapse and cause a delay in your service. A unique support contract should be in place, however, should a contract not be in place you will be referred to our sales team.
All change requests for managed service customers will be logged on our support website(s) requests for work will be scheduled according to an assigned priority and availability of staff resources during normal hours, the telephone is answered as soon as possible. Users have the option of leaving a voicemail message during regular hours or after hours.
All calls will receive a response within 8 hours, or the next business day to verify a problem and/or set up time for resolution.
Priorities and Response Times
These are what we endeavour to work toward but are in no way set out as a legal or contractual agreement that either party has entered in to.
Support requests will be processed using the following categories for priority “when requested” by the customer and assigned in the following order:
- Severe: Receives attention within 2 hours depending on the engineer’s assessment.
- High: Receives attention within 8 hours.
- Medium: These will receive attention within 24hrs but most probably within 8hrs.
- Low: will be scheduled for resolution within 2-3 working days. Low priority generally includes requests for new functionality such as software upgrades.
In most cases, issues are resolved swiftly. Should an issue have to be raised on the Manufacturer or Vendor then we can only advise on their response times, these being outside of our control.
Return Merchandise Authorisation Procedure
Should an item require replacement due to a manufacturer fault, Net-Ctrl will work with the client to raise the official Return Merchandise Authorisation (RMA). Net-Ctrl will engage with the manufacturer on the client’s behalf and provide an RMA case number to the client along with shipping details.
Please note, it is the client’s responsibility to ship all faulty equipment that has been requested by the manufacturer to the address provided as part of the RMA claim process. The manufacturer will pay for the new\fixed\replacement item to be sent back to the client under the T&C’s of the RMA.
We will always abide by the manufacturers returns procedures, a copy of which can be provided upon request. There may be exceptional circumstances where the above is not followed. In these instances, the case(s) will be escalated according to the standard escalation procedure outlined in this document.
Net-Ctrl Ltd shall invoke the escalation process where necessary, to ensure that all support requests submitted by the customer will be actively progressed. This is upon request of the customer.
Net-Ctrl Ltd will not manage and troubleshoot network file servers, network operating systems, network printing services, web servers, and other network hardware and software components that fall outside of the products we have sold and or support.
