ASSIST, ADVANCE & CONSULT Support Packages from Simple Solutions
Pre-paid support packages from Simple Solutions are provided under the following terms and conditions:
SUPPORT TIME REQUIRED
At the time of engagement Simple Solutions will, based on our experience and understanding of the requirement, produce an estimate of time required to complete the task will be given (and hours may be purchased in line with this). However, please be aware this is an estimate and we reserve the right to advise on the requirement for additional hours as the project develops, then, by mutual consent, we will invoice for additional hours as the need arises. Conversely, if we manage to complete the task(s) within the hours pre-purchased then any remaining support time can either be held and used over an agreed period (for maintenance or additional tasks) or offered as a credit towards any hardware purchases. Unused support time cannot be refunded.
SUPPORT TIME USES
Support time can be used for any of the support services offered by Simple Solutions and agreed tasks will be issued with a tariff per device (e.g. device configuration) based on the complexity and device specifics. Any tariff will be advised and agreed before the work is carried out or before the appropriate package is purchased. A full list of the services we offer can be provided on request but applicable tariff will vary depending on complexity.
It is understood that any works carried out by Simple Solutions is not mission critical and all work is provided without warranty and is at the clients own risk. It is the responsibility of the client to evaluate and test any work provided, within their own system/application.
