The following are severity level definitions for Goliath Technologies Support Cases
Severity 1 – Issue has a critical business impact. For example, total product failure and systems down.
Severity 2 – Issue has a significant business impact. For example, situations where product features that are not functioning affect primary and mission critical applications. Although the product is restricted in its availability or function, workaround solutions may exist.
Severity 3 – Issue has a minimal business impact. For example, a product feature may not be functioning but a majority of the product’s features and functionality are available. Workaround solutions may exist.
Severity 4 – Issue has no business impact. For example, questions about product features, configuration questions, documentation clarification, and feature requests.
Customer Support Issue Resolution
Goliath Support provides trained resources to research and resolve issues on a timely basis. While an issue is open, the support team will keep you informed (through ticketing system) of the resolution status, and will notify you when a reported issue has been resolved. If at any point during the resolution process, you become dissatisfied with the handling of your issue, simply contact the case owner and request an escalation to the manager. This allows us to understand your concerns and make adjustments in resources if necessary.
We will make three attempts, on separate business days, to contact you for updates or information on an open case. If we are unable to make contact with you, we may close the case. If the issue continues to exist, you may reopen the case issue.
Resolution of a support case can include any of the following actions:
- Software that provides a fix for the problem (case closed).
- Permanent business or system workaround (case closed).
- Temporary business or system workaround (case severity level is reduced).
- Action plan for the development of a fix or workaround: milestones and dependencies are set, communicated, and tracked (case severity level might be changed).
- Issue is a customer-specific bug, customization or enhancement, and is not covered under maintenance (customer notification, case closed, customer updated on issues status as it relates to product release).
Evaluation Users Support Policy
During the evaluation of any Goliath Technologies product, support is offered as per the severity level of the issue during Goliath Technologies’ normal business hours. For those cases we will make the best effort to respond. 24 x 7 support is not available for evaluation users.
Customer Satisfaction Surveys
We periodically survey customers to obtain additional feedback on recent experiences with Product, and
Customer Support. Survey results are reviewed by management. When a support case is closed, an e- mail may be sent to the customer contact associated with the case. The e-mail contains a link to an online survey with questions covering areas such as the handling of the support case, professionalism, knowledge of the support analyst, and overall satisfaction with the management of the case.
Level of support services provided depends on the life-cycle phase determined for specific version of the product. Current versions of the products are eligible for full support that includes support services and updates/fixes while support for older versions may be limited. A list of known workarounds or existing fixes and assistance with upgrading to a supported version is available for customers using old or discontinued versions.
|Limited Support / End of Maintenance (EOM)||Discontinued Support / End of Life (EOL)|
