When it comes to telecom retail software, stability is essential for my business. What is the iQmetrix Service-Level Agreement?
iQmetrix is dedicated to proving telecom retailers with dependable software solutions that power their business today, tomorrow, and far into the future. Our product teams focus on ensuring stability which translates into an uptime of at least 99.5%. If issues arise for our clients, our teams work swiftly to identify and resolve problems so business isn’t blocked and sales aren’t lost.
What is considered a business-blocking issue? How can I get support for this kind of problem?
Issues are given priority based on 1) the impact on the business experiencing that issue and 2) the time it takes for the issue to be resolved. High priority items will be resolved in less than 8 hours while lower priority items will be completed during regular business hours. For these issues, an estimated resolution time will be given after the issue is inspected.
I was notified maintenance is being done on my iQmetrix solution. What does this process look like?
Typically, there are approximately 10 releases of our solutions a year. These releases include new features added to the software and any maintenance needed to improve the solution. Each version goes through a one-month regression period with several automation tests that run during development and regression. These tests help to ensure the latest version of iQmetrix solutions is everything your business needs.
I use iQmetrix solutions. How often do maintenance and updates occur? How does maintenance affect my use of iQmetrix products?
We schedule maintenance between 11:00 PM CST – 3:00 AM CST. While maintenance can occur nightly, we only notify you of maintenance if there is a chance it could impact your business operations — something that only happens 2 or 3 times a year. However, if your business prefers to be notified of all maintenance activities, regardless of its impact on daily operations, our change management team can work with you to determine a communication process. Updates will be scheduled with your account manager so you can find a specific date and time that works for your business. Updates will be deployed after-hours and you will automatically receive a prompt to download and install the update upon the next login. Software updates typically take place every 6-8 weeks.
