Definitions

  • Business Hoursare defined as 08.00-24.00h CET 7/7, 365/365.
  • Office Hoursare defined as 09.00-17.00h CET, excluding weekends and official Belgian holidays.
  • Resolution Time is the time between the moment the Selligent Support Team started to act on a posted (and – if applicable – activated) support ticket and the moment the problem is resolved, excluding the time the team has spent waiting for customer’s input.

In some cases the team will implement a temporary solution to restore operations in the short term and schedule other actions to fix the problem on a structural level. In such cases the Resolution Time ends after the implementation of the temporary solution.

Support Requests

All requests for the Selligent Interactive Marketing Support Team should be created using the “create ticket” function on the support portal (http://support.selligent.com). Customers receive credentials to log on to the customer support portal after the installation of their platform.

The default language used on the support system is English, but Dutch or French can also be used. The Selligent Support Team will answer tickets in the incoming language or English.

The support system can be used to report three types of Support Requests:

  • Defect Report: Reports a defect of existing functionality of the platform, decreased performance or availability issues.
  • Change Request: Requests a change in the platform configuration.
  • Information Request: Question on how to use the platform, best practices, general information.

The system supports four levels of priority. The priority level is initially assigned by the customer but can be re-evaluated by Selligent based on the content or the urgency of a request. The delivery of a temporary solution might decrease the priority level of a ticket.

  • Business Critical: A situation is causing significant damage or will do so in the very near future. The request needs utmost priority.
  • Urgent: A situation is important and needs to be handled with priority.
  • Normal: Basic Support Request, handled with normal priority.
  • Low: Support Requests that are not time critical and can be handled with a lower priority.

The table below gives an overview of the type of Support Requests and the accepted priorities:

  • inappropriate use of the platform by the customer;
  • external components or third party software that were installed on the request of the customer, even after they are validated by Selligent;
