Support levels we offer
We offer flexible engagement models enabling you to choose the degree of support customers need. Our support is organized and offered at three, distinct levels, depending upon the nature and complexity of issues, we are commissioned to address. These Levels are:
Level 1 (L1) Support
The responsibility of L1 Support is to register and classify received incidents and to undertake an immediate effort in order to restore a failed IT Service as quickly as possible. If no ad-hoc solution can be achieved, L1 Support will transfer the incident to expert technical support groups (Level 2 Support). 1st Level Support also processes Service Requests and keeps users informed about their Incidents' status at agreed intervals.
Level 2 (L2) Support
Level 2 Support takes over incidents that cannot be solved immediately with the means of Level 1 Support. Detailed analysis and trouble-shooting of the incident is done at this level using the trace files, log files and data integrity checks. If necessary, L2 support team will request L3 support for further analysis, e.g. from internal software development teams or product vendors.
Level 3 (L3) Support
Level 3 Support is provided by the software development and maintenance team that has the authority and ability to debug, change source code and provide a defect fix if needed.
