What are the hours of Support?
Support is provided 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Melbourne time, Monday to Friday.
Are there dedicated Account Managers?
SupportAbility does not use dedicated account managers or customer service liaisons. We ensure that all members of our Customer Success team have an understanding of each of our subscribers, especially those in the implementation process. We provide all our customers with equal priority support via our helpdesk ticketing system.
Does SupportAbility have SLA's (Service Level Agreements)?
We do not provide SLA’s on support response times however, we triage and prioritise all incoming support requests and responses are usually provided in a timely manner based on the priority of the query.
Can any Staff Member contact SupportAbility for assistance?
First-tier support must be provided by an organisation's Authorised Representatives. In addition to this, system training must also be provided by the subscribing organisation. If an Authorised Representative is unable to resolve a user request, they are required to escalate the issue/enquiry on behalf of the Staff Member via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unlimited second-tier email support is included as part of your SupportAbility subscription, provided all support queries are managed internally first and channelled via these individuals when escalation is required.
What is the role of Authorised Representatives?
We require each subscribing organisation to appoint up to two Authorised Representatives to act as the dedicated spokespersons to represent your organisation in all matters.
- provision Staff with access to SupportAbility and assign the appropriate privileges/access for their roles and responsibilities
- provide system training to Staff
- provider first-tier level support to Staff
- escalate enquiries/issues on their behalf to SupportAbility
- promptly report any system operation errors/issues to SupportAbility
