Scope & Exclusions
The service level target scope covers all supported users and infrastructure in the Services scope.
Infrastructure will be evaluated by StormWarden and conﬁrmed that it meets a quality standard that will be covered by the service level targets.
Third Party Platforms & Applications
Third party supplied platforms and applications are not covered by the SLA as they are subject to issues and impacts outside of the control of Stormwarden.
StormWarden is committed to providing quality support to client issues. Success is measured using the ‘time to ﬁrst response’ metric to ensure that incidents are attended to promptly.
StormWarden does not measure the ‘time to resolution’ as a success metric as each issue is different and requires different responses to resolve.
The following time frames are deﬁned as a successful time to ﬁrst response.
- Within 4 hours for issues classiﬁed as Very High Priority.
- Within 8 hours (during business hours) for issues classiﬁed as High priority.
- Within 3 working days for issues classiﬁed as Medium priority.
- Within 5 working days for issues classiﬁed as Low priority.
StormWarden is also committed to a high standard of achieving these targets and aims for no less than a 90% success rate for each of these priority levels.
Very High Priority Example
Issues Impacting Operations (sales, warehousing & invoicing).
High Priority Example
Issues Impacting Support Staff (administration & ﬁnance month end).
Medium Priority Example
Issues that are causing general disruption to the business across multiple users.
Low Priority Example
Issues that are localised to single users or non-critical infrastructure services outlined above.
Support requests can be raised 24 x 7 via the following channels:
- Emailing email@example.com.
- Visiting https://helpdesk.stormwarden.io and submitting via web form.
- Using the support tool on the computer (if installed).
Support agents working hours are 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M (Monday to Friday) and performance management timings only apply during these times.
After Hours Support
Support requested out of oﬃce hours can be obtained by calling the main oﬃce switchboard and best efforts will be made to answer and action the call.
Issues that are not a high priority that are raised out of hours will attract an additional rate of $150 per hour or part thereof.
All requests must be initiated through the designated support channels.
Direct phone calls or walk up conversations to support agents will not be covered by the SLA and support assistance may be refused until an oﬃcial request has been received.
Reasonable availability of customer representative(s) when resolving a service-related incident or request.
Payment for all support costs at the agreed interval.
StormWarden monitors and reviews the performance of support provided each month and can provide a monthly report upon request.
StormWarden reserves the right to periodically review the terms of the SLA provided to the Client and will notify of any changes with no less than 30 days notice.
