|Software add-on or extension||Yes|
|What software services is the service an extension to||Slack|
|Cloud deployment model||Private cloud|
|Service constraints||Support is not restricted to any specific hardware configuration. Organisations already using Slack will benefit the most, since your team are already using the tool every day and can log how they feel without even needing to move from one screen to another|
|System requirements||Software relies on Slack being installed and in use|
|Email or online ticketing support||Email or online ticketing|
|Support response times||Since real-time mood measurement is not typically a business critical system at the hour-by-hour level, we provide support within normal UK working business hours to keep your costs down and you can expect a response to a normal user query within a couple of hours. This support level is however supplemented by out of hours alerting to ensure the system is always up and running|
|User can manage status and priority of support tickets||No|
|Web chat support||No|
|Onsite support||Yes, at extra cost|
Support is provided within UK normal business hours only (with the exception of alerting to ensure no prolonged system outage).
Critical incidents will be prioritised and handled immediately within working hours, while general queries and issues affecting individual users will see a response within 24 hours.
Additional feature requests will be discussed with the client and prioritised as appropriate in agreement together.
|Support available to third parties||Yes|
Onboarding and offboarding
|Getting started||We provide onsite support to help your team understand how to use the software if desired (it is very intuitive, so often this is not required) as well as providing onsite, telephone or email support with your Slack administrator to ensure they are comfortable with the install of the Slack plug-in. This usually only takes a couple of hours including the configuration of the team and roles. Typically we will provide ongoing support by way on onsite visits or conference calls throughout the early stages to ensure effective adoption and to help your team leaders get the best out of the information they are seeing. Your success is our success, so we work hard to ensure that all of your users know how to use the software and tips to keep it very simple.|
|End-of-contract data extraction||The information stored within the Keefinty software is anonymous and we will never share any personal information. However, any anonymous charts and extracts from the data can be downloaded directly from the system at any time during the contract and kept by users for as long as they remain useful. No personal data is included or stored.|
|End-of-contract process||Software is provided as a service and the end of contract is very simple; access is revoked to the Keefinty data stores and functionality. No work is required by the client.|
Using the service
|Web browser interface||Yes|
|Application to install||Yes|
|Compatible operating systems||
|Designed for use on mobile devices||Yes|
|Differences between the mobile and desktop service||Since Keefinty real-time mood measurement is integrated with Slack, the user interface varies between devices in accordance with Slack's policy and design. The features are available via any device with Slack installed where the user is logged into Slack and their relevant workspace. Charts showing information are sized according to device and easy to see and decipher on any device.|
|Description of customisation||
Many elements of Keefinty realtime mood measurement can be configured, for example team roles, which data is most commonly used, which features are enabled (all are enabled in a standard implementation) or perhaps timescales for charts are linked to e.g. your sprint cycle, to save you having to select a time period each time.
Customisation beyond this e.g. a bespoke branded user experience can be discussed together as chargeable additions and prioritised according to business desires.
|Independence of resources||Concurrent user figures are considered holistically, rather than just for one specific organisation at a time to ensure that your organisation will not be affected by the demands of other organisations. User numbers are defined upfront and so demand is straightforward to manage.|
|Service usage metrics||Yes|
Number of users, frequency of use, how often emotions (which may be emojis or free text or similar) have been logged, how often charts and or data extracts are downloaded.
We use those metrics to understand the breadth of adoption and also help you as an organisation check that your team leads are using the information that is available to them.

Availability and resilience
Our SLA for system availability is 99.9% (although we have never had an outage yet). Support is provided in UK business hours only, but alerting out of hours ensures the system can be restarted if need be.
No refund would be provided for any downtime out of those support hours, but would be provided pro-rata for any time the system could not be used in office hours. This would typically and most easily be done as a discount against the next invoice payable.
|Approach to resilience||This information is available on request, since it may vary should clients have a preferred data centre or similar that they wish to use.|
|Outage reporting||Any outages are identified through our own ongoing alerting and notification provided to clients by email, with any resolution action where applicable.|

|Other user authentication||All authentication is handled through Slack and conforms to their authentication standards and approach. 2-factor authentication can be switched on in Slack where desired by the organisation.|
|Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels||Keefinty operates a role-based system, with access levels defined and agreed with the organisation. These can be updated as appropriate by the Organisation's own Slack administrator. In addition, Keefinty ensure roles are reviewed on a quarterly basis to ensure access is appropriately restricted.|

|Configuration and change management standard||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|
|Configuration and change management approach||
Any changes to components offered within our service are assessed at the outset not only for capability but any potential security impacts. Threat modelling is completed as standard and potential security risks addressed before the first line of code is written.
In addition to component changes, our data housekeeping approach ensures that access rights remain current and old data is fully cleared (although no personal data is stored within this anyway).
|Vulnerability management type||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|
|Vulnerability management approach||
Potential threats are identified and monitored against the OWASP top 10 and any components (hardware or software) are reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure compliance and a high level of security.
Any vulnerability takes precedence over other feature build activity, with appropriate patches for high risk vulnerabilities installed within 24 hours.
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||The Keefinty solution is monitored 24:7 by a reputable third party in the industry both to ensure up-time and highlight any potential compromises or security issues. Potential compromises and/or incidents are prioritised ahead of any other service work and clients are notified where any work is required to rectify a problem, along with timeframe and action required to resolve.|
|Incident management type||Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402|

For any critical incidents (system outage) an email report is shared with clients along with any remedial action if required.
