All clients are assigned an account manager that guides through the implementation and go-live process. The majority of implementation work is performed remotely to minimise project costs.
We operate the same uniform support structure for all clients. We have a full documented structure for our cloud support engineers, which rotate on a weekly basis.
|Support available to third parties||Yes|
Onboarding and offboarding
Onboarding is through a mixture of remote and on-site implementation planning and training sessions.
A dedicated account manager works with each venue throughout their whole project lifecycle.
Full user documentation is provided, externally and within the product itself.
|End-of-contract data extraction||There are multiple methods of data extraction, commonly through excel or CSV downloads|
There is no additional cost at the end of the contract.
On the last day of the contract all user accounts are suspended. Data is retained for 90 days, unless specifically requested to be deleted during that time by authorised client representatives.
Using the service
|Web browser interface||Yes|

|What users can and can't do using the API||All Yesplan data can be read through Restful API calls over https delivering the data in JSON format.

|API documentation formats||
|API sandbox or test environment||No|
|Description of customisation||
Users can customise additional data fields, event statuses, colours within the calendar, profiles, booking types, resource organization, etc.. .
Users and Groups can be assigned profiles that allow them to see, view or edit data down to a per field level.
Customisation can be performed by users, with some basic training, allowing for a full customised solution to be delivered.
|Independence of resources||Each client runs on their own application layer, along with own database, resulting in service levels remaining independent of other clients.|

Availability and resilience
Uptime guarantee of 99,9%
No refunding policy is specified.
|Approach to resilience||The service is hosted on virtual servers running on a cloud platform with built-in redundancy and automated failover. This platform is hosted in a tier-3++ datacentre with physical access control security. Data storage uses RAID-10 configurations and the network has redundant tier-1 connections. We perform full data backups every 24h and incremental backups every 2h to off-site locations (other datacentres) to prevent data-loss in the case of calamities at the datacentre.|
In case of announced service outages, users are notified by messages in the application; generally one week before the service window.
Unintended outages are reported via email. A public dashboard is under construction.
Identity and authentication
|User authentication needed||Yes|
|User authentication||Username or password|
|Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels||Only users with the administration role have access to the management interface|

|Information security policies and processes||An internal security policy is outlined, based on standards but not conforming to one at this time.|
|Configuration and change management standard||Supplier-defined controls|
|Configuration and change management approach||All components are tracked in a source-code management and configuration system. Updates to any of the components (internal or third-party) are subjects to automated and manual testing in development and staging environments before being put into production.|
|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Vulnerability management approach||For each layer of our technology stack (OS, http server, application platform, libraries, etc), we observe the releases and patches that are published on a regular basis to assess needs for patches. Critical patches that compromise security of our services are deployed as soon as possible, typically within weeks after patches become available.|
|Protective monitoring type||Undisclosed|
|Protective monitoring approach||System-level logs are gathered and analysed on a by-need basis.|
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||All incidents are handled in a standard workflow. Users can report incidents via the helpdesk (or by telephone for urgent matters outside office hours), but automated logging of incidents in the application is performed as well. Once the urgency of the incident is assessed, a stand-by engineer will examine and resolve the incident in a timely manner according to the importance of the incident. Incident reports are available on-request, or may be publicly posted if needed.|
