Support levels The SLA is based on priorities and time to respond for incident and requests, with escalation plans for incident.

Rather than give standard SLA that eventually won’t meet the customers' requirement we prefer that our support teams, local and remote, will define with the customer the priorities and the time to respond to incident and request.

When a ticket is raised with our helpdesk, a priority is assigned according to the urgency and impact of the support case.

Urgency: The urgency level is determined depending on how much functionality is
Urgency Definition

High Total/severe loss of business functionality, complete section/department affected, potential major clinical risk.

Medium Partial loss of business functionality.

Low Minor issue that does not impact business functionality.
Impact: The impact level is determined depending on the number of customers

Urgency Definition

High Whole organisation, trust, site or multiple sites; single large/multiple business units impacted.

Medium Group of users or one site affected.
Low One user affected.

The combination of impact and urgency will determine the priority.
