Getting started
We include on-boarding and training in all our packages.

With our comprehensive on-boarding process - our Customer Success team works with your organisation to design a custom metadata schema, determine user groups and permissions.

We schedule remote one to one remote training for administrators using Zoom. Each session around an hour in length, typically spread over 1 to 2 weeks allowing time for private learning and practice. These can also be carried out on-site if you are able to cover travel costs.

We can also ship the data on a physical medium and would charge only the cost of the media and shipping for this service.
End-of-contract process

The API is RESTful and therefore familiar to many developers.

The vast majority of the system elements can be customised, such as colours, brand/logo, metadata fields, resource types, all aspects of permissions/access, which features are enabled (and to who), and so on. Configurability is a core differentiator for ResourceSpace.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
We guarantee recovery in 3 hours, 24/7.
We have no global refund policy but these have been worked in to specific customer contracts. The typical approach is to give free contract extensions (e.g. 1 day contract extension for every 30 minutes of outage).
Approach to resilience
Each server is configured with RAID 10 for data redundancy on the production system. We can recover to a second server at a geographically separate site quickly as we have a full RAID 5 standby copy synchronised every hour at a minimum. We have additional offsite and offline backups (the specific details of those are intentionally confidential).
Outage reporting
We have internal monitoring and dashboard display. We announce outages to customers via e-mail alerts. As we have the monitoring data this is something we can make available to customers on request.

Identity and authentication

User authentication needed
User authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Identity federation with existing provider (for example Google Apps)
  • Username or password
Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels
For ResourceSpace itself, the management interface can be accessed via a number of different SSO / SAML providers, or at a more basic level via LDAP. Furthermore basic username/password authentication is provided as a default - this is always over a secured TLS connection.
For our customer extranet used for the provision of support, e-mail and password is used to gain access over a TLS secured connection.
Access restriction testing frequency
At least every 6 months
Management access authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Public key authentication (including by TLS client certificate)
  • Identity federation with existing provider (for example Google Apps)
  • Limited access network (for example PSN)
  • Dedicated link (for example VPN)
  • Username or password
  • Other
