1.2 Service Level Managed Incidents

The purpose of our service levels is to ensure that the proper elements and commitments are in place to provide consistent IT service support services to Clients.

1.2.1 Service Availability
Coverage parameters specific to the support services covered are as follows:
  • Support Portal: Monitored 12:00 A.M. to 11:59 P.M. Monday – Friday
    • On weekends (Saturday and Sunday), support requests received via the Support portal will be collected, and action will be taken within the next business working day.

    • Calls received on outside of normal business hours including weekends (Saturday and Sunday) will be collected and action will be taken within the next business working day.

1.3 Incident Prioritization

An important aspect of logging every incident is to agree and allocate an appropriate prioritization code – as this will determine how the incident is handled both by Moveware support tools and Moveware support staff.
Prioritization can normally be determined by taking into account both the Urgency of the incident (how quickly the business needs a resolution) and the level of Impact it is causing. An indication of impact is often (but not always) the number of users being affected. In some cases, and very importantly, the loss of service to a single user can have a major business impact – it all depends upon who is trying to do what – so numbers alone are not enough to evaluate overall priority.

1.3.1 Moveware Priority Coding
Urgency Impact
High Medium Low
High 1 2 3
Medium 2 3 4
Low 3 4 4

1.3.2 Support Priority Response Levels
In the following table, "Response Time" is defined as the time between receipt of the call, and support ticket and the time that a Moveware Support team member begins working on the problem.

Important: Due to the diversity of problems which may require technical support, and the methods needed to resolve them, Response Time IS NOT defined as the time between the receipt of a call and problem resolution. The Response Time starts immediately upon receipt of your incident report.

Priority 1 Response within 1 hour
Priority 2 Response within 4 hours
Priority 3 Response within 1 business day
Priority 4 Response within 2 business days
