Customer Support Hours
Our support team is available during working hours Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm (excluding all federal holidays for which the “after-hours and emergency” protocol takes effect). After hours and emergency (emergencies are defined as service outages caused by hosted system) situations are handled by emailing email@example.com which is sent to our on-call support personnel.
We will not inform you of a planned service outage or minor incidents of unplanned outage outside of normal business hours. In the event of a major service outage (where the Service is expected to be unavailable during normal business hours) we will endeavor to inform you of the problem using the email address supplied to us. Service Downtime is measured from the time a Case is raised with us by you until the Service is restored. Downtime does not include any element associated with any problem on your infrastructure or the internet but refers exclusively to the Hosted Business Telephony Service.
