Our support process aims to address three key pillars while supporting you namely:
Consistency – One repository, and one channel that everyone trusts and is accustomed to.
Traceability – Rich reporting, ticket status, and escalation to better understand our clients’ needs.
Accountability – Reciprocal accountability in addressing tickets in collaboration.
The primary channel for raising support, from initial report through final resolution, is through our online portal at. Please contact Augative via the contact us form to gain access to the support portal at www.augative.com
The first line of support lies within the Client organisation. The responsibility and onus to diagnose and resolve incidents arising within the software is the responsibility of the Client.
If the Client is unable to resolve the incident internal to the Client organisation, the Client will escalate the incident to the Augative Support Team via the Support Portal.
Incident: means each individual issue where the software is not conforming to the functionality as reported to Augative technical support by a Contact.
Contact: refers to qualified named person, knowledgeable in the Augative tool, and is a proficient user of the Software. The client is expected to make every effort to ensure that the individuals, who are designated as authorised Contacts, are qualified and trained to support their teams internally. After contacting Augative to set the Client up on the support portal, the Named Contact will be assigned.
Only designated, named Contacts, are able to submit incidents.
All incidents are submitted through the online portal.
In order to log and track the resolution of incidents, Augative expects that Contact will make every attempt possible to:
For each incident reported by the Contact in accordance with these procedures, Augative shall by means of best effort:
Augative will prioritise incidents according to the following priority level criteria:
|Critical Business Impact. The Contact’s use of the software is stopped or so severely degraded that the Contact cannot reasonably continue work related to the software and no workaround is available.
|4 business hours
|Substantial Business Impact. Important software features are unavailable with no workaround available. The Contact's use of the software is continuing; however, there is a serious impact on the Contact’s productivity.
|1 business day
|Some Business Impact. Important software features are unavailable, but a workaround is available, or less significant features are unavailable with no workaround. The Contact's work related to the software has a minor loss of operational functionality or implementation resources.
|2 business days
|Minimal Business Impact. The Contact requests information, an enhancement, or documentation regarding the software but there is no or a minimal impact on the operation of the software. The Contact’s use of the software is continuing and no work is being materially impeded at the time.
|3 business days

Escalations are only permitted on severity ‘High’ or ‘Urgent’ issues. Primary escalation procedure is to raise the issue with Client’s account manager and they will internally escalate.
Incidents shall be closed in the following manner:
For solvable issues, depending on the nature of the issue, the resolution may take the form of an explanation, recommendation, usage instructions, workaround instructions, or requiring the Contact to upgrade to an available software fix.
In the event that custom or unsupported plug-ins or modules are used, Augative may ask, in the course of attempting to resolve the issue, that the Contact remove any unsupported plug-ins or modules. If the problem disappears upon removal of an unsupported plug-in or module, then Augative may consider the issue to be resolved.
For issues outside of scope of support services, Augative may also close issues by identifying the incident as outside the scope of the support services.
Dropped issues, Augative may close a case if the Contact has not responded to two (2) attempts or more made by Augative to collect additional information required to solve the case.
We are fanatical about our support and strive to ensure that your business runs smoothly. As such, these guidelines will be updated to assist continuous support improvements.
