Overview of Ivanti Customer Support Services
Ivanti offers a range of customer service and support levels to meet your operational requirements. Customers who purchase a maintenance contract get to participate in a tiered support program. The levels of the program have been carefully designed to ensure that customers receive the service they need and deserve. If additional support is still desired, upgrade options are available.
Three levels of support are available: Standard, Enhanced, and Premium. All support levels include software upgrade protection, proactive technical support updates via email or RSS feeds, and access to the Ivanti Community.
Support Program Details
Ivanti Standard Support is a renewable annual support agreement that provides software upgrade protection and self-directed support through the Ivanti Technical Community and available online documentation, including knowledge articles, white papers and forums for interaction with other Ivanti customers. Customers are also entitled to an unlimited number of incidents and can initiate a phone or web incident through our Customer Portal for processing during local business hours of the regional support center to which the Incident is initially reported.
Ivanti Enhanced Support is a renewable annual support agreement that improves upon the features and benefits of Standard Support. If you are an Enhanced level customer and you report a Priority Level 1 Incident that is not solved during Business Hours of the regional support center to which the Incident is initially reported, and the Incident requires around-the-clock work, Ivanti will transfer the Incident to other Support sites in the United States, Asia, and/or Europe as needed—as long as you have dedicated resources working alongside Ivanti on a 24x7 basis towards resolving the Incident. Phone support is also available outside of business hours including weekends and company holidays for Priority Level 1 issues.
When notifying Ivanti of any Incident, you must provide Ivanti with detailed information about any suspected Error(s), including an example, the context in which it was encountered, details of your system configuration, and the steps necessary to generate or reproduce the Error. The priority level of an Incident shall be determined by Ivanti in its sole discretion (using the priority definitions described in these terms).
If you are a Premium Support customer, you will be assigned a Support engineer who is skilled in supporting the Ivanti product for which you have purchased Premium Support. The Support engineer will be available during your normal business hours and be responsible for solving submitted Incidents. In case the Support engineer is not available for any reason, Ivanti will provide a backup engineer.
Premium Support customers will be provided direct access to a Support Manager who is available to manage escalated incidents, or to coordinate incidents across time zones for customers with multiple sites in different geographic locations.
Ivanti Smart Service Portal
A centerpiece of Ivanti Customer Support Services is the Smart Service Portal. Customers access this convenient online portal through the Ivanti Technical Community at https://success.ivanti.com/customers. Once logged in, self-directed customers benefit from key functionality, including the Solution Adviser.
The Solution Adviser assists customers who need quick and proven solutions to their problems. Using drop-down menus to answer a brief list of questions, customers are provided with a set of recommended solutions and resources, including:
- The top-rated solutions for a particular issue as determined by Ivanti experts and successful outcomes when used by other customers.
- Search results that direct a customer to relevant postings in the Ivanti Technical Community.
- Key articles such as Best-Known Methods (BKMs) and white papers with high-value content pertinent to the issue submitted.
Should the Solution Adviser not lead to the desired outcome, customers in the portal can submit a new case to the Ivanti customer support team electronically and track its resolution. Notes and attachments can be added to the incident and customers can request that Ivanti respond by phone or email.
Ivanti is committed to delivering high-quality products and technical support services to our customers and partners. If at any point you're not fully satisfied with the quality or level of service that you're receiving from Ivanti Support, then you should request that the support case be escalated for review by our Management team.
Customer Satisfaction Surveys
Customer feedback is an essential way to measure how well we are meeting expectations. Our Customer satisfaction surveys give you, the customer, the opportunity to provide Ivanti with valuable feedback to help us improve and evolve our offerings so that they match your needs. After a Support request is closed you are invited by email to complete a short survey about your recent support experience.
Available Support Upgrade Options
The default Ivanti maintenance program is Ivanti Standard support. Customers requiring the additional features of the Ivanti Enhanced Support offering may purchase an upgrade for a fixed fee.
Ivanti Premium Support offers customers a unique opportunity to be assigned to work directly with a specific support engineer and support manager as technical issues arise. This is an add-on service feature and can be purchased through your Account Sales Representative.
