Protect your IT investments. Keep pace with technology changes.

Typically, a Maintenance and Support Plan is purchased at the time of your initial Attachmate software purchase and is renewed annually by your Maintenance anniversary. You can add licenses to your Maintenance and Support Plan(s) as you acquire new Attachmate products. Each Attachmate product must be covered by its own Maintenance and Support Plan. Maintenance and Support for a specified product must be purchased for all license units of that product.

Customers with a Maintenance and Support Plan receive support for their products at a level defined by the Attachmate Product Support Lifecycle.

Target Response Time

The Elite Maintenance and Support Plan targets a one-hour response time to your service requests during regular Attachmate business hours. After hours, Elite 24x7 Add-On customers can expect a one-hour target response time for Severity 1** issues.

With the Basic Maintenance and Support plan, Technical Support responds to service requests based on the severity and impact of the problem. See the Guide to Working with Support for details.

24x7 optional add-on available

If you have the Elite 24x7 Add-On, during regular Attachmate business hours your call will be forwarded to your Support Analyst. Support is available to you after hours if you have a Severity 1** issue. Call the toll-free phone number to speak to an operator at a messaging service. Once your plan is verified, the operator will record your description of the problem, which will be played back to the Technical Account Manager (TAM) who receives the call. The TAM will then contact you within a one-hour target.
