Easy to Create, Easy to Change - Easy to use!

New Support Manager and new Support Products introduced

For a long time we have been focusing on improving our software products, but we have now entered a new phase where we will focus more and more on the entire customer experience.

One issue that has been raised more often than others is the lack of a dedicated support service so this is one of the areas were we will now focus.

Last month we hired Fatma Adel as our new Support Manager. She has now had some time to settle in and are more than eager to start helping you resolve your issues.

Technical Support

New User Support

On the New User Support page you will find helpful material for developers that are first learning to use DataEase 8. It includes sections for Issues and Bugs, FAQs, Resources (video scripts, images, etc.), and Contact Us.

Free Support

DataEase provides free product support for setup and installation issues for 30 days from the date of software purchase. This includes installation of your purchased software and the launch of that software to the opening screen. Because individual applications vary greatly and typically contain custom programming not provided by DataEase, we cannot provide free product support beyond this point.

If you need assistance with a software license issue, contact Customer Service.

If your software was purchased within the past 30 days and you need help with an installation problem, please contact customer service.

Paid Support

Product support for anything other than what is described above is available by purchasing a Support Incident below. Once you have purchased a Support incident, you can submit your issue to our support team.

If you are a software developer that requires continual support you might benefit from entering a support contract with us (See Support Contracts below).
 

Support Incident £89

Premium Support Incident £349

Mini Support Contract £166*(£199)/month.

Standard Support Contract £458*(£499)/month.

Professional Support Contract £875*(£949)/month.

Support Incident

A support incident is defined as a single support issue and the reasonable effort (not to exceed 1/2 hours) needed to resolve it. If a problem consists of subordinate issues, each shall be considered a separate incident. 

Premium Support Incident

A premium support incident is defined as a single support issue and the reasonable effort (not to exceed 2 1/2 hours) needed to resolve it. If a problem consists of subordinate issues, each shall be considered a separate incident.

Submitting Your Issue

Once you have purchased your support incident, please submit your issue—along with your order number—to our technical support staff by filling out the online support form.

Response Time

You will receive an acknowledgement email when you have submitted your support form. The resolution will normally be provided within 48 hours of the received form when received between 08:00 and 20:00 GMT Monday to Friday.

If there is an expected delay a notification with an estimated delivery time will be issued, the client will then be able to accept the new time or cancel the Incident Request.

Incident Resolution

An incident will be considered resolved when one of the following has been provided:

An incident resolution will not provide a custom written application or custom code.
 

Custom development services are available from DataEase Professional Service.

Refunds

Support incidents are non-refundable. If the resolution of an incident confirms that the cause is an unresolved and undocumented issue in a DataEase product, your support incident will be considered unused. However, if the issue is known and a software update has already been made publicly available, the incident will be consumed. An unused incident will remain available for use until its normal expiration date, which is typically 1 year from the purchase date.
