Maintenance and Support explained

What is the Maintenance and Support plan?

In short, it’s a contract, tied to a software license, that entitles customers to the following:

  • All updates/upgrades to all minor and major versions released during the subscription coverage period
  • Email support, documentation, and knowledge base access
  • Remote assistance support (up to 3 incidents a year when deemed necessary by Syncplify support staff)

Given the above, it is therefore important to understand what incidents are:

  • if the software is misbehaving, or you have identified a bug, that is an incident
  • if you simply don’t know how to do something, that’s not an incident, and we kindly ask you to – please – read the documentation and search the knowledge base before contacting our support team (we’re deeply grateful for your understanding)

The cost for a maintenance/support plan is typically 30% of the license MSRP. However, if you select multiple years of maintenance and support during your license purchase process, a discount is applied based on the number of years you wish to pre-pay for. So, for example, if you buy a single Basic license ($349) your annual optional subscription cost will be $104.70; another example: if you buy 2 Professional licenses without WebClient! ($849 each, total $1698) your annual optional subscription cost will be $509.40 ($254.70 * 2).
