See information under Paid column.

Case Closure

Axio Technical Support is committed to resolving all technical support inquiries in a timely and satisfactory manner. Due to the communicative nature of the troubleshooting process, it is necessary for the technical support engineer and the customer to participate in the process. When a support engineer or customer relations representative cannot successfully reach a customer via email or phone either when questions are asked, or when a solution is provided after three (3) attempts (both email and phone) over a minimum of three (3) business days or the customer has not notified Axio of an out of office situation the case will be closed. Customers can contact Axio support within ten business days and have the case re-opened.

Re-Opening a Closed Case

If the same issue occurs within ten (10) business days, the case can be re-open by calling Axio support and referencing the original case number. In these instances, the case will be assigned to the same representative or escalated if required.

Normal case closure occurs when:

  • The customer reports the issue is resolved and the case can be closed.
  • Customer reports they no longer have the problem and agrees to close the case.
  • An acceptable workaround has been provided.

Escalation Procedures

Every issue is tracked from the time you contact us until we mutually agree that the issue has been resolved. Based on the priority of an issue, Axio Support escalates customer cases through our organization to ensure your business-critical issues receive a quick resolution. If you are not satisfied with the responsiveness of our Support staff, the issue can be escalated by reaching out to [email protected], which will get to our VP of Support, or by reaching out to your Axio account executive.

Scope of Support

The Axio support agreement is limited to investigating Axio product behavior to determine any of the following:

  • Answer questions related to product features, options, and limitations.
  • Isolate, document, and find workarounds for reported software defects.
  • Work with the engineering team to provide product fixes.
  • Supply customers with general advice and best practices information regarding Axio products.

While Axio products work with third-party systems, such as ServiceNow, etc., we recommend customers have a support contract with such vendors. Axio Technical Support will provide best effort when working with third-party software.

Activities such as, but not limited to, assistance with setup and configuration or customization of 3rd party products integrated with Axio360 are also not covered under this agreement.

Product & Support Lifecycle Policies

The Axio Product and System Support Lifecycle Policies are designed to provide customers with a clear understanding of the type and duration of support they can expect for licensed Axio solutions. We continually monitor customer needs and review industry advancements to focus our attention on providing quality service. Axio360 is a SaaS offering that is updated uniformly for all customers, there is no need or possibility of supporting older versions of the platform. All Axio customers are by default on the latest version of the platform.

Axio Cloud Service Maintenance

Axio performs occasional platform updates after 9pm ET or on weekends. In cases where this will impact customers adversely, we will notify customers in advance of this maintenance via email (and via notifications in the product in future iterations of the product).

It may be necessary for Axio to perform Cloud Service Maintenance outside the specified timing for emergency fixes. In such cases, Axio will make every effort to notify customers in advance (24 hours) of these emergency fixes.

Due to evolving technology, updates and changes are periodically necessary to improve our reliability and uptime. Axio will take all necessary measures to avoid downtime.
