Priority Support

At GroupDocs, we pride ourselves on the quality of our technical support. We put a huge amount of effort into our support operation to ensure that our customers get the help they need.

We run our support service in a very fair “first come, first served” basis. Users post issues in the support forums, and the support team answer them in the order they come in. We never prioritize customers on name or size. This model works very well for the vast majority of our customers.

As GroupDocs has grown, we have an increasing number of customers who need prioritized support. These customers often have needs linked to a deadline and require extra attention to help solve any problems. Our standard support model does not cater for these customers as well as we would like. To help them, we introduced Priority Support.

Priority Support Benefits

Priority support builds on our free support service, but gives its users access to the following benefits:

Availability

Priority Support is offered to customers on our Developer license types (Developer Small Business and Developer OEM). Site license customers are offered Enterprise Support.

Buying Priority Support gives you access to the enhanced support option for a year.

You can buy Priority Support when you buy a new product license, or when renewing your existing subscription. If you are part way through a subscription and wish to buy Priority Support, please contact our sales.

Pricing

Priority support is priced based on the license type you hold:

If you have several licenses and products, you only need to buy one support subscription to cover all products. Priority Support in this case is priced for the highest-value license type. We only support products that have valid product subscriptions.

How do I access the Priority Support Forum?

If you have purchased Priority Support, you can access the Priority Support forum from inside our support forums.

Conditions

Priority Support guarantees an initial response within 24 hours of an issue being raised during business days. We cannot guarantee a complete resolution in this timescale but you will get an assessment of the issue. Where we can, we provide simple fixes and work-arounds immediately. Issues that demand a fix can take longer. Hotfixes can be provided in consultation with the customer. Large fixes are prioritized and fed into the normal product development cycle. No guarantee can be made to the delivery date of the fix.

Access to the Priority Support forum is limited to the account that the subscription was purchased under. At this time no other accounts can be associated with a Priority Support purchase.

Priority Support is subject to a fair usage policy of 6 issues being raised in any 365 day period. (By issue we mean a new Priority Support thread opened in the Priority Support forum.) If several unrelated issues are opened in one Priority Support thread then these are split into separate threads and each counts towards your usage quota.

These conditions are subject to change without notice.

GroupDocs reserves the right to discontinue technical support for all or individual products at any time.

1 Hotfixes and feature requests, if supplied, are only built on the latest version of the product in question. Versions other than the latest version of the software are not supported in this way.
