Levels of Support and Service
Level 0 - Raxar will provide training manuals, training videos and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for users to access and resolve information on their own rather than have to contact a local Helpdesk or Service Desk for resolution. This resource will be in addition to the on-site training that all employees receive, terms may not apply to all company inspectors because of volume of users and coordinating schedules for an on-site training.
Level 1 - The initial support level is responsible for basic Customer issues. This level is synonymous with first-line support and will be provided by Customer internal IT and Administrative staff. This level of support includes front-end support. Level 1 support includes gathering Customer information to determine the Customer’s issue by analyzing the symptoms to figuring out the underlying problem. The technician will be provided training from Raxar to be able to identify issues with hardware, operating system and the software. Level 1 technician(s) will do their best to analyze the symptoms to identify the underlying problem. Raxar will provide training to network administrators to provide user name, email and password change requests in addition to complete system configurations. Level 1 support will also be responsible for basic troubleshooting, software instillation and hardware repair. In the event that a problem cannot be resolved with Level 1 support; a Level 1 support technician only has the ability to escalate to Level 2 support.
Level 2 – This level of support is a more in-depth technical support level than Level 1 and as a result more experienced and knowledgeable technicians must be leveraged. Level 2 Support will be provided by Raxar only under the condition that Level 0 and Level 1 has been exhausted. Level 2 Support will be available on a continuous basis as need. Level 2 Support provides administrative level support and various other headings denoting advanced technical troubleshooting and analysis methods. Level 2 Technicians will be responsible for assisting Level 1 Technician in solving basic technical problems and for investigating elevated issues by confirming the validity of the problem and seeking for known solutions related to more complex issues. Level 1 Technicians will clearly document how long they have been working with a particular user and track trouble shooting solutions and suggestions via the Ticketing System. In the event that Level 2 Support cannot resolve the issue, the Ticket will be escalated to Level 3 Support.
Level 3 – This level of support is the highest level of support and is designated for the most difficult and advanced problems. Level 3 Support will be provided by Raxar during Operational Business Hours and can only be engaged by Level 2 Support Technicians from Raxar. Level 3 Support will support back-end development (data center, email, file sharing, infrastructure, network and servers) and issues pertaining to source code. These individuals are experts in the development of the software and are able to assist in high-end support and various other headings denoting expert level troubleshooting and analysis methods. Level 3 Technicians are responsible for reviewing tickets generated by Level 1 and Level 2 Technicians. If possible, the Level 3 Technician will work to solve the problem with the Customer as it may become apparent that the Level 1 and/or Level 2 Technicians simply failed to discover the proper solution. Upon encountering a new issue, Level 3 Personnel must first determine whether or not to solve the problem and may require Customer contact information to work directly with Level 1 Technicians on-site to troubleshoot the issue and find a solution.
