Choose Your Support Level
There are three support levels available: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Orchard’s technical support is available via phone, online, or email 24/7/365. The Technical Support Center is fully staffed Monday through Friday, from 7am to 7pm Eastern Time, with the exception of holidays. During weekends, evenings, and holidays, a limited staff is available for frontline support to address critical support issues.
Support Response Times
Orchard utilizes a support ticket system to log issues as they arrive. Technical Support Specialists return customer calls within the callback times defined in their Service-level Agreement (SLA). During business hours, approximately 98% of all opened tickets are responded to within two hours. During off hours, approximately 98% are responded to within four hours.
One-on-one technical assistance from our highly proficient support team is available whenever you need guidance. Also, with any of our support options, software upgrades are included and available as they are released for installation at your convenience.
Orchard Special Project Packages
Each Orchard support level includes support for projects, such as software upgrades; however, the depth of Orchard involvement is dependent on the level you choose.
Orchard’s Basic Upgrade Project package is included with Silver and Gold support. Projects are scheduled with Orchard’s support team and a simple project plan is provided and followed. Project start and completion are communicated via email.
Orchard’s Premium Upgrade Project is included with Platinum support, but can be purchased with other support levels, if desired. A premium project includes a more detailed project plan, ongoing communication, and assignment of a dedicated Technical Support Specialist.
