3. Telephone support

Micro Consulting provides the Customer with a telephone assistance service, available every working day, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is a response service to ad hoc questions that can be resolved in minutes. Calls are received at the normal telephone rate and are not surcharged. This service may require, for better efficiency, the installation and use by the Customer of a remote maintenance program, without this being an obligation. Micro Consulting assumes the costs of the commercial operation of the remote maintenance program; the operation of said program is free for the Customer. Questions can also be sent by the “Technical Support” command in the Software, or by e-mail. An answer will be given as soon as possible. Micro Consulting does not guarantee immediate access or permanent availability of the assistance service, but does everything possible to ensure it in the best conditions.

Free telephone assistance can only be provided on the latest version of the Software (s), or on a version less than one year old. The assistance service is intended to resolve problems relating to the day-to-day use of the Software, when the accompanying documentation is not sufficiently explicit or when an error message is encountered. The service provides guidance on how to deal with the problem but does not do the work for the Customer in its place. Where applicable, the Customer will be requested to refer to the documentation. Helpdesk is not a substitute for training. When the service requested by the Customer is outside the scope of free assistance, the intervention will be invoiced.
