Service Levels


The Technical Support Help Desk (Support Team) is the single point of contact for all Service users on a daily basis, and is performance managed to ensure that all incidents and service requests are handled effectively and efficiently.


The core function of the Support Team are:

  • To pick up calls from the queueing system
  • Assign a Case number and log the call onto the customer account
  • Provide 1st line support
  • Advise customer of available updates
  • Escalate cases when and where required
  • Provide progress updates to Customer
  • Close all resolved cases when customer has confirmed their satisfaction.


For support options please refer to Service Availability above.


The Support Desk will be manned from 09:00 hrs to 17:00hrs each week day by 1st Line Technicians. All contact will enter a queueing system and will be answered in order of contact being received and case numbers will be allocated and recorded.

1st Line Technicians are expected to resolve 80% of cases within 1 hour of the call being answered.


Support Desk KPI’s include:

  • 95% of calls are resolved on the initial contact
  • Average time of 15 minutes to resolve a case at 1st line contact
  • 98% user satisfaction, via after-call survey, with the handling and outcome of the call.


Line / Tier Escalation

Where a case cannot be immediately resolved by the 1st Line Technicians, it will be channelled to the appropriate technical support level or product specialist. The caller will be advised by the Support Desk as soon as a solution is found, and/or kept informed of progress where appropriate. If contact is made by email or call logging, the Customer must make best efforts to ensure availablity when the Service Provider calls to provide support.


  • 2nd line/tier            Escalation to 2nd line from 1st line will be confirmed by an acknowledgement of the case being received.
  • Development        Escalation from 2nd line will be confirmed by an acknowledgment of receipt of the case being received.


Upon escalation, cases are weighted according to the severity based feedback from the Customer. The weighting can change through the life cycle of a case


In support of services outlined in the SLA, the Service Provider will respond and provide resolution to service related incidents and/or requests submitted by the Customer within the following timeframes:


Severity Level

Case Description

Target Response Time

Target Resolution Time


Critical Service Impact: The case affects the whole system e.g.: system is not operational, data integrity at risk, lost data, failed recovery

0-8 working hours

Within 2 working hours


Significant Service Impact: The case seriously affects the working of the system and no acceptable workaround is available

Within 2 working days

Within 5 working hours


Low Service Impact: The case affects individual users and the service is still functioning e.g.: a work around is available, document issues, general questions, enhancement requests.

Response does not represent a solution as some cases may require a longer resolution period. Response time means we will advise of our attention and when possible provide an estimation for the next point of contact.



If any issues arise as a result of 3rd party, or local infrastructure, failure or impact, Lexacom will advise on an appropriate course of action.  At this point the case will be closed pending further updates from the Customer and/or 3rd party. The case will be re-opened if the cause of such issues have been resolved and further assistance is required.


Remote assistance will be provided in-line with the above timescales dependant on the priority of the support request and the customer allowing access. Customer resources are expected to be available and willing to work with the Service Provider to resolve issues.   


Out of hours support can be arranged on a per client and per case basis, at additional cost to the Customer.
