Why is it important to renew annual maintenance support?
Maintenance support provides you with peace of mind that professional engineers will attend to any errors or problems you may encounter with the overall solution ensuring that there is minimal if any impact on your operation.
We are proud of the fact that our solution is stable and rarely need any support fixes. In order to maintain the highest quality level and ensure that our solution complies to all requirements, we re-invest maintenance support revenue in the onward development of our product. Customers who have maintenance support thus realise this benefit by receiving free upgrades.
We also have example profiles for all the major payment associations and some national payment schemes which can be used as starting point by our customers. Our automated test environment is available for all customers who have a valid maintenance support contract. By utilising this service, it will enable you, to make sure that any P3 upgrade will not have a negative impact on your operations.
