The purpose of this guide is to explain the Training and Consultation Terms and Conditions.
Training and Consultation is not included in the Support Service Agreement and is chargeable by the minute. The current price per minute is $3ex gst and unless agreed upon in a quote or as part of a packaged price, the consultation time will be invoiced to you.
Technical Support covers errors in the program and gives you access to program updates and resources. If an issue or ticket requires a further investigation how a user may have caused the error or where user training is needed, the ticket referred to a Consultant no longer abides by the required service response times. It is then up to the discretion of the Autosoft Consultant to advise if your ticket can be resolved or further consultation and therefore charges will be necessary.
