When reporting an issue, Customer must provide License ID and Server S/N for system identification and SLA verification purposes.
  • Support Process
    If the Reseller cannot resolve the support issue, Customer or Reseller should contact GLOOKAST and log the issue using: An internal ticket number will be created, and the case will be referred to the appropriate GLOOKAST team member. The support representative will send an initial report back to the Customer via email or via telephone. Most bug fixes or workarounds identified can be remotely implemented. GLOOKAST may require remote VPN access to make the fix. If it is jointly decided by GLOOKAST and Customer that an on-site visit is required, the costs of that visit will be agreed upon beforehand and may include reasonable T&L expenses.
  • Support Hours
    Support personnel are distributed around the globe and cover most of the time zones. To provide telephone, email, and remote access support for reporting, correcting and resolving issues GLOOKAST will maintain records of all reported issues made by Customer personnel. Standard coverage times are 8x5 (9am US Eastern – 6pm US Eastern) with response times set forth in “Response and Resolution Times” section below, and advanced shipment of replacement parts in the case of an RMA (when appropriate; i.e. when Customer purchased system turnkey from GLOOKAST and system has active extended hardware warranty). Coverage times available to you may exceed the standard mentioned above; if that is the case, it will be noted in your SLA renewal quote. Given our team’s geo-distributed nature, it is very common to have SLA coverage hours that go beyond 8x5.
  • Escalation Process

For those cases the GLOOKAST support team will evaluate the need for an internal escalation to the Development team that will analyze it and provide a Workaround or and ETA for the fix, the fix may be delivered as a temporary patch or a full new release of the product.
