SLA – What it is?

Twitch Activate

Your service level agreements (SLAs), are documented to provide assurances to your customers. It also allows you to focus on the things that matter most. An SLA is more than a guideline. It’s a contract. You need to be proactive in managing your SLAs. ITarian’s SLA Managementautomatically prioritizes, tracks, and reports on the information you need to deliver on priorities efficiently by showing you which customer devices are supported, whether technicians are tracking their time correctly when renewals are due, and how much time is left on an agreement.

ITarian SLA management helps you:

  • Automate the management of client contracts and recurring billing, including cloud services, using service agreements.
  • Prioritize tickets based on service-delivery arrangements, establish unique response plans, determine resolution time frames, and use custom calendars or matrices for tracking progress
  • Automated alerts and workflows can help you prevent contract breaches.
  • Send renewal reminders automatically when contracts are close to expiring or when support balances run low
