Communication Process

We strive to provide our customers a 99.99% uptime, however, to ensure our customers are provided with the latest security and feature updates, the QEval team performs regular maintenance and new releases from time to time. During these events, QEval team will send regular updates throughout the maintenance, upgrades or issue management process.

1. Downtime Notifications

QEval clients will be provided with a complete interruption report within the hour, of an internal confirmation, that a service interruption has occurred. The notification will be sent to the Emergency distribution list provided by the client. (Note: Emails will be sent to the emergency contact list for the clients that have been affected. We recommend establishing a single global email address for your organization)

If a QEval representative does not contact you in regards to a suspected service interruption, please contact QEval Technical Support with as much detail as possible. If you are unable to connect with the QEval team through phone support, we encourage you to contact us via the Chat or Email channels or contact our technical support team via the QEval admin console.

If you are unable to reach the QEval Technical Support team in cases of suspected service interruption, please contact your Enterprise Account Manager, who will be kept updated on the situation.

2. Uptime Notification An uptime

An uptime notification will be sent to the Emergency distribution list once QEval services are restored. The QEval technical support team will ensure that an update on the issue is sent every 24 business hours until a root cause analysis, impact, and resolution steps are completed.

3. Periodic Updates for QEval

QEval technical support will ensure that an update is sent out to the Emergency Contact distribution list on an hourly basis during times when QEval services are unavailable.

4. Scheduled Maintenance

The QEval team performs regular maintenance on the servers to ensure that we have the required resources to provide the best service to our customers. All scheduled maintenance communications will be sent to each customer’s emergency distribution list.

The QEval team provides at least 24 hours’ notice to the customer in the event when maintenance is needed to ensure service deliverables are met. For operational reasons, a shorter period of notice may occasionally be necessary.

5. Emergency Maintenance

On rare occasions, the QEval team may perform emergency maintenance. During these times, we will strive to provide as much advance notice as possible. We will also ensure that such maintenance occurs during times that cause minimal business impact to customers.

6. Emergency Distribution List

During all QEval implementations, your dedicated Account Manager will maintain a list of Emergency Contacts for communicating service-related information, including but not limited to scheduled maintenance, product upgrades, uptime/downtime notifications, and newsletters. It is the QEval customer’s responsibility to provide any updates to the Emergency Contacts by notifying our QEval Technical support team of any and all changes. We strongly recommend providing one single global email address that includes all the required stakeholders for your account.

Technical Issue Ticketing Process

All technical issues either reported by the QEval team or informed by a customer are entered into the QEval Helpdesk ticketing system. The QEval technical team assigns a priority level to each of these tickets and addresses the tickets based on their priority level. The QEval technical team reserves the right to change the priority level due to technical or business reasons. Below is the priority level matrix for all QEval tickets.

Issue Escalation Process

Following is our escalation matrix, which shows the escalation hierarchy starting from QEval support team. Client can escalate the issue as per the hierarchy shown below.

Technical Issue Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

Following is the standard operating process of issue resolution:

StepDescription
1After the ticket is generated and acknowledged, the QEval technical team assigns a priority level to each of these tickets and addresses the tickets based on their priority level. Priority levels are shown above.
2The first-tier team (support team) handles the ticket if possible but if the issue cannot be resolved, then the team must immediately communicate to the Sr. Developers or Leads to resolve the issue.
3Senior developers or Leads have to provide a solution and fix the issue while also proactively finding ways to avoid any future occurrences. As soon as problems are communicated to the team, they need to resolve the issues and communicate both internally and with the client to monitor the performance, ensuring the issue is resolved.
4The QA team verifies the resolution is done by the technical team and approves or rejects it, accordingly. If the QA team doesn’t approve, then the issue will be resent to the development team. If the QA team approves, it will be sent to the client for approval.
5After the client’s approval, a ticket is resolved, providing an explanation of what caused the issue and how it was fixed.
