Opmantek Perpetual Support
We believe we provide the best support in the Industry. We treat customer’s issues like they are our own.
Opmantek support engineers are highly skilled in NMIS, Open-AudIT and all Opmantek products and work either as part or in Opmantek’s development team ensuring a constant refresh of knowledge. Opmantek support engineers are involved with customer implementation and rollout. They are also actively involved in the open source community as are our development team.
When you contact Opmantek support the contact goes direct to an engineer who can help with the issue – Opmantek does not filter the contacts through green level support or administrative personnel. This benefits you. You will reach an engineer who can help you, quickly, in one step.
Opmantek utilises Atlassian software to track support cases and ensure automated escalation to ensure the best support possible.

Issue Priorities, Response Time and Escalation
With the customer’s assistance, the severity of the issue is determined, and the case is assigned a priority. Every case is assigned one of the following four priorities which sets the automated issue escalation process into motion. We may reprioritise cases higher or lower to ensure the best outcome for you.
|Priority 1 (Blocker)||Business critical.
Only available for production systems. Represents a complete loss of service; a significant function that is completely unavailable; data loss; no workaround exists. Does not include installation issues or issues in staging environments.
|Priority 2 (Critical)||Severe impact.
Only available for production systems. Software inconsistency significantly decreases productivity; a workaround may be available. Does not include installation issues or issues in staging environments.
|Priority 3 (Major)||Degraded operations.
Only available for production systems. Software inconsistency slightly impairs productivity; a workaround may be available. Includes feature requests and cosmetic defects. Does not include installation issues or issues in staging environments.
|Priority 4 (Minor)||Informational.
Available for all systems. Includes all faults for non-production systems, including installation issues and all requests for information.
Note: Priority 1 Issues: please ensure that you have staff available throughout the duration of this issue to execute any instructions from Opmantek. If you are unable to have staff available, the priority will be downgraded to match the customers availability.
