ITMAS Support and Maintenance

When you have the ITMAS solution installed, (either rental or outright purchase), you will be given the opportunity to take up support.

The maintenance and support agreement provides the following …

  • Full telephone support for any problems
  • Fixes to any bugs in the software
  • Automatic rights to any enhancements

This means that any time you experience technical difficulty you can contact one of our team who will assist you to resolve your problem.

Maintenance charges are calculated at either 10% of the then current list licence fees for the Traditional model or pro-rated based on the number of taxis managed for the Rental model.  Maintenance charges are not applicable for the first year with the traditional model.

With the Traditional model MSD’s preferred method of support where access to the system is required is to connect via the Internet.  This connection method reduces the communication costs and enables more immediate investigation of any problems and resolutions.  Our suggestion would be for an ADSL connection to the Internet with a fixed IP address, as this provides a permanent connection and ADSL is generally cheaper than the alternatives of ISDN or Frame Relay.

All our existing customers have chosen to take up this option and it is strongly recommended.

Maintenance and support charges do not apply for the first year with the traditional model.

Maintenance and support charges are mandatory for the rental model.
