Big or small. International or local. With our software on your servers, we've got your back with a service plan that fits you.
We are constantly enhancing your Next software. New features and bug fixes are released monthly, and accumulated over a period of time into major releases. You download and install everything at will. Or hire one of our specialists to do it for you. Radical new features may be introduced as new separate products or modules, and hence come at a price.
Full product documentation, including end user guides, implementation best practice papers, administration Q&A forums, and programmers handbooks are at your fingertips 24x7. Use our collective knowledge to do your own stuff, or tap into decades of experience using one of our skilled professionals.
We have real live qualified Multi Supporters waiting to take your call and answer your mails. No robots. No low cost call center staff with silly scripts. Only dedicated professionals with a desire to help you. You can call the designated local help desk number 1 Monday through Friday2 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm local time, in English or in your local language3, with an unlimited number of questions related to the operation of your Next software. Of course we don't do training or consultancy as part of the help desk support. If any of your questions require either we'll let you know, and ask if you want to hook up with a professional services consultant.
Notes: 1: Calls to any other number are treated as consultancy requests. 2: Except national holidays. 3: Defined response times are for support in English. Requesting support in a local language may result in longer response times.
To optimize your service experience we'll categorize your support request as one of four categories and process it accordingly.

|2||Important||8 business hours|
|1||Critical||4 business hours|
