Request Level Definition
The customer is unable to complete critical business functionality. Examples are: users unable to access the Portal or Admin Tool, users unable to access an output file, or users unable to complete an order.
The customer is able to complete core business functionality, but in a less optimal manner. A workaround may exist for the business functionality. Examples are: users unable to delete an item from Distribution, a user is unable to upload a FusionPro template to the Admin Tool, or a user is unable to upload images to the library.
The customer is able to complete business functionality, but not in a desired manner. A workaround usually exists or the issue is low impact. Examples are: the product proof preview is not showing low resolution or a user submits request for more efficient ways to build a template.
The customer can circumvent the problem and use the system with only slight inconvenience.
The Portal URL of MarcomCentral is monitored to determine the uptime of the application for customers. The monitoring involves checking the URL from 5 distinct geographic locations every 10 minutes to ensure successful response. The system will wait 30 seconds to receive a success message. If none is received, from any location or for any time frame, the check fails and a system alert is sent. The alert allows MarcomCentral to monitor the application and internet connections across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The standard response time is less than 30 seconds. However, on average, 30 seconds is an appropriate timeframe to avoid false positives and alerts are always significant. The system alerts are monitored 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and responded to in a reasonable time frame.
