Severity Definitions
The service request severity level is selected by you and Phire and should be based on the following severity definitions:
Severity 1 Your production use of the supported programs is stopped or so severely impacted that you cannot reasonably continue work. You experience a complete loss of service. The operation is mission critical to the business and the situation is an emergency. A Severity 1 service request has one or more of the following characteristics:
  • Data corrupted
  • A critical documented function is not available
  • System hangs indefinitely, causing unacceptable or indefinite delays for resources or response
  • System crashes, and crashes repeatedly after restart attempts
For all supported Phire programs reasonable efforts will be made to respond to Severity 1 service requests within four (4) hours during local business hours, excluding holidays; local business hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time of the North America region.

24 Hour Commitment to Severity 1 Service Requests for all supported Phire programs: Phire Technical Support will work 24x7 until the issue is resolved or as long as useful progress can be made. You must provide Phire Technical Support with a contact during this 24x7 period, either on site or by pager, to assist with data gathering, testing, and applying fixes. You are requested to propose this severity classification with great care, so that valid Severity 1 situations obtain the necessary resource allocation from Phire.
Severity 2 You experience a severe loss of service. Important features are unavailable with no acceptable workaround; however, operations can continue in a restricted fashion.
Severity 3 You experience a minor loss of service. The impact is an inconvenience, which may require a workaround to restore functionality.
Severity 4 You request information, an enhancement, or documentation clarification regarding your software but there is no impact on the operation of the software. You experience no loss of service. The result does not impede the operation of a system.
