Service Level Agreement
J&B Technology understands the services they provide are mission-critical for their clients. That is why they are one of the few companies to take the extra step and offer an Service Level Agreement to all of their customers. As a company strongly committed to providing a reliable, high-quality customer experience to their clients, this is another example of our dedication. Our industry leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) outlines the minimum service expectations a client may expect from J&B Technology for their provided Business VoIP service. This SLA represents both J&B Technology’s responsibility and their client’s course of action with respect to J&B Technology’s Quality & Service Guarantee.
J&B Technology Quality & Service Guarantee:
If a J&B Technology client is for any reason dissatisfied with the services provided by J&B Technology, the client may terminate J&B Technology services at any time. Any prepaid fees for the current month are non-refundable, unless there is a separate term contract related to the services being provided. Customers may return un-used equipment within 10 days of purchase for a modest re-stocking fee (20%). 3CX license purchases are non-refundable. VoIP services are dependent on many providers (between our servers and the end users’ equipment) and such carriers, Internet Service providers, Network/Transit providers and their associated traffic routing and quality of service is completely outside the control of J&B Technology. Such issues outside of J&B Technology’s control are not valid grounds for requesting service credits.
Scheduled Network Maintenance refers to normal maintenance scheduled for the upgrade of J&B Technology’s data and voice network, as well as servers used to deliver services for the clients. Scheduled Network Maintenance may occur at any time during our maintenance window of 10:00PM – 5:30AM EST and Emergency and Security-related Maintenance may happen at any time, so as to protect continuing services for all clients. Such effects related to Scheduled or Emergency Network Maintenance shall not give rise to service credits outlined in this SLA.
J&B Technology must receive written notice of the client’s intent to terminate their J&B Technology plan within twenty-four hours of a billing cycle to avoid being billed for a future service term.
<p?A credit balance will be carried for interruptions, specifically within the J&B Technology service being provided, where inbound or outbound calling is affected for period in excess of 45 minutes for each user affected. Voice Service Unavailability shall begin when the Support Ticket, Email or Phone Call is received by the J&B Technology Support Team and ends when the service has been deemed in operation once again.
Credit Amount – Total Interruption Time
10% 45 min to 1 hour
20% 1 hour to 47 hours + 59 minutes
33% More than 48 hours
We have refunded credits and refunds up to a full month of service, based on certain scenarios. This is at the sole discretion of J&B Technology management.
Provisions to J&B Technology’s Availability Guarantee
No credit balance will be earned under the following scenarios:
- Noncompliance with respect to J&B Technology’s Terms of Service (including its payment terms)
- Power failure at the client’s location
- Local equipment found negatively affecting the IP Telephony services
- Failure of equipment, systems, connections or services not provided by J&B Technology (i.e. ISP: Internet Service Provider)
- Circumstances or causes beyond the reasonable control of J&B Technology
- Any period in which J&B Technology is not provided full and free access to all required equipment in order to rectify a situation
The amount of credit available per month is subject to a cap as described in this Agreement.
Credit Balance and Payment Process
Following a verified incident, J&B Technology will provide a credit or refund earned from the J&B Technology SLA herein within two billing cycles. Credits are based on the average client user fee, and total sum will not exceed the average client user fee for that billing period, nor will J&B Technology be responsible for any fees, damages or credits more than the total sum of the average client user fee for that billing period. Credits will only be given to clients in good financial standing and must comply with J&B Technology’s Terms of Service. As a result of any investigations, clients must fully cooperate with the J&B Technology Support Team. Failure to do so, will negate all credit earnings and void the Guarantee.
Policy Change – At any time, J&B Technology may change, amend or revise this SLA. The revised SLA shall become effective once posted on the J&B Technology website.
