You may create a Support Ticket at https://www.signority.com/support-center or call Support Line, if available in a negotiated SLA.  Support Tickets are not closed until Signority has resolved the issue to your reasonable satisfaction.

By submitting a support request to the Signority Customer Experience team, you are authorizing the Signority Customer Experience Support team to download or copy any data necessary for troubleshooting the reported issue. Should our team require direct access to your account and any affected documents, the Customer Experience representative will always request permission. If denied, we will explain the consequence of the restrictions, and respect your decision.  

We will NOT proceed into your account to resolve the issue until we have received written permission specifying permission to access your account and/or documents.  If you have any concerns about this authorization, please contact your Signority Customer Experience Manager.

Emergency Support

We will provide emergency maintenance and support services for those failures or nonconformities which impair you from being able to process any documents at all. To ensure the quickest possible response you will notify Log a Support Ticket and, in your negotiated SLA, contact your Customer Experience Manager to notify them of the ticket.

As soon as possible after receiving the ticket we will contact you to confirm the issue, troubleshoot the issue with you, and if necessary escalate the issue.  All Service Level Objectives (Response Time and Resolution Time) are expressed in our Severity Level Table below. 

Solution Availability

The Service Level Agreement (SLA) for Uptime shall be 99.9%, calculated monthly using the defined Uptime Percentage calculation. This Service commitment does not apply to any Unavailability that results from any Scheduled Maintenance.
