Customer Responsibilities

The Customer must:

ensure that the Software and equipment is operated by trained Personnel who are familiar with the equipment, Software and any related FMI Works documentation(including any instruction manuals), and in accordance with the operational guidelines;

in order to effect expedient determination and resolution of a technical issue, do all things reasonably necessary to verify any alleged issue before logging a support request to FMI Works;

report technical issues to FMI Works as soon as reasonably possible in accordance with guidelines for logging a support ticket established by FMI Works and communicated to the Customer in writing from time to time, including (to the extent reasonably possible):

the nature of the issue
the cause of the issue;
the estimated Priority Level of the issue (see Priority Levels below);
the steps being taken to minimise the impact of the issue; and
whether the issue is caused by something outside of the Customer’s reasonable control.


Planned Outages - we provide 5 Business Days' notice of any planned outages, eg. software/system updates.

Unplanned Outages - we publish updates in our help centre, should an unplanned outage occur.

Logging a Support Ticket

The customer can request Support Services by contacting the Customer Support Team through the support channels published on the FMI Works website.   FMI Works will allocate a unique identifier to each Request (a Ticket) and respond via the preferred channel.

Once the Customer has logged the Ticket, FMI Works will apply the Priority Level applicable to the Ticket.

Priority Levels

FMI Works will assess each Ticket and apply a Priority Level based on the table below.

All estimated response times and resolution times are calculated based on standard Business Days and Business Hours.

Notwithstanding that Support Services are provided during Business Hours only, FMI Works will use best endeavours to, where possible, respond and attempt to resolve any urgent issues outside of Business Hours.

FMI Works will generally prioritise and resolve Tickets in order of Priority Level in descending order.

Priority 1 - Urgent


Production systems are down and require immediate attention and a workaround is not available.

Any of the following has occurred:

The application has failed completely, data is not being processed or critical functionality is not continually available
A security vulnerability has/is being exploited, resulting in substantial monetary loss or data compromise


Target acknowledgment confirmation within 1 hour

Target resolution (full or work around within 24 hours)

Support team will continue to work on the issue until resolved

In the event of a data center outage, FMI Works is unable to directly affect the resolution time but will provide regular progress updates to the Customer

Priority 2 - High


A priority 3 problem exists but the work around is not practical in that the frequency of the activity and time to complete the workaround renders the use of the work around unreasonable.


Target acknowledgment confirmation within 1 hour

Target resolution within 5 business days

Support team continues to work on resolution during normal business hours

Priority 3 - Normal


Any of the following has occurred:

A problem exists that has a business impact but a work around is  available

Priority 4 - Low


Any of the following have occurred:

Target resolution is a future release as determined by FMI Works
