EXHIBIT A – SERVICE LEVEL ADDENDUM FOR SAAS
This Service Level Addendum for SaaS (“Service Level Addendum”) applies to the agreement entered into by and between the Customer (as identified on the Order Form) and the Service Provider (as identified on the Order Form) (“Master Agreement”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this document have the meanings assigned to them elsewhere in the Master Agreement.
- Definitions. The following definitions apply to this Addendum.
“Downtime” means the time in which any service is not capable of being accessed or used by the Customer, as monitored by Service Provider.
“Monthly Uptime Percentage” means the total number of minutes in a calendar month minus the number of minutes of Downtime suffered in a calendar month, divided by the total number of minutes in a calendar month.
“Exclusion from Downtime” The following are not counted as Downtime for the purpose of calculating Monthly Uptime Percentage:
- Service unavailability caused by Service Provider’s current schedule of monthly planned maintenance windows of the platform used to provide the applicable service and possible ad-hoc scheduled maintenance (Service Provider will endeavor to provide seven (7) days’ advance notice of service-affecting ad-hoc scheduled maintenance); or
- Service unavailability caused by events outside of the direct control of Service Provider or its subcontractor(s), including any force majeure event, the failure or unavailability of Customer systems, the Internet, and the failure of any other technology or equipment used to connect to or access the service.
- Service Provider SLA. During the term of the applicable SaaS Subscription Agreement between Customer and Service Provider for the services listed on the Order Form, Service Provider will use reasonable efforts to achieve a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5% for any calendar month (the “Service Provider SLA”). If Service Provider does not meet the
Service Provider SLA, and so long as Customer’s account with Service Provider is current, Customer will be eligible to receive the credits described below. These credits are Customer’s
exclusive remedy (and Service Provider’s sole liability) with respect to Service Provider’s inability to meet the Service Provider SLA requirements. Service Provider explicitly disclaims all other remedies, whether in law or equity.
- Service Credits. Credits are issued as a financial reimbursement if Service Provider does not meet the Service Provider SLA for a particular month of the ordered term. Upon approval of a claim Service Provider will provide the applicable remedy set forth below:
Monthly Uptime Percentage
<99.5% but >= 99.2%
5% of the monthly fee
<99.2% but >= 99.0%
10% of the monthly fee
<99.0% but >= 98.7%
15% of the monthly fee
20% of the monthly fee
- Maximum Credit. The maximum credit available to Customer if Service Provider is unable to meet the Service Provider SLA is up to twenty percent (20%) of the monthly fees for the month of the occurrence. Any credit will be applied to fees due from Customer for the service and will not be paid to Customer as a refund. All claims for credit are subject to review and verification by Service Provider, and all credits will be based on Service Provider’s measurement of its performance of the service and will be final.
- Claim Procedure. To receive a service credit for Service Provider’s failure to meet the Service Provider SLA in a particular calendar month, Customer must submit a claim via the Customer support portal within thirty (30) days of the end of the month during which the Service Provider did not meet the Service Provider SLA, and include the following information:
- Customer name and account number;
- the name of the service to which the claim relates;
- the name, email address, and telephone number of the Customer’s designated contact; and
- information supporting each claim of Downtime, including date, time, and a description of the incident and affected service, all of which must fall within the calendar month for which the claim is being submitted.

Support cases are tracked and managed through access to a call management system operated by Service Provider’s support center (the “Customer Support Portal”).
2.3 Severity Classification and Response Time Goals. Issues are classified by Service Provider according to severity of impact on the use of the Application, according to the chart in Table A below and are processed based on the case severity levels described in Table A below. When submitting a case, Customer will be asked to indicate the severity of the case for initial response in accordance with the severity definitions described in Table A below. When the case is received, Service Provider support specialists will be allowed to change the severity level if, in their discretion, the issue does not conform to the definition for the suggested severity and will notify Customer of such change. All disputes regarding severity classification will be resolved by Service Provider in its sole discretion. Service Provider will respond to Support Services requests and endeavour to provide workarounds or fixes in accordance with the target timeframes described in Table A. Service Provider will oversee the escalation process described at below to aid in the tracking and resolution of outstanding issues that have not been resolved within a reasonable timeframe.
2.4 Technical Contacts. Customer’s technical contacts must be trained on the Software in order to help resolve system issues and to assist Service Provider in analyzing and resolving technical Support Service requests. When submitting a technical Support Service request, Customer’s technical contact must have a good understanding of the problem encountered and an ability to reproduce the problem in order to assist Service
Provider in diagnosing and triaging the problem.
- Obligations of Customer.
3.1 Contacting Service Provider Support. Service Provider’s support teams can be reached via the following means:
- Service Provider Customer Portal. The Service Provider Customer Portal enables Customers to view their cases and interact with the Service Provider Support team in an online Portal environment. Customers who have been provided access to this Portal should use it as their primary means to contact Service Provider Support.
- Via email ticketing system to Service Provider Support (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Service Provider Support team can also be contacted via email using the email@example.com email address. When you submit a request via email, an acknowledgement email reply, with a case number, will automatically be sent to you by Service Provider to confirm receipt of your request. Note: If the matter is of high severity, please clearly state so in the email subject line to ensure your urgent request is treated in priority order.
- Via Telephone – in case of emergency/high severity. Should you have a critical or urgent support need, you can reach Service Provider Support via phone at the one of the support centers listed below (Support Locations).
3.2 Best Practice For Reaching Service Provider Support. In order to ensure you receive the quickest response to your support request, please follow these best practice guidelines:
- Place your support request using the recognized support channels: either via the Customer portal or official support email address.
- Clearly indicate the nature of your request, the product it concerns, the severity of the issue and provide the relevant details about your request.
- To avoid unnecessary duplication of cases (and any ensuing confusion), if you subsequently provide additional information about your request, please do so by using the original email string (i.e. add your comments to the “automated acknowledgement email” you received, rather than starting a new email).
- For high severity issues/situations, create a case request via the portal or email and also please call the Service Provider Support team to receive immediate support.

3.6 Case Escalation. Our Service Provider front line technical support experts are your first point of contact when requesting help with usability questions and solutions to incidents. They aim to ensure your support needs are fully addressed and resolved to your satisfaction. On occasion, your assigned support specialist may be unable to provide the required help for a specific issue/case. In such a situation, your case may be escalated to other Service Provider team members in order to obtain additional help in achieving prompt resolution of the case/issue. Below outlined is the Case Escalation Process followed at Service Provider.
3.7 Types of Escalation. Service Provider recognizes two types of escalation, which are not mutually exclusive. Either one or both may be applicable to a given situation. Functional Escalation refers to the process of assigning a case from one functional team to another team based on the skills required to resolve the incident or case. Hierarchical Escalation refers to the process of involving a more senior Service Provider team member in the case to help support its resolution. At Service Provider, this could mean oversight by one of the following: the Director of Support, your assigned Project Manager, your Account Manager and/or, in extreme cases, someone from the Service Provider management team (VPs & CEO).
3.8 Steps in Requesting Escalation. Before escalating a case, please be sure you have: 1) created a case through the proper channels and 2) have also contacted Support for help. Should your case/issue require escalation, your technical support specialist will request the appropriate escalation on your behalf. However, if you are not satisfied by the speed or type of escalation, Service Provider entitles you to personally request escalation from other individuals at Service Provider. To escalate a case, please address your request incrementally in the following fashion:
Step 1: Ask the specialist assigned to your case/incident to escalate the issue.
Step 2: Reach out to a Support Director:
North America: Denis.Michaud@voxco.com
Step 3: (if one has been assigned to you): reach out to your Service Provider Project Manager.
Step 4: Reach out to your Account Manager/Sales Manager
3.9 Remote Connection. If appropriate, Customer will cooperate with Service Provider to allow and enable Service Provider to perform Support via remote connection using standard, commercially available remote control software. Customer will be solely responsible for instituting and maintaining proper security safeguards to protect Customer’s systems and data.
- Updates. Customer acknowledges and agrees that SaaS updates provided by Service Provider pursuant to this Addendum may, in Service Provider’s sole discretion, require additional training of Customer’s personnel. Such training will be performed in accordance with Section 6.
- Disclaimer. Service Provider will not be responsible to provide Support, updates, or any other maintenance and support to the extent that Issues arise because Customer: (a) misuses, improperly uses, mis-configures, alters, or damages the Application; (b) uses the Application with any hardware or software not recommended by Service Provider; (c) uses the Application at any unauthorized location; (d) fails to install an update to the Application if such update would have resolved the Issue; or (e) otherwise uses the Application in a manner not in accordance with the Master Agreement.
- Additional Professional Services.
4.1 Scope. Customer may purchase supplemental professional services for an additional fee. Fees related to such services will be set forth in a statement of work signed by both parties. If no fee is stated, then services will be provided at Service Provider’s standard rate for equivalent services in effect at the time the statement of work is executed. For clarity, if any services are explicitly included in the Support Level selected by Customer, then such services do not require payment of an additional fee.
- a) On-Site Services. Customer may purchase on-site Support.
- b) Training. Customer may purchase training services with respect to the Application.
- c) Consulting. Customer may purchase consulting services related to defects caused by Issues other than the Application.
