The ISQM Manager software initially offers the following languages: French, Dutch and English.
The ISQM Manager tool is designed to include the maximum number of languages for each Customer and/or users.

Other languages such as: German, Italian, Spanish, ... or other languages that can be integrated as requested.

  • At the request of a CUSTOMER and/or user, it can provide all the text / words and necessary translations for each language and integrate them into your ISQM Manager according to the desired languages.
  • If we are requested to complete a translation, an analysis must be carried out to define the translation costs, deployment and production for this new language.
  • We remain available to increase the number of ISQM Manager languages so that each user can work in their own language and/or country.

To provide support, we are setting up the help desk defined under the following conditions :

  • Requests will be submitted by the Customer's "Master".
  • Limited to 4 requests per month for the first 3 months
    • + 2 additional requests if the basic and advanced training are ordered with the ISQM Manager subscription
  • Limited to 2 requests per month in subsequent months.
  •  sous forme de ticket par mois les mois suivants.
  1. The CUSTOMER or the "MASTER" will be the request manager in order to filter and thus avert them :
    • Duplicate requests
    • An increase in your costs if the limits described above are exceeded.

Over and above this quota of hours, requests will be invoiced per support request or deducted from services purchased in advance.

We are putting in place: 3 types of support :

Type 1: a support contact :

  • A request is equal to an encoding of a ticket.
  • Each ticket is defined for a maximum duration of 15 minutes.
  • Answer questions about the use or configuration of the software.
  • It is mandatory to encode your application/ticket:
    • in the management of requests to have a trace for follow-up.
    •  It is Esomus that reminds the Customer if necessary.

Type 2: a Bug contact :

  •  It is mandatory to use Tickets.
  • There is obviously no limit to the number of applications.
  • If the bug prevents you from carrying out certain actions in your daily life.
  • More information can be obtained by calling for an opinion on the resolution.
  • But only if the problem is significant and within business hours.
  • ATTENTION: In the first 2 cases of contact,
    • it can only be done by “Master” people, (not end users).During working hours by phone or at any time in request management.
    • Allows you to get answers to questions how how to use or configure the software.
    • Before calling, it is advisable to first log it in request management for tracking, in this case, this counts as a single request.

In the first 2 contact scenarios, it can only be carried out by "Master" individuals, not end users.

Type 3: an emergency call contact :

  • When the whole system is locked and you are no longer able to work.
    • Where this is the case, you must log a request (Tickets) beforehand
      • (except in cases of extreme urgency) and follow up with a phone call.
  • NOTE : This call can only be made during working hours.
  • If the emergency takes place outside working hours :
    • Then it can only be given by one person recognised by the CUSTOMER, it is recommended that this is the "MASTER".
  • Any abuse of this last rule will be invoiced at the applicable hourly rate depending on the length of the call + a flat-rate fee in euros exclusive of VAT.

Over time and use of the ISQM Manager software, there will certainly be requests and/or new objectives from :

  • Customers / Users / Services / Firms / Networks / Industry taxes / New needs and/or objectives of the CUSTOMER and/or the standard.

To ensure your new tool is up to date and meets these new requirements and/or the standard and for the purposes of continuous improvement, any request must be submitted to ESOMUS for analysis.

Consequently, to include these new features in the ISQM Manager software and in keeping with this new development ethos and the extent of requests, we will need to carry out a functional analysis to define the needs, requirements and relevance of including them quickly and/or according to specific objectives of the standard and/or requirements.

Then, if it relaters to an enhanced feature and/or integration of new features, it is possible to price this adaptation. These new features that are to be integrated are likely to result in an increase in the cost of your subscription license.
