Eligibility and Software Maintenance

Software maintenance covers access to support and software product updates for the corresponding Hosted Services active accounts. Refer to the End User License Agreement for specific terms of agreement. After the active maintenance period expires, the application database will not continue to function and you will no longer be able to access it.  This happens, if you cancel your subscription and we may remove or delete Your Data within a reasonable period. 

Support is open to system administrators and account holders. End-users will be redirected to a system administrator.

This FEEDBACK button serves as a help desk system.  Once, an entry has been submitted using this FEEDBACK button, our Technical Support Team will have 2-business days to response to your ticket.
  • Support Ticket Handling - All tickets are handled and responded to in the order they are received.
  • Critical Issues – If you have a critical issue that cannot be addressed through our FEEDBACK helpdesk queue. You can email us directly at help@btsvalidation.com and flag your email as high priority (!).  We would get to your request as quickly as possible.

  • Account on-boarding - Our team records your contact information and database configuration details during a series of on-boarding calls and discussions to ensure we have the necessary information available before your first ticket is filed, further reducing overall resolution times, questions, and delays for each follow-on issue.
  • Health Checks- During on-boarding our team performs health checks and performs best practice analysis across each of the BTS systems. Customers can also request that additional health checks be performed during upgrades on both staging and production environments.
  • Administrator Enabled Features –Each subscription to BTSValidation.com comes with a special type of user during their default setup called the Administrator.  This administrator has access to add other Administrators, Users, and have access to all Features.  Not all users will have Features accessible to them unless access is granted by an Administrator.  Therefore, users must check with their Administrator first to see if they were granted the level of accessibility required to perform their tasks.  Many times, we will refer Users to their Administrator to resolve accessibility requests.
