SLA - Website Support

This is a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between Plaudit and Client, documenting the website support services provided by Plaudit. This document is applicable to websites with a support service defined in an active SOW that references this document by URL. Services provided depends on the Client's support package but normally includes website design and website development.

Service Hours

Opening a Request

Requests may be made by submitting a ticket, emailing, or calling Plaudit. Opening a ticket by going to or by emailing is recommended since timeframes are only applicable once a ticket exists in the ticket system. Please note that, for example, emailing an individual at Plaudit vs opening a ticket may introduce a delay (e.g. the person emailed is in a meeting or on vacation).
