Issue Reaction Time

Our reaction time depends on the severity level of a Support Case. Issue complexity can be defined on 4 levels:

Support case Severity Resolution time
An emergency situation in which the Covered Application is inoperable, produces incorrect results, or fails catastrophically. The main function stops working. For example: A bug which could stop users using from the main function of the site and/or 404 error, 500 error, Yellow Page, white page Severity 1 (Blocker or Critical) Best efforts to resolve within 24 hours
A detrimental situation in which performance (throughput or response) of the Covered Application degrades substantially under reasonable loads, such that there is a severe impact on use; the Covered Application is usable, but materially incomplete; one or more mainline functions or commands is inoperable; or the use is otherwise significantly impacted. Severity 2 (Major) Best efforts to resolve within 48 hours
Produces an inconvenient situation in which the Covered Application is usable, but does not provide a function in the most convenient or expeditious manner, but the user suffers little or no significant impact. Severity 3 (Normal/Low) All such bugs will be covered in quarterly maintenance release.
