Compro Comprehensive Services - Support

Terms and Conditions for Support

General Information

Compro offers a selection of maintenance plans designed to meet the growing demands of today's customers.  In addition to standard package offerings, any standard service program can be custom-tailored to meet unique requirements.

For standard programs, the rate is determined by the equipment configuration and proximity to a Compro Service Office location.  Rates apply to coverage during the Principal Period of Maintenance (PPM), which is 8:00AM through 5:00PM, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Support plans are available at fixed monthly rates to simplify budgeting.  The minimum period of performance is one year.

TeleDiagnostic Modules (TDM's) supplied as part of a hardware support contract are Compro property, and must be returned to Compro upon contract expiration.

Payment Terms

Minimum On Site Support Charge

The minimum annual charge for on site support from Compro is $6,000 per site within a designated support area.  An additional charge may be applied for services outside a 50 mile radius of a service area.  This minimum charge applies to PHS and SHS programs, and is exclusive of any applicable discounts.

Due Date

Payment terms are net 30 days from the date of invoice.  Maintenance charges will be billed monthly in advance or annually in advance as appropriate.  All other charges will be invoiced upon completion of the service.

Late Payment

Maintenance charges which are not paid when due shall be subject to interest at one and one half percent (1 ½%) per month, but not in excess of the lawful maximum, on the unpaid balance.  If charges remain unpaid, the cost and expense of collection, including reasonable attorney's fees, will be due and payable.  Compro reserves the right to discontinue service if charges remain unpaid.

Cancellation Charge

After the initial commitment period (one year, unless stated otherwise), Compro must have 90 days prior written notice before terminating a service agreement.

Model Number and Ordering Information

All Compro products are identified by unique model numbers.  Service program model numbers are the same as product model numbers with the addition of a two-digit prefix.  The first digit of this prefix denotes a Customer Service product (F) and the second digit denotes the type of service (i.e., Premier, Standard, SUS, etc.). The breakdown of these prefixes are as follows:

Note: All 91 Series computer systems bundle the operating system and other software products with the system price.  As a result, there is a separate price for hardware and software maintenance.  The software maintenance price will appear in the software section and the hardware maintenance price will appear in the hardware section of the Customer Services Price List.  The base part number will remain the same but the service two-digit prefix will change.

All contract maintenance service pricing is represented in Monthly Maintenance Rate (MMR) dollars, except Software Update Service (SUS) and Mature Software Support (MSS) which are represented in Annual Support Rate (ASR) dollars.
