Milestone Systems has announced a support service under the name Milestone Care, as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to maximise the business value of video management systems for partners and customers. Milestone Care can help minimise risk and downtime as well as reduce support costs through a tiered choice of comprehensive technical services, including direct assistance in deployment and daily operations, and resolving issues in the video infrastructure.

Milestone Care is a supplement to the support that customers already receive today from the Milestone reseller network. Partners and customers can choose to leverage Milestone Care for a more complete and flexible support package. The service is designed to provide customers with different service levels depending on their need, for example 24/7 support or during weekends.

All Milestone product and service offerings are sold exclusively through Milestone Partners, empowering them to provide just the right solution for each customer, with the expert support service levels they need most, when they need them.

This service level offers full investment protection with 100% credit when upgrading from a current Milestone software product to the newest version of the same product, or when upgrading to a more advanced product.

Milestone Care Premium – In addition to the above packages, this includes direct and prioritised technical email and phone support and expert assistance 24/7/365, and can be delivered in the customer’s preferred language.
