One of the most important considerations in buying a management system is the after-sales support and ongoing development that will ensure not only that you get the most from the system but also that it will continue to support and grow with your business.
Prior to installation we will visit your site to ensure that we have properly understood all of your requirements and have all the information we need to ensure our installation is as smooth as possible. Our aim is to make sure that we meet your business needs. We provide comprehensive installation and onsite training as standard and offer a full range of backup services including additional training and business development.
The Advance system is very robust, however should issues arise, customers have the comfort of PineTree’s four tier support structure.
Intelligent Help System: Included in Advance is an extremely comprehensive and easy-to-use context-sensitive help facility which guides users through all functions of the system.
A dedicated helpdesk team: Second line support is provided by our dedicated helpdesk who are able to resolve enquiries and access your Advance application remotely. We have invested heavily in our support staff and systems and currently resolve 96% of issues within the first phone call.
