No matter how careful we are when creating our software, it is possible that bugs can result. Our technical support is designed to help clients use our software smoothly for an extended period without incurring a high cost. Charges, if any, are meant to offset our administrative and software development/maintenance costs which will allow us to deliver better and more robust software.
Technical support is included at no extra charge for all CARAT software and iCARAT application purchases for the first 12 months. After that, it can be extended for 12 months if you would like to continue receiving it. The following support services are provided:-
• Remote access
• Software/application feature upgrades
• Software/application bug fixes
Note: Software/application updates/upgrades are either provided as downloadable installation files or auto-updated by us for online versions of iCARAT applications.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Support Provided?
