Find out how many outbound calls your sales department is makimg by user/extension. How long does it take your call center to answer? How long are people stuck on hold or waiting for ACD to answer?

Software Assurance aka annual fees to get updates and factory support access for your vendor

Most all add-ons come with one year Software Assurance. Add-Ons typicaly intergrate to your computer, operating system, and smart phone apps all of which are constantatly being upgrade making old software unusable until updated. We strongly suggest you add the 5yr extension at time of purchase at what most others charge for a year of updates. If you purchase the 5yr you may extend it another 3 after the 5 years. This does not include the labor to upgrade which is billed at normal labor rates. To update without software assurance without being in maintenance as with most software requires a fresh complete purchase.
