ISIS Papyrus offers two types of support:
1. Technical product support
While we make every effort to avoid software errors, this is not always totally possible. In this case, please contact the ISIS Papyrus Support Team. Every customer with a valid ISIS Papyrus maintenance agreement may benefit from a number of options available. Our Support team will reply and attend to your questions promptly and try to provide you with a resolution as soon as possible. We will analyze the reported problem in the ISIS Papyrus labs, and if necessary, we will send you a patch, or update, to solve the problem.
2. Application support
Coding of document and business applications lies outside the responsibility of ISIS Papyrus. Of course, we will try to assist however possible and offer solutions as allowed by available application knowledge. However, tasks like searching an application developer's mistake, fine-tuning of DOCDEF applications, etc., require detailed data and knowledge of system and business applications. If suggestions provided by ISIS Papyrus are not sufficient to resolve one of these problems completely, or if the implementation of any new requirement is requested, we recommend asking for assistance from an ISIS Papyrus consultant. Customers may request the services of an ISIS Papyrus consultant for a fee with the ISIS Papyrus Marketing Services (email: email@example.com) or by contacting the Customer Care representative or local ISIS Papyrus company office for the appropriate pricing and resources for your situation.
