Service & Maintenance
Onsite Non-Contract Repairs
For some customers, where a maintenance contract is not the preferred option, We have several alternative repair services available. For clients without a contract, Qcom offers a full on-site emergency response service.
Response & Fix Time
Calls are normally responded to within 2/3 working days. A faster service and Saturday rates are also available at an upgraded price. Calls will normally be completed in 3-5 days subject to parts availability and/or time to authorise any quotations. Loan equipment rental can be provided in the interim if required.
Time and Materials (Ad Hoc)
We operate the quotation based time and materials rate which covers a call-out fee (to get the engineer on site) and an assessment of labour. A quote for any parts and labour will be supplied, or in the event that the repair is deemed to be uneconomic or unviable due to the age/condition of the unit, the client would be advised.
Fixed Price Repair (FPR) Call-outs
Simpler and swifter way of obtaining non-contract repairs. One fault per unit is covered by the fixed price, however, main logic board and severe customer damage would be subject to a surcharge.
Pre Engineer Visit - Technical Filter Call
A telephone technical filter call is made within 30 minutes of the call being logged to ascertain the fault and parts needed. On approximately 12% of occasions this service will clear the call to the client’s satisfaction without the need for a field visit. A flat fee will apply to calls in these circumstances (in the event that the calls are re-logged within 48 hours with the same fault, this charge will be offset against the resultant fixed price repair call-out charge).
Consumable Supply and Fitting
Available to customers with or without a maintenance contract. OEM consumables only are fitted due to our accreditation obligations. For clients wishing to minimise downtime we recommend the holding of an on-site spare head when a fitting fee only is chargeable.
Maintenance Contracts are available for a wide range of hardware, and provide cover for break & fix repairs. A number of different service levels are available, to ensure that you have a choice in the response and fix times, and the types of breakages you are covered for.
What is included in a Maintenance Contract?
Unlimited Telephone Technical Support
Contract customers may call us and speak with an engineer at any time during the contract period for over the phone technical support.
When logging a fault call with us, within 30 minutes of the call being logged, our Technical Filter engineer will call the site to ascertain as much information as possible regarding the fault, at this point currently 12% of calls are cleared.
