Frequently Asked Questions

 Yes. While you can select a combination of tiers across your environment, you will need to select the same tier within each technology group (e.g. SQL databases, Citrix farm). Simply work with our sales and service on-boarding teams to agree the amount of support you need.

Yes. Should you no longer require a particular tier of service, you should let us know in writing, so we can amend your contract accordingly and confirm any cost changes that may be applicable. You can upgrade at any time, however a 90 day notice period is required to downgrade between tiers.

Our recommended contract term is three years, from the point of go-live. This enables our technical specialists to have a positive impact over the availability, stability and operational efficiency of the infrastructure, applications and workloads under support.

We provide predictable pricing and monthly adjustments to cater for organic changes. Where any aspect of the contracted service increases or decreases by more than 20% of the initial contract value, a commercial review will be triggered, which may result in a change in costs.

Ultima provide Mission Critical Support to many different clients, however we are mostly aligned to SMB and SME customers from across a wide range of private, public and defence organisations.

Yes. Ultima will act as the primary single point of contact, and work with existing third party resolver groups or utilise our ecosystem of long-standing partners to address the support required. Please contact your sales account manager to discuss your specific requirements.

against a fixed scope and
agreement term.

we
use virtual agents, machine learning, orchestration

and improve the end
user experience.
