Service levels and response times designed to meet business needs
Your IT systems must be available to meet the demands of your business, whether for mission-critical applications or budgetary considerations. NCT offers a full range of support levels designed to help meet your needs during both the NCT warranty and post-warranty periods. Available levels of support are product dependent. If you have questions, speak to your NCT sales representative. These levels and service options are designed to help you manage IT costs within the requirements of your business. The service levels described here are those most frequently available.
Remote technical support:
Telephone or electronic support is usually the first choice for high availability and low cost. Very often the trained specialists with product-specific skills, solve your problems, however when that is not an option, another support option will help meet your availability objectives.
Onsite support options will help meet your availability objectives and are available in several levels.
24x7 same day– Around-the-clock service includes holidays. When onsite service is required, a service technician is scheduled to arrive at your site within 24 hours of receiving the call, but typically arrives within two to four hours after remote problem determination is completed.
And for those critical applications, you may want to request specific response objectives of either 2 or 4 hours, after the remote problem determination is completed. These special objectives are available, depending on product and geographic location.
9x5x4 hour Service is provided Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.local time, excluding holidays. A service technician is scheduled to arrive at your site within 4 hours after remote problem determination is completed. If it is determined, after 1:00 p.m., that onsite service is needed, you can expect the service technician to arrive the morning of the following business day. For noncritical service requests, a service technician will arrive by the end of the following business day
9x5 next business day - A service technician is scheduled to arrive at your site on the business day after we receive your call. The business day is Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. local time, excluding holidays.
You call NCT to request service and, if the product cannot be repaired with the help of remote support, we either (1) send you a return carton, with a prepaid label, to ship the failing product to the depot center for repair or (2) send a courier to pick up your machine and deliver it to the depot center for repair. The target repair time, dependent on machine type, ranges from as little as 12 hours or up to 5 business days after receipt at the depot. Service calls are accepted anytime, but the depot service is available from 8:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ET.

Onsite exchange - a replacement is shipped the same day the service call was received and schedule next day delivery to you.
