Our contracts can be structured as follows:
Our technicians intervene directly at the customer site or at any other location as indicated by the client. The hours used for each service call are either deducted from the service package purchased by the customer or they are billed monthly. For every call and for each technician present, the time is calculated starting from the time of arrival until the time of departure from the service location, rounded up to the next half hour.

Service hours for each call are calculated based on the same rules described in the previous section and are either deducted from the service package purchased by the client or billed monthly.
Vanilla Innovations provides technical support over the phone, which can be accessed directly by the customer in order to resolve computer operation issues, ask information on how to continue operations already in progress, receive general information and/or receive assistance in case of problems. Phone support has no limit on the number of calls allowed to each customer.
