Field Service Operations Hardware Support Offerings

Introduction

Please find below a range of information referencing our hardware support customer offerings, part replacement and entitlement, hardware support locations and customer responsibilities. Please note that the following information is subject to change.

Onsite Overview

On diagnosing a hardware incident, Skyhigh will dispatch an authorized service technician to the location of the defective hardware with parts of like or better quality and provide labor necessary to repair or replace the hardware.

The service technician will verify that the necessary hardware has been shipped or has been received if not in-hand and will arrange to arrive on location accordingly to begin hardware repair or replacement.

Skyhigh currently provides the 3 levels of On-Site Hardware Support: 4-hour Same Day On-Site (7x24x4), Next Business Day On-Site (5x10xNBD) and 2-3 Business Day Ship On-Site (5x10).

For part replacement information on our services offered, please review our part replacement and entitlement information found under our section titled “Part Reference and Entitlement”.

Please note that services offerings are subject to the site locations specified in our Hardware Support Locations. Delivery times for all services may vary and are subject to carrier schedules and customs. Additional information may be required from the customer prior to shipping international deliveries.
