Software Upgrade Assistance
We recognize that upgrades may have an impact on productivity, so it’s our goal to minimize any potential productivity dips. We offer several options to assist customers with their planned software upgrades. Most assistance can be provided remotely and will ensure a smooth and successful upgrade cycle. However, in the event that a customer would like onsite, after hours or even weekend upgrade assistance, we have several options to explore. Contact your location Account Manager, or visit our Services page to learn more.
Additional Areas of Assistance
Some problems may be beyond the scope of standard support but require onsite assistance from a DASI support technician or Application Engineer. It is our goal to help investigate and identify the source of the issues and recommend specific action for your unique situation. Generally these areas include hardware issues related to:
- Operating Systems
- Graphics Cards
- Network Infrastructure and Connectivity
- Culture/Workflow or process
- Implementation set up
