The CoreView Platform is considered to be available when any authorized user can successfully log-in and perform all material portions of the available user actions.
2. Service Credits. If, in any calendar month during the Term, the Availability Commitment is not met, CoreView will grant Client a service credit (a “Service Credit”) for that month in accordance with the chart below.

CoreView will make available to Clients a cloud-based customer service and support portal for use by the Client for purposes of providing Tier 1 Support Services. Client can access the Portal twenty-four hours a day at the following address: http://support.coreview.com. Clients are expected to use the Portal to access CoreView knowledge resources, collaborate with the CoreView Community and when necessary, request support by opening a Support Case. A Client’s Support Case will receive a unique tracking number and a confirmation sent to the Client by electronic mail. Prior to opening a Support Case, Clients are expected to perform reasonable troubleshooting and problem analysis to determine if the problem can be resolved by the Client without the need for additional support.
CoreView is not responsible for responding to a Client’s request for support that is not properly submitted using the Portal.
4. Delivery of Support Services. CoreView support services are provided in two ways. For everyday support needs as well as access to product documentation, release notes, news and alerts, and other valuable information, Clients are expected to rely on the Portal. The Portal is monitored by individuals (“Customer Care Team”) who are experienced and knowledgeable about CoreView products and will work with the Client toward a timely and satisfactory resolution of a reported problem or a workaround that is acceptable to the Client. Additionally, Clients have access to a Customer Success Manager (“CSM”) to assist and guide Clients through the onboarding process, to keep the Client informed about product release and new features, serve as a point of escalation when critical issues arise, and to help the Client make the most of their investment in CoreView. At the Client’s discretion, a CSM will be available to meet with the Client on a recurring basis, typically monthly. All CSM services are delivered remotely. Client may purchase dedicated CSM services as mutually agreed by the parties pursuant to an Order.
5. Hours of Support. The CoreView Customer Care Portal will be available twenty-four hours a day, except during the hours of scheduled maintenance. Normal hours of operation are weekdays between 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM EDT. The schedule of CoreView’s holiday closures can be found on the Customer Care Portal.
