Terms & Conditions

Installation of a Managed Solutions Product

Managed Solutions Pty Ltd guarantee to install the solution as specified in the Managed Solutions. Customer Acceptance document for the installation charges as per our quotation. The Customer Acceptance document will clearly detail the key elements of the solution and will be completed with you after receipt by Managed Solutions Pty Ltd of your purchase order.

Ongoing Support of the provided solution

While our provided systems have an excellent record of reliability, the complex environment in which they operate with connection to different environments and their various services as well as the interaction in some cases with software applications and your data environment, means an annual service agreement represents an investment in your peace of mind.

Managed Solutions has established a service structure to ensure that your system and peripherals operate to their optimum level, efficiently and economically – ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum. We offer a full on-site service agreement to ensure your system and peripherals operate at optimum performance. Service is carried out on-site by fully trained technicians and may include any faulty parts replacement and all labor. Integral to the service agreement is a remote access capability (whenever possible) which means that any system changes you may wish to make are therefore only a phone call away.

If you decide not to enter into a service contract with us, your system will still be covered by our 3 year equipment warranty (dependant upon the warranty selected by you) but you will still be liable for the cost of labour in the unlikely case of any problem. Without a service agreement, Managed Solutions may not be able to respond immediately to your call because our technicians may be already committed to other customer projects. However our customers with service agreements have guaranteed service response times so downtime can be minimized.

Please note that some products will not be sold without an ongoing service agreement.

Conditions of Engagement

Whenever we work on your computers or network, we assume that you have full and complete backups of all data and software on the system.

We are pleased to test and verify your backups prior to the commencement of work if you are in doubt as to their viability but restrict our liability to the actual amount billed for the service. We assume that you have full legal ownership or rights to use any software you have loaded on your system or that you ask us to load or install. We cannot install software from our media and require you to provide originals for installation.

Provision of Internet Service

All internet services are provided subject to our Acceptable Use Policy. Breach of this policy may result in termination of your connection without further advice.

Due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee continuity or level of service at any time but we always strive to provide the highest possible availability and bandwidth. Our services are designed to be business class services and, as such, have the highest availability we can provide. We constantly strive to improve the quality of our offering and may require to schedule outages for the upgrade or variation of our network. We will always endeavour to advise you in advance of any such outage.

Any provision of internet connectivity is for a period of 12 months unless otherwise contracted at the time of quotation and order or specified as casual. Any cancellation prior to the completion of the contract will incur a charge of the fixed costs of the service for the remaining period of the contract. Fixed costs include such charges as line rentals, monthly fees and service fees but do not include excess data for the period after cancellation.

Cancellation of a service must be given one month in advance in order to give us lead time to finalise the connection. Any cancellation given for the current month will result in charges being due for the following month.

Installation of services may take up to 21 working days for ADSL and related services. Reconnection of a service cancelled by you is considered a new installation by us for purposes of billing and will incur additional charges.

Conditions of Quotation

Any quotation for work to be completed requires you to clearly identify concealed services to avoid accidental damage to such services. Any damage to such services shall be your responsibility.

Unless specifically stated as inclusions, pricing does not include: concrete coring or cutting, reinstatement of surfaces, repainting, additional work due to hidden services or obstructions, services by other contractors, certification by other parties, specific labeling or signage.

All quotations are valid for 14 days unless otherwise specified DSL service quotations are subject to the availability of the service at the required location. Our initial checks using telephone numbers verify that the exchange for that number is DSL capable. Once a service is ordered, tests on the line will determine if that line is capable of actually delivering the service.
