VMT Software offers unparalleled technical support. We offer 3 levels of support so that whatever your situation, you can get help.
Why is support so important?
"If the software is so good and easy to run, why do I need support?"
This is the question we often receive. The answer is simple. Think of all the other things that can go wrong besides the Video Rental Software. Hardware (like your hard drive, memory, video card, etc.), Operating system software (Windows), Power failures, Other software (like Virus checkers, spyware, actual viruses), and of course people (clerks, so called computer experts, etc.) Any of these things can cause problems with your computer, and quite possibly corrupt your data.
Communicate with us via:
Phone - Free Bulletin Board - Email.
That being said, we recommend you call us on the phone. After all, when you need help, you usually need it right now! This software is just as important as your phone, it is very difficult to run your business without it. Quite frankly, if you can't call the software company on the phone and ask them a question, you really don't have support!
Remote Control Software
That means it's secure for you. You can see everything we're doing, and normally we're on the phone with you at the same time. High speed internet is required.
We do not force you to buy support, nor do we charge you a penalty of any kind if your support is expired. (Our program will not coincidently crash if your support is expired!) Except for Video Shoppe Limited, all programs come with one year of support. And when we say a year, we mean a year... not 6 hours in a year!
Available types of support:
Most support is done on the phone or On Line.
We do have email support of course, but it is only checked on the weekdays during business hours. We transfer the support phone to the on-call technician after hours (every day), and on weekends and holidays. After hours support is generally for emergency situations where you are not able to process transactions. We know that video stores make their money on the weekends, after normal business hours, and holidays. We are there for you at those important times.
How can we give you this much support and stay in business???
It's simple really. We don't have a separate support staff to pay. And we don't need a support staff because we have minimal support issues. And that is because our software runs, and runs, and runs well. If someone finds an actual ' Bug ' in the program, we don't put it on a list, we fix it right away.
What about Updates? Do they come with the support?
Updates are different than support.
An update is work that we have done to the software to correct any problems, add new features, or change some things to make the program easier and more efficient. This is our labor. We charge for major updates. On average a major update comes out every 6 to 8 months. We've been charging $100 to $150 for a major update. If you are current and have support, updates are half price. Minor updates are free, and if you have an internet connection, they can be automatic.
