Areté Customer Solutions
The goal of the Customer Solutions Team is to strategically manage Areté’s relationships with customers by ensuring that applications are running properly and the user base has all tools needed to solve business problems encountered in the field. The Customer Solutions Team manages customer relationships by supporting application functionality and providing consulting and training.
At Areté, we strive to build a creative and constructive partnership with all of our clients. At the core of this partnership is proactive product support. Under the standard maintenance agreement, clients have unlimited access to telephone support during business hours for problem troubleshooting or restoration of functionality. After-hours support is available if an extended support agreement is in place.
Areté will provide support for the Licensed Program from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, not including national (US) or major religious holidays. Support will include review of the technical features of the products, but not product training per se.

The following services are provided with an up-to-date maintenance contract:
Support via Telephone
Our hours of support are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST Monday through Friday, not including national (US) or major religious holidays. Support will include review of the technical features of the products, but not product training per se.
Internet Support via Remote Access Software
Areté requires that the client have a valid copy of remote access telecommunication software, a high-speed modem (56K band or higher) and access to a direct telephone line or Internet connection at the License Location(s). Internet support is available during the same hours as telephone support. The preferred method of connectivity is broadband or web-based.
Upgrades to New Versions
Areté will periodically release new versions of the Licensed Modules, which will include any fixes to deficiencies and any enhancements Areté chooses to include unilaterally.
Areté will use reasonable diligence to fix any bugs without additional charge during the time that this Agreement and any annual renewals are in effect. A bug is neither a missing feature or enhancement nor a software deficiency.
