Award-winning Support Services Delivering Needed Solutions with Exceptional Speed
Rimini Street Support Services are a one-two punch of exemplary support and significant cost savings. As the leading third-party, enterprise software support solutions partner, Rimini Street is Engineered for Support - providing clients with hyper-responsive support from extremely experienced engineers, through a model that focuses on true global support with an SLA of 10 minutes guaranteed response for critical Priority 1 issues. Independent, experienced, ultra-quick, proactive, tackling root causes as well as break-fix: Rimini Street expertly supports every aspect enterprises seek in software services: with 50% off annual support fees and up to 90% savings on total support costs.
A comprehensive support program that's different from software vendor services
Maximizing their profits, software vendors are incented to minimize labor, expertise, and other resources for delivering vendor support services while keeping their fees high. That can put uptime of business-critical enterprise systems at risk. Rimini Street has a singular focus: Deliver exceptional service. The Rimini Street ultra-responsive support program includes valuable services not typically included with standard software vendor support programs, including support for customizations, interoperability, and performance tuning.
Reduce cost and risk with expert, award-winning support
Fast response time means being back in business sooner. Instead of other support programs that pass tickets around, receive assistance from experts right when it's needed. The Rimini Street global product support services team is ready to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Critical Priority 1 issues are guaranteed a response in 10 minutes or less from the time the case is logged. Actual response time to critical inquiries is less than five minutes on average. It can be difficult to find that level of responsiveness and customer service with software vendor support services.
Free internal teams from self-service
Even paying significant annual fees — up to 22% of total software costs using software vendor support services1 — still finds many enterprises practicing self-service. Third-party support from Rimini Street emphasizes full service over self-service: each client is assigned a Primary Support Engineer (PSE) with 20 years of experience on average, backed by a team of functional and technical experts. Over time, clients develop personal relationships with their PSEs, who in turn develop a detailed understanding of their client's overall IT environment and operational needs. This direct access to expert-level engineering support on the front lines — usually unavailable through software vendor support — helps ensure prompt resolution of all issues, including issues in customized code, rather than internal teams hunting for fixes online and regression-testing large batches of fixes — receive support that serves.

Rimini Street adapts to what we want to do. It is truly an extension of my internal SAP support team. ”– Erik Looi CIO
There is a massive amount of technology involved, but the most important thing is how it impacts peoples’ lives.
It was refreshing to engage with a company that is really motivated and enthusiastic to go above and beyond to provide the needed support and help solve our problems.”
Without the right people, you have nothing. In the end, it’s all about the people you have on your team, and we have a great team.
One of the key components to realizing the vision was identifying a services provider that had a great track record of providing quality support and be willing to help take on the challenge of revitalizing MWRD’s environment. Rimini Street was that partner.”
