Most organizations run core business applications, customizing enterprise software to meet their unique business needs. Timely and customized support of these modifications is critical to help ensure smooth operations and minimal downtime — which are the source of the majority of high-priority issues. Software vendors do not typically include customization support in their standard maintenance programs, forcing the need to hire expensive, external consultants or dedicate internal resources to support the business-critical customized code.
Customizing an ERP system addresses unique enterprise requirements and is vital for performance and differentiation. An improvement over standard ERP vendor support, Rimini Street third-party enterprise application support covers integral, mission-critical customizations — as if they were part of the standard, delivered product — at no additional charge.
Each Rimini Street client is assigned an experienced Primary Support Engineer to lead the resolution of issues efficiently and develop solutions that directly help address the support of custom applications. 65% of all cases filed with Rimini Street — and 85% of Priority 1 cases — relate to custom code issues. Rimini Street expertise in customized support for modified code, with direct knowledge of unique environments and modifications, helps clients reallocate their enterprise application support resources from supporting customizations to revenue- or value-enhancing projects.
The software vendor’s one-size-fits-all support model is designed to optimize their efficiency and operating margins, not the customer's. Their incomplete support program forces the hiring of external consultants or the adding of internal resources to support business-critical customized code. Rimini Street independent, third-party support includes custom application support for modified code at no extra charge.
