Your ProCARE renewal cost is based on the model & software options you have. This is different for every setup.
ProCARE starts at $1,495 per year for a 16 Bay 6 Core with no software upgrades.
As an example, a mid-range, 16 Bay 16 Core server with the Media Management Suite would cost $2,995/year.
Please inquire about specific pricing on your configuration.
We have thousands of users in Europe, the Middle East & Asia Pacific that rely on ProMAX Platform every day.
If you need help outside of our hours of M-F, 8am to 8pm ET we have a few suggestions:
- Contact the dealer you purchased from. All ProMAX dealers are trained and can offer basic support
- Go to https://support.promax.com/knowledge and type in your question/issue we have an extensive knowledge based with lots of video tutorials.
- Open a ticket at https://support.promax.com/knowledge/kb-tickets/new
We make every effort to respond to tickets created outside of business hours as quickly as possible once we are open.
If you need to have a 100% guarantee for emergencies, we suggest our ProCARE Plus option.
We usually have 2 larger releases per year, and 2 smaller releases per year.
The larger releases tend to include updates to support the latest OS's and new features.
The smaller releases tend to focus on bug fixes.
That's not a problem. We can get your server back on a ProCARE contract. However, we offer a discount for customers who stay continuously on ProCARE.
Please keep in mind, for servers purchased after July 1st 2019, the hardware warranty will not be reinstated if ProCARE lapses for more than 90 days.
For ProCARE Customers, we 100% guarantee a response to a ticket/question within 4 business hours (M-F, 8am to 8pm ET)
For ProCARE Plus Customers, we 100% guarantee a response to a ticket/question within 2 business hours (M-F, 8am to 8pm ET)
That said, if we waited that long to get back to you, we'd be pretty disappointed in ourselves. We are usually immediately available, however, when we are not, it is rare to wait more than 30 minutes for a response.
We push to provide a lot of value for your ProCARE contract. However, we understand that some clients opt out of ProCARE. If you don't have ProCARE we offer
- Our online knowledge base (Free)
- Per Incident Support ($399/incident)
Please note, per incident must be purchased prior to connecting with our support staff. That will slow response down. Per incident covers a single support ticket/issue and does not include software upgrades.
We understand not everything fits in during normal business hours. Customers with current ProCARE contracts do have the ability to pre-schedule evening & weekend services at the following rates.
- Pre-scheduled evening/weekend services: $295/hr
- Evening/Weekend Remote Installation: $1,995
- Evening/Weekend Onsite Installation: Contact us
Evenings & Weekends are based on anything outside of M-F, 8am to 8pm ET.
These services must be pre-scheduled and are subject to staff availability.
ProCARE Plus is the only way to get access to our 24/7 365 call center, which will provide the 2-hour SLA for emergency support at no additional charge, beyond the cost of ProCARE Plus.
If it is outside of our normal M-F 8am to 8pm ET support hours and you have a system down emergency, we do offer:Per-Incident Emergency Ticket
- Cost is $995 & must be pre-paid via credit card
- It is subject to both sales & support availability
