Alliance Service Partners

Alliance understands the importance of maintaining the continuous operation of valuable archiving libraries and systems in order to access to the digital assets they protect. As a result, Alliance has developed the Authorized Service Provider (ASP) program that is designed to provide every customer with consistent, quality global maintenance services.

 

Alliance ASP Program Overview

Authorized Service Provider (ASP) Program Overview

Alliance ASP’s offer worldwide support services for Plasmon and Alliance equipment and systems. All ASP’s are required to meet stringent standards for quality service with a singular focus on resolving issues in a timely manner. This ensures that all customers receive the highest level of care and support.

Alliance’s base of worldwide ASP’s offer timely and cost-effective support solutions for Plasmon™ and Alliance branded equipment. Alliance selects only excellent providers with quality service operations and trained field engineers. All ASP’s are backed directly by Alliance’s engineering and development teams. ASP’s act as an extension of the Alliance service team, ensuring that customers receive the same high-level quality care and support received directly from Alliance.

Non-Authorized Service Providers
Non-authorized service providers do not have access to the all the above benefits. Their service capabilities are not certified by Alliance and it is unknown as to the level of service that can be provided by them. A non-authorized provider is not backed by Alliance and will not be entitled to receive or distribute the latest firmware and software for Plasmon™ and Alliance products including updates and patches, product maintenance and feature enhancements.

Benefits of the ASP Program
Alliance offers training for all ASP partners. Alliance’s comprehensive training program ensures ASP technicians are trained and certified to diagnose, analyze, and repair our equipment, so customers can be confident in the quality of service. With ASP’s unlimited access to Alliance’s support team, problems and issues are resolved promptly and proactively. Alliance provides the highest level of expertise through our engineering teams when servicing your Alliance and Plasmon brands of products.

--Kenneth Allen, Health Systems Specialist, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care

HIPAA Compliance at a Reasonable Cost
