ArcherPoint Support Plans for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central
The charter of our Help Desk is to provide timely response for our clients who need assistance with their Dynamics NAV or Dynamics 365 Business Central software and operating environment. The Help Desk is staffed with veteran Dynamics NAV/Business Central consultants averaging in excess of 10 years’ experience.
ArcherPoint has always offered and continues to offer access to the Help Desk on a time and materials basis with our Basic support plan. For some clients, this is an acceptable model and the one they choose. However, for others, an ad hoc support approach falls short in several ways, most notably in that it discourages seeking help due to cost.
Our unlimited support plans arose from a desire to create a mechanism that would encourage clients to call the Help Desk and talk about any topic related to their Dynamics NAV or Business Central software. We wanted to provide an environment wherein our clients could count on predictable response times and controlled costs associated with their day-to-day needs. We developed several plan levels so that clients can select a plan that best suits their needs and helps them gain the most value from their plan.
Support Plans are six month contracts, unless otherwise indicated, with monthly payments based on the chosen level of support.

ArcherPoint supports older versions of Navision, Dynamics NAV, and of course the latest Dynamics 365 Business Central versions. We will deliver our best effort to support our clients regardless of the version they use. However, Microsoft limits the support they provide to us based upon versions. Please refer to this link for a list of Microsoft supported Dynamics NAV versions.
Technical support services are available 24/7, 365 days per year (additional costs may be incurred for emergency support should a developer or consultant be required).
Additional Service Plan Benefits
Dedicated Support Representative - Clients who have selected a Sapphire or Diamond support plan are entitled to work with a Dedicated Support Representative (DSR). Along with providing assistance with a client’s NAV system, the DSR can:

These non-billable services are limited to four hours per week for Sapphire Level plan clients and five hours per week for Diamond Level plan clients. Any coordination services that exceed the allowed plan level limit will be billed at standard rates.
