View/Change Service Level¶
All the relevant information concerning Service Levels, under the context of the currently selected Account, can be inspected through the corresponding component of the User Interface. It is important to bear in mind that, when dealing with collaborative accounts, only the Owner or an Administrator of the account is given the rights to undergo such operations on behalf of the whole Organization.
How Service Levels are set¶
The service level is defined by the pre-payment that an account holder makes. When multiple payments are applied, we prioritize the maximum amount within its validity period.
Here's how it works:
- Upon signup the service level is initially set to
- When user provides a payment method, purchases allocation and pays the minimum amount the service level is set to
- When/if user next pays in excess of the minimum amount for
Proinstead, service level is set to
NOTE: validity periods for the same service level add up. In case a user pays the minimum amount and then adds another equivalent payment within the validity period, the total allocation can then be used within the combined period equal to twice the validity period time
Service Levels for Enterprise¶
Enterprise service level plans are designed for groups of users that represent an enterprise team and collaborate with each other on a regular basis. However, any user with a valid payment method can create organizations.
- the first organization per user is given $10 promo credit
- by paying $5,000 a user can secure 'Enterprise' service level for his/her organization
- entities created under the organization account will be charged according to
- other special rates are available upon request
Our users only pay for what they use, however we provide access to the product within a designated period of time - validity period. Any Unused credits at the end of the current validity period will be available (roll-over) into the next validity period, following another payment.
Any credits unused at end of a subscription period will roll over to any contiguous subsequent subscription, but for not more than one additional year. Credits are assumed to be consumed in the order purchased. Rollover credits do not contribute to the prepayment threshold for the renewal period.
