Most systems we install are set up with remote access (unless customer does not allow access) so most changes and issues that come up, Optima can handle in house.

If the phone system is in failure causing a severe disruption in business, the guaranteed response time for a tech to arrive on site is 4 hours from determination of the issue, unless equipment is required which in some cases may delay the response time. If the problem is a minor system issue, (less than 25% of the phones are not operational or for programming changes/problems that cannot be resolved remotely for any reason that is not impeding on the customers ability to run their business) a 48 hour response time will be guaranteed. Note that even for “minor” issues we strive to respond immediately to all requests.
