Emergency support

Salsa can provide premium support services to ensure you have the expertise you need 24x7x365, whether it’s for an immediate one-hour response support service, or additional 24x7 after-hours, standby support coverage.

Premium support hours overview

There are two premium support packages available to suit your needs. Choose premium emergency response support for quick response times and resolution during business hours, and then optionally add the after-hours standby support to provide additional coverage beyond business hours for an ‘around the clock’, 24x7 support commitment to quickly resolve and complete tickets.

Support options available

  1. Premium emergency immediate response support, which provides a response and follow up support by a Salsa expert within one hour.

  2. Optional after-hours standby support, to have quick response times from the above pack and augment your support to cover 24x7 including weekends and public holidays.

Engagement process

Our engagement process is outlined below:

  1. Review questionnaire or brief: Agency to complete a light questionnaire (or send Salsa a high level project brief) reflecting basic requirements and/or project key business drivers.

  2. Intake and alignment: Salsa conducts a free 30-45 minute intake phone call to align on scope, expectations and overall engagement requirements based on the questionnaire or brief.

  3. Maintenance onboarding: Website functional overview.

  4. Setup and familiarisation: Setup of code repositories and familiarisation of configuration.

  5. Establish process: Define, present and align on support process, SLAs, ticketing system and tracking, RACI and authorisations, change register and release management.


To ensure an agreed process is established and maintained for effective support the following outputs will be developed at the beginning of the support period:

  1. Code repositories set up

  2. Defined and agreed support workflow process

  3. Ticketing and tracking system agreed to and established

  4. Defined and agreed RACI and authorisations

  5. Defined and agreed release management process
