For clients subscribing to Support, the following is included:
Resolving Errors With Your Site
If you experience error messages with the system then please report them to us by clicking on New Ticket and recording as much information as possible.
Quick Advice & Guidance
If you have a quick question about the site and can't find the information in the client portal FAQ and solutions sections, then we will endeavour to provide reasonable answers to these as soon as possible via the Support Desk. "Quick" means about 5 minutes, as opposed to longer handholding or setup sessions which will be treated as chargeable Training & Advice (see below). GDPR compliance is strictly chargeable.
Site Updates & Core Software Enhancements
We provide regular site updates including core enhancements to the software for free. Major new modules or add-ons to the system may incur additional charges.
We provide security updates for free as part of site updates.
We provide hosting for your website on our servers. You are given 1Gb of disk space and 50Gb of monthly bandwidth within your support charge typically. If you exceed these limits then you will need to purchase the next level of disk space / bandwidth. We have to charge for this extra usage to continue to run and administer an efficient server farm, backup system and technical support.
Your package may include an email service, if so, we will provide up to 5 email addresses as standard which you can access via webmail or synchronise to your local machine or mobile devices. Please note, we do not provide a service to set up your local machine or mobile devices, but we will provide you with the mail server details so you can do it.
Our system's core ecommerce functionality is tested and supported for current major browsers on PC's and iPads. We do not provide browser testing and support for other devices nor web pages that you enter onto the CMS.
We take regular snapshots of our servers which includes your website and data. These are system backups for use by us if a server crash forces a data restore. We take daily backups for up to 30 days if possible. Go into the Export System to see what is available to download via CSV's.
Chargeable Support Services
The following services are outside of the normal subscription service and are chargeable.
Training & Advice
If you require training for new users, refresher training or would like general advice on using the site or ecommerce, then you will need to book a session with us and we can get the right person to provide that training or advice. These sessions are charged at our standard hourly rates. Please raise a ticket detailing what you need and entitle it: Training & Advice Request.
GDPR is a legislative change for which we have updated our software and provided articles on how the system handles it.

Module Design, Implementation, Support & Training
This is due to the bespoke nature of the Module system for creating custom data and styling for your particular business.
Ongoing Performance Optimisation & Auditing
Once a website is live, the content used on the site is very likely to be changed over time, such as adding images, videos, scripts etc and this may affect performance or optimisation, especially as web standards are constantly evolving, such as core web vitals. We can perform audits and performance analysis to identify and implement improvements to keep sites up-to-date to agreed levels that is compatible with our core software. This should be regularly undertaken as part of every website's ongoing maintenance and update policy. Read more.
Data can be restored for a site from our system backup at our normal charge for 1 hour of time. For example, if you needed to restore a content page that has been overwritten or to see previous prices in your online shop. At the time of your request we can list what backups are available for restore. This should only be requested as a last resort because it is a lengthy process for restoring from a system backup and may take some time to complete.
Direct Developer Support
Direct support from the REC+ developers is only possible via a special support agreement to allow direct access via the support ticket system, rather than through the helpdesk.
