Standard Support

Email first-level support and you’ll get a personal response from a real technical support agent — an expert in SMS API methodologies and database integration, who uses best practices in accordance with FCC (USA) and/or CRTC (Canada) guidelines.

General inquiries are met with a best effort response during regular business hours Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm (ET), excluding statutory holidays.

What’s a priority

Priority 1 Ticket: Critical Live Application Failure. This represents a total loss of service and/or a service degrade that renders the API SMS feature as unavailable with no remedy. This is not for SDK services, or clients still in development.

Priority 2 Ticket: Service Degrade. This represents intermittent service disruption such as SMS Gateway unavailability, and degradation of service response on messaging. This is not for SDK services or clients still in development.

Priority 3 Ticket: General Disruption. This represents service inquiries, upgrade requests, and development questions.

Swift SMS Gateway® customers may request the priority of their ticket as a support inquiry, but we determine your ticket’s validity at all times. This assures a proper quality of service and the best mean time to respond for our clients.

What’s my SLA?

You have a formal 99.9% SLA (Service Level Agreement) with Swift SMS Gateway® beyond a best effort the moment you pay us a support fee. This represents SMS Gateway availability, the availability of our dashboard where you log-in and manage your sms services with us, the ability to send a message across our network(s) and to be successfully transmitted from our demarcation, which is the point where our network ends. Connecting to over 800+ mobile carriers globally, Swift SMS Gateway® provides the best SMS service you can expect.

Got a beef?

If you think we have dropped the ball — ever — let us know. Call us toll-free at 1-800-264-7141 and tell us personally. Your dispute will be reviewed. If Swift SMS Gateway® has failed to meet our stated MTTRs and/or your SLA, then you’ll receive your next month’s Support service fees for no charge. By all reasonable means, Swift SMS Gateway® will make it right.
