OmniServer Support & Maintenance

You want your OmniServer implementation to successfully operate over time with HMI, SCADA, MES, Historian and other client applications that it supplies process data to as those client applications and Windows operating systems are updated when new technology becomes available.  

All new license purchases include 1 year of support & maintenance to help you achieve that goal. Support & Maintenance can be renewed on an annual basis and can be co-termed with other product licenses you have purchased from Software Toolbox.

We can also work with you to flexibly provide pro-rating to co-term your OmniServer support/maintenance renewals with support/maintenance contracts you have for software from other vendors (such as your HMI, SCADA, MES or Historian provider).

How Support & Maintenance Pays

  • Free updates to the latest version of whatever edition of OmniServer you have purchased
    • Support for latest Windows Versions
    • Support for latest OPC Specification Updates
  • Unlimited email support and up to 4 hours of phone support per month during our normal business hours. 
  • Priority response from support staff with OmniServer and detailed protocol knowledge, with the goal of responses within 2 hours during our normal business hours.
  • Assistance in licensing, installation and configuration of the product
  • Guidance in troubleshooting potential product issues and working to provide workarounds until product patches/updates can be made to resolve the issues
  • Application troubleshooting advice, though configuration and debugging of your OmniServer protocol is not included (hourly consulting services are available).
  • Re-registration and/or transfer of your license to a new computer or re-installation due to hardware failure
  • Priority access to paid professional services

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I get help if I am not on support?
    Assistance is available as paid professional services if you are not on support, or you can re-instate your support and maintenance agreement. In the event we are extraordinarily busy, support and maintenance agreement holders receive first priority for paid services. We recommend that you reinstate support, as that will give you priority access to paid professional services. Contact us to discuss your options.
  • If I do not renew support, will my software stop working?

    The product licensing will NOT stop OmniServer from working just because support is expired. 

    However, if you are not on the most current version, we cannot guarantee that the product will work with newer Windows Versions, Windows Updates, if you are not on the most current version of the product.

    Keeping an active support and maintenance agreement helps you ensure compatibility with operating systems and compilers.  Additionally, active support and maintenance provides access to our support team if/when any issues require assistance.

  • My support has lapsed, can I re-instate it?
    Yes, you can re-instate your support and maintenance agreement for OmniServer. The cost is typically approximately 50% of the cost of a new license.

    Please contact us for a quotation on reinstatement for your specific licenses.
  • Can I cancel my support and maintenance agreement?
    Support & Maintenance Agreements are non-refundable. If you no longer wish to continue support and maintenance for your OmniServer license, simply choose not to renew at the end of your current term.
  • Can I put all my Software Toolbox products on a common renewal date?
    Yes you can, and we encourage you to put all product licenses purchased from Software Toolbox onto a common agreement.

    If you purchased your license(s) through one of our channel partners, please work with them to choose your co-term renewal date and they will contact us.

    If you purchased your licenses directly from Software Toolbox, please contact us to obtain a quote. Be sure to include your requested co-term renewal date.
  • Will I be notified before my support and maintenance agreement expires?
    Yes, we typically send out renewal reminder notifications around 60 days prior to the expiration of your current agreement.

    Please ensure that we have a valid email address for the person(s) that handle support renewals for your licenses, so that they receive the notifications, and if the contacts change, please update us.
