Service Level Agreement (SLA)

About

We strive to exceed our clients expectations whenever possible. Our Service Level Agreement (SLA) explains what support, at a minimum, clients will get from us. It is in place to set proper expectations about the service level that we can consistently provide.

Our SLA helps ensure that all clients have a fair amount of support. It helps us reserve time to market ourselves, improve our service, and take care of our team. We work to exceed our SLA whenever time and resources allow.
When this level of guaranteed service is not adequate, we provide options for extra support for additional costs. Please understand that our SLA is subject to change due to things outside of our direct control.

Please understand that this document is only a guide. It is superseded by our Terms and Conditions.

Scope

Our Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to all requests for work sent to meddkit or meddkit team members, regardless of the channel of inquiry. Channels of inquiry include, but are not limited to, e-mail, text message, website chat, website forms, phone, and social media.

Keep in mind that we provide clients with more support than detailed in this SLA during the implementation period. The implementation period is defined as the thirty calendar days following the date of the meddkit contract signing. The SLA does not apply during regularly scheduled meetings between meddkit and meddkit clients.

Marketing Content

The follow section applies to clients receiving social media and marketing content services from meddkit. Social media and marketing content is defined as the complete or partial delegation of writing, reviewing, editing, scheduling, or posting digital media online on behalf of our clients.

Content Draft Frequency

The content frequency is defined in the client’s order form and signed agreement with meddkit. It is the number of content drafts that will be prepared for the client, at a minimum, over a given time period. Keep in mind that the client is ultimately responsible for approving content drafts. Less content may be posted than estimated if less content is approved by the client for any given time period.

Client Feedback Period

After content drafts are prepared, they are submitted to meddkit’s editorial review. Following editorial review, content drafts are submitted to the client for feedback and final approval.

If the client does not cancel or edit the content within one week of submission to client, it will be considered approved by the meddkit team. The content will then be scheduled for publication.
