Requesting Upgrades as Part of an XpressCare Plan Entitlement:

AVST does not automatically ship upgrades for customers who are entitled as part of XpressCare. Resellers should place a no charge purchase order to AVST on behalf of the customer, including at a minimum the system serial number and customer name. The reseller is responsible for all shipping charges associated with that order.

Coverage is during business hours unless the system is down. Upgrades are not included. Per incident rates are based on the age of the system and whether support is provided during business hours. Billing is in 30 minute intervals with a one or two hour minimum
depending on the plan.

Renewal Guidelines for XpressCare

AVST resellers have access to view their support plans by customer on PartnerXpress ( – see “XpressCare Contracts” from main PartnerXpress menu. Access to this page must be enabled for a particular user, and can be requested by contacting an AVST sales representative. In addition, AVST notifies resellers via e-mail when expiring XpressCare contracts are due for renewal. Designated reseller support contract representatives will receive a monthly e-mail from AVST listing all contracts recently expired or due for renewal within the next 90 days.

Renewals for XpressCare must take place within 30 days of expiration of an existing XpressCare plan. After 30 days, customers must purchase a software upgrade to get back onto XpressCare. Renewals purchased will maintain the original renewal/expiration date. Resellers can move the renewal/expiration date by purchasing 13- months, 14-months, or 15-months of XpressCare.

Once the customer is ready to renew their XpressCare plan, the reseller should place a purchase order to AVST just like any other new purchase. The reseller can request an XpressCare Confirmation letter from AVST to provide to the customer.
