Our
OrangeCare Support Plans

The peace-of-mind technical support

In April 2014 Keystroke launched our "Annual Support Plans" (ASP) for customers looking for ongoing Act! support with greater cost certainty than they'd have with the traditional "pay as you play" service. 
In 2016 these annual support plans evolved into what we now call "Orange Care", which represents a better value for the customers, and whose pricing is more in line with their needs.

These programs have been a great success, and we think this is partly due the expansion and upgrading of our support team. We have also added so many perks to the Orange Care program the last two years we thought it would be useful to provide an update on the contents of the support packages available.

VIP support plans have a fixed time limit per year, with a purchase limit of one per year. Regular VIP and Diamond VIP are NOT mutually exclusive as you can buy one of each in a single year since they involve different levels of service. OrangeCare limits are fixed at 30-minutes per day multiplied by the number of subscribers. Usage beyond the daily limit would either be billable or deducted from an existing VIP

Auto-Renewal

Only OrangeCare is auto-renewed, but the customer always has the option to decline. We invoice one-month in advance to ensure customers have an opportunity to decide before their renewal date. We keep detailed records of support utilization for all our plans so customers can make an informed decision of their value

With VIP's, we contact the customer multiple times in advance of their renewal to give them the opportunity to renew on time, and both save 10% and carry-over any unused time

  • Keystroke boasts the biggest and best Act! support team in the industry, with coast to coast support that is available from 9AM - 8PM EST Monday through Friday. Due to our offices being located in both Canada and the United States, we're frequently open when one of the two countries is celebrating a national holiday.
  • All phone calls are toll-free across North America by dialing 1-833-ACT-BOLD or 1-800-857-0558.
  • Unlike with Swiftpage Support, OrangeCare includes setup and support of our Actcessories (including HHC, Act4, 4Act!, Knowtifier, and any other add-ons we make or support), as well, ensuring your entire Act! eco-system is covered. 
  • Must be on an Act! Premium Subscription plan, be an active hosting subscriber with Keystroke, or have five or more seats of supported perpetual Act! licensing. The initial Orange Care contract must be bundled with a VIP contract, but is not required with on-time renewal.
  • OrangeCare includes Level 1 & 2 Technical Support
  • Keystroke employs Act4support to ensure our customers receive the fastest, most accountable support experience available

OrangeCare covers Handheld Contact support too

MobileCare for Handheld Contact costs $120/account/year, but with OrangeCare Premium Support you get MobileCare for HHC at no extra cost. As Keystroke owns Handheld Contact, all the premium technical support staff at HHC are also available for Keystroke customers, so you get two support plans for the price of one.
Additionally, all our certified Act! Consultants receive extra HHC training to support our regular Act! customers looking to complete their CRM experience with the best mobile solution for Act! on the market - Handheld Contact.

The Fine Print

  • OrangeCare Renewal Invoice: Renewal invoices that are renewed "on-time" using our online renewal tool will automatically receive a 10% discount. Renewals that are processed less than 30-days late for any reason will be prorated at full rate with no abatement. Renewals processed more than 30-days are considered a new contract, and would be renewed for a full-year at full-rate with no no fee abatement. 
    Orange Care Plus "VIP time" must be consumed in that contract year. Unused time will not be carried over under any circumstances.
  • Proration: The first year's Orange Care support plan must be a full year, but can be renewed on a prorated basis to be coterminous with a customer's Act! subscription.
  • Exclusions: Orange Care is exclusive of Level 3 support, which is involves more complex work such as repairs, migrations, imports/exports, conversions, report building, and advanced troubleshooting. With the exception of Orange Care Plus, regular Orange Care plans does NOT include consulting services such as training, development, customization, project work, or business consulting.
  • SOW: Service that is beyond the scope of Orange Care or in excess of the daily support allotment will require a VIP Plan in place, from which the additional time would be deducted. In the event of such overages or upcharges, Orange Care subscribers will be advised in advance. In cases of Orange Care Plus, these subscribers would be eligible to use thank bank of VIP time.
