Block of Hours

Expert Support at a Discounted, Flat Rate

An ideal solution for supporting basic moves, adds, and changes (MACs).

Take advantage of Cerium’s Block of Hours program to purchase pre-paid blocks of support hours at a 20% discounted rate. A cost-effective alternative to our standard flat-rate support. They are an ideal solution for supporting basic moves, adds, and changes, thus enabling your technical staff to focus on higher value business initiatives and projects. It is also a great way to supplement technical support when members of your staff are on vacation. Blocks of Hours are convenient to use; all it takes is a simple call or email. No requesting quotes or creating purchase orders, or obtaining authorization for each support ticket, so your issues can be addressed quickly and efficiently.
