Title: EDU Support Is Now Available
Post by: Che Johnson on June 26, 2013, 04:28:58 PM
Hello All,

I just wanted to announce that EDU is now providing some paid support options.  Originally this project was to be non-supported however many schools have had some difficulties installing, configuring and deploying the clients. In addition to the helpful forum links and knowledgebase we are now introducing support options to our EDU schools and universities for those who would like to purchase these additional services. 

As we were looking the best possible way to make support affordable we decided to provide pricing at $2 per license of support.

In addition to the following current EDU support services, Premium Support includes:

Toll-free telephone support
Remote access assistance from our dedicated team
Unlimited priority email support
Remote tutorial training
Assistance with the installation and configuration of the management console
Assistance with client deployment
Assistance with Console configuration (SQL setup)


If you will have any questions please feel free to contact edu@avast.com

I've just installed Avast Endpoint Protection for education.  My license is installed and we've deployed some clients.  Next year when it comes up for renewal, since it was free, what is the process I need to go through to renew the license?

License renewals will be available 30 days prior to the end of your license validation but it will also be free.

What is the process to renew our license? I am now within the 30 day renewal window. I've also added more systems to my network so I'll need to increase the client count, please.

Thanks. I'll send them an e-mail. The last time I talked to them, they said that a dashboard was in the works for us to renew the license. I thought maybe the process had changed...

I sent an email to "edu@avast.com" last week and haven't heard anything back.

What's the normal turnaround time for something as simple as a quote inquiry?

The process seems vague and unclear - I'm assuming that's because it's new but it certainly doesn't instill much confidence in the company or product.

Seems like this should be updated as this is $2 / user now for support.

Turn around is quite fast, typically in less than 30 minutes but please keep in mind we're only available until 6pm EST and not available during the weekends.  Our hours are from 6am to 6pm EST.

I am leaving my position and need to change the contact/account email for our account, how do I do that?
