Block Service Hours

Pre-paid support you use at your own convenience

Like a voucher, Generation-e’s block service hours, or B-Serv, entitle you to services upon redemption.  B-Serv is purchased in blocks and can be used as you require engineering resources to fix problems, provision training, or perform maintenance or support. Use of B-Serv is based on a flat hourly rate. The formula is simple:

  • One hour of work equals one B-Serv hour. It doesn't matter which level of team member performed the work, what kind of work was done, or whether it was on-site or remote;
  • The clock doesn’t start ticking until our engineer arrives on site - so travel time is not included in the B-Serv you use;
  • Remote support is charged in half an hour blocks and on-site services incur a minimum charge of two hours;
  • If the work needs to be done outside of standard business hours, (8:00 am until 6:00 pm Monday to Friday) it is billed at double the business hours rate.

Using Block Support Hours

When you purchase B-Serv, you get way more than just at call access to Generation-e’s team of experienced expert engineers.

  • You get comprehensive free remote monitoring via our world class Generation-e Monitoring Service running from our Network Operations Centre (NOC), which alerts you to potential problems 24x7x365;
  • You get usage reports monthly to keep track of the frequency with which you are using your B-Serv hours;
  • You get value for money. For a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee, you have access to our entire engineering team.

Engaging support using B-Serv is very easy. Simply log into our self-service support portal, call our dedicated support line on 1300 660 100 or email us at Whichever option you choose, your case becomes tracked in our CRM.  Within one hour, we will respond to your case. The first port of call tends to be to try to work through the problem remotely, but in the instance that your issue cannot be resolved quickly and efficiently that way, we despatch a field-engineer to work through the problem on site. Emails are sent to update you whenever a case is opened, updated or closed, but you can also view the status of your cases online so that you are always in the loop.

Whether you are an existing Generation-e customer or are new to our solutions and services, B-Serv can be used to support and maintain your infrastructure. To purchase a block of B-Serv, please contact us today on 1300 553 088.
