GAITHERSBURG, MD and BERNE, SWITZERLAND: Patton Electronics (USA) together with Patton-Inalp (Switzerland) have introduced two new premium support services, the sister companies announced today.

Since 1984, Patton has provided gold-standard free lifetime technical support during business hours for every product sold—including free downloadable software upgrades.

Unique within the electronic-communications industry, Patton’s free-support proposition drives down total cost of ownership, delivering significant competitive advantage for Patton channel partners and end customers.

Now, Patton’s new platinum-level Premium Support and platinum-plus Premium 24/7 Support address the high-end service requirements of Telecom carriers, Internet service providers, and other organizations that need guaranteed response and resolution times or evening and weekend service. 

“We're responding to customers,” said Burton A. Patton (Burt), EVP. “They  asked for service-level agreements with guaranteed response and remedy times. Our platinum-plus service enhances our unique gold-standard Free Support with global 24x7 coverage.”
  • Platinum Premium Support guarantees a 2-hour response time and 8-hour remedy time during regular business hours for any critical incident.

  • Platinum-Plus Premium 24/7 Support offers world-wide, around-the-clock service anytime,day or night. Courteous and competent Patton support staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address major or critical incidents anywhere in the world.
Not that you’ll need it. Among VoIP-industry technogeeks, Patton’s SmartNode gear is venerated for “set-it-forget-it” stability. Still, one finds assurance in a robust support organization. And there are of course certain businesses that desire or demand that 24x7 safety net.

Burt Patton elaborates, “Patton does business in 142 countries, providing free support in at least 10 languages. SmartNode VoIP equipment is deployed and operating in 105 countries. We have trained and certified nearly one-thousand SmartNode specialists for the global workforce.”

Patton operates Technical Assistance Centers in Gaithersburg, Berne, Budapest, Lebanon, India and Vietnam, providing world-class customer support for Patton channels and customers throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Last month Patton announced its IPv6-ready SIP-Trunking VoIP Gateways are now shipping. Recently the company’s CEO, Robert R. Patton (Bobby) was apointed Chair of Maryland STEM Project Advisory Committee, following on the heels of news that Patton's SmartNode VoIP product line has won the 2012 Internet Telephony Excellence award.
