Clients who have chosen not keep their Practical Cover up-to-date have the option to pay for technical assistance as required. Each support inquiry is $165 per hour or part thereof. 

Keeping your Practical Cover up-to-date entitles you to access all major and minor upgrades throughout the year, keeping you current with the constantly changing data needs of the agricultural and financial aspects of your industry. Included in your support package is access to our help desk, along with our 24/7 support tool, the PS Knowledge Base.
Practical Cover works as follows:


12 months of Practical Cover is included in the purchase price of your software program. After this period you will receive an invoice for another 12 months of cover. This fee entitles you to all of the benefits listed above.

If you require assistance and you have allowed your Practical Cover to lapse, you have two options:

1) Pay for technical assistance from our help desk as required. Each support enquiry is $165 per hour.
2) Reinstate your Practical Cover. Cost is backdated and calculated based on when your cover expired.

It is far more economical and manageable to keep your Practical Cover up-to-date.
Upgrades, the Data Warehouse and the PS Knowledge Base are only available to clients whose Practical Cover is current.
