Software Support and Maintenance Agreement

Québec Anglais Droit civil Non annoté

Software Support and Maintenance Agreement

When a business purchases a “turnkey” computer system, it often also enters into an ancillary agreement to obtain technical support and maintenance services. Such an arrangement is both an insurance policy for the business and a source of recurring revenue for the company supplying the services.

This support and maintenance agreement template sets out the specific tasks that the IT company will be expected to perform to provide the required technical support and maintenance. Note that this is not an employment agreement, because the service provider is an indepedent contractor.

Software Support and Maintenance Agreement

We recommend using this template when a client wishes to retain the IT supplier to also provide the necessary support and maintenance services for the computer hardware or software acquired from that supplier under a principal contract (this agreement being an accessory contract). If the computer hardware or software that is the subject of this agreement was not in fact acquired from the service provider, it will be necessary to make the necessary changes to this template.
