4. Requesting Service
4.1 KREDO Support Requests
Tesseract offers different ways to contact support team with requests for KREDO support.
4.1.1 In-Built Ticketing system
This is the recommended method for requesting assistance unless the issue requires an immediate response or a customer password reset. When you use the web interface, your request will be logged as a ticket. Your request will be visible to all appropriate technicians who are available to assist you (rather than just one person), and you can keep track of your ticket progress directly on the helpdesk site. Requests made via the web will be processed during normal hours of operation.
4.1.2 Phone (+91) 9964447400
Phone service is available through the Tesseract during 10am to 8pm IST. Messages left during off hours will be processed the next business day. Due to the requirement for identity verification, password resets can only be processed over the phone.
4.1.3 Email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Email requests will be processed during regular business hours. While this request will be logged in our ticketing system, the web interface ticket will be automatically associated with your department and campus contact information, and it will be visible to the appropriate technicians without requiring manual assignment by the tech help desk.
5. Hours of Coverage, Response Times, and Complaint Resolution

6. Maintenance and Service Changes
6.1 KREDO Server Maintenance Schedule and System Status
All IT-related service outages are published to the KREDO status page. Scheduled maintenance is not included in the calculation of availability metrics.
There are three categories of service outage:
- Planned Outages: A planned service outage is work that is planned and scheduled as part of system maintenance and updating. These outages are published on the KREDO status page a minimum of one week prior to the scheduled outage.
- Unplanned Outages: An unplanned service outage is work due to an unforeseen event or urgent repair to prevent failure. Unplanned service outages are given priority on a case-by-case basis, depending on the type and urgency of the failure. Unplanned service outages will be posted to the KREDO Status page immediately upon Tesseract team becoming aware of the need for the outage.
- Service Failure: If a service failure occurs, Tesseract will post notice of the failure and expected time of resolution to the KREDO Status page immediately upon Tesseract team becoming aware of the failure.
6.2 Guidelines for KREDO Maintenance Window
A maintenance window is a defined period of time during which planned outages and changes to production services and systems may occur. The purpose of defining standard maintenance window is to allow users of the service to prepare for possible disruption or changes. Tesseract encourages all services and systems to use the planned maintenance windows for the application of non-emergency changes. If a service does not have a planned maintenance window, the following guidelines apply:
- Planned outages should be performed between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunday.
- Planned outages and changes should not be scheduled during peak business days.
7. Reviewing and Reporting
7.1 System Performance and Availability Reporting
The following annual performance and availability reports will be published for review:
- First-contact response to incidents and service request, based on information from the technology help desk ticketing system.
- Outage metrics measure Planned vs. Unplanned Outages and their root causes; the Change Management metric is the ratio of unplanned outages caused by failed changes to total outages.
7.2 SLA Reviews
The Designated Review Owner (“Document Owner”) is responsible for facilitating regular reviews of this document. Contents of this document may be amended as required and will be communicated to all affected parties.
