Service Warranties:

Upon completion of any services project, Column Case Management LLC offers a 60-day warranty period. Within this warranty period Column will fix any bugs, defects or workflows that were in scope at no charge to the client.

The agency can cancel or return the application only if the product is not working as advertised and is not functioning based on what was outlined and agreed to in the statement of work and the functional requirements. With that said, there would be a 30-day remediation policy to fix the open issues with a defined and agreed upon plan before a return or cancellation would go into effect. Column would only refund 4 months of annual subscription or maintenance agreement in a 12-month contract cycle. This return or cancellation clause would be invalid if the application is in the DIR and the customer is having issues due to their internal infrastructure, such as the under-sizing of hardware, CPU, Memory, or DIR network problems.
