Product Feedback Process
When a "hands-on" approach to problem resolution is needed, customers and support team
members can "meet" online
via a secure internet connection that allows our
techs to link their computers to yours and experience the problem you are facing
We offer 24/7 Customer Support and all customers with a current Maintenance Agreement can contact the Customer Support team, free of charge. During standard business hours, calls that aren't answered
immediately will typically be responded to within minutes. Even when call volumes are at
their highest, our guarantee is to respond to inquiries within two hours. Rapid response
and accurate answers have led to some very positive feedback from our customers:
"I have ALWAYS been able to rely on your team. They are the BEST! Always helpful, always knowledgeable, and very polite. You could teach a lot of other businesses what customer service is all about."
- Rene B., Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center
"We opened our brand new facility with zero experience in booking software. The DEA staff were awesome to work with, providing training above and beyond the normal scopes of things, including custom setups and "handholding" through our growth stages. Support has been awesome...hands down. The product will probably do anything you want. You just have to know how to manipulate it to do it...and the support team is right there to help you without being condescending. Thanks for making us look good every step of the way! Keep up the great work!!!"
- Jerry A., Granbury Resort Conference Center
"The customer service technicians have been nothing less than
spectacular!" Paul S., Associate Director of the Student Center, Rice
"I just wanted to take a few moments to let you know how phenomenal
your support team is. I have worked in the IT industry for over 10 years and have never
encountered such a professional support format. They should be the model for all
IT organizations." Ryan S., Senior Specialist, Information Technology Support, Texas
"One of the best things about EMS is the support provided.
It is very nice to have such quick response to any of the problems we encounter.
Thank you!" Carol K., Calendar and Wedding Coordinator, First Baptist
Church of Houston
"In the past two years, I have implemented two software
applications in other areas of my business. It was then that I realized how superior
the DEA team are with respect to responsiveness, support and
expertise." Heather S., Manager of Hospitality Service, Leading Canadian
New Versions of Software
Keeping a current Maintenance Agreement each year ensures that you always have access to the latest

make it available to you quickly and efficiently via download from the
Support Center. (See below.)
The Support Center gives users with a current Maintenance Agreement access to a whole host of resources. Facing an issue that has been resolved in the latest EMS scheduling software release? Download the new version and all the accompanying documentation
and installation instructions any time it's convenient for you. Need to consult the online

The Knowledge Base is an extensive collection of commonly-asked questions and their resolutions
that we have compiled for easy access. From out-of-date prerequisite software to
misunderstandings about system functionality to general trouble-shooting tricks... if it's an
issue that is frequently raised, it's likely to be covered in the Knowledge Base. Current Customer? Access to the Knowledge Base is obtained through the Support Center. Log in now via the homepage in the bottom right corner.
Product feedback process
For more than 25 years, our customers have been the driving force behind our product development
efforts. Who better to comment on how the software should be enhanced than the people who use it
every day? In the Support Center is a form you can use to provide product feedback and
suggestions for future enhancements. Data from the form is automatically recorded in a database
that is consulted as we make plans for a new release.
