25.               SERVICE LEVEL OUTLINE – LIVE MONITORING
25.1            Background
Organisations sometimes require live monitoring of their staff outside of normal business hours or when they do not have the necessary people available in house to do this monitoring.  As a result, TOS works with experienced call centres to provide live monitoring as an additional component of the Service.  In particular, this means that a live person is there to respond in a way defined by You in the event of an emergency situation.
25.2            Service Description
You wish to improve the operational effectiveness of Your organisation and have therefore outsourced certain activities and processes to the TOS.  As such, the TOS shall provide access to a live monitoring service based on these requirements from the Commencement Date, and subject to the terms of this Agreement.
25.3            Scope
The live monitoring component of the Service will enable You to monitor Your workforce in an efficient way, support compliance with health and safety regulations and centralise some of the communications between field staff and the office. The Service is there to support internal and external emergency response teams (i.e. line managers and police/ambulance services). It is NOT a replacement for them.
25.4            Boundaries of Service Features and Functions
TOS provides You with a working monitoring system that you can modify and use in many different and unique ways.  However, the operation of the TOS’s Websites, Software and the maintenance AND the accuracy of the operational data AND the writing of accurate and effective escalation procedures, remains with You. For the avoidance of doubt, if You enter a poorly designed escalation procedure, such as, but not limited to, one without an end point or an undefined resolution, the consequences of which remain solely with You and you agree to indemnify and hold TOS and TOS Parties harmless against all such claims.
25.5            User Requirements
Your requirements as defined in this Agreement are for a system that can:
(a)                turn on or off the live monitoring component of the Service;
(b)               alert a live monitor in the event of missed check-in and give them the approved procedures to follow based on that alert;
(c)                end the alert after appropriate remedial action has been taken; and
(d)               provide logging of all such activities.
These are all provided through a Website and/or the Software being licensed as part of this Agreement and/or the Services, specifically the telephone system used by the call centre.
25.6            Indicative Service Level Performance Measures
System availability = 99%
Back-ups = daily
Target acknowledgement time for each received alert is five minutes or less.
25.7            TOS’s Responsibilities
The TOS will provide the people, processes and monitoring tools necessary for the Websites and the Software and will:
(a)                meet response times associated with the priority assigned to incidents and service requests;
(b)               generate annual reports on service level performance when requested and if possible; and
(c)                send appropriate notification to You for all scheduled maintenance if possible.
25.8            Your Responsibilities
Your responsibilities and/or requirements in support of this Agreement include, but are not limited to:
(a)                using the Websites or the Software in the manner instructed by TOS;
(b)               allocating sufficient staff training time to learn the system;
