Dosha  Cloud ERP Service Level Agreement and Services

(Updated September 25, 2020)1 



  1. This Service Level Agreement and Services Specification (“Specification”) sets forth the general terms and conditions 

applicable to the Single Tenant SaaS or Hosting Services (“Service”) that either Dosha  or its Affiliate (“Dosha ”, “we”, or “our”) will provide to you (“you” or “Customer”). This Specification is subject to the Cloud Services Agreement, Master Customer Agreement or similar agreement (“Agreement”) between you and Dosha . 

  1. Our duty to furnish and your license to continue to access and use the Service depends on your compliance with the terms of the Agreement, including payment of all applicable fees. In the event of a conflict between a term in this Specification and a term of the Agreement, the terms of this Specification will control. We reserve the right to modify this Specification at any time, and if such modification substantially impairs your rights or the Service hereunder, you may elect to cancel the remaining contract term for this Service. 
  2. In conjunction with your Service, you may request and we may agree to provide other services (“Other Cloud Services”), which are features and applications licensed to us by third party providers (sometimes referred to as “Third Party Providers”, “Third Party Software”, and/or “Third Party Applications”). Any such Other Cloud Services must be included in a properly signed Order and will involve additional fees. Where we have agreed to provide Other Cloud Services our responsibility is limited to enabling access to the specified Third Party Application, providing and maintaining the server on which the Third Party Application resides, and backing-up the business data you enter into such application if we host it. Our responsibility for Other Cloud Services is subject to this Specification and the Agreement. Because we are not the developer of the Third Party Applications, we are limited in our ability to support them. 
  3. Application Support for Dosha ’s applications is included within Dosha ’s single tenant SaaS Service and is separately available for hosting services (i.e., where Dosha  is hosting your on-premise or perpetual Software license). If you subscribe to our Single Tenant Hosting Services, we strongly recommend that you also subscribe to application Support for the Software licensed hereunder. Dosha  is not responsible for Service issues that arise from your failure to subscribe to application Support. 
  4. Application Support offered hereunder does not include support for Customizations or for Third Party Applications, which is separately available. Dosha  is not responsible for Service issues that arise from your failure to subscribe to support for Customizations and/or Third Party Applications. 
  5. The Service provided hereunder does not obviate the need for appropriate and customary services for application installation, configuration, and implementation (such as installing technology at your business premises, converting your business data to a format that can be processed by the Service, and training). All of these services are your responsibility. Unless we have expressly committed to a fixed number of hours to help install, complete the set-up, and convert your data, any installation, set-up, and data conversion services we provide will be billed at our then- current rates on a time and material basis. 

B. SERVICE OVERVIEW. Dosha  uses commercially reasonable efforts to furnish our Single-Tenant SAAS and Hosting offering, which consists of three main Service elements, each of which is described below: Hosting Services; System Management; and Services Delivery. We have designed the Service to help accomplish two main goals: (1) First, to allow you to access and to use Dosha ’s Software (and certain hosted Third Party Applications) which you have ordered (but, you may only access and use those Software features which you have ordered); and (2) Second, to help ease your operational and administrative burdens of managing the environment in which your ERP cloud environment and related software applications reside. 



  1. HOSTING. Hosting involves managing the Hosting Resources (noted below) which permit us to host the Dosha  and Third Party Applications which you have ordered. The hosting aspect of our Service is designed to enable you to
    access and to use our Software (and, if applicable, hosted Third Party Applications) substantially in accordance with the applicable Documentation. Please note: 
    1. Upon a mutually agreed implementation date, we will enable the Software you have ordered. This enablement may involve additional services and fees. 
    2. We will provide, maintain, and support the hardware server(s) enabling the Services, and we will make the Services available to you pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Specification and the Agreement, and any other applicable Addenda. 
    3. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, subject to the terms stated herein and to scheduled maintenance.

Service Target Measurement 

When you report an Incident to Dosha , the Incident will be prioritised by us in accordance with the severity of the Incident in our reasonable opinion. The Targeted Response Time will start if reported during the applicable Service Hours, or if made outside the Service Hours, upon the next time the Service Hours commence. 



Dosha  commits to provide 99.5% availability of the Services (taken as a whole) during each calendar month of a Customer’s subscription term (“Uptime Commitment”). 


Customer is eligible to receive a service credit if Dosha  does not meet the Uptime Commitment during a calendar month and the failure negatively affects Customer. The service credit will equal 10% of the EMS subscription fees paid for such month for each full percentage point availability of the SaaS-based services fall below the Uptime Commitment, but not to exceed 50%. For example, if availability of Dosha ’s SaaS-based services during a calendar month is equal to 97.5%, then the available credit is equal to 20% of the subscription fees paid for such month. 

Dosha  will calculate Uptime Commitment performance using its systems logs and records. All calculations exclude time attributable to events outside of Dosha ’s or its suppliers’ reasonable control and scheduled maintenance requirements. 


To receive a service credit, Customer must request the credit by emailing its Customer Account Manager or other Dosha  designee in writing within 30 days following the end of the calendar month that Dosha  did not meet or exceed the Uptime Commitment. 

Customer must be in good standing to receive a service credit hereunder. Any service credits will be applied to a future subscription invoice. 


Non-production (e.g., test and trial) environments are expressly excluded from the Uptime Commitment.
