Our support plans were implemented on 1 Jan 2012 after 5 years of completely free after-sales service. Whilst it was our intention to continue our free high priority service, we found it increasingly difficult in the face of rising costs. In order to continue to provide our excellent service as well as keep costs down, we have devised the following cost effective plans which will continue to provide the best of support for your business critical document delivery processes.

Free Support

Priority Support (see definition below) will be provided at no charge during the 45 day Evaluation Period as well as the Startup Period, defined as the first 60 days beginning on the date of purchase of a product license.

After the Startup Period, free support will be limited to:

  • Self-service using resources provided on the product website.
  • License activation reset for the purpose of re-imaging the disk on which PDF-eXPLODE was installed or moving the license to a different PC
  • Providing a download link for the current or previously purchased versions of the PDF-eXPLODE setup program
  • Customer database lookup/update of contact information, license ID and password
  • Re-send a copy of an invoice

Priority Support

Priority Support is provided at no charge during the Startup Period and is available for purchase for a 12-month period provided that Priority Support has been purchased for all current licenses. So if you have multiple Desktop licenses, you must purchase Support cover for EVERY Desktop license.

  • Help installing, configuring and validating proper operation of PDF-eXPLODE software.
  • Help diagnosing and solving problems with PDF-eXPLODE software where the software does not perform as advertised or documented.
  • Help diagnosing and solving problems with PDF-eXPLODE software as a result of User permissions, security or other on-site issues.
  • Product updates (e.g. Version 4.0 -> Version 4.1) and temporary fixes but not major upgrades (e.g. Version 4 -> Version 5).
  • Responses will be made by e-mail, phone or Skype at the support provider's discretion and may require use of a remote connection to the customer's PC.
  • A response will be provided within 24 hours from the time of initial contact, excluding weekends and holidays

Customer Feedback

  • Karen Skipper, I.T. Department Manager, LaMotte Company, Chestertown MD, USA says:
    "Customer support is top notch! I emailed a question and got an answer in 15 minutes. You can't beat that."
  • Craig Moniz, Financial Systems Analyst, SAGE Publishing, USA says:
    "We could not be happier with the priority service that 3000AD Systems and Mark Fonseca provide – sometimes within minutes of our email request for ‘Help!’ ”
  • Roger Cann, Business Information Officer,, UK says:
    "Allowing for the time difference, every e-mail I have sent – and there have been quite few – has always been answered straight away with good sound advice. Other suppliers I have dealt with sometimes take days to respond to a support call.”
  • Robert Jurewicz, Business Development Coordinator, Gardens Home Management Services, Florida USA says:
    "And the after sales support from 3000AD Systems, developers of the product, is courteous, fast and second to none."
  • Angela Meharg, Developer,, Toronto, Canada says:
    "... and the support is superior. Prompt responses to emails and questions, and a tireless search for the best solution to any problem we may have encountered."

  • and the list goes on......
