SMART Software Maintenance

Smart Communications Inc., is the developer and owner of all SMART software programs listed on this website. SMART provides software maintenance through continuous improvement (CI) and Six Sigma programs. SMART offers an optional annual software maintenance program for a fee. Clients can use the maintenance program to update and enhance their SMART software investment. The algorithms for language programs continue to evolve and improve.

The annual maintenance program is offered after the 60-day software warranty. Software maintenance is for 12 months from the date of purchase.

Upgrades and Enhancements

Software maintenance is provided on the following basis:

Software Upgrades. SMART continuously improves its software with new releases that contain algorithm improvements.

Clients who have purchased SMART software maintenance automatically receive all upgrades, subject to the terms and conditions of the software license agreement. (See the MAXit Writer's Guide.)

Technical Support. SMART offers technical support in English, by email, GoToMeeting (remote access) and telephone.

These support services include updates for the product documentation and access to the SMART Technical Support Team.

Technical Support is available for software on Windows 10, Windows 7, Adobe FDK, Webx UltraAuthor, PTC Arbortext Editor, JustSystems XMetaL API and HTML5.


SMART support includes these actions:

• Advise on correct use of product features.
• Analyze software error messages.
