High quality supported by SLA's
Service Level Agreement concerns the services that the client company may expect from its supplier, in a measurable and specific way. For the client company, a service signed under these terms means that there are several guarantees that the commercial link will be transparent, since if any previously established point or target is not met, fines may be imposed on the supplier company, which may reassure the client.
