Maintenance optionsDelivered by the Service Harmonisation programmeGetting the balance right

April 2011

Openreach makes every effort to ensure the information in this report is accurate at the time of compilation, however, Openreach does not represent that it is complete and Communications Providers should check with Openreach for the latest available information. Openreach reserves the right to modify delivery criteria and delivery dates.


Confused l.jpg
Confused?

Don’t worry, it’s as simple as 1,2,3,4…

Simplicity due to the alignment and decease in number of previous service levels - 9 into 4

And, we’ve delivered four new service offerings you asked us for; Missed Appointments, Flexible Appointments, Repair Expedite and SFI2.

The following slides will tell you everything you need to know about the benefits of these service products…


What was service harmonisation sh l.jpg
What was Service Harmonisation (SH)?

Service Harmonisation (SH) was a phased programme spread over EMP Releases 1200, 1300, 1310 which simplified WLR and LLU service levels.

It offers you greater ability to tailor service levels to your customers’ needs.

Your ability to offer excellent customer service is underpinned by appropriate service packages, ones that enable you to offer your end users peace of mind, are easy to understand, good perceivable value, flexible and reflect their lifestyles. This is what Service Harmonisation delivered.

SH was created in collaboration with CPs, which started in April 2008. These CPs told us they were happy with the greater flexibility, simplification between LLU and WLR, better contractual service levels and enhanced functionalities to be offered.

As a programme SH encompasses decreasing the 9 current service levels into 3 new service levels and delivering new products; Repair Expedite (formally known as -6 Hour Repair) the new fourth service level, Flexible Appointments, Missed Appointments and SFI2.


Service harmonisation a brief history l.jpg
Service HarmonisationA brief history

LLU and WLR CPs received different levels of service

The differences (pre Service Harmonisation):

WLR Basic Level 1 customers receive service within 96 hours (Monday - Friday) whilst WLR Level 2 customers receive this within 48hours (Monday - Friday/Monday - Saturday).  Both are set against LLU StandardCare repair time of 40hours (Monday - Sunday)

These difference occurred for historical reasons:

They stem from the introduction of LLU into the market

The faster LLU time represents a ‘give’ following requests from Industry/Oftel. LLU was then seen as a business only product.

At the time it was not envisaged customers would wish to migrate away from IP Stream


The key benefits of service harmonisation l.jpg
The key benefits of Service Harmonisation

  • Got it wrong? We’ve got you covered

  • With expedite flexibility; if the service level your customer is on doesn’t meet their needs during a fault you can flex up to a level which does as a one off solution. 6-hour repair is available 24/7

  • It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4…

  • Simplicity due to alignment and decrease in no. of care levels; 9 into 4 (3 plus 1 new one - 6-hour repair making it 4)

  • We’ve put our money where our mouth is

  • 6-hour repair (L4) rental backed by SLG paid proactively, you don’t have to claim, this is the same for all the Service Maintenance Levels. Plus we’ve reduced charges and added better contractual service levels on all levels.

  • Clear? It’s crystal…

  • There will be clear light between each maintenance level so you can onward sell knowing your end user can see the difference


Previous end user perspective l.jpg
Previous end user perspective

Purchase of WLR, end user receives:

A copper line capable of carrying voice calls to SIN349 standard

NTE 5 socket installed in their home

In tariff base level maintenance level (96 / 48 hour)

Ability to add “Broadband” type services

96 / 48 hours

  • Purchase of MPF, end user receives:

    • A copper line capable of carrying voice calls to SIN349 standard

    • NTE 5 socket installed in their home

    • In tariff base level maintenance level (40 hour)

    • Ability to add “Broadband” type services

40 hours

The underlying service is clear to end users regardless of whether their Communication Provider is using WLR or LLU


Service harmonisation aims making it easier for our customers to do business with us l.jpg
Service Harmonisation aims: Making it easier for our customers to do business with us

To create Clear Light between levels so you can see the value of trading up

To move the portfolio to a straightforward single aligned set of service packages

To implement an Openreach working week aligned with modern working patterns

To ensure Service Maintenance Level 2 has the same service between WLR and LLU at a lower price on WLR than the closest alternative to LLU StandardCare

To reduce the price differential between WLR and LLU

By delivering SH we did not have to deliver system separation (at huge expense) as our customers saw more value in having SH

Build on our excellent service record by meeting customer demand for new and improved services

SH is therefore the initial step towards full cross-portfolio synergy between WLR and LLU in the (now overlapping) market place which is what you asked us for

The new products l.jpg
The new products

Flexible Appointments – Service Maintenance Level 2C and T2R

Early Morning (EM) Appointments (available between 07:00-08:00)

Evening (EV) Appointments (available between 18:00-21:00)

Saturday Appointments with two slots (AM - 08.00 to 13.00 and PM - 13.00 to 18.00)

Appointments not in tariff are at a single price of £12.50 for LLU and WLR and it is the intention this will be the price for NGA also in the future.

Missed Appointments

Where Openreach has failed to attend within an agreed appointment slot at the end user’s premises resulting in an automatic payment being made to the CP. Currently this is only paid on WLR. R1200 introduced Missed Appointments on LLU to give parity with WLR and increased our missed appointment payment to £40 to align with EU Missed Appointments.

Repair Expedite (6 Hour Repair)

A new super-fast repair product offering a 24/7 repair capability with a commitment from Openreach to clear a fault within 6 hours from 23rd November 2009. Available as a rental product from R1310 (as Level 4) and on demand using a tactical process from R1200 (now withdrawn) and strategic expedite from R1310.


The new products continued l.jpg
The new products continued…

SFI2

LLU CPs will order SFI2 when their end user has a problem with their Broadband but the copper path appears to be working ok.

SFI2 will give the CPs a greater choice than the existing product, allowing them to specify whether an engineer visits the end user premises or the exchange. It will also enable them to tell us the type of service they want testing and which elements of the network they are happy for us to look at.

Our engineers will carry out a series of prescribed checks and tests with the latest Next Generation Tester to determine where the issue is and what they need to do to fix it. This is important because it addresses the current customer concern that the existing process relies too heavily on engineer judgement.

The SFI2 investigation will provide an increase in first time resolution, transparency of the engineering activity and greater clarity of what the CP has been charged for.


Implications of service harmonisation l.jpg
Implications of Service Harmonisation

  • LLU StandardCare lines lose Sunday but gained Saturday appointments

    (in line with what LLU CPs wanted most)

  • ISDN2 lines gain Service Maintenance Level 2 in tariff for the same price as Service Maintenance Level 1 today

    this is to bring ISDN2 in line with the Business or Premium market, with Service Maintenance Level 2 as standard

  • WLR Level 2 lines get the same service, but at the lower Premium Level 1 prices (i.e. WLR premium line rental price). This is a saving as Premium lines gain Saturday working for free

  • WLR StandardCare Premium lines gain Saturday working for free!

  • LLU changes from a 40 hour fix, to between a 48-24 hour fix; and a 20 hour fix, to between a 24-11 hour fix in order to align with WLR and gain a tangible End of Next (Half) Working Day fix

  • WLR gain faster fixes across the board (PSTN, ISDN2 and ISDN30)


Things to be aware of l.jpg
Things to be aware of…

If you are using a portal and order a product / service you have not configured internally you will get KCI (Keep Customer Informed) messages back you cannot read

Any WLR2 Like for Like Transfer of a Level 4 line will result in a Letter Feed that cannot be read (low risk of occurrence)

Service Maintenance Level 3 removes the current perception of 24/7 engineers from Level 3 and Enhanced care (Chronically sick and disabled) [click here for detail]

Basic Level 3 customers will be paying £6.30pa more for Service Maintenance Level 3 service

CPs must appoint all engineer visits to customer premise faults for Service Maintenance Levels 1 and 2


Slide14 l.jpg

Let’s break it down…

  • Overview of what SH means to each customer group; WLR Basic, Premium, ISDN, LLU and NGA.

  • And what it means per each of the SH service maintenance levels and products…


Wlr basic customers l.jpg
WLR Basic customers

Can now take Flexible Appointments to get Saturday appointments am & pm plus EM & EV appointments

Money where our mouth is; CP pays £12.50 for Saturday, Early Morning or Early Evening appointment but if our engineer doesn’t arrive in this time slot we delete this £12.50 charge and pay the CP £40.00.

We appoint every engineer visit to end user premise fault on Levels 1 and 2making it easier to do business with us;

and these faults come with an engineer appointed visit up front – unlike today when engineers can turn up to the surprise of end user or the end user is out incurring increased costs (£85 abortive visit charge) and time in fixing the fault.

Getting a better deal because you know exactly what it is you’re getting

Raised CP concern

We understand CPs fear a worse service as we’re currently repairing in often ½ the time we’re contracted to (96 hours). With Service Maintenance Level 1 the contract is 48-72 hours so it is possible faults will take longer to repair but it’s a better deal and gives clear light between levels 1 and 2 making it easier for CPs to market accordingly.


Slide16 l.jpg

WLR Basic customers with pre-SH care Level 2

  • Price decrease and simpler

  • Potentially fixed a whole day quicker

  • Get Saturdays for free

  • Mapping to SH Service Maintenance Level 1

    Going from 72 hours to EONWD = potential to fix fault a day earlier. Price decrease as no longer pay prompt care element (saving £13.56 a year, the cost of prompt care which was only added to get Saturdays). Simpler package to understand without necessity for having extra service levels added like prompt care.


Slide17 l.jpg

WLR Premium customers

  • Get Saturdays for no extra cost

  • Potentially fixed a whole day quicker

  • Mapping to Maintenance Level 2 so they get Monday - Saturday as standard instead of Monday - Friday.

    Enough daylight between this new Maintenance Level 2 and Maintenance Level 1 to allow CPs to up sell


Wlr premium customers with pre sh care level 2 l.jpg
WLR Premium customers with pre-SH care Level 2

  • Decrease in price – now get Saturdays for free

  • Potentially fixed a whole day quicker

  • Mapping to Service Maintenance Level 2 so get Saturdays for free

    (saving £13.56 the cost for Level 2 per year - prompt care)


Isdn2 customers on pre sh care level 1 l.jpg
ISDN2 Customers on pre-SH care Level 1

  • Get Saturdays for no extra cost

  • Target fix of a whole day quicker; EoNWD instead of 48 hours

    If we don’t, we proactively pay the CP a months line rental

    Mapping to Service Maintenance Level 2 so they get Monday - Saturday as standard instead of Monday - Friday.


Isdn2 with pre sh care level 3 l.jpg
ISDN2 with pre-SH care Level 3

  • Shorter target fix times backed by SLG

    If we don’t we proactively pay you a months line rental

  • Get Saturdays for free (though, currently get Saturdays and Sundays)

  • Mapping to Service Maintenance Level 3

    Implication

  • You currently get 24/7 because we over-exceed but now will be cleared up to 9pm because Flexible Appointments comes as part of the package. Instead of 24/7 fix it will be by end of next ½ working day (Monday –

    Sunday).


Isdn30 customers l.jpg
ISDN30 customers

  • Shorter target fix times backed by SLG – months rental back

  • Mapping to Service Maintenance Level 2 or 3 (in tariff) or 3 (TotalCare)

    Implications

    You currently get 24/7 because we over-exceed but now will be cleared up to

    9pm. Instead of 24/7 fix it will be by end of next ½ working day (Monday –

    Sunday) but no Sundays if mapping to Service Maintenance Level 2.

    The pre-SH care Level 3 is mapping to Service Maintenance Level 3

    and applies to all ISDN30 customers.

    24/7 is available through 6 Hour repair on L4 rental option or through the

    expedite option (expedite option not available to Level 2 lines).

    For your large high risk customers you may wish to take L4 rental and market

    as ‘insurance’ against ‘assurance’ like the British Gas four star cover model.

    Mathematical models through face-to-face selling can be applied to these

    customers to show them the benefits.


Wlr3 customers l.jpg
WLR3 customers

  • WLR3 ISDN2 Maintenance Level 2 customer will get it cheaper

    (other ISDN2 maintenance levels pays the same)

  • Double integration spend if you implement SH on WLR2 and then migrate to WLR3. On WLR3 many of CPs consume via a TPI which, from 24th April 2010, will already have the solution in place

  • New Level 4 rental and expedite option

  • A limited expedite facility already exists on WLR3 (Service levels 1 or 2 to 3) and won’t ever exist on WLR2 as the WLR2 product is being withdrawn


Nga customers l.jpg
NGA customers

NGA customer adoption

  • Super-fast Fibre Access (SFFA) is partly about TV Delivery within the consumer market therefore Service Maintenance Level 3 & 4 is likely to have high demand from SFFA customers as it’s more product appropriate re the type of technology the line is used for.

  • At the present time there are no plans to offer Expedites on NGA


Llu customers l.jpg
LLU customers

  • Money where our mouth is; if our engineer doesn’t arrive in their appointed time slot we pay you the CP £40.00

  • SFI2 is available on Saturdays and is backed by an SLG for the first time

  • SFI2 gives you control over how your customers Broadband faults are tackled

  • LLU CPs are our NGA CPs so SH will be seamless as it is in place for both products

  • New Level 4 rental and expedite option

  • A limited expedite facility already exists on MPF (EnhancedCare Plus on demand, available to MPF EnhancedCare lines only). Service Harmonisations brings full multi-level expedite facilities allowing a line to expedite to any higher service level

    Implication

    LLU CPs will lose Sundays

  • Appointments are available at a single price of £12.50 for LLU and WLR and it is the intention this will also be the price for NGA in the future


Messaging per product package29 l.jpg
Messaging per product package

Maintenance Option 4 = 6-hour repair rental and expedite

(6 hour repair & expedite are different pricing options of Maintenance Option 4)

  • This is a brand new product offering! Old days best you could get was TotalCare 24 hours or EnhancedCare 20 hours; now on Level 4 it’s just 6 hours!

  • Level 4 – pay £48 a year (or £4 per month)

  • Expedite is a multilevel product (accelerating up all levels)

  • New 24/7 repair within 6 hours - big request from CP customers so Level 4 is directly meeting customer demand.

  • On rental offering; we pay SLG if not there in 6 hours then another SLG payment if we cross another midnight ‘Money where our mouth is’

  • On expedite offering; we pay SLG only if we miss the SLG applicable to your rental option, but no expedite fee if over 6 hours

Deployment plan as agreed with industry for r1300 and r1310 l.jpg
Deployment plan as agreed with industry for R1300 and R1310

At then end of April 2010 the new Service levels will be implemented by Openreach regardless of which platform, XML schema or portal a CP is on.

Service Harmonisation is not an “Opt-in” for CPs

  • Original R1300 functionality will be delivered in two releases: R1300 and R1310

  • Service Harmonisation Schemas will be deployed in R1300 (April 2010)

  • Service Harmonisation functionality will be switched on in R1310 at the end of April

  • For any CP taking the R1300 schema prior to R1310, Openreach will map orders to the existing portfolio and reject orders from new functionality e.g. accept a repair on a SH Maintenance Level 3 and map to Total/Enhanced Care, but reject a repair order for Level 4


Cp deployment l.jpg
CP deployment

This is not ‘one size fits all’ – different customers will have different consumption models

Implementation varies depending on the products they consume from Openreach and the platforms they consume with (i.e. legacy or strategic)

So tailoring the impact and change per customer is key

What happens if a customer isn’t ready to consume at strategic launch?

They can continue business as usual but some minor risks exist (see slide 12) but Openreach will deliver against the new service maintenance levels and CPs will automatically enjoy the new SLAs and receive proactive SLGs where Openreach fail

They need a Schema, what is it and why do they need it?

A Schema is the version of the software (XML) a CP is using to interact with us. To take the extra Service Harmonisation elements they need to upgrade to R1300. They can do this in house or through a Third Party Integrator (TPI)

Costs, training and implementation will therefore vary per CP

Please speak with your Sales & Relationship Manager who has more information

* Some minor risks exist, please see Implications slide no. 12

Enhanced level 3 vs service maintenance level 3 4 l.jpg
Enhanced / Level 3 vs. Service Maintenance Level 3 / 4 customers who’ve asked for simpler and more flexible service level solutions that meet todays working hours; Service Harmonisation provides three repair options and one repair & provision option which meet this demand and create a level playing field.

EnhancedCare and Level 3 were both 24/7 products with contractual fix times (SLA) of 20 and 24 hours respectively

Service Maintenance Level 3 is not a 24/7 product, engineers will work 07:00-21:00 only. Level 4 will remain 24/7

EnhancedCare and Level 3 had target response times of 4 / 5 hours respectively. Openreach respond with a first update within this time and fix within the contractual SLA. Approx. 6% of faults are reported 18:00-07:00

There was a perception that Openreach fix faults / send an engineer to site within the response time. Although it is in Openreach’s best interest to have an engineer available within the requisite period, otherwise we would fail the clearance of faults within the timeframe, the response time is a target aim and is not contractually binding

About 60% of faults are still attended within 8 hours (the majority being completed in hours), the same percentage as pre-SH

Response time were removed under Service Harmonisation (excluding ISDN30) and faults are cleared within SLAs. Please note 6 Hour repair SLA time are considerably shorter than Enhanced / Level 3 SLAs. Maintenance Level 3 also has a shorter SLA time than Enhanced / Level 3 which further enhances the products from what customers received pre-SH


Chronically sick and disabled customers l.jpg
Chronically sick and disabled customers customers who’ve asked for simpler and more flexible service level solutions that meet todays working hours; Service Harmonisation provides three repair options and one repair & provision option which meet this demand and create a level playing field.

Return

Openreach has no visibility regarding whom the end user is in most cases and would therefore expect a CP to either rent Level 4 on the chronically sick, disabled and vulnerable end user or rent Maintenance Level 3 and expedite to Level 4 if restoration is required either between 7pm – 9am the following day or a faster fix is required. The decision on what Level to put a customer on is however wholly dependant on what the CP wishes to do and their individual business model, which Openreach cannot set (e.g. A CP may choose to put the line on Maintenance Level 1 and expedite to Level 4 if this better meets their business model).

The charge levied by Openreach to the CP for Levels 3 and 4 is higher than the previous rental of TotalCare basic; however the SLA on a Maintenance Level 3 could be as short as 11 hours, compared to 24 hours on TotalCare basic.

WLR TotalCare and MPF EnhancedCare were 24/7 products whereas Maintenance Level 3 is 07:00-21:00. All CPs with chronically sick, disabled and vulnerable lines should investigate as to how often their end users allow an Openreach engineer to visit their premises between 21:00-07:00 to determine whether Maintenance Level 3 or 4 is a better option for their customers on a line by line basis.

Service Harmonisation reduced the number of different care levels available to a more valuable and distinct set. The price for the higher maintenance of a line and will relate to the service provided by Openreach which, for Levels 2, 3 and 4, is the same for both Basic and Premium WLR lines in the same manner as it is for LLU lines (e.g. Maintenance Level 3 is £37.20 in addition to the Maintenance Level 2 price).


Mapping examples wlr l.jpg
Mapping examples (WLR) customers who’ve asked for simpler and more flexible service level solutions that meet todays working hours; Service Harmonisation provides three repair options and one repair & provision option which meet this demand and create a level playing field.

Return

A WLR PSTN basic Level 1 customer paid £100.68 per year and received a 96 hour Monday-Friday SLA
