* The upgrade process is not fully automatic. xTuple follows a best practices methodology of piloting all upgrades in a sandbox environment before going live. For XTN services including upgrades, xTuple works with you to schedule an upgrade to a sandbox copy of your database, to allow for pilot-testing by your key users. Following your acceptance of the sandbox upgrade, your production system upgrade is scheduled. The upgrade process should go smoothly; the software is designed to be updatable following prescribed mechanisms. If we encounter problems during upgrade due to data incongruities or local customizations, xTuple applies prepaid troubleshooting time to resolve those issues. Customers are always alerted, prior to billing additional hours at our standard rate, of any issue resolution requiring more than the prepaid time.
