T&C's in progress

After having to discuss the details of some issues Wesley had raised, we look to have a good understanding with Top Hat across the board and can expect the T&C's and the project planning for the implementation project TEL023 to now proceed smoothly.

Contract Awarded

With Top Hat winning and clearly the quality product, we now need to agree on the contract T&C's.

There are some concerns with the apparent attitude from Top Hat on some issues/bugs, but we shall get a clearer picture on this once we set out what we want to to see fixed now/fixed soon/know the score on.

A SLA is going to be needed.

A Payment Schedule is requird too.
