What Is a Service Level Agreement (SLA)? - an Overview

An SLA is an arrangement between two parties i.e. the provider of the service and the person making use of that service. It includes a set of deliverable promises that one is expected to provide to another under the terms of the agreement. Commonly, an SLA is seen between a company (service provider) and clients.

An SLA is written after careful judgement and assessments. An ideal SLA must define the statement of objectives, scope of services, service provider and customer responsibilities, performance metrics, penalties for contract breach, etc. There is a need for the SLA to be precise and should cater to the wants and requirements of the provider and the user. Hence, it is necessary that such agreements are drafted under the guidance of organisations such as Vakilsearch. Vakilsearch houses trained experts who will provide you with the exact guidance you need. Read on to find out more about SLAs.

Benefits of SLA

  • An SLA clarifies the scope and extent up to which the service provider can provide services and utilities. This removes the chance of unrealistic expectations.
  • An SLA acts as a document of proof for the person using the services as it elaborates the promised services in detail.
  • The SLA acts as a medium for the customers to show their grievances as it lists down the procedure of providing feedback and complaints.
  • AN SLA is an excellent mode of improving customer support.
  • SLA facilitates communication between a company and a client. This makes deals more transparent.

What Must an SLA Include?

  • Agreement Overview- This method has a primary agreement, including the parties including, the initial date and a general description of the services provided.
  • Description of Services- The SLA requires accurate information of each service offered, under all reasonable circumstances, with the turnaround times included. Service descriptions should describe how the service is performed, whether maintenance service is provided, what the hours of service are, where dependencies subsist, an outline of the methods and a list of every technology and application used.
  • Exclusions- Distinct services that are not implemented should also be built to avoid confusion and eliminate room for ideas from multiple parties.
  • Service Performance- Performance analysis metrics and performance levels are marked. The client and service provider should accept a list of all the metrics they will use to estimate the service levels of the provider.
  • Redressing-Compensation- or payment should be defined if the provider cannot properly fulfil their SLA.
  • Stakeholders- It clearly defines the parties involved in the agreement and establishes their responsibilities.
  • Security- All security actions that will be practised by the service provider are specified. Typically, this comprises the drafting and agreement on anti-poaching, IT security, and non-disclosure agreements.
  • Risk Management and Disaster Recovery- Risk management processes and a disaster recovery plan are established and communicated clearly.
  • Service Tracking and Reporting- This section defines the reporting structure, tracking intervals, and the stakeholders involved in the agreement.
  • Periodic Report and Change Processes- The SLA and all identified key production indicators should be constantly evaluated. This process is explained as well as a suitable process for making changes.
  • Termination Process- The SLA should define the provisions under which the agreement can be completed or will expire. The notice period from both sides should also be verified.
  • Signatures- Eventually, all stakeholders and approved members from both parties must approve the document to show their approval of every detail and process.

Documents Required

  • Statements of parties: An SLA should include a statement and description of all the parties involved in the agreement.
  • Purpose of SLA: This includes the objective and the main subject matter of the SLA. It is a statement to see what the SLA is set out to do.
  • List of services
  • Description of the procedure of service: This is a detailed explanation as to how the service will be carried out in order to deliver the promises made under the SLA.
