QCare Contracts

QCare Engineer at workQuantel builds products to last and it backs them up, year after year. Quantel support has been recognised as the industry standard in Post and Broadcast for 30 years. At Quantel, we don't cut corners. We take single vendor responsibility for our products and software, so your problem is our problem. When you pick up the phone to talk to us, you are always talking to Quantel trained engineers at our 24/7 Support Center. this is the mission-critical heart of our customer support operation. It is staffed by experienced, highly trained engineers who have the knowledge and skills to quickly identify and solve problems and get your system back running at 100% very rapidly.


The sophisticated remote diagnostics built into Quantel systems often enable faults to be fixed over the telephone line. Spare parts are on hand in remote warehouses worldwide to provide Advanced Service Replacement parts to get you back up and running in the shortest possible time. And if the problem can't be fixed remotely, then our worldwide dedicated field-based engineering teams can quickly be on site.

When you purchase any new Quantel system, we provide a standard 12 month warranty. It's free and it provides more care than many other manufacturers' schemes:

  • Replacement parts free of charge for one year (return to factory).
  • 9 to 5 (local time, Monday to Friday) phone, email, fax & remote diagnostic access to the Quantel Helpdesk or the local Customer Support office.
  • Access to Support Resources information via the web.
