Each implementation of ebs draws upon the 7 Products in the ebs Product Family. Combining 'core' and 'enhanced' components from each Product ensures your organisation benefits from the most appropriate implementation of ebs to suit your ambitions. Our Services, Training, Consultancy and Support Desk ensure you then get the very best out of ebs.


Day-one support for your ebs implementation provides support for any issues, updates to systems along with standard releases and bug fixes and security patches. Support services are delivered via email, phone or remote assistance via remote connection.

Additional, optional technical services are available to help manage the system. These services include:

IT Managed Service
Database administration
Application updates
Server Monitoring 
Back-up Management
Business Continuity (Disaster Recovery)
Weekend updates
Hardware provision and management.

Help Desk

Support is delivered through Tribal’s dedicated ebs Support Centres. The Support Centre specialises in ebs and Unity and does not handle any other system.
