An ALS is in addition to a cooperation agreement. It is a document that covers service quality agreements. This way you know what you have with each other and what you can expect from each other. The supplier and the customer.. B, for example, a back-office service provider and a temporary employment agency, enter into an agreement that roughly describes (commercial) agreements. Although this is sufficient in many cases, the complexity of cooperation can lead to the separation of specific agreements. In this case, ALS can be valuable. A good ALS starts with clear agreements on service. What is included and when are there additional services?

 The service received by the customer as a result of the service provided is at the heart of the service level agreement. Service-by-service reference to relevant service level specifications in the various detailed agreements or annexes.
