How Do Your Maintenance Plans Look Like?

How do your maintenance plans look like?

We provide one year warranty on labor. But we have been asked recently for a maintenance plan. What is your pricing, and what does it include? Is it just troubleshooting/training or does it include changes/moves? Does it have an SLA?

Thanks
