A 'request' is the way that the team will now refer to support calls, enhancement suggestions and bespoke developments questions. Effectively, any time you contact the Kx support team, we will log the contact as a 'request' to allow us to continually track and improve our service.
Absolutely. We know how important it is to you to have the opportunity to talk things through with a member of the support gang. All that changes is that we will log those support requests via the new KxSupport.
We’ve created demos that show you how you can register, create requests and check for updates on KxSupport.
KxSupport will hold all new requests going forward and existing open requests will be transferred over in due course. All prior requests will be retained and handled by our team as they are currently.
We'll be continuously updating the knowledge base with training videos, release notes and supporting documents. This is where you can access all the information that you see in the customer log-in area of the current website.
