IT issues are inevitable. No matter how advanced a device or service is, the 2nd law of thermodynamics applies to computers as well.
At Emsisoft, we understand how frustrating technical problems can be. This is the reason you always have a real person to chat with you, and your email messages are addressed within a couple of hours, if not instantly.
Our dedicated support team is here to provide swift and effective solutions to all your concerns, whether they are technical, billing, or administrative in nature. With their expertise and your cooperation, you can expect a speedy and efficient resolution to any issue.
While nearly all reported issues can be resolved through our self-help pages, this blog article outlines the steps you can take to expedite the resolution process when reaching out to our Support Team.
You can contact us through our Help Pages, where you can use the Mail or Chat button, both options are accessible from the bottom left corner of the interface of our installed software, as well.
Alternatively, you can send us an email to [email protected] or initiate a chat by clicking on the chat bubble in the corner of any of our webpages.
For more complex issues, we encourage you to use email, which allows for detailed descriptions of steps taken, screenshots, and logs.
For quick questions, the chat channel is your best option, but please keep in mind that we need to verify your identity, which can be done by providing us the relevant order number or license key.
Regardless of the channel, please explicitly state that we have permission to access your workspace. Granting us access to view your workspace information is essential in replicating and resolving issues.
Here’s a summary of the crucial details you should include in your communications with us:
Provide a Clear and Detailed Description
When creating a support ticket, your description of the issue is vital. Emsisoft’s dedicated support team relies on specificity. Please include:
- The nature of the problem or request.
- When the issue first occurred.
- Any error messages or codes encountered.
- Recent changes to your system or software.
Clear and concise descriptions help our team to quickly understand the problem, avoiding unnecessary delays due to vague descriptions.
