The support portal is intentionally off-network and should be used to report all issues. Please provide as much information as possible. You will be invited to assign a priority to the issue and we ask that you adhere to the categories described above. You will receive a ticket number relating to this issue. Please:
- use this ticket number in the subject line of all related correspondence
- refrain opening more tickets about the same issue
Internal Escalation procedure
Where an issue cannot be resolved by first line support staff, it will be escalated within our organisation as appropriate.
