Removal of the Email Channel for Flowmon Support Request Submissions
Aug 9, 2022
Sept 1, 2022
What is changing?
Support request submissions for Flowmon products via email will no longer be supported as of Sept 1, 2022.
Why are we making this change?
This change will decrease the amount of “anonymous” tickets that are created. Requests submitted anonymously require additional time spent on verifying the customer’s information and collecting additional information. Our team would better serve our customers by devoting this time toward case resolution. We hope that the outcome of this change will be to decrease resolution time while bettering the overall customer experience.
Am I affected?
If the preference of your organization is to submit support requests via email, you would be directly affected by this change. This change only affects the email submission channel. Other submission channels will not be affected. The remaining channels of submission will be via phone or the Kemp Support website here.
What do I need to do?
If you currently submit support requests via email, our recommendation would be to submit future support requests via the other supported channels.
Can support requests be updated via email or will communications be restricted to the channel by which the request was submitted?
This change only affects the initial submission of support requests. Customers will continue to receive updates via email and will continue to have the ability to provide updates via email.
I have support requests that were opened via email before Sept 1, 2022. How will these requests be affected?
Such requests will be unaffected by the change. Customers can continue communicating on these support requests using their preferred channel. No other action is required.
What are some of the advantages of making this change?
Decreased resolution times
Better customer visibility within the Progress Support organization
More opportunities for “self-help”
Improved customer experience
More efficient collection of customer data
Reduced spam/junk emails
What happens to support requests submitted via email after this change takes effect?
Support requests received on or after Sept 1, 2022, will receive a response directing the customer to another channel to submit their request.
Who do I contact if I need help or have other questions?
Please contact Kemp Support with any additional questions or concerns.
