Softek are a Distributor, if you have a technical issue we would normally ask customers to initially log their problem with the local reseller who originally sold you the solution. They are trained, generally know your environment and are usually in the best position to offer you advice initially.
If making contact with your reseller is not possible, or if you would like further advice, or if you have questions about a product which you have not yet purchased, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone, by email, or log an official support ticket on our eSupport system which we will respond to very quickly.
Access to Softek’s online ticketing and self help system - eSupport - is also available to all. This system includes call logging / ticketing, call tracking, hundreds of relevant knowledge base articles, call prioritisation and essential technical downloads.
When necessary Softek make use of remote management tools for troubleshooting certain issues.

"The support Softek give us and our clients has been
nothing short of exceptional. The big problem we have is due to the
fact that most of our clients are Central Government Departments it is difficult, if not impossible for us to provide all the data Softek may
want in order to progress our request or help solve an issue."
"Yet, even with very little detail to hand and cryptic clues from us,
they still manage to grasp the issue or request and provide enough
information to help resolve any issues we pass to them. The knowledge they have of their Products is second to none, the
fact that we know we have such excellent support behind us only
strengthens our relationship with them and in turn our clients."
