Log A Support Ticket

First, please check our Service Status - if there are any issues shown, we are already aware of them and are investigating.

All support requests including ad-hoc requests for changes to existing software must be logged by sending an email to our support system.

  • Send an email to: support@sigmatechnology.co.uk
  • Use the Subject to provide a summary of the problem/request.
  • Attach screenshots of any errors if applicable.

Emails sent to this address are automatically logged as a Support Ticket, which ensures your request does not get lost or overlooked.

We will provide an initial response within the timeframe specified in your SLA, but we always try to respond as quickly as possible.

Our Support Process

Our support team follow specific processes.  Here is how we handle your requests:

  1. Review the information provided in the Support Ticket.
  2. Perform an initial assessment as to the cause of the problem.
  3. Categorise the Support Ticket, assign a Priority Level (1-4) and an estimated resolution date.
  4. Provide a response to the customer confirming receipt of the ticket and the estimated time to resolve (this step may be skipped if the issue is easy to resolve).
  5. Resolve the issue if possible or log the issue on our bug tracking system if it is likely to require further investigation and/or a software release.
  6. Close the issue, providing confirmation of resolution to the customer, or the tracking reference number for our bug tracking system.

Urgent Requests

If your website or services are unavailable, chances are we already know about it thanks to our comprehensive monitoring systems, but please do still notify us just in case.

Check there are no issues with your own Internet connection first, and you can also check our Service Status system to see if there are any availability issues with our servers.

If you are still having issues, please log a support request via email if possible (as described above) and then give us a call to alert us to it.

Telephone numbers and SLA response times are listed on the next page.

Contact Telephone Numbers

If you need to speak to us about any issue, the best way is to call our head office on 0151 433 3101.

Please only use our emergency / out-of-hours number if you have a genuine emergency or services are unavailable.

Priority Levels

To help us deal with higher priority issues first, all tickets logged are assigned a priority level, which is subject to change.  Priority levels and explanations are shown below.
