Just got this reply to an issue I have had since January
With regards to the above issue raised. We have sought advice from our escalation department who unfortunately inform us that there is little else we can suggest to rectify the issue. I am sorry that in this case we are unable to resolve this for you as it seems to be related to your local environment.
So they supplied me a fix, then an updated fix which solved the issue but the problem would reappear which they said they couldn't get to happen. Does make me wonder if they will start using the local enviroment excuse for other issues that they can't be bothered solving.
And is it me or are they getting even slower? You phone them up and they tell you to use the web forms, but the web forms are taking 3 or 4 days just to get a response, bit of courtesy would be nice where they at least acknoledge getting the stuff.
What was the original issue?
If it's any consolation Simcfc73, there's one school I support out of many who are using Sims.NET and for quite some time they've received a range of error messages performing different tasks.
Their response to these problems are that they're aware of them (so they're listed on the knowledge base), but they don't know what's causing it or how to fix it. Brilliant first class support that :rolleyes:
Running a report with a UDF, think it was a foreign key error.

I want to know who people use for sims support be it capita direct or local support and what your experiences are good and bad.
What sort of service are we getting? What sort of service do we expect? How does it compare to other service providers?
Is it just that the product itself is badly written, implemented, maintained, updated, etc. and that causes support to be poor. Or, are the support teams just not doing what we want?
I think it's a bit of both.
We use our LA for our SIMS support and I don't have any problems - all issues are generally sorted within a day. Up to now we haven't had any major issues but any issue we have had are resolved either over the phone, dialing in remotely or from an engineer paying us a visit.

Our Service Desk Managers would like to hear from you if you feel that we have failed and in that way we can help our staff to better meet your needs. Details of how and who to contact are listed in a document in "Sticky Items" on SupportNet.
