Methods of Contact

The Help Desk acts as a central point of contact for all technical support, including hardware and software questions and troubleshooting. Clients may submit requests online by e-mailing, using the client web portal, or calling (800) 453-8106 or (262) 522-6950. To ensure timely responses, please do not contact an employee directly.

Regardless of method of contact, tickets are handled in the order they are received and based on priority. See ‘Priorities and Response Time’ below for more details.
