Centaur Software provides its customers with ongoing software support for all its products, which we believe is critical to ensuring our customers’ satisfaction. Our ongoing support is offered under annual agreements with renewable terms and includes general product support via telephone/email, Remote Access Support via Broadband Internet, software upgrades, product and industry enhancements (i.e: HICAPS Link, Medicare CDBS) and more.
Our customer support and services are recorded via Customer Service Management software (ticketing software), so each support request is tracked under each individual customers profile. This assists our Support Analysts by allowing them to see previous issues for the individual customer as well as perform searches for similar issues reducing resolution times.
Centaur recommends that customers obtain the services of a local hardware IT Technician for general IT/hardware support.
