Here it is (above) but why I have blurred out the image?  Our competitors would love to get their hands on this so we only share it with our trusted customers.  Hopefully that makes sense!

Give us a call if you want to see what our plans are and do tell us what you'd like to see in the releases planned for the rest of the year.

Start Software support stats for March 2017

It has been another good (but busy!) month for our support desk with 94% of urgent calls being resolved within 2 hours.

We're receiving too many repeat calls from a handful of clients and so we're giving extra focus in April to understanding why some Alpha Tracker servers are not performing as well as they could be.

Repeat calls (and lots of new clients) meant we had the busiest month ever with 684 calls received.

If you have a long-running issue, please do get in touch.  Don't ignore or put up with the problem, please do tell us so we can do something about it.
