Customer Services - An Essential Key to Your Success


HelpDesk Done Right

We take pride in the level and quality of support for all our customers. We genuinely care about your success and will move mountains to help you get the most out of your software. Customer support is not an afterthought; it is absolutely essential to producing customer satisfaction. For too long many businesses have neglected support services or even worse, outsourced this function to uncaring and inept contractors in foreign countries. That's no way to do business.

Here's how customer support should work and what we actually do every day:

  • Toll-free number (800) 280-0240 in the U.S. and Canada.

  • Full-time, expert staff of technicians available from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern Time Monday through Friday.

  • We do not use an automated call answering system. When you call us you will be speaking to an AMT representative who will direct your call as needed to the appropriate extension to handle your issue. In the rare instance a representative is not available, leave a voicemail and they will call you back ASAP.

  • Dedicated e-mail support address: amt-support@amt-software.com This mailbox is shared with all technical support personnel. E-mail inquiries are given the same priority as phone support.

  • All support personnel and functions provided directly by AMT Software employees from our Bloomfield Hills, MI. office. We do not use an off-shore call center or contractors to handle your calls or e-mails.

  • All phone support is provided by technicians for whom English is their first language.

  • Fast response time. If we can't give you an answer over the phone because a problem requires more investigation, we will always get back to you as soon as we can. Usually by close of business the same day.

  • Everyone gets an answer. We do not leave open support calls regardless of the circumstances.

  • Legitimate defects are entered into our AMT OnTime defect tracking system. You will get an ID number for the problem and can track the status from initial reporting all the way through to the software release with the correction implemented.

  • Software enhancement requests are more than welcome. Customer enhancement request tend to bubble up to the top of our priority list because we are customer-driven. Just like a defect, these are entered into our system for evaluation and prioritization. If you've got a great idea for an enhancement or how we can improve on an existing feature or eliminate something that is annoying you, we would appreciate hearing about it.

  • Unlimited number of calls. You will never incur pay-per-incident charges or additional fees.

  • There are no data limits to the size of e-mails sent to us. If you need to attach a large data file, our e-mail system can handle it.

  • Access to our ftp site for uploading and downloading large data sets if that is the most convenient method for you to send or receive data from us.

  • Personal and professional service. We take the time to get to know you and understand your business and challenges. We never forget that we work for you; not the other way around.
