SAS Customer Support principally provides a telephone help-line to customers who are licensed to use our SAS Software. The team is there for the times when you encounter a difficulty while using SAS Software or when you simply aren't sure how to achieve something. The principal aim of Customer Support is to resolve problems so that you deliver your projects and solutions on time, and the key to achieving this is to use the support processes intelligently - after all, not every problem is "Severity 1".
Severity levels are applied to calls and they help to ensure that support issues are prioritised and the most pressing issues dealt with first.
However, as always there are a wide range of issues that occur ranging from "I need this fixed now" to "I wonder how I could....?" . The Customer Support team is there to ensure answers to all of these issues in the most professional way possible.
The SAS Customer Support team are also involved in a number of other activities including attending customer sites to provide technical support, often working in partnership with SAS Consulting. Customer Support also teach a wide range of SAS standard and customised courses, in partnership with the SAS Education department.
You can contact us through the Lo-call number in Ireland 1850-923 323.
