Why Submit a Support Ticket?

Here at Symless we know that supporting our customers is of paramount importance. We’ve built a complex bit of software that aims to achieve a simple goal: making multi-device, cross platform working seamless for everyone. We also know that it doesn’t always go the way we think it will, and despite our best testing efforts we could never hope to replicate all the varied and wonderful use cases that our customers have. So, we rely on feedback from our users to help us spot the bugs, replicate problems, and ultimately make a better product.
