I have never once been made to feel any request for help and support, large or small is a problem. Heritage support service and hosting is brilliant and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

At IS Oxford we have always believed in building partnerships with our users and our part in that arrangement is to provide the highest quality support service possible. Our users know that the team is just a phone call away if problems occur, but support isn’t just about software errors. We consider that our support service should be proactive, as well as reactive. Our Support Website offers wealth of resources such as helpsheets and video tutorials. Our weekly hints and tips ensures that our users are always learning more about the tools they have invested in. We also run free Webinars throughout the year on a variety of topics, sharing our knowledge and experience of how to get the very best our ot Heritage Cirqa.
