New Windows, IOS and Android App Now Available.

NEW APPS FOR WINDOWS, IOS AND ANDROID NOW AVAILABLE.

Overview

Introduction

We recently launched our brand-new support application for Windows 10 users and devices.

We are excited to finally launch the brand-new Hixon – Help Centre experience. We’ve taken the best of our in-house technology and mixed it with the power of a progressive web app. This means updates now become as seamless as visiting a normal website and we’re committed to delivering updates to you every week.


Progressive Web Apps

What is a Progressive Web App (PWA)?

A progressive web application is a type of application software delivered through the web, built using common web technologies including HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It is intended to work on any platform that uses a standards-compliant browser, including both desktop and mobile devices.

A progressive web app can be installed safely by the user outside of an Appstore (Google Play, iOS App Store, Microsoft Store) and allows developers to quickly update the contents without resubmission each time. The result is a seamless app upgrade without annoying updates to run and download.


In addition to the redesign, we have also added hundreds of useful product guides to ensure you get the most from the products and services we provide. Our team of technology specialists will keep adding more articles on a weekly basis to ensure content stays fresh and up to date.
New Help Centre App Launched


What’s New!

Our brand-new desktop & mobile application has been completely redesigned allowing you to quickly alert us to any problems that have not already been identified and prevented by our proactive monitoring software.

In addition to the redesign, we have also added hundreds of useful product guides to ensure you get the most from the products and services we provide. Our team of technology specialists will keep adding more articles on a weekly basis to ensure content stays fresh and up to date.

We understand how important technology is to you and your business, we also understand how frustrating it can be when something doesn’t work as expected, so we have added a real time system status page that is updated as soon as we are aware of issues that may be impacting users from more than one organisation.

Finally, we know how important it is to be able to quickly report a problem and the new app does just that! All it takes is one click, and a description of your issue and a support ticket will be created for you.

Other Features Include:

  • Submit a support ticket
  • View live system status updates
  • Browse hundreds of product guides
  • Access simple diagnostic tools
  • View the latest news & announcements
  • Get answers to frequently asked questions
  • Learn more about the products & services we provide
