What to expect from our Emergency Support service

We pride ourselves on our ability to keep you up-and-running whatever happens. Our UK based team of ShopMate experts are available to help you with any issue you may have with one of our products. They’re also ready to guide you through any usage queries you may have.

Outside 9:00 – 5:00 Mon-Fri hours, our emergency team can be overwhelmed if people telephone in about non-emergency issues (as set out below.) This means that if a retailer who does have an emergency tries to get help, they may be delayed in getting help because the emergency team is already fully occupied. So could we encourage you to think: “Could this wait until the morning?” before you pick up the phone during the emergency hours period?
