At Qualys, we constantly strive to improve our customer support experience. Over the next few months, you will see a variety of additions to our customer support platform to help enhance your experience of connecting with Qualys. As one such initiative, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new Qualys Call Centre Platform.

What’s Changing

Effective Dec 13, 2021, when contacting Qualys, you will be diverted to the new Contact Centre system. The new Contact Centre system introduces an advanced calling experience that provides flexibility and consistency to our customers.

The new Contact Centre system offers an advanced call flow that spans the entire range of Qualys products. To land your call in the correct queue in the shortest duration, when you call Qualys Support, choose the related product family and product based on your question or request. This connects you to the Technical Support Engineers specialized in the product you select. Here’s a table that you can use as a quick reference for products and their families:

Qualys is committed to a smooth and bug-free customer experience. We thoroughly test new features and capabilities before opening it up to our customers. As a part of the testing effort for the new Contact Center System, we have run into a couple of unanticipated technical errors. We have been forced to adjust the Go-Live date for this platform by a week. The extended timeline allows us to fix these technical errors and do a complete round of testing to ensure you have an enhanced Support experience when this is released.

Our new estimated Go-Live date for the Contact Center System is 20th December 2021. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we table this unforeseen issue.
