BSI Technicians can assist you with any hardware or software purchased directly from BSI; however there may be instances where we will refer you to a third-party for support (for example, Dell provides an on-site Warranty with telephone pre-diagnosis; Natural Software supports Natural Grid, Log and Music directly).
At busy times support technicians may be with other customers. In the rare case that you don't get straight through to a technician, listen carefully to the recorded message to arrange a prompt call back.
