BAI HELPDESK On the technician side we see all calls that are coming in. As soon as you submit your call the call is automatically assigned to a technician and an is sent to both you and your technician. Each time the call is modified you will also receive an letting you know this. Once the technician feels the call is resolved he/she will close the call and an will be sent to you. Once a call has been closed it can not be re-opened. A new call would have to be submitted. Please always submit a separate call for each incident. Remember that technicians are constantly checking the HelpDesk, all phone messages and s sent in without a tracking number will be moved to the bottom of the list.
BAI HELPDESK If your locality would like the ability to see all calls for your locality the HelpDesk can be customized for this. If you wish to have this customization please send David Bright an at This is a one time charge of With this customization you will be given a separate user id and password that would have the ability to view and modify any call from your locality. Localities with an IT staff may find this very useful for keeping up with calls that they may not be aware. It may also help from having two people ask the same question.
BAI HELPDESK Here is a screenshot of the helpdesk using the customized user. This user also has the ability to close calls.
BAI HELPDESK Using the Help Desk is a benefit to you and to us. You are now able to track the status of your call. You always know who is working on your call. You can go back and look at all your old calls, this is helpful when you run into the same problem again in the future. We are constantly adding questions to FAQ that come from users just like you. Once you have submitted your call and have obtained a reference number you will be contacted by your technical support person either through the HelpDesk or by Telephone. If you need to call BAI please make sure you have a valid Reference number in hand. Don’t forget about BAI forums
BAI HELPDESK How BAI handles your Calls. All calls are handled in the order that they are received. Only calls that BAI feels is an emergency will be placed at the top of list. The following are emergencies. AS/400 is Down There is a problem with Payroll There may be others but only BAI can make the decision on whether it is a valid Emergency. Once the call comes in the BAI technical support person will look at FAQ first to locate an answer to your question or problem. If the tech support person feels that he/she needs to speak with in person they will call you. All calls (with the exception of program quotes or program work already is progress) must go through tech support before being given to the programming department.
BAI HELPDESK Reminders: For fastest results always check the FAQ first. If your answer is not in the FAQ then key your call in the HelpDesk. Calls that come in without a reference number are placed at the bottom of the list. Always key your responses in the HelpDesk and not the that is sent to you. If you are having a problem using the HelpDesk let your tech support contact know ASAP and he/she will get with you as soon as they can and walk you through doing a call. Our plans with FAQ is to eventually have any possible problems or questions answered here. BAI always has classes going on at their location. (fill out the survey on the homepage and the training could be free). With the HelpDesk you can look up calls that have been closed and find out what was done the last time that this problem arose.
