Understanding the Pluto LMS Support Scope

We love our clients and place high priority on providing the best possible customer support. 

Channels of Support

There are multiple channels of support and, as such, an important part of providing our clients with responsive and comprehensive support is ensuring that they understand in which scenarios each support channel is most appropriate and effective. 

1) Email support

  1. Complex or technical issues that require your to provide detailed information (e.g. screenshot, explanations, etc.) to our support team. 
  2. Non-urgent inquiries such as general questions or requests for information. 
  3. Email support can be beneficial for customers who have difficulty communicating in the support center's primary language (English) as they can take the time to translate their questions or concerns.
