We make sure that we improve our support continuously, thereby making our customers happy and working more efficiently.

It is time to see some stats of the BizTalk360 support for 2021.
The main channels for the query through
Also, we schedule support calls with our customers to investigate the issue which helps in better understanding their infrastructure and the scenario to resolve the issues quickly to save the day of the customer.
One of the important aspects in support is the customer feedback and rating on the resolution given by the support engineer. When a ticket is closed, there is a customer survey added to the ticket to get the customer feedback and rating with a questionnaire.
Customers can rate the support by three categories as Awesome, Neutral, and Disappointed. Most of the response, we received were awesome and very few are other ratings.
Here are some of the feedbacks which we had received.
Along with the resolving of the support tickets, we are also involved in the Customer Relationship calls, Best Practice Installation and Configuration sessions, Quarterly Health Check sessions and even some of the demos to the customers.
The main objective of QHC calls is to make the customers understand and utilise the complete set of features which they have procured in the license and use the BizTalk360 tool to its full potential. In the call, a quick overview the new features released in the latest version will be given along with few suggestions and best practices to improve the monitoring efficiency.
In addition to customers that, customers will be updated on the new versions of BizTalk360, license details, and finally, resolve the issues if any by providing immediate resolution or request them to raise a support ticket.
During these calls, some of our customers would request assistance to perform the upgrade of their production environment to avoid failures and downtime. Before proceeding with the upgrade, it is recommended to have a backup of the BizTalk360 database and the credentials of the service account to have a smooth upgrade.
BP (Best Practice) sessions are scheduled for the new customers to kickstart the BizTalk360 configuration monitoring to start working with the tool and in addition to that overview of the core features like monitoring BizTalk artifacts status and Analytics is provided. Recommendations based on their requirements and pain points like disabling the receive location when a particular host is facing some issue would also be provided.
One of the important milestones of BizTalk360 is the major version V10 released after 15 months of challenging hard work done to completely revamp the BizTalk360 UI (User Interface). The feedback received for v10 has been incorporated in the successive releases.
In the major version, the UI was completely revamped providing a new look and feel and the user experience and performance were also improved by moving to Angular.
In addition to revamp of the UI, new features, bugs, and the enhancements were also added.

Most of the customers have provided positive feedback on BizTalk360 V10.
One of the initiatives taken during this release was getting customer feedback through usability testing which would help us in enhancing the application. Before releasing the major version, we have shared the usability build with customers who were interested to evaluate the version for usability testing. Usability calls were also scheduled with our customers and internal development team to get the user-level experience of the new UI to understand the experience and suggestions of the customer.
We had shared the usability build with the customer who all have different infrastructure and utilizing most of the features with a greater number of artifacts, and the BizTalk servers to their potential
We take this chance to thank our customers who have tested the usability build and shared valuable feedback to improve the BizTalk360 user experience.
