Your Support Website: Manage Cases and RMAs On the Go

Now the Cisco Technical Support mobile application makes it easier for you to manage both support cases and RMAs from your iPhone, iPAD, or similar device.

You can still view all your open cases, see case updates and details, add notes or photos to a case, click to contact your assigned engineer, request case closure and more.

You'll also find increased mobile support for your RMAs, enabling you to:

  • See replacement parts organized by Delivery and Carrier Tracking numbers
  • Get quick access to tracking information from UPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT, and Keuhne-Nagel
  • "Click-to-call" or "Click-to-email" your assigned on-site contact and field engineer
  • View expanded labor detail information to stay up with your scheduled appointments

Wherever you are, these features can reduce the time you spend managing cases and getting equipment or parts replaced. This app is also your enhanced mobile path to community discussions, support videos and preferred feeds.

Stay on top of your open support cases and RMAs by downloading the latest iOS Cisco Technical Support mobile application now.
