How Do I Contact Support?

Perfecto offers support services via web portal, customer portal, chat, and telephone. We recommend using either the web portal or the customer portal since those provide us with the most background information that we will use to quickly handle your case.

Web Portal

The web portal is the main channel to use when opening support tickets, as seen in the this video. Select the type of help you need or problem you are having, fill out the relevant information in the provided fields, and submit your case. You will immediately receive an email letting you know your request has reached our systems. You will hear back from Perfecto Tech Support as soon as they have reviewed your case. In most cases you will hear back from someone in thirty minutes or less.

A link to it can also be found in the top-right corner of the support portal:

How Can I Escalate My Case?

If you are concerned about how your case is being handled or need to expedite a critical issue, you are encouraged to use the Escalation Channel (monitored 24x7x365).

Once the escalation is received, one of our Perfecto Support Managers will call the phone number you provided (Within 2 hours, usually well within one hour) to understand the reason for the escalation and the impact it is having on your team. Following the phone conversation, the Perfecto Support Manager will put together a plan of action to address the escalation as well as send periodic updates until the resolution is confirmed.

How to escalate

To use the Escalation Channel, please follow the guidelines below:


  1. Please make sure to have an existing support case number.
  2. Avoid mentioning a case reference numbers (such as: [ref:_00D201UUG._500D01l3MbJ: ref] ) within the email subject & body. That will confuse our case handling software.
  3. Email [email protected] (Monitored 24 x 7), please refrain from adding additional contacts to the email.
  4. Use the following bullets as a template for your email:
  • Email Subject: Escalated Case #

How Do I Obtain My Software?

Perfecto is a SaaS base service. Your software will run in Perfecto’s cloud.

How Do I Obtain My Licenses?

Perfecto software does not require a software license. When you sign up for a Perfecto private cloud, an implementation manager will be in touch with you to organize setting up your cloud and provide you with credentials for accessing your private cloud. If your account is current, then you will have access to all your devices.

What Releases of the Software Are Supported?

Since Perfecto software is cloud based the latest software release will always be running on your cloud. Perfecto will always keep that software at the latest version.

When Are My Maintenance Windows?

Perfecto will periodically publish new releases as well as carry out upgrades and maintenance of the system infrastructure to roll out new features and improve stability and security. You can subscribe to notifications about planned upgrades on the Perfecto status page.


Perfecto Subscribe to Updates


Planned maintenance notifications outside of standard upgrades will be emailed to you within five business days of the start date.

Perfecto may occasionally need to perform emergency maintenance. Perfecto Support will exercise reasonable effort to notify you twelve hours in advance by email. However, such notice is not guaranteed.

Perfecto may occasionally be required to install relevant security patches in accordance with our patch management policy, as part of either planned or emergency maintenance activity. You will be notified in accordance with the maintenance type, as stated above.

You can also see when your cloud is scheduled for upgrades and maintenance on the Perfecto Status Page.

How Do I Get Help Beyond Perfecto Support?

Sometimes your problem will be traced to issues with software that is not under the control of Perfecto (e.g., open-source software and networking.) OpenLogic is a Perforce company that provides support for open-source software. Contact your CSM or Sales to see if OpenLogic can help you with non-Perfecto problems.
