Our Name

The name Speciffix :

  • Is a play on "specifics" implying attention to detail  .. explicit  ... lets get down to specifics.
  • Is a concatenation of "specify" and "fix" meaning that we analyse and design as well as implement and support

Software Implementation

Our implementation methods are described on a separate Software Implememtation page of this site.

Support

Speciffix operates a help-desk facility through which our customers can log support requests (tickets) at any time via our customer internet portal or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Note: You must be registered on our system first). We also operate a phone support line on +64 9 889 3444 (Auckland, NZ). We also have some regional phone numbers which internally redirect to this line (toll free).

In almost all cases, the support call will be assigned to the consultant who implemented the customer’s site since he/she will have the best understanding of your operating environment and setup and is therefore the person best placed to respond to your query. For more urgent support requirements, the consultant can be called directly.
