9. Burnside Requests


Within this quick guide, you will learn how to:

Contacting Burnside Support

Support for Burnside Mobile is available via the Burnside Requests web application or by telephone, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. EST through 4:30 p.m. EST. Requests will be initiated by the identified Customer support administrator.

Ideally the Customer support administrator will have a good understanding of Burnside Mobile and will be available to Customer staff to discuss any issue before escalating it to a Burnside Requests support ticket.

Issues such as the inability to login, missing map layers, or problems saving data are likely to be server related and best addressed by Customer IT server support staff. Issues such as improper sorting in a report, a reoccurring patrol review problem, functionality improvement or suggestions, or issues that cannot be resolved by the Customer administrator should be addressed by the Burnside support team.

Creating a ticket is the preferred way to log a non-critical issue; it is fast, easy, and will put the issue into a queue that is monitored by Burnside support staff. The Customer support administrator is encouraged to call Burnside support for critical issues that cannot be resolved locally.
