We are excited to share with you a new era for education and help: ONE-KEY™ Support

We believe that one of the most important things that an equipment management platform can do is to be easy to use. When thinking about how to coach app users up on using the system, we also try to be respectful to the fact that we release about 13 updates to the app every year. With the understanding that in the world of software development, education is a bit of a moving target, we want to provide you with ongoing support to help you understand what our platform has to offer, and how to use it best.  

November 26, 2019 One-Key Team

A Strong Foundation for Customer Support: We’ve taken a multi-pronged approach to providing you support, both guided by our support team and in the form of self-service support for your convenience: 

  • All-new support site: Find support articles on common topics related to our app. Start a conversation with our support team with the use of our site’s interactive chat feature. 
  • Support YouTube: Watch and learn about our app at your pace.   
  • One-Key Facebook Group: Join an online community of fellow One-Key users. Share success stories, pose questions to fellow equipment managers, and engage with the One-Key team right from Facebook. 

Without further ado, let’s take you through the major features of One-Key support.   

One-Key Knowledge Base 

We have launched a new One-Key knowledge base, accessible here:

We know it can be a pain when something doesn’t go right with the app and you don’t know where to look to figure out how to solve the problem.  

One-Key support is your one-stop-shop for everything related on how to use the One-Key app. Whether you need help setting up tool tracking, are interested in learning about the inventory management features you didn’t know existed, or want to explore new topics, we encourage you to stop by. 

The search bar at the top of the site helps you find subjects by keyword. For your convenience, this search bar is located at the top of each page of the support site.
