Accessing the Bromcom support desk
Those who have purchased support from Bromcom (rather than a third party MIS team) should have been registered for our helpdesk and the support portal on or shortly after your go-live date. Registered contacts can add extra staff to support by using the Add Contact form.
Support is very busy in September. Please read our comprehensive guide to the Bromcom support desk and how you can get the best from the service, including how to find out about known issues, use online chat, and use our service status page.
Helpful guidance for new schools

Remember that you can also register for shared webinar trainings, and watch webinar recordings (which are all timestamped), on the book training page.
Free bite-size training for your first week back

Support for Census
Book your Bromcom Census Training as soon as possible, click the link below to visit our dedicated Census page where you can download our Census manual and register for our free, live training on how to run the Census:
Remember that new customers who have purchased support from Bromcom are also entitled to free transition calls from a customer success manager. These calls can be used to look at the Census with your CSM, to help ease the pressure on your school. Please enquire with your customer success manager about getting one of these calls booked in.

The BromCommunity is thriving and a great place to get support and share best practice with peers. Anyone registered with support will have received an invitation to join the community already, but if you are struggling with access please email email@example.com.
