Pricing/Ordering About/Contact Download Technical Support Version 9.0
Technical Support
Extensive Rumpus documentation is included in the downloadable installation package. Look for it in the "Helpful Info" folder in the disk image (Mac) or at "C:/Rumpus/Helpful Info" (PC). The same documentation articles for the latest version of Rumpus are also available here. If your question isn't answered in the documentation or by Internet search, please contact our support team.
Support Policy

Maxum offers free technical support on our products for 1 full year after your license purchase. In fact, we realize that when you are first working with Rumpus is when you are most likely to have questions, so even during an evaluation period, prior to purchase, we will happily answer your technical support questions.

As a small company, we can't guarantee that there will always be someone available to take your phone call, so we don't offer telephone support. Instead, we provide premium e-mail and Web-based support. When using this system, you will receive prompt replies from a knowledgeable person, often in less time than you would wait on hold when calling the call center farm of some big software companies.

To ensure we have the information we need to help you, please complete the contact form to send questions. Technical support questions will normally be answered via e-mail, so be certain to enter your return e-mail address carefully. If your mail account is filtered, be sure you can accept mail from "support@maxum.com" so that our response will be delivered promptly.
