Let’s kick things off by getting to know a few of the team members:

Configuring your study:

Once you’ve logged on to your account, you can start the process of configuring your study to your exact requirements. In addition to the support of the Customer Services team, , you’ll be provided with access to several support manuals  and  training videos. These videos highlight some of the most important aspects you will need to know when familiarising yourself with your CANTAB Connect Research license and setting up your study. 

These focus on:

  • Managing user accounts
  • Configuring a new study
  • Test administration and using the Rater application; and
  •  Reporting functionality

Troubleshooting issues

We aim to provide you with all the information you’ll need to conduct your study in our welcome pack, but we know that sometimes it’s important to speak directly with one of our experts to ensure that any questions you may have are answered in full.

Through our support helpdesk you will have direct access to our dedicated Customer Services team, who are on hand to assist with your queries – no matter how big or small. The Customer Services team are equipped to assist with a range of requests, from technical support to guidance on data analysis.  

Supporting us to support you:

To ensure that we provide you with the best possible service, our Customer Services team has put together some information on what they’ll need to know when you contact our helpdesk. Providing this information means that we’ll be better able to assist with your support request and resolve any queries as quickly as possible.

When you contact the helpdesk, it’s important that you provide the following information in your initial communication: 

  • Institution name / Licence number associated with your account
  • Study name
  • The email address associated with your CANTAB Connect Research account

Any information from that list that is specific to your CANTAB Connect Licence can be found from within your account.

Your feedback shapes our future

Here at Cambridge Cognition, we know that the best way to improve the quality of our service is to hear directly from our customers. So, to help us ensure that we offer the best possible service, we ask if you would be able to take two minutes to fill out a short feedback survey about your experience of working with us so far.

Your answers and information will only ever be used to improve our customer experience.
