Hopefully, we can all agree that JMP software offers tons of analytical and graphical platforms that help solve problems every day. Did you know that along with the software itself, technical support services are also available? Technical support is available to all annually licensed customers of JMP products, including JMP, JMP Pro, JMP Clinical, JMP Genomics and the JMP Graph Builder for iPad app. Support is also available for one year to our single-user, shrink-wrap users.

Check the Knowledge Base
Along with tech support interactions with individuals, we also maintain a Knowledge Base of JMP Notes & FAQs to address common questions and/or problems associated with the software. The notes offer pointers and best practices for installing and using JMP. You will find descriptions of common user errors, undocumented features, circumventions and fixes for problems in these notes. Also, our FAQs contain helpful hints to consider as you navigate through the many JMP platforms.
Software help – yes! Statistical consulting – no, sorry!
Find details on what JMP tech support provides in Technical Support Services. This reference defines our support services and gives a summary of our support levels. In general, if you have a specific model or methodology in mind, JMP technical support can identify for you if our software will do what you want and guide you on how it can be done.
We cannot, however, provide statistical consulting such as giving specific advice on how to carry out an analysis based on a description of the data. If you want someone to work with you and recommend a course of action, JMP does have mentoring services available for a fee. These mentors have the time to look very closely at your analytical needs and suggest one or more courses of action.
How to contact technical support
There are several ways to reach JMP tech support. You can contact us by phone, email, via a web submission – and from within the software itself. When calling, you will always be connected to a real person – no automated phone trees in our technical support! All of the details are found on our Support page. Technical support resources are all around the world, so we can assist you in your local time zone.
