How to submit a hardware maintenance or technical support request
Where an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet solution requires maintenance due to a system fault or other operational issue, and is not available for use for sign in/sign out, please follow the instructions detailed below.
Step 1: Raise a service request or contact RIW Service Desk (urgent/out of hours)
Go to https://www.riw.net.au/contact-us/request-a-service?hardwaretechnicalsupport and raise a service request under the category RIW Hardware Technical Support Request.
If the matter is more urgent and/or out of hours, you can contact the RIW Service Desk direct on 1300 101 682. An urgent request would be considered a Priority 1 or 2 issue, as detailed in the Priority Definitions of Support at the end of this article.
Step 2: Fill in the service request
The following information needs to be completed in the service request. If you are calling the RIW Service Desk for an urgent request, having this information ready will assist in prioritisation an triage.

Step 3: Triage and response
