Portbase’s Service Desk is the single point of contact for your questions concerning the services. Contact our team of trained and specialised staff for the answers to all your questions.
The Service Desk can be contacted 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Do you have any questions or would you like to submit a notification? Please contact the Service Desk. They are available during office hours, from 8:00 to 18:00, at +31 (0)88 625 25 25 or via e-mail at email@example.com. Urgent notifications outside of office hours can be passed on to the Service Desk member on standby. Our staff member on standby can only be reached by phone. The standby number is +31 (0)6 51 88 44 56. We will only read e-mails outside of office hours if this has been agreed to with the staff member on standby.
Once you have submitted your notification, our Service Desk will prioritize based on a number of criteria. The priority of your notification will indicate the time the Service Desk expects to invest in solving your notification. Please note: Please contact Patrick van den Berg, Team Manager Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the priority you have been allocated.
An example for Vessel Notification: Priority 1 will be allocated when a ship will arrive within 72 hours or if it has already arrived. Priority 2 will be allocated if a ship will arrive within a time frame of 72 hours to a week. A ship arriving after 1 week will be allocated priority 3. All general questions will also be allocated priority 3.
You will receive several reports informing you of developments regarding your notification. These reports will be sent to the e-mail address listed for the person who has submitted the notification.
Overview of the various reports
First, you will receive e-mail confirmation once your question/notification has been allocated a priority rating. This e-mail will state the priority and the resolution time for handling your question/notification.
Second, you will receive e-mail confirmation as soon as the Service Desk has taken your question/notification in hand. This means you will be kept informed of every single step within the process.
Third, you will be informed as soon as the Service Desk has a solution regarding your question/notification. This message will either be passed on by phone or by e-mail.
As soon as the question has been fully answered or the solution for your report has been implemented, you will receive an e-mail. In this e-mail we ask you to share your opinion regarding the handling. It is not mandatory to participate, but we greatly appreciate this. This e-mail also means that your report has been closed.
