Roles and responsibilities

Here’s an introduction to the key players:

Support

Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) Account Executives (AEs)

Available 24/7 by chat, phone or email, our in-house Support team is available to guide you to trouble-shoot if something is wrong, or even if you simply can’t find the answer to a question you have. Our systems are designed to prioritise trade-critical issues, the more detail you can provide in the form of screenshots, specific times or orders affected, and anything you might have tried already to fix it, the faster we’ll be able to help you. As the industry we serve is dynamic, we sometimes experience longer wait times than we’d like and appreciate your patience in working with our team.

Your first interaction with Lightspeed will set the tone for the rest of your experience - making you feel warm, welcome, and that you’re in exactly the right place, surrounded by people who understand your needs. Before you decide on Lightspeed, one of our Account Executives will consult with you to identify your needs, problems and the opportunities Lightspeed can help with. They'll also formulate a plan for the perfect setup to get you up and running, and make the process of signing up as seamless as possible.

Account Managers (AMs)

Onboarding Specialists (OSs)

Specialist Partners

Like your business, Lightspeed is constantly growing. Your Account Manager is dedicated to keeping you in the loop as our technology evolves, so you’re kept abreast of the latest innovations that could benefit your business. And, as your needs change they’ll collaborate with you on a plan to continue to get the most out of Lightspeed.

(Optional paid service) Your Onboarding Specialist will take what seems like a daunting task standing between you and your return on investment and make it feel effortless. 

(Optional paid service) For local onsite hardware, network, support, training or consultation services some customers contract a local third party. Lightspeed does not currently provide on-site services in APAC

Billing (Finance)

Hardware Orders

Integration Partners

Questions about your invoice or payment? Email during business hours to billing@kounta.com 

We have a team dedicated to managing the fulfilment of hardware orders - if you’ve paid for hardware and it’s not going according to plan, you can contact them at hardware@kounta.com and quote your invoice number. Please note we can’t assist with tracking deliveries once they’re shipped - at this point you’ll be provided with a tracking number and who to contact about it

 

(Optional paid service) Many innovative companies from around the world have integrations to Lightspeed, and if you’re using one (or more) of these it can often be critical to the success of the overall solution. We will use reasonable efforts to answer any integration related questions, however we may need to refer you to our Partners support channel for integration specific questions related to the Partner’s platform. If in doubt about where the problem lies, email both Support teams for the best bet of a clear quick answer.

Keen to unlock levels of service you see here? Reach out to your Account Manager, they can provide you with pricing and packages to suit your support needs.
