Aviso Support to Watermark Support Transition


We're excited to take the next step and move Aviso Retention's Support Ticketing and Support Knowledge Base to the Watermark Help Center and support systems!

The screens may look a bit different, but everything from the client perspective is staying the same or being improved upon!

Here are some examples of the updates:

  • The color scheme is changing from Aviso blue to Watermark purple
  • The Aviso Retention support site URL is being updated to Watermark Insights
  • The SS&E Knowledge Base support article formatting will follow the Watermark Help Center style (font, colors, etc.)
  • The SS&E Knowledge Base content has moved to the Watermark Help Center SS&E Knowledge Base section
