Response and Escalation

NovAtel's Customer Support is comprised of highly skilled Electrical and Geomatic Engineers to ensure you receive the best customer service in the industry. We work one on one to answer your questions, work through issues, and help to optimize your NovAtel products. We accept inquiries by phone or through our web portal.

Web Portal Response

With customers worldwide, we receive requests for support services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The majority of requests come through our web portal. Requests received through the web portal will automatically generate a new case in our system, setting it in priority sequence for assignment and response. Most requests are responded to within a few hours and we strive to initially respond to all logged requests within one business day.

Live Phone Support Response

Live phone support is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST):

U.S. and Canada: 1-800-NOVATEL (1-800-668-2835)

International: +1-403-295-4900

This service may be impacted if significant backlog exists in our case management system due to worldwide customer demands. In this case, your call will be recorded by our voicemail system. Similar to web portal requests, voicemail messages are captured in our case management system and put into priority sequence.

Whether you prefer to use phone or web portal, the next available agent will always handle your request in priority sequence.

Please Note: If you have an urgent business critical issue that requires a priority response and you cannot get an immediate response through our live phone system, please log your issue through our customer web portal and follow the review process outlined at the bottom of this page under the heading: Business Critical Requests for Priority Response.

Business Critical Requests for Priority Response

When a quick response is business critical and waiting for the next available engineer is not optional, your request can be evaluated for priority response by following these 3 easy steps:

1) Submit a Request using our Web Portal service at

2) Record the case number that is provided to you after submitting your request.

3) Send a separate email to with details explaining the urgency and include the case number.

A Hexagon | NovAtel® Support team member will evaluate your priority request and either contact you directly or provide an email response with an estimated initial response time. Please note that only requests that are truly business-critical will receive a priority response.
