Help Desk services for SPSS products have been managed directly by the team of SPS (formerly SPSS) specialising in statistical data analysis for over 20 years.

In addition to technical support, the team provides:

The technical assistance service, included in the contract SPS Service Program, activates the following services:

  • Update service for minor and major releases and bug fixes released by the parent company (IBM)

  • SPS Add-On Update Service

  • Re-licensing service, i.e. moving licenses from one user to another and/or from one machine to another (without any change in the number of modules and licenses)

  • Rapid intervention in the face of anomalies, to analyse the problem and resolve bugs in the installed environment (diagnostic support).

Licensing and its maintenance refer to the number of clients (and related modules) installed, without any link to the user of the software itself (respecting the number of licenses, but also the type, i.e. Authorized User rather than Concurrent User).

If you have a technical problem and would like to contact our support team, please write an email to:

Entering the following information:

  • Operating system

  • Authorization code

  • Screenshot of the error that appears when activating and/or opening SPSS

For the re-licensing service, i.e. to move the license to a new PC, please write an email to

Entering the following information:

and asking for the license restoration

In the event of technical problems, it is important to send an email to to open a ticket in the ticketing tool, which sorts the customer's support requests, distributes them to the SPS team and ensures that the problems are examined within the correct timeframe. The system also automatically sends an email to the customer when the ticket is assigned, with the response time for the ticket created.

SPS provides the Help Desk service to the customer only on the latest and penultimate version of the solution.


The Application Maintenance service is intended as a set of system monitoring and user support activities necessary to keep the system up-to-date and fully functional, also providing users with support when anomalous behaviour of the instrument is detected (or presumed).

In addition to Help Desk services, this service includes:

  • direct contact with the Data Science team not only by e-mail, but also by telephone

  • “How do I do" user support

  • supporting documentation

  • activation of a dedicated ticketing tool
