Impinj Support Welcome Guide

INTRODUCTION

Thank you for using Impinj products. Impinj recognizes that support is crucial to the success of our customers and we are dedicated to helping them succeed and get the most value out of their Impinj products. This guide provides useful information about our support resources and instructions for requesting help.

GETTING HELP

Self-Help Resources

Impinj customers can find technical documentation and downloads on our Support Portal. Resources include sample code, troubleshooting guides, educational videos, and support articles about various other topics. To access content, please visit https://www.impinj.com/support. Most self-help content is available without logging in.

Requesting Support

Impinj Customer Support Engineers (CSEs) are available between 4:00am – 5:00pm Pacific Time.

  • Customers can submit a support request for products under warranty via these two methods:
  • Either method will generate a numbered ticket in our Support database.
  • Requests submitted in this manner will ensure the appropriate Impinj Customer Support Engineer responds in a timely manner.

We currently do not offer a Customer Support phone number to call for assistance, however once a ticket has been established, the CSE is able to coordinate a phone call through the ticket. Customers can expect an initial response within 2 business days after creating a support case. The time to full resolution of a case depends on the level of technical complexity.

Note: For certain customer requests, we may ask the customer to contact their Impinj Authorized Partner first. We rely on our partner network to be the first line of support for their customers since they are in the best position to help answer questions and troubleshoot their solutions which include Impinj products. If the Impinj Authorized Partner needs help to resolve their end-customer requests, they should contact Impinj Support for assistance.

PRODUCT RETURNS (RMA)

Impinj utilizes the support process to handle all requests for product returns. Once a customer has created a new support case, a CSE will work with the customer to jointly troubleshoot the issue for products under warranty.

Initial Limited Hardware Warranty and Extended Warranty

If the product is determined to be faulty, the CSE will authorize the customer to ship it back to Impinj. Once we receive and verify that the product is defective, we will either send the customer a new replacement product, credit the customer’s account, or ship the product back to the customer after it is repaired. We currently do not offer a repair service for products whose warranty has expired. The standard RMA process generally takes 2-4 weeks to complete.

END OF SUPPORT/END OF LIFE

As products reach their End of Life (no longer for sale) and End of Support (no longer supported by Impinj), notices will be posted in the “Customer Notifications” section of each product family on the Support Portal. For more details, please visit the appropriate link below:
