Remote Support Features

Remote Support empowers the sales or support representative to escalate the session by remotely viewing the user's computer. With screen sharing broadcast any visuals, applications, Web pages, documents, or software to remote users in real-time. Audience members will be able to see exactly what an agent is doing including all of his/her mouse movements and keyboard inputs.

To protect against unwanted intervention, Inter-Tel Remote Support prompts customers before initiating any remote control or monitoring sessions. Once remote control has been granted, support and sales professionals can view a customers PC as if they were sitting right in front of it. No time is wasted by the customer describing a problem, or by the representative trying to visualize the problem. Ultimate control is left in the hands of the user, actively participating in the screen-sharing process and observes every step that is taken to resolve the technical issue. At anytime the user can retake control of the mouse and keyboard or end the session altogether.
