Remote Assistance Setup

    Certain scenarios may require the Technician to access machines in remote locations say, a requester from New York requires immediate assistance and the MSP's Technician is located in San Francisco. Similarly, when a request is raised via phone call, it would be great if the Technician could send an invite for remote assistance and access the requester's machine from his desk, thus increasing productivity and reducing the time taken to resolve the issue. With the Remote Assistance the Technician can access the requesters machine and resolves the request instantly with ease.
