Benefits of Remote Desktop Control

In the past, Remote Desktop Control was used primarily as a means to perform information technology (IT) troubleshooting. The current generation of Remote Desktop Control functionality has grown exponentially.

With today’s modernizations, Remote Desktop Control is an effective tool for collaborative and co-editing purposes. Check out these examples of how you can reap the benefits of Remote Desktop Control.

Connect remotely

Does your business have staff that telecommutes or teams that work in multiple physical locations? Do your clients ever need technical or other support? For any of these reasons, you can remove friction and frustration by easily connecting to computers remotely and controlling desktops from afar.

Save time by providing remote access to your workstation and give tech support the power to troubleshoot issues remotely.

Create and edit documents in real-team

Meetings can be more productive when participants have the flexibility to be hands-on. Daily, teams are challenged with putting together professional business documents. Whether a team is tasked with building a PowerPoint or reformatting a GoogleDoc, Remote Desktop Control makes creating and editing documents easy. Web meeting participants can create and edit documents in real-time, on a single file – no more version control worries!

How it works

The process is simple. While joined on a meeting, the person who wishes for their desktop to be controlled should perform the following steps:

  1. Initiate a screen share session
  2. Grant control to participant(s) joining the meeting from a supported browser or the desktop app to begin collaborating.

Participants are not required to have a plug-in to enable this capability, everything can be done right from the browser.
