Benefits of Remote Support Tools

Today's best remote administration software includes tools that simplify the process of connecting to and managing computers and servers. These tools are usually referred to as remote administration tools or remote control tools. IT professionals rely on these tools to remotely manage servers and computers. These tools make it possible to control a server or computer as if you are sitting right in front of it, even if you are hundreds of miles away. In this way, these tools simplify IT professionals' lives and allow them to be much more productive.

Many IT professionals use remote control tools to provide support to end-users. By doing so, they are able to essentially replicate end-users' computer desktops at their locations. They can see what end-users see, which makes it a lot easier to provide effective support. In many cases, it's not necessary at all for an IT professional to speak to an end-user about a problem. These programs also allow sys admins to connect to and manage servers in data centers, which largely eliminates the need to be there in person.

Remote administration tools help control remote machines.


Handle Tasks without Full Remote Sessions


As with many types of remote support software, the only way to perform even basic, routine tasks remotely or to access remote control tools at all is by establishing a full remote session. If this only needs to be done once or twice a day, it's not a huge deal. However, most IT professionals need to do this several times a day. In that case, having to initiate new remote sessions again and again can waste quite a bit of time.

Today's best remote control software largely eliminates the need to establish full-fledged remote connections. By avoiding the need for full remote sessions, IT professionals can accomplish a lot more in the course of a day. Many basic tasks can be performed without establishing full remote sessions, such as viewing event logs, managing disks, restarting processes and services, and monitoring system performance. In addition to saving IT professionals’ time, this feature helps to prevent disruptions to end-users. When full remote sessions are needed, end-users often have to stop whatever they are doing, which can negatively affect their productivity as well.

Remotely Access Computers Regardless of Their State

End-users aren't always present when problems arise or when various tasks need to be performed. As a result, their computers are often in sleep mode or powered off entirely. Even if end-users leave their computers running, they can crash. The best remote administration tools allow IT professionals to access computers regardless of the state they are in. If a computer is crashed, powered off or in sleep mode, an IT professional can still connect to it remotely to do whatever needs to be done.

This feature is made possible through remote administration software that takes advantage of the Intel® vPro™ chipset and Active Management Technology (AMT). Many remote administration programs don't offer this feature at all, which hinders IT professionals' ability to access computers and servers in order to perform various tasks. When you think about it, it is crucial for sys admins and other professionals to be able to access computers whether they are powered on or not. Many maintenance tasks are performed when end-users aren't around, and computers often crash at inconvenient times outside of standard business hours.
