What is Remote Support?
The Remote Support tool is there for computer problems that don't require a PC Engineer to be physically present. PC problems such as a non functioning program, driver issues, program tutorials and viruses can be solved remotely by a computer engineer. This doesn't only save you time, but also money. A remote fix can be cheaper and much less time consuming then calling a computer engineer or dropping your computer off to be fixed.
During a Remote Support session, there is a constant connection between the engineers computer and the clients computer/laptop. This connection is a 100% safe and will not affect your systems security or personal files.
Remote Support allows us to show the user how to fix computer/laptop problems, so they feel empowered and have the future knowledge to deal with similar IT issues.
How do I connect to a Remote Support session?
To start a Remote Support session click the following http://remote.tontin.co.uk:8008/welcome. On the page choose the option that suits you in most cases this will be the 'Open Customer Page' if one of the other options are needed you will be instructed by a technician
Once you have clicked on your selection you will be taken to a download page , please click on the download button, when prompted say yes to running the download, if your security asks if you wish to allow the program please say yes. The program will now begin to install, Click "accept" and enter your name, or optional your company name. Now you have entered the Tontin Remote Support waiting area where a computer engineer will contact you shortly.
What happens during a Remote Support session?
Once the connection between the engineer and your home computer/laptop is established, you will see this window appear on your computer
When you see this window, it means that an engineer now has access to your computer. Please note that a client can close this connection at any time by clicking "End Session". You can also communicate with the engineer by clicking on the "Technicians Chat" button. Once you click the button, the following window will open.
As soon as the connection is established, the engineer can start to fix the problems with your computer. Any questions you may have can be asked through the technicians chat. Also the technician will notify you in chat if he or she requires your assistance.
Which computer problems can't be solved with Remote Support?
Although remote support can be used to deal with a large amount of IT problems, there are certain problems that can't be solved by an engineer through remote support. A client can't use the remote support on the following problems:
- No Internet connection
- A failing Internet connection due to a Internet destroying virus
- Hardware problems such as a malfunctioning graphics card, motherboard, etc. Although these problems can be diagnosed over remote support, they can't be fixed over remote support.
After the remote support session?
Once the fixes have been implemented on your computer during the remote support session, the engineer will turn off the connection. Tontin ensures you that no software will be left behind and your computer will be left secure, safe and in it's original state. The only changes on your computer will be the fixes that have been implemented by the engineer.
In some cases the client may request a persistent connection. The persistent connection is a saved connection between the clients computer and Tontin. This connection is a 100% secure and can only be used on request of the client. A persistent connection is often used for business support or clients that need a quick computer fix. A persistent connection does not have to be initiated by the client, but can be started by the engineer on the clients request.
