Access a remote computer with user’s consent

Often the easiest and fastest way to provide remote desktop support is to install a remote access agent (ISL AlwayOn) on your client’s computer. This allows the subsequent support sessions to be launched anytime and from anywhere with no interaction required from your client, making the process fast and seamless.

In this post dedicated to our users, I’m happy to present Devon Air Ambulance, a team of big-hearted people who have flown over 25,000 lifesaving missions since its first mission in August 1992.

To support their office staff and 18 charity shops around Devon, vital for their fundraising activities, DAA uses ISL Online remote desktop.
