As business use of iPads, iPhones and Android devices increases, more customers and employees are asking for help with their mobile devices … and their mobile apps. However, having an end-user narrate a problem over the phone is often a cumbersome process, especially if the problem involves the phone itself!
Remote control is not available on iOS (i.e., iPhone, iPad) and some Android platforms. But with BeyondTrust’s Embedded Remote App Support, customers and employees can request remote support directly from an Android or iOS app, eliminating phone support and other less efficient troubleshooting methods.
Embedded Remote App Support is a software development kit (SDK) that can be included in Apple iOS or Android apps.
Once enabled, customers and employees can request remote support directly from an Android or iOS app.
Support reps can see and troubleshoot the app in real time.
