In industries ranging from financial services to telecom, remote support services are transforming the way customer service is delivered. A remote support tool can help improve support agent efficiency, enhance the user experience, and reduce the overall cost of service delivery.
Indispensable to tech support providers and enterprise IT helpdesks working with remote and mobile workforces, remote support services allow technicians to access a user’s computer or mobile device remotely in order to provide personalized hands-on assistance and, if necessary, mobile device management. And with the introduction of interactive video in best-of-breed remote support tools, providers in all service disciplines—including manufacturing, education, and healthcare—are discovering the power of remote support services to eliminate the need for on-site work and boost productivity.
How Remote Support Services Are Transforming Service Delivery in a Range of Fields
In IT departments and tech support organizations, remote support services have been used to achieve faster resolution times and improved first-call resolution rates when supporting remote employees or other types of users. With the availability of more advanced capabilities like mobile device support and live video streaming, other service disciplines are now adopting remote support services to save on travel costs and work more efficiently.
With the use of sophisticated remote support services, field service technicians for example, are able to investigate and often completely resolve equipment issues without having to physically visit a site. And managed service providers are able to quickly and easily access a client’s systems for periodic performance monitoring, maintenance, and troubleshooting—all without having to dispatch a field agent or interrupt the client’s regular business.
