Remote Technical Support/Helpdesk Solution

I’m InTouch Server Edition (SE) uses screen sharing technology to present any PC and all business applications running on it to you. The solution provides un-attended access to any PC or server that has the enabling software pre-installed on it and that is turned on and registered with the I’m InTouch Server Edition gateway server. PC’s registered to the system can be operating on the internal LAN or can be those on the public internet - at branch offices, employees homes or customers premises located anywhere in the world.


  • Secure - The I’m InTouch Server gateway securely deploys behind your firewall or within your DMZ and utilizes standard Internet ports 80 & 443 for all host to server communications, eliminating the need for port forwarding to reach hosts on the internal network.

  • Highly scalable. The I’m InTouch SE server gateway brokers communication between the technical support person and the host desktop PC and provides all the required administrative functionality. Most processing is done at the host desktop. This unique “Distributed Processing” server architecture means that a single server can handle from 500 to 2,000 host PCs, depending on the specific server hardware configuration.
  • Easy Deployment – install the I’m InTouch SE server within your business premise, and add user accounts. By entering your employee or customer’s email address within their account profile, the system will automatically invite users to set up their computer for remote access. They simply download and run the I’m InTouch enabling software onto their PC and within minutes can begin to use the system.
