Sometimes with technology things don’t exactly go according to plan. At times you might need your IT specialist to troubleshoot an urgent issue you are having, but what if he/she can’t come onsite? How can they access your computer from a separate location and fix the problem? Or what happens if you go on vacation and you notice something is not quite right on your work computer, what can you do?
