Remote support made easy with Logmein Rescue Mobile

LogMeIn LogoWhilst at the IT Service Desk & Support show at Earls Court in London, I stumbled across the Logmein stand. I have used Logmein in the past in order to access my PC’s remotely. But never to connect to a mobile phone!

RemoteThe all new rescue mobile solution brings a whole new meaning to mobile phone support. Using the rescue mobile control panel you can send a text message to any of the supported mobiles (see below) with a link on to download the mobile client of the software. Once you have installed the rescue mobile client, the phone will then be capable of connecting into the main server. Once in the queue a support analyst then can connect to the phone and even take full control of it’s features!
