Supporting a smooth transition back to the office


It’s all about creating a safe and happy working environment to entice your staff back to the office –something easier said than done! But with the help of NetSupport School, you can navigate social distancing measures, staff’s personal preferences and new company procedures with ease.

Thumbnail mode for monitoring

Monitor all computers across the network in a single view.
The connected devices can be viewed in two different ways. Image Mode displays a thumbnail view of the screen providing a quick and easy method for monitoring activity. Report Mode displays details of the machines, such as name, IP address, user name, platform, current security state, policy settings, room, running application and all websites. From Report mode, the Technician can activate and close applications and websites on staf devices by right-clicking the required icon.

Use 1:1 remote control to fix issues from afar.
When problems arise, IT technicians can perform powerful 1:1 PC Remote Control on any selected computer, capture screenshots, annotate the screen and provide direct technical assistance to anyone – without coming directly to their device to do so – thereby maintaining physical distancing.
