Teachers rely on the availability of their classroom computers. In the event of a system issue you therefore need the school technician to get you up and running as soon as possible.
With the NetSupport Assist ‘Support Tool’ you can supply all the system data the technician needs to help diagnose and fix the problem. The Support Tool is a small utility installed on each machine. With one click the problem machine is interrogated and the system files, processes and log files are saved in a file that can be supplied to the IT technician.
Wired and Wireless Support
NetSupport Assist is fully optimized for use with both wired and wireless networks. The philosophy for managing computers in a wireless environment is to maximize performance without compromising the network or the devices servicing it.
With that in mind, NetSupport Assist provides a specific low-bandwidth mode that allows data throughput to be matched to the wireless network and access point speeds when performing a real-time show to a class.
