01 Communique releases new remote access service with innovative Remote
TORONTO, July 16 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX: ONE -
www.01com.com) announced today the release of I'm InTouch Premium, a remote
access solution that builds on the award winning I'm InTouch with new features
designed for business users. I'm InTouch Premium enables organizations to
provide employees with cost effective remote access to their workstations from
anywhere, without the need to leave their computers on all the time.
Remotely Access Your Shut Down PC - save on electricity bills and
increase your security
One of the key new features is our innovative Remote Wake-Up that allows
users to remotely access their distant computers, even if they are not powered
on. I'm InTouch automatically detects if your computer has been turned off and
"wakes it up" to provide you with remote access.
The ability to remotely wake-up your computer is especially important to
businesses that want to provide employees with remote access to workstations.
Instead of leaving their computer on when leaving at night, for the weekend or
for vacation, employees can shut their PCs down and still be confident that
they can access their important files at anytime. Not only does this save on
electricity; but also enhances security since there can be no unauthorized
access to a shut down PC.
Studies have shown that the cost of leaving a single computer on all the
time can be upwards of $15.00 a month per PC. For businesses with many
computers, the cost can quickly add up. In the past, companies were forced to
live with high electricity bills as part of the price of providing remote
access for employees. This has all changed with I'm InTouch Premium. Instead
of leaving all your computers on, a single PC can be used to "wake-up" any
computer in your office when needed, dramatically reducing your electricity
Central Administration - control and manage all your PCs from a single
I'm InTouch Premium also includes new central administration controls
that allow for multiple computers to be managed and accessed from a single
screen. Companies can now designate a user as the administrator of their I'm
InTouch Premium account. The administrator can login to the account's
administration page, which lists all the computers associated with the account
and their online status. They can then access any computer with a single click
to perform maintenance or provide support. From the same web page, the
administrator can access the online billing system to purchase or cancel
licenses, add and remove users, or suspend licenses.
Dedicated Account Manager - let us worry about all your remote access
Adding further value for businesses is the inclusion of a dedicated
Account Manager at no additional charge. Each I'm InTouch Premium customer is
assigned a dedicated Account Manager that they can call directly to receive
immediate assistance. The Account Manager's primary responsibility is to
ensure a hassle-free experience for the customer right from their first call.
I'm InTouch Premium is designed to be a remote access solution that any
business can deploy without making any compromises. Everything is managed by
01 Communique so there are no concerns for customers regarding upgrades,
downtime, maintenance, or compatibility issues. Once a business signs up for
the service, they can have access to their computers within minutes.
New users can try out I'm InTouch Premium free of charge for 30 days
without any limitation to the software by signing up at
www.imintouch.com/premium_trial_setup.asp A subscription to the service starts
at $12.95 monthly or $129.95 annually per license with group discounts
