Tomsk Inc.
During the pandemic, our company worked remotely. Various staff in our company had technical difficulties or needed assistance installing software in order to work. DeskRoll Remote Desktop helped us to make this process seamless. Rather than deal with the aggravation of trying to walk someone through something over the phone, we were able to get things established in a simple, easy way.

We selected RPort over TeamViewer because it's got features that TeamViewer does not have. It's designed by DevOps and I find it suited pretty well for my day-to-day tasks.
