Access and Support Remote Mac Desktops from other computer environments

Technicians have their preferences when it comes to the operating system they want to troubleshoot from. If a Mac remote app software is uni-dimensional in working, forcing the technician to troubleshoot from a particular computing environment, it will reduce the efficiency of the technician and thereby increase the time taken for issue resolution.  Zoho Assist is a multi-platform remote desktop software that allows your technicians to troubleshoot a Mac remote desktop from Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, and iOS devices, so they can stick to the system that works best for them. Technicians who choose to troubleshoot from Windows can use the native application instead of the browser to establish a faster connection.
