3. Chat Online with a Help Desk Analyst

It is called a "Remote Program" because Help Desk Analysts, ONLY with the permission of you, the customer, can remotely view the desktop you are viewing and share control of the keyboard and mouse in order to guide you to solve your issue. This Live & Hands-On troubleshooting approach is provided by the ITS Help Desk. The technology used to allow this service is called Bomgar: Secure Remote Support Software.
