As the proliferation of connected devices continues, there is an opportunity for services vendors to provide improved remote device management and support services for these devices
Woburn, MA (PRWEB) October 14, 2008
Windows Embedded device manufacturers and service providers seeking to build remote support into their product offerings can take advantage of the new LogMeIn Embedded program, from LogMeIn, Inc.
Virtually every computing device today - from office computers to point-of-sale (POS) and kiosk systems - has connectivity to the Internet, is more sophisticated than ever and benefits from being managed and supported by IT professionals. Remote support via the Internet can save time and money by reducing the need to send a technician to the physical location of the device. By building LogMeIn's award-winning remote connectivity into their product offerings, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and companies that provide support services for these devices can deliver fast and-cost-effective service to their customers.
"As new breeds of smarter, Windows's based devices are connecting to the Internet in disparate and remote locations, embedded device manufacturers and service providers are looking for a better way to access, manage and support these remote systems," said Andrew Burton, Vice President of Products, LogMeIn. "The LogMeIn Embedded Program provides tools and services to specifically benefit IT professionals, support providers and OEMs who are supporting and managing Internet-connected, embedded devices.
