Remote Screen sharing

Remote screen sharing is an excellent tool for training sessions and solving more complex problems. Remote Internet Access allows Jim to run your computer with you from his office - and talk with you on the phone at the same time.

As you and Jim take turns controlling your computer and discuss screen images and messages displayed, it's almost as if Jim were sitting in your office with you!

We are able to work with you this way because we use the Mikogo software system. See more about this powerful tool at the following link:

This is how a remote internet access session works:

1. At the agreed upon time Jim will call you on the phone to see if you are ready to begin your training or consulting session.

2. Jim will give you a 6 digit access code and ask you to go to the  website.

3. Once you reach the site, you will key in your access code and then click "Join Session" to start your session.

4. Now that your remote session has started, Jim can see your screen on his computer and what he types at his keyboard shows up on your screen. You can watch as he enters text, moves or clicks the mouse, and runs commands on your computer - and he can watch as you do the same - and all the while you and he will be conversing on the phone.

Note: Once your session is started, you can end it at any time, and once ended, a session can not be restarted until you enter a new access code. This gives you complete control.


In some cases we can quote you a fixed price to solve your Peachtree problem. If we are not certain how much time will be needed to solve your problem, we will give you an estimate based on our rate of $150/Hr with a minimum fee of $95.
