The VMware development team is excited to announce that VMware RemoteHelp 20.07 for macOS is publicly available.
VMware RemoteHelp is a SaaS based standalone (no integration or dependency on Workspace ONE) remote management product that is geared towards the carrier market. This product enables carrier Customer Care Agents to remotely diagnose, support, and troubleshoot problems on mobile devices for end users (subscribers) in a simple and secure way. VMware RemoteHelp supports Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows 10 platforms.
These integrations must be in place for seamless access from Care Portal to VMware RemoteHelp.
- CRM Integration: Integration with Carrier Care Portal allows access from within the Care Console.
- SSO (Single Sign On) Integration: Enables User authentication for Care Agents.
- SMSC/SMTP gateway (Optional): Some Carriers can arrange for SMSC/SMTP gateway integration (instead of a 3rd party aggregator) to ensure SMSs/emails are coming from a known source.
The desktop client is hosted in the SaaS environment and is downloaded to the device at the time of Remote session and is uninstalled at the end of the session (based on configuration).
The product is offered in two SKUs (Standard, Plus).
- Standard SKU provides VMware branded console & client with Remote View capabilities only.
- Plus SKU provides a branded client/console with full Remote Control capabilities (based on the availability of signed clients).
- macOS – High Sierra or later.
- Carrier CRM integration, SSO integration. SMSC/SMTP integration (optional).
- Any HTML5 compatible browser for Care agent access.
End users download it from the SaaS environment based on the email link sent by the Care agent.
