How does Livecare Support work? Find all the answers to your questions.
Livecare Support is a remote support service that enables support professionals to resolve their customers' and/or colleagues' technical problems using shared screen, keyboard and mouse control, and other functionality. You can launch a remote support session with just one click, connecting from the Liveoperator installed on your computer with your customers' Livelet, using a session code.
Liveoperator is a work tool used by the operator to manage remote support sessions.
Within Liveoperator, the operator receives user support requests, manages them and, if necessary, transfers them to a colleague who is free or better able to help.
The user must have Livelet to send a support request.
Livelet is a work tool that allows users to connect to an operator and request remote support.
Internet Agent is Livecare Support's term for Hosts. As such, it is a programme used by the operator to access a server or remote PC without receiving a support request from a user.
A session code is a randomly-generated unique code. Operators provide this code to users who request support via Livelet, enabling them to provide remote support.
A company code is the ID number that identifies the company using the service within Livecare Support.
