It provides access to our software from the widest variety of devices, without requiring agents to do any kind of upgrade or installation. We just love it!”
To use AccessNow, the agent just needs a Web-browser and internet connection. After opening the web page, the agent enters the address of the Ericom AccessNow Server (wherever it’s installed, such as on a Terminal Server, virtual server or a physical computer).
