Providing Remote Access to Sharetec for your Employees
Some of you have already been allowing employees to work remotely and have existing plans in place. There are generally two ways that employees can remotely access your Credit Union’s Sharetec platform:
- Remote Access Software – Your IT provider or IT department can help you utilize any number of products to remote access to your work desktop station. Some of the more popular solutions are LogMeIn, GoToMyPC, TeamViewer and Bomgar. This allows you to remotely connect to your work PC just like you are sitting at your desk. All User Credentials for your employees to access Sharetec would be the same.
- VPN connectivity – Service Bureau customers can connect remotely into the Sharetec Terminal Server using a VPN connection. In this scenario our Hardware Engineers would assist you with installing a VPN client on to your Laptop or PC, and help you get logged into Sharetec remotely. You will log in to Sharetec using your normal Sharetec User ID and credentials. We normally charge for this service but during this time we are waiving setup fees. This only includes remote access and does not include peripheral or printer setup. This is unfortunately not available for In House customers unless you have your IT department setup a VPN connection to your inhouse network.
I hope that the above is helpful information to you at this time. If you want to avail yourselves of any of the above items, please contact Customer Care Team.
As always, we can be reached by calling 888-778-6301 or by contacting Customer Care.
