Avalon Computers

It all began ​at the ​end of 2011. After spending almost a decade as an IT manager in a reputed firm, one fine day, Niall Gowanlock decided to quit his job. ​He thought it was time to put his rich experience in networking to use, and to set up his own IT support firm. His dream led him to the charming, mountainous county, Cumbria, where he set up Avalon Computers.

Today, Avalon Computers supports more than ten companies in the area, besides a lot of home customers. The long road to steady growth started from humble beginnings, and it involved many challenges. One of the primary challenges was finding the right remote support software.

The re-invention fervor of Zoho Assist is at full throttle. You may be aware that supporting from a Mac in Zoho Assist is no sweat since our browser-based Technician Console enables you to Reboot and Reconnect a Windows computer or even handle the User Access Control window. It’s fast and simple, to put it in short. Now, we have reached a couple of Mac OS-specific milestones, which we would like to share with you.

The debate on whether Java is dead or not is still not dead. But, Zoho Assist users need not rely on Java anymore to join a remote support session in Mac OS. Supporting Mac customers and guiding them to check if Java is enabled or not and if the Java version is up-to-date is indeed a pain.

Zoho Assist - Support Your Mac Users Hassle-free!

Hence, we are happy to unveil the Objective-C based Customer Console for Mac users, crafted for months by our lead developers of Zoho Assist. It will ensure a quick and easy remote support experience while you support Apple fans across the world.

Zoho Assist: Getting rid of that invisible man!

Have you ever encountered an invisible man who stands like a wall between you and your remote computer? He stops you from controlling the remote computer, and you wouldn’t know why. And, your customer will be equally clueless after handing over her computer to you for troubleshooting. Now, this is a moment of frustration only IT pros can relate to.

If you are one such IT pro, you would’ve by now deciphered who this invisible man is. Yes, it is the User Access Control (UAC) window that appears only on the secure desktop and not the normal desktop of the Windows PC. UAC is a security setting enabled in Windows operating systems, starting from Vista. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could have a remote solution that is UAC-compatible?

Zoho Assist is one remote support software that is UAC-compatible; it intuitively detects the UAC window on the remote computer and displays the Run As Service notification. After you click Run As Service, you can continue your session with administrator privileges, which enables you to access the UAC window. And, all this you get without spending a cent, because UAC compatibility is available in the free version.

A support technician, who troubleshoots by conducting remote sessions, will face new challenges with each update and a new version of an operating system (OS). The big question is perhaps the compatibility of your remote support product, like Zoho Assist, with the new OS.

We are all aware of the release of Windows 8. The expectation from Windows 8 with its new Metro UI is that it will find its place in mobiles, tablets and PCs across the world. And so, many of you or your customers might want to change your OS. And, if you are wondering whether your move will affect Zoho Assist, please be assured that Zoho Assist is perfectly compatible with Windows 8.

You can support your customers who run any OS, be it Mac, Linux or Windows, from your Windows 8 PC and vice versa i.e., you can connect from any OS to the Windows 8 PC of your customer. You can perform file transfer, offer unattended remote support, run remote PC diagnostics, and use all the features of Zoho Assist. However, it’s mandatory that you run the latest version of Zoho Assist, which is anyway not an issue because Zoho Assist gets updated automatically.

Do send us your comments about your experience with Zoho Assist on Windows 8. We’ll be eager to hear them.

Happy supporting!
