Not to toot our own horn, but when it comes to remote technology management, we are kind of a big thing. 😉

Since 2009, we have been bringing award winning tools to enable integrators to monitor, diagnose and resolve client device issues. We know for a lot of  integrators out there, remote support of a piece of hardware in the field, is still a bit foreign. Not to worry, Ihiji has you covered with a number of options to enhance your knowledge in RMR and services. As the developer of the first tool on the market used by integrators to remotely support their clients gear, we are used to having to help educate an audience of professionals who’ve built a career of expertise in other areas, not remote technology management. That is perfectly fine, because over the years we have built out a team of industry and technology experts in all of the areas that you will need to understand if you want to start adding services to your client offerings. As you can see from the recap at the CEDIA Expo, we don’t mind passing it around.

If we didn’t get the opportunity to connect at CEDIA or if any of your technicians need to get up to speed on remote technology management, or running your services business, take a look the different ways we can help.
