What is Essential Data’s Application Sharing Service?

Application sharing is a component of remote access that allows users to access applications, files, programs, or documents from their own computers simultaneously in real time. The shared applicationsor documents run on a host which is a high-end secured server.

Dropbox, Google Drive, and GoToMeeting are all simple examples of application or file-sharing programs. A user can upload documents to these programs via the Internet for download or sharing by another person.  This process saves both users time and money in terms of travel to physical locations.

Application sharingprovided by Essential Datarelies on screen-sharing technology, which uses the Internet to allow users to remotely view and control software applications on a central host which is asecured server. The best part of using application sharing technology is that remote users can easily run software not installed on their systems, and can even use software that is not compatible with their operating system. This situation happens because remote users are literally viewing and controlling applications installed on secured servers.

Application sharing is the foundation of online training and demonstrations, and is often used by businesses to reduce the amount of travel for employees.  This kind of sharing saves businesses time, travel, money, and a host of other expenses that would be incurred without it.
