At Forge3, we often need to connect with clients to see their computer screens for training or troubleshooting. Most of the time, we use a service called LogMeIn Rescue. It’s robust and designed specifically for companies like Forge3. We do pay for it, but it’s worth it for us.
However, we have been experimenting with a new service, also from LogMeIn, called join.me. Why? Simplicity.
Here’s how it works
The “sharer” visits join.me, clicks the “Share” button and provides their unique code to the “viewer.” The viewer enters that code on the join.me website and that’s it!
There are some very basic features included in the free plan. For example, the “sharer” can give the “viewer” control of his/her screen. join.me also includes a basic conference call service. However, if you need more features, you’re probably better off with something like LogMeIn Rescue, GoToAssist or one of the others.
The bottom line
join.me is a simple way to connect to someone’s screen…for free.
