Bomgar, the worldwide leader in secure, appliance-based remote support solutions announced today that the University of York is using its remote support solution to provide multi-platform tech support across its campuses. Founded in 1963 with just 230 students, the University has grown to more than 13,000 students and has become one of the top ten universities in the United Kingdom for teaching and research, and among the top 100 universities in the world.

Prior to implementing Bomgar, York was using a basic screen-sharing tool that could only be used to remotely support managed PCs on campus. The solution did not give York's IT department the ability to provide remote support for additional users, such as students or faculty with their own laptop or desktop in their dorm room or at home.

"It had become increasingly clear that we needed to do more to support our users and the variety of devices they were bringing to university," said Sarah Kennedy, IT Support Office Manager at York. York's IT department searched for a remote support solution that would work with multiple operating systems and enabled their support team to collaborate and resolve issues without requiring extensive end-user involvement. "Some vendors charged extra to support anything other than Mac and Windows, whereas Bomgar's solution also includes support for Linux and a wide range of mobile devices for no additional costs. There are so many extra features with Bomgar, such as secure session logs and the ability to transfer files between support reps that you just don't get with a basic screen sharing software."

Since implementing Bomgar, the IT department has experienced a massive shift in their approach to IT support. Kennedy continued,"Prior to Bomgar, our answer was 'no' if someone requested support for their personal machine. Now, if they ask us to do something like help them connect to the VPN from their home, we can so 'No problem, I'll connect you.' Gone are the days when we just had to say 'no.'"

York's IT department has seen a notable decrease in escalation to second-tier support now that the Bomgar solution is in place. Best of all, they have received numerous emails and comments from end users who are pleased with the highly responsive and effective IT support they are now experiencing. York's IT department is so happy with Bomgar, they plan to promote their remote support services by deploying the Bomgar Button so staff and students can request support by simply clicking "the big B."
