In today’s competitive global economy, prioritizing the digital employee experience is critical to attracting and retaining skilled employees, fostering innovation, and driving productivity, profit, and strong customer experience. However, technological problems are inevitable, and the same digital tools that empower employees one minute can be a roadblock the next. The right IT service management (ITSM) tool enables IT and help desk staff to remove these roadblocks through remote support, which is why VMware has invested heavily in offering the best, most reliable, remote support solution to our Workspace ONE customers. In 2017, we partnered with AetherPal to create Workspace ONE Advanced Remote Management, and in February of this year, we acquired AetherPal and the company’s award-winning remote support solution.

Happy and engaged employees are critical to business success—and nothing puts more of a damper on morale than tech problems—which can cost a company millions of dollars a year in support and lost productivity.

As we continue to expand our remote support capabilities within the Workspace ONE platform, we’ve decided to rename Workspace ONE Advanced Remote Management to Workspace ONE Assist—a name that better conveys the product’s ability to assist employees when they need it the most.

Workspace ONE Assist is a comprehensive, fully integrated remote support solution that enables organizations to deliver quality IT support and maximize their end-user computing investments, while mitigating lost revenue, productivity, and decreased employee satisfaction. Workspace ONE Assist empowers IT and help desk staff to remotely view or control Android, iOS, and Windows devices, directly from the Workspace ONE console, while maintaining employee privacy and trust.
