Admittedly some of those options are remarkably niche, but it should cover most business environments irrespective of their diverse system choices.
What TeamViewer offers is a remote access solution that can be expanded to include more than just two people working on a computer, to provide an alternative to physical meetings and brainstorming sessions.
Installation on the PC, for both the host and guest systems, usually requires the installation of a small (23Mb) application. You can run it without installation if required.
As part of the install, you are asked if you want to add the TeamViewer printer driver, for remote printing, use the TeamViewer VPN for extra security, and interface with Microsoft Outlook.
To make all this work as intended, you also need to sign up at TeamViewer, something they curiously fail to mention when you download the app.
Once you have that, and the app installed at both ends, you can establish a link and access the remote computer much like you would if sat at it.
The interface of the remote connection, like so many of these tools, has been influenced by Microsoft Remote Desktop. As it provides a centrally placed control bar from where you can access all the actions you might need while connected to a remote computer.
On the remote system, a small taskbar window pops up that enables anyone at the computer to get to some of the tools, like chat and annotation.
It also informs them who is controlling their computer, should they need confirmation.
Alongside the application is a web portal where all the activity on the account is logged for reporting, and a list of all the registered endpoints can be maintained here.
Like the installable software tools, the web portal has a very clean and easily understandable design, with menus on the left and information panels on the right.
