  • And presenting today is…Myself, I’m Janelle Raney, the Senior Product Marketing Manager for GoToMyPC. This ia a photo of my son and me at a Dallas Mavericks’ game on vacation. While at the game, I got an urgent request from our PR team that they needed a file right away. This particular file sat on a secure network that I can only access from my computer. Luckily, I had my iPad with me. I signed in and got the file for PR and didn’t miss the game. It was great. So I’m excited to tell you more about GoToMyPC for mobile devices today and how it can make your life easier. Also joining me today is Glenn Dobson, our community leader and social media support. Many of you may know Glenn from our customer forums, twitter or Facebook. He has been with Citrix for 10 years and is an expert for all of our products. Today he will give us a brief demo on how GoToMyPC works on mobile devices.
  • For those of you that are just learning about GoToMyPC, it’s super easy to use. First, install it on your Mac or PC. Then connect to that machine from any browser or iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire. It’s like being there.
  • GoToMyPC is all about improving people’s lives and giving them the tools to improve their work-life balance.

  • We listen to our customers – through surveys, focus groups, social media and support. We have an extremely loyal customer base – they love the product b/c it’s convenient, reliable and secure. You can go online and read reviews in the app stores, on our website and through social media.
  • With a GoToMyPC subscription, you get access to your computer from any web browser, or mobile device. Because of the different screen sizes, people use these devices in very different ways. Let’s just look at average session length. On average, when people are connecting computer-to-computer they are on for about 60 minutes. This is an average, so it maybe that they are connecting for an entire day to telework, or to quickly jump on and check something. Computer-to-computer access is great for heavy lifting work – detailed spreadsheets, working on presentations and more.
  • For the tablet, the average session length is approx 20 minutes. Tablets are so convenient and great tools for accessing files and network programs from anywhere. Perfect for taking to meetings, on sales calls, while traveling – of even while sitting on the couch at home.
  • And the smartphones. The screen size is smaller and many customers are just amazed at how simple it is to navigate your computer on such a small space. A lot of people use this as “insurance” – just knowing they have full access to their computer in their pocket is incredibly reassuring in this fast paced, instant access world we live in.
  • And now let’s turn it over to Glenn who will show us the GoToMyPC app in action!
  • To send the command, simply open the iOS Keyboard from the GoToMyPC toolbar on top of the screen. If necessary, swipe to the special keys or turn the screen to landscape mode. Tap the Ctrl, Alt and Del keys on the keyboard toolbar one after another, not simultaneously. This will send the Ctrl-Alt-Del command just as if you were at the host PC.
