This document describes how Verba Technologies will help you with your software installations when you are ordering installation services.

The purpose of this document is to outline the information needed and tasks to be completed during the Installation services for the Verba Recording System product line. Since this installation will be conducted by Verba Technologies personnel from an off-site location (in order to reduce installation fees and expenses) Remote Desktop software will be utilized to complete these tasks. Verba Technologies uses the services of LogMeIn, a web based remote desktop support service. Verba Technologies can support additional forms of remote desktop or temporary VPN access at the client’s request.

Verba Technologies respects your confidentiality and acknowledges the trust bestowed when 3rd party vendors access your network, and will only use this connection to fulfill the installation requirements of the Client. For further information on Verba Technologies’ remote support services please see:
