TeamViewer Helps Small Business Compete in a Connected World

Need remote access to a PC or server? TeamViewer connects to any computer around the world within a few seconds and lets you work as if you were sitting right in front of it.

Small business owners who travel or who work from home have no doubt experienced the urgent need to access a file or collaborate remotely, and there is one web tool that can help.

With TeamViewer you can remotely control any computer as if you were sitting right in front of it, even through firewalls. All you have to do is start a small application, which does not require installation or administrative rights, and you are granted an all-in-on solution that allows you to not only remotely control any computer, but also to access meetings and do presentations with advanced features like VoIP and webcam viewing capability.

TeamViewer runs on all three favorite operating systems: Windows, Mac and Linux. And as the software is cross-compatible, a connection can be established from a Windows PC to Linux or from Linux to Mac, for example. Additional mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android also give users the freedom to do whatever they want, whenever they want, with whatever device they want.

TeamViewer provides a partner list of frequently contacted computers for one-click, easy access. This also allows users to see their partners' online status and communicate with them when they are available by using instant messaging. This makes TeamViewer a great productivity tool which saves time and money by connecting people all over the world. Instead of traveling long distances to your business partner or customer, TeamViewer users simply join them by connecting remotely from their workstation without the need to leave their desk.

For private users the software is absolutely free to use, without any of the "premium" capabilities withheld. Business users pay a one-time fee for a lifetime license, which makes the pricing very attractive, particularly for SMBs who have to monitor their expenses carefully and don't want to pay yearly fees that quickly add up.

In short, TeamViewer liberates small business employees from their desks, giving them the freedom work from whatever location they choose, with whatever device they have on hand. Because of this, TeamViewer has quickly grown to over 100,000,000 installations worldwide. You can download a free trial at
