HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
QuickCAM technicians are available for on-line work by linking up to your computers on-line.
Thanks to the “over-the-internet” screen-to-screen technology and broadband internet we are able to establish very fast linkups allowing us the advantage of working in minimum one hour sessions. A typical session would be 2 or 3 hours and your operator can then get on with the related issues before linking up again the following day to continue instruction. The link up times can be flexible but must be by appointment.
The technician’s day is involved in on-line meetings and cannot be disturbed. Appointments can be made by email.
The technician will keep a detailed log of work done and time used as part of his report. The log will include work done on-line with your operator and other work off-line between sessions. This report will be issued to you after each session and will include the time remaining on your pre-paid purchase.
