ScreenMeet Remote Support Tool for Dynamics 365 Customer Service



I met Lou Guercia when he was president and CEO of Scribe Software, the leading CRM integration tool.  Scribe was acquired by TIBCO Software in 2018.  I recently reconnected with Lou and learned about ScreenMeet, the company he joined as chief operating officer.   The following is a description of the product provided by ScreenMeet:

ScreenMeet is a cloud-based remote support tool designed to integrate with Dynamics 365 Customer Service. By enabling customer service and IT support organizations to address critical technical issues directly from their CRM or ticketing platform, it streamlines the process and provides a fully browser-based support experience.

You can also use ScreenMeet with other CRM products or even on its own without a CRM.

Here is a short video demo of ScreenMeet with Dynamics integration:


ScreenMeet - Cloud-based Remote Support Integrated with Dynamics 365 Customer Support

Once integrated with a Dynamics 365 CS organization, the ScreenMeet widget appears on Case pages. It allows you to create and launch remote support sessions from the same location as the support agent’s CRM and ticketing platform. In addition, ScreenMeet captures a robust set of data from support sessions and stores it within the Dynamics Case object for use with auditing & analytics to improve support processes and self service initiatives.


ScreenMeet is 100% browser-based for the agent; after the end user connects to the session, the agent is prompted to join via a new tab. The following screen capture is of the viewer window with the associate suite of support tools:


These tools enable the support agent to solve the end user’s issue quickly and effectively. Some key features include:

     Cross-platform support from all modern browsers
     Permission-based escalation of agent privileges
     Local and domain-level Windows admin (UAC) escalation
     Windows and Mac tools & shortcuts
     Multi-agent URL invites
     Bidirectional file transfer
     Remote clipboard
     Reboot and reconnect
     Low bandwidth mode

The above is an example of one key feature, the Windows Tools menu, which agents can use to perform actions on the end user device directly. It also has a built-in search functionality, so you can find the relevant shortcut and execute it without digging through the UI or the end user’s system.

ScreenMeet Cobrowse and Dynamics Omni-Channel

Screenmeet also offers a no-download solution for ecommerce and B2B browser-based support use cases. It will enable you to guide your end user through site navigation - for example, completing purchases from the shopping cart. Cobrowse sessions can be launched from the Dynamics Omni-Channel workflow.


Once connected, the agent can guide the end user through site navigation similarly to the support solution--all from the browser!

Support Sessions: Records and Reports

After a support agent creates and completes a session, a new record is generated. This record tracks agent/user connection and disconnection, all mid-session actions taken by the agent via the ScreenMeet support tool suite and the system info retrieved from the end user’s device.


In turn, this data can be leveraged to create reports using Dynamics’ native reporting features to gain insights on key benchmarks--session activity by month, for example:

Conclusion

Combined with the Dynamics 365 Customer Service, ScreenMeet provides an integrated support and ticketing solution with a similar, case-based workflow. Feel free to trial ScreenMeet Remote Support on AppSource.

The DATA Act Driving Grant Management Automation

The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act enacted in May 2014 calls for making spending data available in open, standardized formats to be published online.  It is a continuation of transparency initiatives and lessons learned with experiences such as grants.gov, the 2009 economic stimulus under the Recovery Act and the spending site USASpending.gov.

Government grantees will have significant new administrative responsibilities.  Many organizations that were tracking grants in spreadsheets or documents will have to adopt more sophisticated automated grant management systems such as Microsoft Grants Manager to keep up with reporting rules.

For profit companies will lose some privacy as a result of this law.  Grant recipients will be required to disclose information including officer salaries.

Continued improvements to publishing grant opportunities such as grants.gov may make it easier to find grants. These reforms together are designed to improve the effectiveness of grant prog…

Key Concepts for Microsoft Dynamics 365: Entities and Attributes

To understand Microsoft Dynamics 365 (formerly Dynamics CRM and Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement), you need to learn some new terms and concepts that may be a bit different from what you know from databases and solutions that are hosted on premises. This is the second post in a series, and covers entities and attributes.

Entities are the most fundamental part of Dynamics 365 in terms of storing your business data.  They are similar in concept to database tables, and the relate to one another like tables in a relational database. For instance, Dynamics 365 has an entity called Contacts that stores data such as name, address, and email address of people that you track.   Accounts is a related entity that describes the organizations to which Contacts may belong.

Although they are similar to database tables, Dynamics entities allow you to do some customizations that are not possible in a standard database table.  Field labels, for instance, are part of an entity, and they may differ from …
