TeamViewer Offers New Features For Teamwork

TeamViewer GmbH, a leading provider of solutions for online communication and collaboration, has just released TeamViewer 4.1. With their cutting-edge desktop sharing software, TeamViewer improves information access in a remote environment. Designed to make teamwork effortless and straightforward, single click connection from any window and instant messaging for groups is now available.

The TeamViewer quick connection button is new with version 4.1. Enabling instant connection, the button appears in each window when users are signed in with their free TeamViewer account. Clicking on this button displays the TeamViewer partner list and allows users to instantly share their document with their contacts.

With TeamViewer 4.1 users have the secure option of presenting a single window; only the document selected is shared while all other windows remain invisible to their partner or partners. To facilitate teamwork, users can choose interactive input on the presented document. If the interactive feature is selected, all parties are able to make changes and modifications to the shared document.

Further enabling online collaboration, TeamViewer 4.1 offers enhanced chat instant messaging. Perfect for business communication, group chat is possible with multiple partners able to share immediately and effectively. Status updates signal partner availability while chat messages sent when partners are away will be displayed when the user is available. Ideal for quick communication with colleagues, instant chat is a fast way to initiate two way communication.

"With the business trend away from command and control and towards collaboration and team work, companies are selecting tools which build group cooperation," begins Dr. Tilo Rossmanith, Founder and Director of TeamViewer GmbH. "Designed to make online collaboration easy and productive, TeamViewer 4.1 brings single click connection and group chat into our desktop sharing solution, making online collaboration more straightforward than ever before. We are confident TeamViewer 4.1 will have a solid place within any organization which values and inspires teamwork," finishes Rossmanith.

TeamViewer 4.1 uses the same free TeamViewer accounts introduced in version 4. Users simply download the free TeamViewer software and sign up for an account including a user name and password. Each TeamViewer account stores the ID or account name of partners. Once signed in, users are able to access their partner lists from any public workstation, via internet and through the secure TeamViewer connection.

Like all TeamViewer solutions, TeamViewer 4.1 maintains the highest possible security standards. TeamViewer works behind firewalls, enabling information sharing without compromising computer security.
