Kyocera Mita America Announces New ‘Connect To You’ Service for End Users

Connect to You Enables the Kyocera Diagnostic Center Help Desk to Provide Prompt Troubleshooting for Dealer Technicians and End-Users

FAIRFIELD, N.J. – June 21, 2007 – Kyocera Mita America, Inc., one of the world's leading document solutions companies, today unveiled a new service being offered through authorized Kyocera Dealer Technicians, titled Connect to You (CTU). The CTU service allows dealer technicians to remotely connect end-users with Kyocera’s Diagnostic Help Desk Center, enabling the Center to work with the Dealer technician onsite in real time to diagnosis and resolve end-user inquiries. Using the CTU service the Help Desk can visually verify a user’s network settings, print driver settings, and more, allowing them to interpret the problem and provide the correct resolution.

“Kyocera Technical Services takes dealer and end-user support very seriously, and believes customer satisfaction is key to our growth and expansion in the marketplace,” said Terry Knopsnyder, vice president of engineering, Kyocera Mita America. “The new Connect to You service will help us to further develop our customer friendly service and support.”

In the past, dealer technicians would discuss end-user issues with Kyocera Help Desk representatives over the phone - which could be very time consuming. Now with CTU, the help desk while on the phone with the end-user, gains remote access to a user’s computer with as much or little privacy as the user is comfortable with.

Two essential options for the service include “View Only” and “Full Control.” View Only allows a Kyocera Help Desk representative to watch a user make changes on their desktop, but does not give them direct access to the computer from their remote location. Conversely, the Full Control choice allows the Help Desk complete access to a user’s print drivers and functions, while the user sits back and watches the corrective actions being made directly by the Kyocera Help Desk. This allows the end-user options for privacy settings while enabling the technician to offer the most effective and prompt service possible.
