This article applies to all users with a Premium or Corporate license in TeamViewer 13 or a Premium or Corporate subscription.

Within TeamViewer Management Console (MCO), you can administrate remote devices. The Essential Asset Management in the MCO shows all important information, e.g., computer name, operating system, hardware versions, or outdated software: Supporters and IT administrators receive all relevant information to do a good job. You can start planning your day even without establishing a remote control session to the respective devices one after the other.

Once you set up the Essential Asset Management, it works automatically. Supporters as well as all users within the company can view the information, provided that the remote device is assigned to the company administrator.

The great benefit from this feature is that you check the devices and discover which of them require your attention. You can delegate the tasks to a team member and save time by making only connections to the remote devices that need support.

  • The respective device is assigned to your company admin via a Host module or full TeamViewer application.
  • Requires Windows XP or later on remote side.
