Skype (internet) auditing and remote session control.

Colleagues,


Introducing our new service to deliver online auditing via Skype. This service allows supervisors and C/Ses the ability to check how their students and auditors are performing while auditing, how standard they are working, and, if necessary, the option to record part (or all) of a session in order to write a pink sheet. It works with all Theta-Meter e-meters.


This is the 2nd version of our service. It was created over the course of 2 years of testing. The result is a newer version that is much more stable, with less latency and can work with multiple auditors simultaneously. This version is also scalable and can work with web servers around the world.


We offer a web service which now can be used to make a better world.


You can find this web-service at http://web-meter.ru/go-to-session/. It is absolutely free for auditors, supervisors, C/Ses and for their clients.


How to use it? Here are the instructions for auditors and preclears: Everything you should know to set up a remote connection:


Instructions:


PreClear (Client)


1. Connect your Theta-Meter e-meter to computer.


2. Start program Theta-Meter remote web-meter client:



3. Copy his Client's ID to clipboard (marked in red) with button "Copy ID to Clipboard" and send it using Skype to your auditor.


Program Remote web-meter client for Windows. Download

Auditor


Option 1.


1. Get Client's ID by Skype.


2. Start Theta-Meter Pro program version 6.1 or higher and press button of remote connection (icon with two monitors), marked in red.



3. Enter Client's ID in a window and press button "OK".


Connection is set up!


Option 2.


1. Get Client's ID by Skype.


2. Start at his computer, tablet, or laptop with Chrome, Opera, Firefox or Vivaldi browser and go to: http://web-meter.ru/go-to-session/



3. Enter Client's ID in a window and press button "OK".


Instead of Skype you can use Google hangouts or any other program to set up audio and video communication over internet.


If PC press the button "Copy ref.to clipboard":



Then in clipboard appear reference "http://web-meter.ru/go-to-session/?sessionId=1597105". If the auditor clicks this reference in Skype, he will immediately gain access via web browser and will be able to get into session with no need to enter any client's ID. This is fast, easy and saves some time.


Here it is a short video how to work with this web service using Windows PC or Mac OSX:



It is also possible for C/Ses and supervisors to monitor what is happening in the auditor's space. Through a simple agreement, they can set up a connection with our service, send the C/S client's id, and then see and hear whats happening during the session. The C/Ses or supervisor can be in another physical location, but they can see and hear via Skype what is happening in session in order to write a pink sheet to the auditor. For remote viewing of auditing sessions, Skype (or another similar service) is all you need.


If you have any questions, please contact us.


Have a good session!
