Remote access to Bishop Storehouse PC?

With the removal of our over 60 storehouse Church Service Missionaries ( CSMs ), we are losing a lot of expertise. One of the issues is the office computer in the storehouse, where the leadership normally places orders for bulk commodities to replenish the storehouse, and processes electronic orders sent in from bishops and branch presidents.

I have received an assignment to staff and get running the replacement, younger volunteers, but was wondering if there is a way for some of our experienced CSMs to do what they need to do from home, either by remotely accessing the PC or using a web based interface? I am in the over 60 group also, so should not be going in the office poking around. Does anyone here know the systems, or where I should ask the questions?

Is there a remote access solution that is approved? Or that is know to work?

I'd suggest working with the line of presiding authority to get support/permission for doing what you want. You should be able to contact the Global Service Desk (GSD).

I think the church has a remote software, but it may only be available to CHQ support. There's any number of commercial products that can do it, but then you run into permissions/guideline questions.
