Remote Access to IT Facilities
The Simply Web service offers high performance access to Northumbria IT facilities via a wide range of devices which have a connection to the internet, including smartphones, tablets, iPads, iPhones, laptops and home computers. Simply Web is the replacement for desktop ANYWHERE.
To make the connection you will need to download the latest Citrix Receiver. This is a small piece of software which takes very little time to install. Simply Web gives you access to:
