A Desktop-Quality Emulator in a Centrally Managed Browser-Based Environment

Centrally managed, browser based HTML5 terminal emulator. Any host, any device.

TTerm Connect, HTML5 terminal emulation

TTerm Connect is Turbosoft’s terminal emulator for the web. Built on common web technologies and standards such as HTML5 and JavaScript, TTerm Connect requires no Java, no ActiveX controls and no end user installation. Connect your users with nothing more than a modern web browser, on a desktop or on the go.

Access your Host System from Any Online Device

TTerm Connect offers its own client front end, a web based replacement for a desktop terminal emulator, or if you want to go your own way, TTerm Connect will integrate into your existing website or page.

Your users can seamlessly transition from one device to another, transferring a session from a tablet or mobile device to another desktop or device and pickup up from exactly where you left off. Not only is this convenient, but in challenging environments such as warehouse facilities or factory floors where WIFI dropouts may be an issue, TTerm Connect maintains the host connection so that your users can jump back in.

Built in management tools enable real time user and session monitoring and smart features such as 'shadowing' let help desk staff step in and assist end users or gracefully disconnect a host session.

Speak to a Turbosoft consultant today to discuss how we could integrate TTerm Connect into your workplace, deploying a flexible and consistent emulator experience to desktops, notebooks and mobile devices.
