Remote Usage Options

Topaz Systems offers several options for virtualized, remote desktop, RDP, Citrix, terminal services, VDI, and thin client environments. We provide software tools and support for all the leading third-party environments. If you have questions about remote usage, please contact Topaz Dev Support.


Topaz® signature pads are Citrix Ready and have worked with remote environments for many years; with thousands of signature pads running Citrix, Topaz has the greatest support for Citrix by a wide margin. This margin is increasing daily.


For customers looking for Topaz signature pads compatible with remote environments and set-up information, see the options below.
