Once in my workplace, I experienced my computer needed certain settings. Since the one authorized to do the setting was only the IT department in the head office, I had to ask for their assistance. The problem was that my location was miles away from the IT department office. But the distance was not a problem because IT can do it remotely. I was amazed by that.
