ASG-Remote Desktop

Best for users that have many desktops or servers they need to login to. Great in my environment of multiple clients and the need for fast login and resolution of their issue. If you have a large infrastructure or multiple clients, this is a product you need!

LogMeIn is a great standalone (or secondary) remote access system. Most monitoring systems provide built-in tools for remote management and connections. LogMeIn is extremely useful at least as a secondary system if not primary. It does a phenomenal job of forcing reboots to inaccessible machines. It may not be the best software if you are cost conscious as they appear to raise the price annually.

Cons

  • Can be overly complicated at first, but you can add into the features as you build your organization skills

  • The screen resolution could be improved. The highest resolution setting is still not great. A bit blurry. Probably needs an improved driver that would work better with the video card.
  • I wish I could add more info on the info section of the client. Like model and serial number of the PCs.
  • Also changing the icons on the list view of the client would be nice to differentiate the systems.

Alternatives Considered

ASG-Remote is very flexible and with so many options available it makes the configuration you want for your setup super simple. Other products do not offer the extra features for database and reporting. As well, it offers all the connection types you can possibly think of. The ability to automate tasks for regular servers and workstations is amazing!

I evaluated TeamViewer but I found LogMeIn to be more self reliant. I don't need someone else to be on the other end of the connection. And if it is a computer you have to manage updates on and other technical maintenance it is a must. I honestly haven't reviewed other software like LogMeIn in a while. I guess I haven't had the need.

  • Positive impact for sure. Saves me at least 100 hours of commute time each year.
  • I am able to address problems quicker.
  • The phone app is great for when you don't have a laptop.
