Cisco Webex Support

We use WebEx Support Center in the IT department to support users as well as work with vendors remotely. This applies to physical desktops, laptops, and Virtual Desktops. We have around 200 employees. Most employees work in one of our offices, but we do have at least 5-10 users who are more frequently remote than they are in the office. It helps us remotely access machines we wouldn't otherwise have access to, due to lack of physical access. It's excellent for troubleshooting access problems from users' personal machines, as well.

Splashtop Business Access

It's great for Amazon Marketing firms who don't want to risk logging into their main client accounts from their own computers. It's also great if you have a special desktop computer at work that you need to access from your laptop anywhere. The pricing makes it economical and the setup is quite easy.

Pros

Cisco Webex Support

  • Simple Remote Access - WebEx Support Center works with either a permanent install or temporary executable, so you don't have to worry about users being particularly comfortable or knowledgeable about software installation. It also doesn't matter if the user is on an account without admin rights, you can still connect and see what's going on using the temporary executable.
  • Robust Access Options - You can take see the user's screen, take control of their screen, send files, and retrieve files. It's a great tool for troubleshooting issues that users might be experiencing and doesn't depend on them being able to find the files that you need to properly troubleshoot their issues.
  • Great performance - Even when users don't have a particularly great internet connection, you can still typically get good results and help them quickly. You're not going to do it over dial-up (if that even still exists for anyone), but it works acceptably well even over very modest DSL or satellite internet connections.

Splashtop Business Access

  • Remote desktop - Obviously this would be the whole reason for Splashtop but for some reason, it works better than others we have used in the past.
  • File transfer is really nice and it actually works the way it is supposed to.
  • SOS function is great because it allows for us to easily access machines that normally we could not unless a full client is installed.

Cons

Cisco Webex Support

  • During initial setups it can be a little confusing.
  • The look and feel is a little rigid. It feels like it is in need of a smoother UI update.
  • When a new user is introduced to webex and they are asked to share their desktop, it maybe a little difficult for the user to navigate to the correct buttons.
Shawn Oudavanh | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splashtop Business Access

  • You must download the application in order to use remote access. No browser remote access interface support.
  • There were issues with screen blanking on remote computers while a session was active, but that has been resolved.
  • There isn't a remote "wake-on-LAN' feature

The Enterprise package we purchased (Event Center, Remote Support, Meeting Center, and Training Center) for 100 users is the same annual price as GoToMeeting for 25 users. We will renew as it is a package deal. If it were just WebEx Remote Support, we would not renew at all.

Honestly, there are people available. But none of them will help you with your issues. They just keep assigning new service engineers who are often clueless.

It's hard to find any significant faults with Splashtop. It offers a very responsive remote access experience with clear and simple interface. There's very little learning curve as it's toolbar mimics other popular remote access solutions graphical user interface. It's gives you access to your remote computer quickly and stays out of your way

As a user of Cisco Webex Support, I have never had to contact Cisco for technical support as it is a very easy to use tool.

To be honest, I have only had to use the support once from Splashtop and that was because of a silly user error and then one other time to inquire about upcoming features for future versions. So I can't really speak to their support level as I have not really needed to use it. So that can be viewed two ways I suppose. But I see it as a positive.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Webex Support

Logmein GoToAssist
    • Logmein-GoToAssist is the product we used previously and still to some degree use with WebEx Support Center. It was not always reliable and suffered with network congestion but worked quite well for us, we as a team feel that WebEx Support Center is a more reliable and a better overall product. This to me is due to the simplicity of the UI and ease of use as well as the quality of the network performance.
Kaseya with VNC Connect
  • We use within Kaseya for our internally servers and local office users due to cost and efficiency, but it is more intended as console-level access and has a bit more features then WebEx Support Center, however is not good for remote support for our users who travel as it is slow.

Splashtop Business Access

Splashtop has beaten Kaseya in every metric I care about. I constantly struggled with Kaseya's complicated UI filled with lots of buttons and consistently bad connections. Once we switched to Splashtop, all of my frustrations disappeared. It is easy to train a new user on Splashtop since the set-up is quick and easy and the UI is so straightforward. I have not yet had any connection issues.

Return on Investment

Cisco Webex Support

  • WebEx Support Center works fabulously for us. We're all a very tech-savvy, experienced team, and WebEx Support Center is an excellent product for that skillset. We can get in and out of a machine quickly to diagnose an issue, with very little effort on the part of the user we are assisting.
  • WebEx Support Center is certainly more expensive than the previous product we had for this, GoToAssist. It is a bit less user-friendly of a UI, but overall performance is better.
  • We use WebEx as our primary collaboration/meeting software across our entire enterprise, as it integrates well with our Cisco DX, MX, and SX video teleconferencing units. Our users are used to WebEx, so using it for support purposes was only logical. The tight integration across a wide variety of products is great form a licensing cost standpoint and UX standpoint.

Splashtop Business Access

  • Splashtop is a great asset for the compliance heavy clients especially. Even if this isn't the "primary" remote access tool, it needs to be ready to employ.
  • Depending on the tier of software, all of the features needed are available and at your disposal.
