If you have lots of servers to manage, lots of credentials, different protocols, documents, other files, and need a single tool to manage it, this is the tool. Active Directory integrated, user and groups permissions, audit everything, keep data in encrypted files or in a database, customize everything, even the installer,

In my position Splashtop is perfectly suited for my needs. Allows me to connect to remote workers, or those who work from home. I use it while in the office as well as if I am doing after hours support at home. If you have workers who are local but at a different address, also useful. If you are supporting users just in the office you are in, obviously, it's not going to be a tool you will need

Pros
Devolutions
  • Customer service delivery, whereby you can connect to clients to assist and resolve an incident.
  • Working from home logging onto office based machine.
  • It helps to attend to a problem more quickly, thereby saving the cost of relocation and commuting to distant places.
  • Speed and cost elements are critical here.

  • Splashtop lets me see what my clients see.
  • Splashtop usually works even when my client's computer isn't in great shape. I can sometimes do things remotely that an onsite user cannot.
  • Splashtop lets me work on many computers from one location, without leaving my own desk.
  • Splashtop allows me to serve clients who are hundreds and even thousands of miles away. I can do work for people I've never met.
  • My clients can usually install Splashtop by themselves, preventing the need for a costly and time consuming site visit.
  • Splashtop lets me create installation links for remote access that have been configured specifically to my particular needs and the needs of my clients.

Cons
Devolutions
  • I would like to see advanced auditing in the Devolution's drive data source like there are in some of the others. But that's just something I'd like to see, it doesn't hinder my using the app.
  • I would love to see even more addons available from even more software and service developers, but again the addon manager is great already so it's not a hindrance what so ever.

  • Web Access should be available to all Splashtop Versions so support personnel do not need to have their laptop with them or Executable on USB Drive etc..
  • Remote access and scaling of screens sometimes is very difficult and have to resort to using keyboard commands to Navigate a screen because the mouse does not show where it is accurately on the remote screen no matter what changes you make on the client although I think this has been improving.
  • Intermittent loss of streamer access and showing that a system is online in the Dashboard has been flakey lately. What I mean by this is systems show offline then they come back online their own then offline again - intermittent

I've been using RDM for about 10 years now. I started with the free version, which I used for a few years, and eventually switched to the Enterprise version. I can never go back now! I use this tool for everything and cannot see doing my job without it! Whenever we have someone new come in or bring in a vendor/contractor, they always ask me what RDP tool I'm using. Once I explain about it's features and all, they're usually instantly sold on it. :)

I believe that I will renew Splashtop without any problems in the coming years as eating stable costs without increases even in critical periods such as the Covid virus, Splashtop allows access to 25 unattended stations and has continuous updates and new features. It also allows resale to users with sub-accounts

I use this tool for almost everything in my day to day job. I launch the VMware VI Client from RDM. I launch vSphere Web Client Sessions from RDM. I RDP from RDM. Access Dell iDRAC and HP iLO via RDM, as well as Cisco UCS Manager and iKVM. I have saved SSH Sessions to my VMware hosts. I have URLs saved to get to things like IPAM, etc

I've never had any issues with it, nor any connectivity issues. They always say when they'll be maintaining the system and it's always in the odd hours, so nobody uses then. But I've never had any issues.

The computer-to-computer connection using Splashtop seems to be very efficient with no lag time in seeing what is occurring on the remote computer.

Support Rating
Devolutions
I've never had to use support as I've never had an issue. That said, you can open a support ticket right from the UI. The user forums are active, and there are thousands of threads covering many topics. Very easy to get support if needed. This is an easy ten.

Tickets lingered in the support queue. Our environment is complex and some solutions never work in it but inconsistency and long turn around time on seemingly simple support issues force our pursuit of alternative solutions. Our environment is atypical and should not be used as a litmus test for solutions however we found the support issues were more wide spread with other orgs voicing the same delays.

It couldn't have been any easier to setup and I have had no issues with it since it was implemented. It's a great product and makes remotely connecting to another device so simple and quick. I can't recommend it enough

Alternatives Considered
Devolutions
  1. The types of sessions. You are not limited to just RDP sessions, you can do SSH, Web Browser, iLO, or really any session you can imagine that you might use to connect to a remote service
  2. The extensions, add-ons, and features of RDM. You simply can do a lot more.
  3. Automation - There's additional things you can do that help automate your workday to make things easier
  4. The interface - It's easier to navigate and deal with multiple sessions at a time.

Splashtop Business Enterprise is actually easier to implement and get it up and running, all users have to do is download the standard or personalize file and run it, then share the code with you and you are all set to go, i like it because you can even do it from your phone if necessary
