Impero Remote Manager (discontinued)

Where we use the Impero Remote Manager is in a school setting and it works really well for us. We have our teachers use it every day to make sure their students are always on track. It works really well for students that we know are likely to get off track. We can see their screen and know exactly when they get off track and can get them back on track quickly.

SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere (DRE)

I think for ANY environment it's worth taking it out for a test drive. It's very powerful, especially when using the agent to connect to sessions where the end user doesn't need admin rights but when not in a VDI environment it likely would perform better with its built in functionality to ask for elevation.It is really powerful, even with the ability to run command line scripts without the user seeing (kind of a built in psexec) and it does work with Mac and Linux to some degree too so it really is worth trying out regardless of your environment. It may be just what you're looking for and the sales folks at DRE are not pushy at all, at least in my experience, and give great advice even at the expense of selling less licenses!

Cons

Impero Remote Manager (discontinued)

  • It crashes frequently, so that could be fixed.
  • The ability to take over a student's screen could be a little easier as well.

  • Names of computers in DRE should mirror the actual computer name in AD and not have nicknames. We adjust laptop and desktop names according to their location. If the DRE name isn't manually updated, it can make a lot of confusion.

The support for Impero Remote Manager is actually really good and I have been pleased every time I have had to work with them. Any time I've had an issue with the software, I've been able to call support and have the issue resolved very quickly and things start working again.

I haven't had to contact their support. However, SolarWinds in general has great customer support. I cannot imagine a specific product like this would be lacking.

Alternatives Considered

Impero Remote Manager (discontinued)

In overall features and what LanSchool can do, we actually like that product better than Impero. The reason why we went with Impero was because of the price. It has similar features but ultimately was a lot cheaper, so we chose Impero. We are a small charter school, so our budget is a lot smaller than in other school districts.
