LogMeIn Pro

Perfect for working remotely. It allows you to flip between user's computers.
If I copy from the host computer it can be pasted to a user's computer, but not vice versa, that would be useful.

VMware Fusion

VMWare Fusion is perfectly suited for an application developer because it allows the dev to create cross-platform applications across the entire spectrum of operating systems without changing devices. An example of where it is less appropriate would be an environment where users are not required or have no need, to use multiple operating systems.

Pros

LogMeIn Pro

  • Ease of connection. You can use their web login and connection through there. You can also install the client app and connect via it. Easy and fast.
  • Remote Control is fantastic. It scales the screens great. There is no lag in the screen refreshes.
  • Remote printing is good. You can be working on your PC at the office via LogMeIn and print to your local PC at your current location with ease.

VMware Fusion

  • Getting around the settings of VMware Fusion is very intuitive, I've never had trouble finding or tweaking a setting (hard disk increase for example).
  • Creating and restoring Snapshots is very easy and useful.
  • Installing and pulling in a previously created VM is very simple.

Cons

LogMeIn Pro

  • Pricing is very high, and is one of the reasons it got demoted at our organization.
  • Not having file transfer on the main remote screen, but having to switch back is awkward.
Hunter Bonner | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Fusion

  • With OSX - 10.14.1 and the latest version of Fusion - 11.0.2 the user interface has taken a step back IMHO.
  • I would like to see price decrease.
  • Better remote host connection capabilities - remote server connections are available but connections are spotty.

For Apple workstations VMware Fusion is the virtualization software to use. No other application (free or paid) can do what Fusion can. The features and constant updates make Fusion an application that cant be beat.

As I have said 3-4 times in this review, VMware fusion is the best application for system vitalization on Apple Workstations. I have tried all the others and you get what you pay for in the cases of free applications. Even when tested against paid options, Fusion is the best for me and my team.

My calls and e-mails to tech support have been few and far between, but those rare interactions were always pleasant and handled professionally. Most support can be accessed electronically, but when the need arises to actually speak to a human being, LogMeIn's customer service reps are clearly well-trained and knowledgeable. Another plus: there isn't the language barrier that I've experienced with other technology companies' support centers.

I have never contacted VMware, but there is a lot of support online on message boards, forums, StackOverflow, YouTube tutorial videos, and the like. VMware has been around nine years longer than its leading competitor, VirtualBox, although both seem to have a good presence of online user communities who can help solve issues that come up.

Be aware if you have dual monitors on the host, you can only view one at a time on remote, but it is easy to toggle back and forth

Alternatives Considered

LogMeIn Pro

ConnectWise is a much easier program to use. The end-user either types in a code or you send an email with a link to the session. A small applet is installed on their computer so you can connect. And this applet is removed when the session is over. Constant remote access capabilities are about the same since both programs allow you to install a program that runs as a service on the client system. This gives you access to that system at any time.
Rob Battaglia | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Fusion

I've heard of other/competitive software but frankly once I tried VMware, I never looked back. There is absolutely nothing that I need that this product does not deliver. It's fast, effective and seems to be extremely durable and reliable. My only concern (and minor) might have to do with memory resources, but frankly it has not been an issue yet.

Return on Investment

LogMeIn Pro

  • Affordable financial investment for a huge return: remote user access. Much more financially accessible for a smaller company, in comparison to more traditional VPN services.
Danielle Vink | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Fusion

  • Being less expensive than the competition, it has enabled us to deploy more computers for our students
  • It has reduced the effort to manage and update that our IT staff have to exert to keep the systems up-to-date
  • It has provided our students with a great learning environment that is flexible and allows for fine control of resource utilization
