mRemoteNG

Well suited to environments where IT staff need to access multiple servers/systems at the same time, cutting down on time wasted opening multiple windows.Not so useful for users that only need to access one system remotely, as most of its functions are largely unused in that case.

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

mRemoteNG

  • Tabbed Views. Each server remote desktop is viewed in its own separate tab, similar to a web browser. This makes it much quicker and easier to switch between them than using separate windows.
  • Storing credentials. You can configure it with log on credentials for each system, saving time on accessing as you don't need to enter a password each time.
  • Multiple connection types. I use the traditional RDP the most, but mRemoteNG allows many different connection types, similar to Putty.

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

mRemoteNG

  • The user interface for configuration is a little basic, and not obvious for a new user to set up connections. It could be a bit clearer how to do that.
  • It does not seem to automatically update itself to new versions - though older ones work fine, you can miss out on some new functions if you don't check for updates manually.

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

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

Never actually needed to use support so have no idea - honestly it's simple enough to use I'd be surprised if anyone really needs support with it.

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

mRemoteNG

mRemoteNG is far more useful than LogMeIn when on the same network, or VPN as the servers, as it allows multiple server screens open in multiple tabs. LogMeIn is much more useful when working out of the office for its ability to connect anywhere, but each system accessed is in a separate window making navigation a little tricky. Sometimes I use them in tandem however, LogMeIn to access a machine in my network, then mRemoteNG to access multiple machines from there!

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

mRemoteNG

  • Unquantifiable, really. It has definitely saved me time, and while each day it might not be much, over the course of a year I'm sure it has made an impact to my productivity level overall.

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.
