In situations in which you have high-end, up-to-date hardware systems, Take Control will thrive. Using the software on older system, or clients that do not wish to update to current OS/hardware, Take Control will suffer.

If you need unattended remote access, you will need one of the paid plans, so for a quick always on remote support option, [ShowMyPC] may not be the best suited. If security is an issue and your client's compliance rules won't allow always on remote access, then ShowMyPC is probably the best on-[the]-fly remote access on the market. On demand access is always free and can be done via browser or via a very small client download.

      Take Control can be accessed through a browser whereas Windows Remote Desktop requires settings on the PC and device to remote into the end device. Installing the end devices application has mostly been a flawless install with limited setting configurations. GoToMyPC has often required a reboot of the end device in order to get it working.

      ShowMyPC lags behind its competition when it comes to usability and smoothness in operations, its UI on the web is complicated and seems out of place. The high point of this product is its customer service provided through chat support for any issues which is instant. The product also lacks integration with rd party CSPs for file sharing and it does not have a MAC client which works against it.

      Return on Investment

      N-able

      • Looks professional and the ease of addressing issues raised by the RMM gives clients confidence in me as their provider.
      • Managed Service clients tend to appreciate minimal work interruption, so quick connections that don't require user interaction is great.

      • The on-demand access is free - can't get a better ROI than that
      • Plans are relatively inexpensive - as long as you are not managing large amounts of devices
      • Having a go to remote access solution that enables clients to control access is priceless
