NinjaOne has been amazing in getting patching done. What has put it above and beyond though is its scripting. It natively works with batch, powershell, and shellscript. This means custom scripting is simple and fast. Some times, especially with shellscripts, they do not run properly but in comes direct access to the different tools from the computer screen. Being able to connect to a system using powershell, CMD, or Shell means you can directly input commands and not rely on a script for those one off issues.

It is very easy to use if the remote device is already set up to receive connections, so if you are setting up devices before deploying them, it is a great tool to have. It is well-suited to use when shadowing users or using it as a teaching tool. There are other products that are better if you are trying to help someone on a one-use basis.

Read full review VNC Connect does an excellent job in remotely connecting to a computer through either your local area network or even another computer on the internet. As long as the VNC Connect services is installed and the client is running in the background. VNC Connect provides password protection to prevent unauthorized users from attempting to remotely access your computer. There's an option to have a separate password to remotely view vs view & access a computer. You can even add an additional level of security by turning on the feature to require Windows login credentials. VNC Connect provides an additional set of controls after a remote connection has been established with another computer. You can have special keystrokes like Ctrl+Alt+Del sent as a command sequence to the other computer as well as access more than a single screen when in use at the remote computer location. Read full review Cons NinjaOne does support Mac, however I would like to have more options for automation and scheduled task on Mac devices. I would like it if NinjaOne also provided an MDM solution. It would be nice is NinjaOne could integrate a PAM solution as well. Read full review Its a pretty straight forward product - I would like to see more tools with a "wow" factor. Panel colors are blah - I would like more eye-catching colors. A more consistent look with all platforms - like Mac & PC. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
VNC is a solid product for the price. It simply works and its reliable across different platforms. Some products state they work well in the Mac environment but don't deliver. This one does what it says. Connections are reliable, but of course, this depends on internet connections. The product works well over wireless connections as well. It delivers on what a remote tool should deliver on. My technicians are happy with the product and customers appreciate the ease of use when letting us connect to their systems. Some also appreciate the remote support while they are multi-task.
Read full review Usability
Ninja's interface is clean and simple. Overall usability from an interface perspective is good. Some items, policies and scripting for instance, are a bit cumbersome and it's really not clear how to implement with a best practice mind-site. Ninja RMM got the job done for us but as we pushed our needs more into automation and efficiency we felt it wasn't keeping up with our speed of growth. There is definitely usability in the product, and it will get the job done, but there are other RMM's out there that fit better in our business.

VNC Connect is a solid product and our techs are very confident that they can get the job done using it. Reliability is key for us since we have a small support team and many users to support. It also helps keep us in the background more allowing the end-users to multi-task. VNC supports our goal of providing quick and efficient services.

Support has been very responsive and my account rep Brian K. has communicated with me continuously making sure we had everything we need. Not like other MDMs where they sign you up and that's the last you hear from them. NinjaOne makes sure you use the product to its best application and you are successful and continue as the product features grow.

VNC Connect is a reliable product that has been around for a long time. It is reasonably priced and works well in the Mac & PC environment. When you have a small team that supports many users we need tools that we can rely upon and that will get the job done on the first try. Many customers appreciate the quick assistance and can multi-task while our team works on their computer issues remotely. From a customer service point of view, this tool gives us transparency and efficient effectiveness.

The training is very informative, quick and to the point. All of the details one would need are present so the user doesn't have to go searching for additional information just to use the application. The layout of the training was also neat and concise, some of the other training sessions for other companies I've done in the past were confusing and not well thought out, this one is much more superior

NinjaRMM was easier to work with, better on price, and had less complicated software. Install was simple and use is a breeze. All the other vendors cost more and didn't have everything I wanted all in one place. Also, I like to support local companies when possible or at least work with companies in the same time zone, which they are both.

VNC is light and sleek with the quick setup, was impressed with the quick setup despite poor Internet connection outdoor.
is good, but the pricing is not as good as VNC. Both do the basic job, but VNC still outperform
in terms of performance and ease of use.
Read full review Return on Investment Pos - Ninja has replaced 3 other software we used for monitoring, Remote Access Pos - Have deployed ticketing to end users for better tracking of issues Neg - Nothing bad about ninja but our teams workload has increased to take care of ticket tracking - Read full review I have just used the software for about 1 month and so far so god. I am saving time whenever I can access my client's computers from my desk as opposed to having to leave my office to go to their offices. Saves me time and the client money.
