While at the office, I needed documents from my home PC. I was able to use the browser at the office to access my home PC, grab the document and download it. You can also browse the web from work via your home PC, if you know what I mean. Framerates are great, so it felt natural the whole time. Also the app works on Android without any issues

If multiple sets of credentials and User Directories are involved across the servers you're connecting to, this is a huge help in organizing them all and managing changes over time. Having multiple concurrent server connections in tabs instead of separate windows is also much more convenient. While we're only using RDP, there are multiple connection methods to facilitate a mixed environment.

Cons
IDrive
  • It would be good if the software can display the status of the remote computer, such as whether it is in an active session, in the login screen.
  • No disable for RemotePC Host without knowing the password.

  • I'd like to be able to tag computers by criteria (ie location, function, etc) then be able to sort them in the left-hand pane.

I still find value in this tool. If I needed to increase computers supported, I would need to revaluate pricing concerns.

Although TeamViewer stands as the top product for remote support, the same goes for its pricing. A small business like ours wouldn't be able to afford software like TeamViewer and we would never be using most of its features. On the other end, Splashtop is an affordable option, but its deployment is a little too complicated. RemotePC was our choice, with an easy deployment process and a pricing program that's easy to understand and within our budget.

ASG-Remote is very flexible and with so many options available it makes the configuration you want for your setup super simple. Other products do not offer the extra features for database and reporting. As well, it offers all the connection types you can possibly think of. The ability to automate tasks for regular servers and workstations is amazing!
