Synmantec pcAnywhere is excellent when you require a secure remote connection, and you have enough computational power and internet bandwidth.

TeamViewer

The ability to organize and group remote accessible systems where the agent has been installed coupled with the ability to create customized applications containing the remote access agents that can be white label branded is very powerful. Links can be provided to clients that do not have the agent on their devices and they can quickly and easily install it. The areas where it struggles a bit is with the newer Mac operating systems given all the security barriers Apple has installed requiring the user to perform many complicated steps in order to allow access for TeamViewer, but that is not really a TeamViewer specific problem

Pros

Symantec pcAnywhere (Discontinued)

  • Multiple connections
  • Cross-platform
  • Decent UX
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamViewer

  • Whiteboard feature is super effective when we have to explain a problem or illustrate something to the user (both internal and external).
  • Ability to safely and securely connect with the customer system is a big plus. Since the product has been in existence for a really long time, this makes it easier for us to have customers use them without us having to convince them much
  • One great feature is the ability to drag and drop the files from one computer to another while helping someone solve a problem where we need one particular file, you don’t need to waste the time downloading it to his machine or emailing it over. If you have the file, you can copy it over with few clicks.

Cons

Symantec pcAnywhere (Discontinued)

  • Sometimes it is too slow
  • Consumes too much bandwidth
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamViewer

  • The software lacks many tools to control the versions of documents you work with during each session, either to review them in case you have lost some information in a past version and need to recover it, or to review changes to create comparisons between one version and another one.
  • The service does not handle contacts either, so you generally have to communicate with them from another platform even though it is in TeamViewer where the maintenance will take place and you have to waste more time even if you are urgent to start the work session.
  • TeamViewer does not have a calendar tool that allows you to make notes about the dates on which maintenance will be performed, or at least to record the dates so as not to cause confusion or organizational errors once the dates are approaching and you have forgotten these dates.

The CEO loves teamviewer and prefers it to logmein so I am sure he will request to renew it when it comes up for renewal. It has proven its worth to the CEO so he will be a lifetime fan of Teamviewer and will always want to keep his subscription active

I do not have complaints with the product. In fact, TeamViewer is used by some of our support companies (tech support, accounting, software, etc.), and it performs well. It is simply more product than we needed in our application, and more money than we can justify budgeting.

The support from the Teamviewer team has always been top notch. Any support ticket that we have submitted has been handled very quickly and with the best possible resolution. We find in most cases, contacting for a support ticket is not even necessary, as the knowledge base is more than adequate.

I have never used the online training either. I have watched a few informational videos that were helpful when learning how to do a specific procedure within TeamViewer and get the most out of the software by utilizing one of the many features that are available with the software. Again, 5 if for neutral.

Implementation was easy enough that it didn't pose any problems. Training was minimal and the system works right out of the box

[We chose Synamtec pcAnywhere because] its embedded both-direction encryption exceeds the industry requirements.

TeamViewer

Because the user can install it from a public site there is very little barrier for users to get remote help, combined with an increase of productivity due to the lack of travel and the costs associated it has been a good value for the company.I would say this is a good option if you are using this with a small team and a lot of end users spread across a large area.

Return on Investment

Symantec pcAnywhere (Discontinued)

  • It allows us to comply with the latest safe browsing requirements.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TeamViewer

  • Given that I use TeamViewer all day, every day, the ROI is hard to calculate--but the price is incredibly reasonable for what it does. In my opinion, it paid for itself in a week.
  • The business objective behind my use of TeamViewer is simple: the ability to handle all of my day-to-day tasks as if I were sitting at my desk when I am not.
