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

TeamViewer

I would definitely recommend TeamViewer to my colleagues as it's a kind of tool that I have been using for decades and it always does the job well. The added options are a cherry on top. Group voice and screen sharing and control is not supported. So definitely it doesn't work in this case.

TeamViewer

  • TeamViewer is very difficult to set up initially when trying to set up a permanent remote connection. It requires several steps that have to be done just right, or else it won't work, and doesn't give any indication of why it won't work.
  • TeamViewer is slow to make the initial connection.
  • Compared to other remote support products we use, TeamViewer lacks several features, such as the ability to see detailed information about a given computer without logging into the computer.

    TeamViewer

    TeamViewer is everything we're looking for in a support tool, the cost for the tool is negligible with the value we receive from the tool. TeamViewer has saved us many times and continues to provide functionality and support for our devices like we haven't seen before in other tools. The ability to use TeamViewer quick connect provides efficient and non-technical ways for our non-tech-savvy end-users to get the assistance that they need while IT has the visibility and control over all of its' computer assets.

    TeamViewer

    Although the program is simple to operate on its own, determining how simple it is to use TeamViewer is extremely subjective and dependent on the particular use case. The transfer of files is also supported, and the company boasts that its transfer rate is far faster than that of any of its rivals. On-the-fly compression, which was a feature exclusive to TeamViewer, was responsible for this accomplishment.

    TeamViewer

    I was able to talk to sales about our problem (of being charged for an additional year subscription when we had asked to cancel), and Sales and I had a nice conversation. But when I contacted TeamViewer Support by email to request that our subscription be canceled, they very "nicely" told me by email that I should have read the "fine print". And that they can "Automatically Renew" a subscription for a year if they do not receive a cancellation request a month before the expiration of the current subscription. (When I called Support, I was put on hold; and I held, and held, and held, etc.) Admittedly, part of the problem was mine. I sent in my cancellation request after the deadline that TeamViewer outlines in their "fine print". But, I still feel that TeamViewer could have or should have a policy of refunding at least a large percentage of the "Automatic Renewal" charge, especially if the customer is not utilizing the subscription.

    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

    Alternatives Considered

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

    TeamViewer

    TeamViewer is a great tool with a well-respected name and a foundation of trust with advanced and intermediate users. We used to have BeyondTrust (Bomgar) in our office and it provided equivalent feature sets but had a dated appearance. Performance with both products is exceptional, and we could only ask for TeamViewer to have a mandatory recording feature.

    TeamViewer

    • Since I started using TeamViewer, the number of times I have to visit clients to update our programs on the PC has been visibly reduced, which is very helpful.
    • TeamViewer not only improves work efficiency and productivity, but also contributes to work-life balance and, above all, to fast customer service.
    • It is also recommended for system administrators who cover several offices with a small number.
