LogMeIn Rescue from the company LogMeIn in Boston, MA is remote administration software for IT management and support.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/i0/zi/4BZ9VSZ1DI3O.JPEGHow LogMeIn Rescue has made our company betterWe are an IT consulting company and use it to remotely access client workstations and servers. It allows us to handle many troubleshooting scenarios remotely rather than traveling on site. The Rescue Agent is great for installing updates and being able to work on a remote computer without requiring the end user to be at their desk.,Unattended Remote Access. Quickly get a new user/computer to connect. We typically use the 6 digit code method and direct users to logmein123.com. Gather statistics on a remote computer such as services installed and running, disk space, and other metrics.,Better support for servers with unattended access. The unattended access works well, but occasionally will get disabled or uninstalled on servers and needs to be reconfigured.,10,Having a remote access tool we can trust allows us to spend less time traveling to clients. This is a cost savings in travel expense and time. The time saved on traveling can be spent doing productive work.,10,10,TeamViewer, GoToMyPC, Join.me and Chrome Remote Desktop,Visual Studio IDE, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Office 365Excellent Remote ApplicationThe software allows us to easily connect with users that are not nearby or close enough for us to quickly access them in order to provide support. Since our business has multiple locations LogMeIn rescue makes it simple to connect with all of our users in a quick and efficient manner.,Quickly connect to the user with minimal wait time. Simple interface, easy to understand and navigate.,The initial download for the user can be confusing when it comes to downloading and running the applet. It can vary across platforms such as MAC vs PC.,10,LogMeIn has increased the number of users we can help during a single business day. LogMeIn has allowed us to decrease the total number of open tickets.,10,10,TeamViewer,TeamViewerLove LogMeIn Rescue - Saves me money & timeWe use it to remotely log in with customers and help them over the phone. Our entire company uses the program.,Remains connected on logout/safe mode/reboot very well. File Transfer works flawlessly. Working with multiple computers at once works great.,Would love to see a way to mirror multiple screens better. For example, we log in to a customer that has 2 screens and we have two screens on our workstation. I would like to see both screens at the same time in full-screen mode (this is very common). Would like the ability to save the "Computers" that we have unattended access to.,9,Helps save us a lot of money traveling to a customer site to fix an issue that can easily be done over the phone, mostly saving our techs time to drive there and the cost of gas. Each time we can avoid going to the site, it saves us at least an hour travel time ($89) and the cost of gas (roughly $10).,9,9,TeamViewer,MalwarebytesRescue has been a business saver!LogMeIn Rescue is being used every day in our business to support our clients in their computer and security needs.,File Transfer - simple and fast. Unattended access - simple to set up, just works, and is less hassle to clients as they don't have to walk through the connection process for repeat sessions. Screen capture - a great tool to save errors, etc. You can save these in client records for history/billing purposes. History/Notes - helpful for billing purposes. Can also be saved in client records for historical lookups.,Unattended access service seems to fail and/or not start at times. After Windows updates, sometimes remote session does not reconnect after rebooting to install updates. Sometimes a session that is having trouble connecting will get "stuck" in the session list showing "connecting" and there is nothing you can do to end it or try to restart it.,10,LogMeIn Rescue has had a very positive impact on our business. It has allowed me to grow my business from an "in-home" part-time tech support business to a full time business. We can manage multiple clients at a time, put sessions on hold that we are waiting on, and still take on new sessions at the same time.,9,10,Zendesk,Microsoft Office 365, QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Avast CloudCareGreat Remote ToolI use LogMeIn Rescue every day to support clients, update software and troubleshoot issues on Windows PCs. I update my database software remotely for customers. I troubleshoot a variety of problems from resetting passwords to installing and uninstalling software to running malware scans. I support Windows servers for several customers including managing users, rights and updating software.,One of my favorite features in unattended access. Particularly for servers this feature allows me to keep updates and policies current without disrupting customers daily use. As long as my customers have good internet, copying files back and forth to troubleshoot data problems is a snap. When I need to roll out updates I can make changes once and update multiple computers quickly.,I wish Windows server access didn't require entering a password multiple times. Troubleshooting hardware problems is more difficult than it should be. I work a lot with dot matrix printers, it would be nice to be able to update printer settings remotely. This is a joke because you need to touch the printer to change firmware settings.,10,LogMeIn Rescue works better for me than some of the other products I've tried. It is a little more expensive, but more efficient.,10,5,,Trend Micro Network Defense, Amazon Web Services, iMagic Inventory SoftwareRescue Lens Remote Diagnostic Can Be UsefulWe use Rescue to help with peer to peer challenges at customer sites as well as direct customer assistance. This usage is within the Material Science division of our company.,It is difficult to describe certain things... How tight a screw is for example. When using Rescue you can see what is being done and respond as it is observed... Preventing costly errors or hazards.,It is unfortunate to need to be at my PC in order to initialize a call. Peer to peer should not require call data so direct to device from device should be considered,7,I am not on the business end of the process. I do not know.,TeamViewer,TeamViewerI Recommend LogMeInWe use LogMeIn to support users who are remotely based for IT issues.,Remote access from any machine to any machine with internet connectivity. Unattended access. Team collaboration.,Running the app is a bit slow at times,9,The majority of our IT issues can be resolved remotely without a local presence.,10,10,LogMeIn Rescue ReviewRemote support for INSITE software.,Accessibility. File management. Good screen resolution.,Speed in connecting. Applet retrieval to patch thru. Chat box remaining live and accessible after a reboot occurs.,10,No idea - I don't deal with any financial aspects of our company.,It gets the job doneWe use it here in IT to troubleshoot any and every issue with anything. Other depts such as HR use it to troubleshoot or show how-to's for specific software,Easy for end users to start a session Easy to gather basic system info with 2 clicks Unattended access/ requesting credentials so the user can go about their day while we work on it,Might be on our end but sometimes the UAC appears to be 'turned up' and there are UAC pop ups that the end user can see, but not on this end. Kind of annoying when you're using the chat and then request system info and the whole chat window fills up with gobbledy gook.,10,No negative impact that I know of. Positive- intuitive and no training required.,Zendesk, Slack, Microsoft TeamsGreat remote management without the hurdles other products presentAs far as I am aware, we use LogMeIn for most of our IT Operations. We use it primarily to support end users that are remote. This includes any type of troubleshooting we may need to perform from email issues, application support and troubleshooting, OS updgrades, software installation, file shares and web application support. This is our primary tool for anything we may not be able to do in person. I would say I use this product at least a couple times a day.,Easy to use with our end users. Setting up the connection is relatively simple for the most part. Doesnt seem to be a whole lot of lag, except when connecting to users that are on a VPN. (Expected behavior) The file transfer tool is really easy to use and its only failed a couple of times.,Seems some functionality is removed from the OS when connecting. We sometimes have troubles performing software installations The connection will sometimes drop mid session and we have to create a new one and reconnect Adding other technicians mid session doesnt always work and sometimes causes the connection to fail,8,As I dont know what the cost is per license, I cant necessarily speak to the actual ROI. This product does make our jobs much easier. Without this tool, we would have to have users send their machines to us for troubleshooting. This tool makes our user experience much smoother.,SolarWinds Access Rights Manager, Avast Managed Workplace RMM, TeamViewer, Kaseya IT Center and ConnectWise Control (formerly ScreenConnect)Good product with potential to be great!!Our company has recently switched to using LogMeIn Rescue to provide support to our customer base with their technical issues. The entire Technical and application support personnel are using it. The major advantage of LogMeIn is that it provides multi monitor support as well as reconnection after a remote reboot without going through the authorization procedure done in the beginning. The customers being served are also satisfied knowing that they give the authority to access their system to only known people by acknowledging it at each instance.,The customer at the other end is in control of giving access to their system. It is not a free anytime access to their system even if you have connected before. The technician, after getting access, can switch between monitors on the remote system to access windows popping in different monitors. You can perform a remote reboot and still connect without the customer intervention once the authorization has been given. This is helpful when you are doing a remote software installation that requires multiple system reboot. You can get the remote system configuration information without invoking the command window on their side.,The most important feature that is missing is its ability to schedule a meeting ahead of time and integrating it with the office mail systems. Their is no integration of voice so you have to resort to other calling app or phone to have a verbal interaction with the client. In some cases it would be nice to set up a secured unattended remote access feature. This is particularly useful in big organizations where the remote systems are not always accessible quickly by the clients. So, if a mutually agreed secure link will help.,7,Good level of access to remote systems Some customers still don't trust LogMeIn completely and hence it cannot be used Cannot schedule the meetings which is a bit annoying.,Zoom, Skype for Business (formerly Lync) and TeamViewer,Skype for Business (formerly Lync), Zoom, TeamViewerLogMeIn Rescue: does one thing and does it really well.We use LogMeIn Rescue (LMI) to provide remote support to customers. The customer would call in and, if required, the Service Desk Analyst would use LogMeIn to remotely take control of the customer's computer and troubleshoot remotely. This means that most of the issues could be resolved quickly and remotely, before a technician could even physically get to the customer.LogMeIn is in a pretty crowded space, as there are many tools out there that do similar things. However, I consider LogMeIn to be a full feature remote support tool because it has a lot of strong features, such as:Granular backend administration console.Transfer session between technicians.Share session between technicians.Restart and resume control without any further customer intervention.Control of mobile devices.,It's easy to guide the customer to set up the initial connection. Transfer/share control between technicians. It's a very good built-in tool to administer account permission and license. It's trouble-free, and works as it is supposed to. We never spent any effort to troubleshoot or fix anything. The tool is pretty much set and forget. Strong administration features: Email alerting for when you are running out of concurrent license. Useful reporting usage statistics.,The tool works so well so it is very hard to identify an area that could improve significantly. One area could be how licensing is counted. Maybe count license usage based on the number of concurrent remote control session instead of the number of technicians currently logged in. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you have a lot of technicians, they could all sign in and hold up licenses without actually using any remote control sessions.,9,The tool has a concurrent licensing module, so it is very flexible, and that combined with usage statistics reporting allows you to get the right amount of licenses for your needs. We have other tools with some overlapping capabilities like NCentral which we can use to do remote support. However, NCentral requires an agent to be already installed on the user's machine, and that is not always the case. So LogMeIn is a good catch-all tool to ensure that you will also be able to provide remote support.,10,9,TeamViewer and SolarWinds N-central,SolarWinds N-central, Mikogo, TeamViewerWe have been rescued by LogMeIn Rescue, why you should too!We use the software to remotely access and support offices' technical issues. It is currently used in our Technical Support department, but we are slowly adding users from other departments. It allows us to assist our offices much easier than previously used products, and integration with our chat-based support solution is a big bonus.,Easy to use, both by support technicians and end-users, to get connected. As our end users are not typically well-versed when it comes to technology, the easier we can get remoted in and helping, the better. On a similar point, the Calling Card feature is excellent. It allows an already simple process for connecting to remote users to be even easier. Reporting: Very granular reporting on all usage aspects of the software. Great for keeping tabs on exactly how the software is being used, as well as survey results for support sessions.,More integration with newer chat products offered from LogMeIn would be helpful. The calling card feature currently only allows one setup to be deployed. Adding the ability to setup different Calling Cards could be helpful across our business.,10,Increased efficiency due to chat integration. Increased efficiency due to less time fighting to get the remote access to work as we had with our previous software.,10,10,Webex Support Center and SolarWinds MSP ManagerLogMeIn Rescue makes us efficient and is fast and flexibleWe use Rescue within our entire company, although certain users use it more frequently than others. When we're on the phone with one of our reps, sometimes it helps to remotely access their PC or Mac, to fix it for them, or to do some training. Years ago, I created our own calling card and we leave that on some remote machines when we determine that they will possibly need frequent assistance.,Conserving bandwidth by being able to switch to lower color bit depth or grayscale or B&W. They can really help to get the remote session in a useable state when the remote Internet connection is bandwidth strained. Rescue has the flexibility to be able to connect quickly to a computer when you don't need admin rights, or it can switch to a background service to get admin rights when we need to help fix some Windows issues. Rescue makes it easy to transfer a connected remote session to another user of Rescue. That is very helpful at times.,It would be great if Rescue was able to install a calling card on a Macintosh computer. Frequently when I open Rescue, I need to adjust the size of the different areas by dragging the horizontal or vertical sliders. Seems that Rescue doesn't remember how I like to have the window set up. I like dark mode and would love it if they made the whole Rescue window work with that. Currently, only certain parts of the Rescue window are using dark mode.,9,We try to keep phone calls as short as possible, mainly because if we can remotely connect and help the caller quickly, then they tend to end up pleased. If we didn't remotely connect and just talked them through what they need to do on their computer- which I did for many, many years before we obtained Rescue- then the caller can sometimes get tense or frustrated. Having multiple Rescue licenses is helpful, especially at a time where we are getting many calls about some problem. Rescue makes its users more efficient.,8,10,GoToMyPC,Microsoft Office 365LogMeIn has never LetMeDown 10/10My company's customer support department uses LogMeIn to assist callers with questions or issues, To record or capture images errors or bugs, to provide intro education to new customers. It is also used by my department to provide support to our remote employees if they have any issues or the need to install any new software. Management also uses the monitoring function to confirm the customer support staff is following correct protocols when logging in with customers.,LogMeIn effectively allows me as IT professional to take control with administrative rights and perform maintenance remotely. LogMeIn has a quick and easy to use file transfer functionality making it easy for our company to provide training materials and reference documents well on a call with customers. LogMeIn has reliable and trustworthy security in place allowing for my company to safely use it for our work that heavily involves sensitive information.,The only con I have is regarding the video recordings, they are either not in real time or have a low frame rate. The result is what appears to be a slightly sped up recording. This has never resulted any setbacks, only momentary confusion for some reviews of reporting of bugs.,10,Constantly easy to use tool allows for our company to handle calls more effectively, increasing our one call resolutions significantly.,10,10,,Remote Desktop Manager, Microsoft 365 Business,60Good tool overall for remote supportThis product is used by IT support for remote support of in-office and remote users.,Easy to start up for the users Quick, reliable connections Able to take admin control easily and quickly Can control all monitors Multiple methods of remote access (pin code, email, url link) Able to create unattended access for long remote sessions or sessions that take place on multiple days Good file transfer system,Sometimes connection drops and reconnects Connection emails are sometimes slow Admin control for business may require sharing admin credentials with customer File transfer requires admin control to initiate,7,We are able to have a centralized help desk for country-wide support Issues are solved faster with remote support vs deskside or having to ship computers Able to clear more tickets in a short amount of time Able to help multiple customers if needed,8,10LogMeIn is an excellent support tool, use it or work harder.I provide tech support services to a wide range of companies and people within these companies. I connect using LogMeIn to fix computer issues, show people how to do things, reset passwords, and configure programs and OS from Win/Apple machines to mobiles devices using LogMeIn. We use to connect using a different program but ever since we switched to LogMeIn, my job is easier because LogMeIn is quite stable; we reboot the remote machine and reconnect right back to the customer's computer. It has no problem connecting to remote systems with multiple monitors, as I can see all screens or one by one. LogMeIn is a must-have tool for tech support.,Reboot the remote computer and reconnect without having to do the PCI compliance again. Time saving. Able to send remote commands to restart in normal mode or safe mode. In uneven or slow connections, LogMeIn adjusts and the connection is as smooth as if I was at the customer's computer. Very stable. Able to have more than one session at a time.,Connection to some mobile devices is not as solid as connections to a Windows machine. The screen resolution when connecting to a mobile phone (mostly apple) could be smoother. At this time we are using IE only, not able to use Google Chrome.,10,Depending on the customer's technical level, connecting to a remote machine is so much better than walking them through computer changes. For some low-level technical people, even opening a browser and typing 123rescue.com is a challenge. A one icon integration with Win/Apple might be helpful.,,Citrix ShareFile Virtual Data Room, Cisco SSL VPN (AnyConnect), FileZilla,Yes,10A very good product with a high ongoing maintenance cost.As support personnel, we use LogMeIn Rescue in a two-fold capacity. We support users who are off of our LAN or WAN and we also support users on our network. Those off the network are supported by having them go to Logmein123.com and we generate a key for them to input into the form. For those on the LAN or WAN, we connect directly to their machine via the Connect on LAN feature.,Ability to connect to computers not on your internal network. Ability to start up sessions from multiple connection methods such as PIN Codes, email Links or links copied to clipboard. Ability to connect directly to computers on LAN without any user interaction.,I may be mistaken and this may no longer happen but the last time I searched for this I could not find a way for a support person to disconnect from a workstation on the LAN without it locking the workstation. Pricing model is very expensive. Product in general is very expensive to use.,7,Positive view from users. Having support personnel control their computers remotely is almost mandatory essential these days. Management views the product as a very pricey cost of supporting users.,Dameware Remote Support, Join.me and Webex Support Center,Dameware Remote Support, Webex Support CenterGreat remote support software provides users with a robust tool kit and is a favorite solution of our teamLogMeIn Rescue is currently being used as a support tool for remote access troubleshooting of customer reported issues; assisting with system configuration changes, data or system migrations, or other tasks that require my team to view one or more customer tablets/laptops/desktops/servers.,Rebooting and reconnection to remote computer. Intuitive design and alerting functions while establishing a session. Simple connection process for customers to join a session.,Main console UI appears cluttered compared to similar solutions. Would like more customization for home screen, including which sections/items are displayed.

This software has taken our travel expenses down while allowing us the tools to work with end-users and endpoints effectively.,The ability to have scripts in the portal to quickly automate tasks. Built-in file transfer to allow for the flow of documents and files. This can either be used to push or pull these files and allows our team to have the ability to work with an end-user in a manner as if we were sitting at their endpoint. The ability to keep history and make notes on an endpoint to allow all techs visibility of items that have been worked on in the past.,We have used all aspects of LogMeIn Rescue and as of now, we have not seen a need for improvement.,10,LogMeIn Rescue has taken our expenses down from having to travel to the location. We can do almost anything from our IT department. The price of the subscription definitely paid for itself.,TeamViewer and VNC Connect,10,TeamViewer, VNC ConnectClass Is In "Remote-Session"LogMeIn Rescue is being used in 2 ways. One way is for staff from across all our sites to get help remotely on their computers. The other is for iOS devices in which once again, it enables users to seek help from the IT department when needed. When we made the switch to LogMeIn, myself and my co-worker tested it out by remoting into computers using calling cards to see how everything works in a real-world scenario.,Helps IT department work remotely to assist staff. Enables the use of sharing files seamlessly. Zero-lag interface.,When remoting to screen, I would like to see the screen of the desktop open up on a separate window.,10,It's saves Time on travel.

With file transfer and full remote control, we can do just about anything we need on our client's workstations.,LogMeIn is very easy for our clients to log in with and understand how to use. LogMeIn is quick and doesn't take too much time to connect to people's devices. LogMeIn works on more than just computers and will allow access to just about anything needed.,I don't particularly have a problem with any of its functionality, all issues are brought about by clients having slow internet.,9,The speed of connecting and the ability to do what I need on a client's computer without their assistance is crucial.,,GoToMeeting, RingCentral, Microsoft 365 BusinessLogMeIn Rescue is a good choiceIt is being used by our support team to connect to clients to fix IT-related issues.

Some of our employees use it in an unattended mode which allows them to access the client's servers when they need to for the duration of a project.,There is virtually no lag when using LogMeIn on a client's workstation. The "start as a service" feature is very helpful for using it while UAC is enabled. It typically requires fewer permissions to run on client workstations than other software.,Error logging can always be improved, like when a customer cannot connect to a session. In additional to error logging, many of my emails to the support address have not received a response.,10,I'm not entirely sure about this but I believe it has been positive because we are able to provide better customer service, which makes happy customers.,TeamViewer,GoToMeeting

  • Gather statistics on a remote computer such as services installed and running, disk space, and other metrics.
LogMeIn Rescue works great when providing technical support to end-users. We are a software consulting company that supports many end-users who are not always tech-savvy. I have used other remote access tools in the past which were cumbersome or complicated to get non-tech users to connect. LogMeIn Rescue works every time and is simple and easy to use.

When installing updates on remote computers, it can sometimes take several hours and you often need to restart the computer. The unattended access feature works great in allowing the end user to not need to be present at their desk while we do our work.

The software allows us to easily connect with users that are not nearby or close enough for us to quickly access them in order to provide support. Since our business has multiple locations LogMeIn rescue makes it simple to connect with all of our users in a quick and efficient manner.
  • Quickly connect to the user with minimal wait time.
  • Simple interface, easy to understand and navigate.
LogMeIn works great when we are not able to leave or if we need to multitask and work with a few users at a time. Remotely accessing these users is also very important and this is why LogMeIn is great in that aspect. I am able to fix nearly every issue encountered unless it's a hardware fix.

  • Remains connected on logout/safe mode/reboot very well.
  • File Transfer works flawlessly.
  • Working with multiple computers at once works great.
Great for accessing customer computers. I wish the process was a little simpler for customers. As of right now, they have to click on an Icon on our site, then OK to allow UAC, then OK again for connection and then OK again once we start it on our end. That's a lot.

LogMeIn Rescue is being used every day in our business to support our clients in their computer and security needs.
  • File Transfer - simple and fast.
  • Unattended access - simple to set up, just works, and is less hassle to clients as they don't have to walk through the connection process for repeat sessions.
  • Screen capture - a great tool to save errors, etc. You can save these in client records for history/billing purposes.
  • History/Notes - helpful for billing purposes. Can also be saved in client records for historical lookups.
It is very well suited to supporting end users and business users in computer issues, updates, and any software related problems. Even hardware updates can be done in most cases, and the session reconnects fairly well. It's less appropriate on a smaller scale such as a small office that wants to access work PC's from home.

I often work with tech support at another vendor while accessing a client's system. This usually works very well. Troubleshooting network issues while accessing multiple computers at the same time works well. LogMeIn Rescue does not work well when trying to diagnose printer issues.

We use Rescue to help with peer to peer challenges at customer sites as well as direct customer assistance. This usage is within the Material Science division of our company.
  • It is difficult to describe certain things... How tight a screw is for example. When using Rescue you can see what is being done and respond as it is observed... Preventing costly errors or hazards.
Rescue is great in instances where you can 'sit down' to help a colleague or customer as it helps you to 'see what they see'. It is not useful or easy to deploy when you are busy on your own machine and your colleague needs a 'quick' look from you for guidance... which is often the case for me unfortunately.

We use LogMeIn to support users who are remotely based for IT issues.
  • Remote access from any machine to any machine with internet connectivity.
  • Unattended access.
  • Team collaboration.
LogMeIn is highly recommended as I worked for a couple of global companies and it has been used in the majority of those companies.

We use it here in IT to troubleshoot any and every issue with anything. Other depts such as HR use it to troubleshoot or show how-to's for specific software
  • Easy for end users to start a session
  • Easy to gather basic system info with 2 clicks
  • Unattended access/ requesting credentials so the user can go about their day while we work on it
It works with any windows 7-10 desktop/ laptop. We tried shadowing an iPad a time or two - it did not work very well at all.

This is our primary tool for anything we may not be able to do in person. I would say I use this product at least a couple times a day.
  • Easy to use with our end users. Setting up the connection is relatively simple for the most part.
  • Doesnt seem to be a whole lot of lag, except when connecting to users that are on a VPN. (Expected behavior)
  • The file transfer tool is really easy to use and its only failed a couple of times.
For the most part LogMeIn works as it should for basic troubleshooting. With application support, it gets a bit more tricky. Sometimes functionality is lost when trying to do things that are more involved such as registry changes or application install. I'm sure these things are to be expected with tools like this and doesn't necessarily make it a bad product.

Our company has recently switched to using LogMeIn Rescue to provide support to our customer base with their technical issues. The entire Technical and application support personnel are using it. The major advantage of LogMeIn is that it provides multi monitor support as well as reconnection after a remote reboot without going through the authorization procedure done in the beginning. The customers being served are also satisfied knowing that they give the authority to access their system to only known people by acknowledging it at each instance.
  • The customer at the other end is in control of giving access to their system. It is not a free anytime access to their system even if you have connected before.
  • The technician, after getting access, can switch between monitors on the remote system to access windows popping in different monitors.
  • You can perform a remote reboot and still connect without the customer intervention once the authorization has been given. This is helpful when you are doing a remote software installation that requires multiple system reboot.
  • You can get the remote system configuration information without invoking the command window on their side.
Situations where you need to reconnect with the remote system after a remote reboot, LogMeIn Rescue is very helpful. It helps both the parties by not tying up another computer through which you will have to otherwise do the remote control. LogMeIn Rescue becomes inconvenient when it cannot be scheduled for a future meeting and send reminders to both parties. Currently, we have to resort to other reminder systems or call to connect.

We use LogMeIn Rescue (LMI) to provide remote support to customers. The customer would call in and, if required, the Service Desk Analyst would use LogMeIn to remotely take control of the customer's computer and troubleshoot remotely. This means that most of the issues could be resolved quickly and remotely, before a technician could even physically get to the customer.
LogMeIn is in a pretty crowded space, as there are many tools out there that do similar things. However, I consider LogMeIn to be a full feature remote support tool because it has a lot of strong features, such as:
  • Granular backend administration console.
  • Transfer session between technicians.
  • Share session between technicians.
  • Restart and resume control without any further customer intervention.
  • Control of mobile devices.
  • It's easy to guide the customer to set up the initial connection.
  • Transfer/share control between technicians.
  • It's a very good built-in tool to administer account permission and license.
  • It's trouble-free, and works as it is supposed to. We never spent any effort to troubleshoot or fix anything. The tool is pretty much set and forget.
  • Strong administration features: Email alerting for when you are running out of concurrent license. Useful reporting usage statistics.
LogMeIn Rescue is a great tool for providing remote support on any major platform: windows, mac, android, etc... It is not meant to do anything else as far as I am aware, so it is not fair to consider other scenarios. Bottom line: it is a tool for remote support and it is great at it.

We use the software to remotely access and support offices' technical issues. It is currently used in our Technical Support department, but we are slowly adding users from other departments. It allows us to assist our offices much easier than previously used products, and integration with our chat-based support solution is a big bonus.
  • Easy to use, both by support technicians and end-users, to get connected. As our end users are not typically well-versed when it comes to technology, the easier we can get remoted in and helping, the better.
  • On a similar point, the Calling Card feature is excellent. It allows an already simple process for connecting to remote users to be even easier.
  • Reporting: Very granular reporting on all usage aspects of the software. Great for keeping tabs on exactly how the software is being used, as well as survey results for support sessions.
This is really a great tool if you need easy-to-use remote access to an end user's PC and provides very transparent access to the end-user. It does require interaction on the other end to start the session in most cases. Unattended access is available, but with limited setup options and not indefinitely without user input.

We use Rescue within our entire company, although certain users use it more frequently than others. When we're on the phone with one of our reps, sometimes it helps to remotely access their PC or Mac, to fix it for them, or to do some training. Years ago, I created our own calling card and we leave that on some remote machines when we determine that they will possibly need frequent assistance.
  • Conserving bandwidth by being able to switch to lower color bit depth or grayscale or B&W. They can really help to get the remote session in a useable state when the remote Internet connection is bandwidth strained.
  • Rescue has the flexibility to be able to connect quickly to a computer when you don't need admin rights, or it can switch to a background service to get admin rights when we need to help fix some Windows issues.
  • Rescue makes it easy to transfer a connected remote session to another user of Rescue. That is very helpful at times.
LogMeIn Rescue is well suited for connecting to a remote PC or Mac to do training or tech support. It is less appropriate to use it to do a webinar. Something like Join.me would be better for that. Rescue is also well suited to set up an unattended remote session or to transfer files back and forth.

My company's customer support department uses LogMeIn to assist callers with questions or issues, To record or capture images errors or bugs, to provide intro education to new customers. It is also used by my department to provide support to our remote employees if they have any issues or the need to install any new software. Management also uses the monitoring function to confirm the customer support staff is following correct protocols when logging in with customers.
  • LogMeIn effectively allows me as IT professional to take control with administrative rights and perform maintenance remotely.
  • LogMeIn has a quick and easy to use file transfer functionality making it easy for our company to provide training materials and reference documents well on a call with customers.
  • LogMeIn has reliable and trustworthy security in place allowing for my company to safely use it for our work that heavily involves sensitive information.
My company provides software for a very specific field and it is a requirement by the state government for this type of software to be used, as a result we have a large amount of customers who are not very technical and can not easily or clearly describe their issues. LogMeIn easily allows for our customer support representatives to establish a session and have the customers show them exactly what they are experiencing. Providing support with out the use of LogMeIn who be next to impossible.

This product is used by IT support for remote support of in-office and remote users.
  • Easy to start up for the users
  • Quick, reliable connections
  • Able to take admin control easily and quickly
  • Can control all monitors
  • Multiple methods of remote access (pin code, email, url link)
  • Able to create unattended access for long remote sessions or sessions that take place on multiple days
  • Good file transfer system
LogMeIn is a good tool for supporting remote customers. You are able to perform almost all troubleshooting steps remotely, though there are issues with needing to enter bios or troubleshoot sound that still require deskside support.

I provide tech support services to a wide range of companies and people within these companies. I connect using LogMeIn to fix computer issues, show people how to do things, reset passwords, and configure programs and OS from Win/Apple machines to mobiles devices using LogMeIn. We use to connect using a different program but ever since we switched to LogMeIn, my job is easier because LogMeIn is quite stable; we reboot the remote machine and reconnect right back to the customer's computer. It has no problem connecting to remote systems with multiple monitors, as I can see all screens or one by one. LogMeIn is a must-have tool for tech support.
  • Reboot the remote computer and reconnect without having to do the PCI compliance again. Time saving.
  • Able to send remote commands to restart in normal mode or safe mode.
  • In uneven or slow connections, LogMeIn adjusts and the connection is as smooth as if I was at the customer's computer.
  • Very stable.
  • Able to have more than one session at a time.
Taking control of a windows machine, once going pass PCI compliance, works really well. Sometimes the copy and paste does not work very well between the remote and my computer, specifically when doing screenshots

As support personnel, we use LogMeIn Rescue in a two-fold capacity. We support users who are off of our LAN or WAN and we also support users on our network. Those off the network are supported by having them go to Logmein123.com and we generate a key for them to input into the form. For those on the LAN or WAN, we connect directly to their machine via the Connect on LAN feature.
  • Ability to connect to computers not on your internal network.
  • Ability to start up sessions from multiple connection methods such as PIN Codes, email Links or links copied to clipboard.
  • Ability to connect directly to computers on LAN without any user interaction.
Well suited for larger departments or companies where budget is not much of an issue.

Less suited for smaller departments or companies where the budget is very tight.

LogMeIn Rescue is currently being used as a support tool for remote access troubleshooting of customer reported issues; assisting with system configuration changes, data or system migrations, or other tasks that require my team to view one or more customer tablets/laptops/desktops/servers.
  • Rebooting and reconnection to remote computer.
  • Intuitive design and alerting functions while establishing a session.
  • Simple connection process for customers to join a session.
I think LogMeIn Rescue is well suited for use with supporting customers that you need greater levels of access to their computers for system maintenance and support. It is helpful to be able to get around Windows User Access Control (UAC) limitations that other solutions can have issues with (loss of keyboard or mouse control in some applications). It is also adept for situations where you need to reboot the client's computer and remain connected to continue system maintenance.

We use LogMeIn Rescue across all of our companies. This software has taken our travel expenses down while allowing us the tools to work with end-users and endpoints effectively.
  • The ability to have scripts in the portal to quickly automate tasks.
  • Built-in file transfer to allow for the flow of documents and files. This can either be used to push or pull these files and allows our team to have the ability to work with an end-user in a manner as if we were sitting at their endpoint.
  • The ability to keep history and make notes on an endpoint to allow all techs visibility of items that have been worked on in the past.
LogMeIn Rescue allows for management to have an unlimited amount of endpoints to be managed and worked on from an IT staff. I could not even fathom doing this without LogMeIn Rescue.

LogMeIn Rescue is being used in 2 ways. One way is for staff from across all our sites to get help remotely on their computers. The other is for iOS devices in which once again, it enables users to seek help from the IT department when needed. When we made the switch to LogMeIn, myself and my co-worker tested it out by remoting into computers using calling cards to see how everything works in a real-world scenario.
  • Helps IT department work remotely to assist staff.
  • Enables the use of sharing files seamlessly.
  • Zero-lag interface.
A scenario that I experienced just last week: Our old subscription was canceled and I needed to remote to a staff computer to provide assistance. All I had to do was direct the staff to the LogMeIn website and download and run the program for me to remote it. It was as simple as can be. Loved it.

LogMeIn is used by our business to access our client's workstations to resolve issues for them that they are unable to describe. It allows us to work on the computer with the client without having to rely on the client's previous knowledge of computers. With file transfer and full remote control, we can do just about anything we need on our client's workstations.
  • LogMeIn is very easy for our clients to log in with and understand how to use.
  • LogMeIn is quick and doesn't take too much time to connect to people's devices.
  • LogMeIn works on more than just computers and will allow access to just about anything needed.
LogMeIn is really well suited for those who don't know how to use a computer very well. It's very straightforward and easy to use. I would say the only detriment that I see is that clients seem to think it's a bit scary sometimes to have someone controlling their computer for them, but I'm not sure what can be done on LogMeIn's side to help this as it seems like a personal issue.

It is being used by our support team to connect to clients to fix IT-related issues. We have an entire team that uses this product daily to provide these services and relies on it to do their job. We've found the tool invaluable in providing these services to our customers.
  • Remote access
  • Remote printing
  • Remote file sharing
We've found that LogMeIn Rescue is well suited in providing remote support to our clients end-users. Being able to access and control their desktops and transfer files and/or updates to their computers while in the session is very useful as well. We've been using the product for years and found it to be very reliable.

LogMeIn is currently used by my department to log into our customers' environments. We use this for troubleshooting software problems, transferring files, or installing software. Some of our employees use it in an unattended mode which allows them to access the client's servers when they need to for the duration of a project.
  • There is virtually no lag when using LogMeIn on a client's workstation.
  • The "start as a service" feature is very helpful for using it while UAC is enabled.
  • It typically requires fewer permissions to run on client workstations than other software.
I use LogMeIn whenever I can for troubleshooting. If I need to control a computer, it is fantastic for that purpose. It is quick and easy to use. However, if I need to present something, it is not the best. I can share my screen, but if I need demo something, I would use another software for that purpose.
