Overall Satisfaction with BeyondTrust Remote Support (formerly Bomgar Remote Support)

We use Bomgar in the ICT department to take control of various corporate PC's across the campus and at remote campuses to reduce the need for desk side visits.
  • Brings many remote support tools into one location making it easier to use for for both our less experienced technicians and our technical experts.
  • The reporting features of Bomgar, in particular session recording is a great tool to record complex issues.
  • Canned Scripts are excellent for reducing the time to deploy various utilities and software.
  • I would like to see the ability for individual canned scripts to be able to use more than one resource file.
  • I would like to see a 'wysiwyg' editor for the Public Site Web Template (in addition to the html editor).
  • I would like to have more space for canned script resource files.
  • As of yet, we have not completed a ROI review.
Not only is the product great, so it's the after sales service and support!
The support from BeyondTrust is excellent.
The obvious use for this product is to take over control of a remote computer to investigate issues and/or to train clients on how to use various software but the other utilities built into Bomgar should not be over looked. As an example, we can remotely check various resources of a PC when a request comes in for demanding software (such as molecular modeling software) to ensure the PC in question is of sufficient specification.

Yes - I haven't used the mobile interface often, maybe two or three times when my own PC had crashed - I found it really easy and intuitive to use.
