Overall Satisfaction with ConnectWise Control (formerly ScreenConnect)

ConnectWise is being used to remotely connect to clients' PCs/laptops in order to fix issues remotely. This is also used to connect to our servers and to check on them if issues arise. By using ConnectWise this stops us from having to send an engineer on site each time that there is an issue on the client's site.
  • It is easy for a client to get set up in a remote session.
  • Unattended access allows us to get connected to the servers without any interaction.
  • The presenter mode is good if you are wanting to talk a colleague through doing something.
  • Allow to you to elevate your permissions so that you are able to enter passwords for UAC
  • It allows us to fix issues a lot more quicker
  • It isn't too expensive for the amount of users that we have
A lot easier to use
SolarWinds Remote Monitoring & Management, Spiceworks, Microsoft Office 365
It is really easy for us to direct end users to the website and to set up the remote session in order for us to look at the issues that they are currently experiencing and because of this it allows us to fix issues a lot more quickly without going on site.
