Overall Satisfaction with DameWare Remote Support

We've been using DameWare for remote desktop support for a number of years in the IT department. We needed something that would allow us to log into remote machines when the user wasn't there or was having trouble logging in themselves. Traditional Remote Desktop or Lync/Skype screen-sharing didn't provide this functionality.
  • The ability to remote into systems without the user needing to be present is extremely helpful.
  • It occasionally fails to install/uninstall the service from the remote workstation
  • Increased efficiency and productivity of IT support staff.
  • Bomgar Remote Support Software,microsoft remote desktop
Bomgar seems to have similar feature sets and abilities as DameWare, but was a little too pricey when we were looking. DameWare absolutely blows traditional RDP out of the water.
The ability to remotely install the DameWare service, and remote into the workstation without the user needing to sit in front of the workstation is a tremendously helpful feature.
