Overall Satisfaction

Our organization in my previous role, mostly used LogMeIn Rescue to support the various university departments. It allowed us technicians to easily remote-in and assist any user who is having issues. The biggest advantage for our use was we could remote to a client who was off-campus. Those clients who are recruiters for the university, often went without support beforehand. Now they are given full support.
  • Remote assistance without the worry of port security on user computers.
  • Practically no learning curve.
  • They include features such as chat and file transfer.
  • Connections were not always reliable.
  • Remote support on mobile devices.
  • Reaching to clients who are off-campus.
  • Very easy to learn from the technician standpoint.
  • Client learning curve to download the file and run it.
  • RealVNC,Windows RDP
While Windows RDP and RealVNC are easier to use from a technician standpoint, they potentially could leave security holes within your network infrastructure. LogMeIn Rescue provides the security and ease of use to provide clients the support they need.
Being that I no longer work as a technician, I cannot give a definite answer. If I still worked as a technician, I would definitely urge my supervisor to renew the use of LogMeIn Rescue. Once implemented and fine tuned, it is a reliable product.
For a large university with many departments in other buildings and recruiters that are off-campus, LogMeIn Rescue really is a quality product to use. While nothing beats an in-person visit, LogMeIn Rescue is a great solution for quick fixes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has off-campus clients.
