Overall Satisfaction with LogMeIn Rescue

During COVID-19, we have been using rescue exclusively for all remote support needs. It is used daily. Additionally, the customers that I consult with have all received LogMeIn Rescue recommendations for their businesses. My customers, school districts, health care, vacation rental services, retail, and the list goes on either to use Rescue to support their customers and/or, I use it to support them. It is a win/win for all of us.
  • Unattended access: I can fix problems when the end user isn't at their computer.
  • Multiple access methods: When you deal with customers of all technology backgrounds, having multiple ways of inviting them to a session is perfect.
  • Ease of use for the technician.
  • Rich feature set including the ability to reboot machines and automatically reconnect.
  • Interface: the interface is old and dated.
  • Setup is designed for IT professionals. Not really a drawback, unless you are looking for plug and play.
  • Advanced features are difficult to enable.
  • Without travel costs, I was able to recoup my investment in less than 3 months.
  • I am able to provide faster support to my customers without scheduling an onsite visit.
  • I only wish it would allow me to install hardware. That is the only thing I have to go onsite for anymore.
I have used Teamviewer as well. It doesn't have the same rich feature set that LogMeIn Rescue has. Additionally, I have used and looked at Zendesk's support. This product works best if you are using Zendesk as your helpdesk platform. I have also used: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, GoToMeeting, join.me, and Remote Desktop.
Excellent and timely support. I haven't needed to use support for Rescue, however, I have contacted LogMeIn support for other products and have been impressed.

I've used them all depending on the technical savvy of my customer). I have even used it to help family and friends with their support needs.
