Overall Satisfaction with Rescue

We use Rescue to provide Tier 3 remote engineering support to our international manufacturing centers. We can connect to our fully automated production lines as well as our manned stations to perform diagnostics and advanced troubleshooting from our design center, home, or anywhere. Our on-site technicians and engineers also utilize the software to monitor and control the machines from home or their desks. Rescue also gives us the flexibility and security to allow equipment vendors to join our remote connection sessions when setting up new manufacturing machinery for the first time, or if a critical failure occurs that our team cannot diagnose and correct.
  • Security.
  • Connect from anywhere.
  • Not limited to internal users.
  • Lack of remote deployment.
  • High cost versus competitors.
  • The administrative console is a little clunky.
  • Reducing the number of international flights to provide rapid support.
  • Greater flexibility for workers able to work remotely and still provide support.
  • Avoid costs of having vendors come onsite to provide support in person.
  • SolarWinds Dameware Remote Support (DRS)
SolarWinds Dameware is the cheaper option by far and had the ability to be remotely deployed, but it was limited to PCs and users within our domain. Rescue allows us to connect to our systems that are in locations that are off our primary domain and gives us a secure environment to allow vendors remote access if we require their assistance. Rescue has become the standard for our IT department to provide assistance to regular users and we have now leveraged that to allow engineering resources to support the production lines.

Did LogMeIn Rescue by GoTo live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of LogMeIn Rescue by GoTo go as expected?


Would you buy LogMeIn Rescue by GoTo again?


We have only recently started using Rescue, so we do not have a wide range of experiences with it yet. Competing products only allowed us to connect to systems that were within the company domain, but Rescue allows us to connect to systems operated by our subcontractors in Asia that are outside our network. It is also fairly easy to allow vendors to connect to our machines with our discrete permission.
