Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Dameware Remote Support (DRS)

We are using this tool in conjunction with Lansweeper to remote manage our employee laptops/workstations as well as servers. We use Lansweeper to look up computer names associated with an employee, and use DRS and Dameware Mini Remote Control to access their computers, usually while on the phone with them, to virtually look over their shoulder and help mitigate issues that arise. We've been using Dameware Mini Remote for over 7 years and DRS for over 4. DRS adds useful functionality to the mix and is a great upgrade to the remote control software.
  • Access to laptops/workstations with screen shared to the end user.
  • N/A
DRS is an economical solution to 99% of our remote support needs.
