Overall Satisfaction with TeamViewer

TeamViewer is an essential end-user computer support tool that provides seamless remote connectivity, monitoring and end-point protection for all computer assets within the company. TeamViewer solves the cumbersome problem of remote support and connectivity in an ever-growing remote workforce. The tool also provides us with reporting and monitoring to ensure our end-points are protected at all times with access only a click of a button away in-case there is an issue requiring IT's attention. The ability to connect, communicate and stay connected to our assets gives peace-of-mind to the IT support team.
  • Remote connectivity Support
  • Ease-of-Use for non-technical staff

  • Lightweight and trustworthy application
  • Allowing for trusted connections on known computers and networks
  • Lower bandwidth connection options
  • Remote video/voice quality
  • More levels of grouping in console
  • TeamViewer has allowed us to cut our contracted remote support staff saving thousands of dollars on support costs overall
  • TeamViewer provides all the functionality of an enterprise grade endpoint protection tool at half the cost
  • TeamViewer can be used also as a meeting and collaboration tool as an added feature to the remote software
  • TeamViewer allows us to remotely manage and access our core server infrastructure, allowing for less time in-front of the servers cutting travel and overtime costs
TeamViewer is the middle-man between the enterprise tool Kaseya NOC Services and the lightweight tool LogMeIn Pro. TeamViewer provides the functionality of monitoring and reporting while easy to use and easy to deploy - sometimes with one click on a button you're connected. While it doesn't have the core-system admin functionality of Kaseya NOC Services and the rootkit tools, it does provide remote connectivity in a very optimized way. The TeamViewer app is more widely used and trusted in IT then LogMeIn Pro and we decided TeamViewer as the cost difference was negligible

When computers are in need of support that are non-domain joined or are legacy machines lacking documentation TeamViewer is there to save you from a headache! End-users can install the remote agent on their machine without local admin rights with the click of a session-code, created by the admin or support technician. The session code can be configured with a name and properties to then save the details of that asset. This has saved our support techs many times when working on machines that may be out-of-date, out-of-sync or no local-admin password available.
Simply put, with TeamViewer and their suite of security features we are confident in our cyber-security approach to remote assistance and end-point protection. We never doubt the integrity of a connection or of a report/alert that is received. TeamViewer is used on our sensitive machines that hold data of our customers and patients, it is imperative to have a tool that is HIPAA compliant and has safeguards in place to ensure this sensitive information is kept private with no possibility of exposure through a TeamViewer session.

TeamViewer is best suited in any IT environment with a heavy remote workforce, with the lightweight and customized installer, TeamViewer is easy to deploy on all your endpoints. The ability to group and customize your "buckets" of computer makes for a controlled and well organized holistic view of all of your endpoints at any time. TeamViewer is less suited for environments that have support technicians that do not possess local administrative rights as TeamViewer has functionality to block-out the screen when a UAC prompt is present.

Using TeamViewer

5 - We use TeamViewer primarily for the remote assistance functionality as well as the endpoint monitoring. We've expanded the use of TeamViewer to internal teams that require remote connectivity to computerized equipment for core-competency related activities to our operations. This allows the business to quickly and seamlessly work on multiple devices in different locations at the same time.
2 - TeamViewer is a very easy to use and easy to support tool. The fact that we only have 2 in-house resources managing TeamViewer tells you how easy and trustworthy of a tool it really is. The types of skills required to support TeamViewer are found in any IT support resource, IT operations manager or IT management professional.
  • Remote Assistance
  • Endpoint monitoring
  • Endpoint protection
  • Remote connectivity of in-house devices
  • Rather then having to login to multiple devices at once physically, we use TeamViewer to connect to machines in-house for operations teams
  • TeamViewer session codes are used to support non-domain joined machines
  • TeamViewer is used to check up-time on servers and devices with it's build-in administration tools
  • Mobile device managment
  • Security and patching of endpoint devices
  • Network monitoring and security
TeamViewer is everything we're looking for in a support tool, the cost for the tool is negligible with the value we receive from the tool. TeamViewer has saved us many times and continues to provide functionality and support for our devices like we haven't seen before in other tools. The ability to use TeamViewer quick connect provides efficient and non-technical ways for our non-tech-savvy end-users to get the assistance that they need while IT has the visibility and control over all of its' computer assets.

Price, we needed a stable and secure tool that provided end-user remote assistance in an ever-growing remote workforce. The price for TeamViewer is extremely valuable for the service that you receive. TeamViewer stands up to the most expensive assistance tools and continues to provide more functionality and features providing even further value to the decision of implementing the tool
If I had to go through another evaluation cycle of remote assistance tools I would have end-users and support technicians use the tools in a pilot setting to gather feedback. I would also provide tricky scenarios like firewalls and restrictive accounts to test the integrity of the tool. The ability for us to test different tools in different environments would tell us what is best suited overall. I have no doubts TeamViewer comes out on top each time.
