Overall Satisfaction with VNC Connect

VNC Connect was being used to support other departments and remote users when IT support was required. Being able to view a user's screen in real-time was a huge advantage when troubleshooting a wide assortment of day to day problems. This would save time, money and the mental health of both parties.
  • Remotely accessing workstations.
  • It's lightweight and easy to navigate.
  • Mobile access of other workstations allowed both parties to be away from the office and still get the IT support they needed.
  • License requirements may not be ideal for some parties.
  • VNC support hours aren't the best based on the requester's geographical location.
  • Upgrading end users is a little clunky.
  • Timely support for end users saving time for remote IT support agents.
  • Lowering travel costs for IT support having to be on site to work on problems.
At the time of our switch to GoToAssist, we we seeking a solution that allowed admin access to workstations. GoToAssist met our requirements for this problem.
Remote access to end users if support is needed.
