Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Assist

Currently we use Zoho Assist for remoting into client desktops/machines to troubleshoot issues or questions regarding our cloud software. Our software is hosted in the cloud via a Web Browser, so support utilizes Zoho Assist to more intimately address issues without having to verbally talk a client through the question/issue. It allows our team to take over keyboard/mouse controls and view the client's machine to easily complete the tasks at hand.
  • Easy startup on client's end.
  • Minimal permissions to enable sessions / not intrusive security-wise.
  • Seamless control of client's machine.
  • More functionality to adjust screenshare settings if client has multiple monitors.
  • Making it a no-download for the client.
  • Able to easily record sessions and document it back to Zoho CRM (integrations).
  • Postive ROI by replacing a previous remote assist software that was more expensive.
  • Solving client issues within minutes vs. verbal talk-throughs asking for client to do tasks.
  • Cost-friendly for small businesses as it's subscription based.
Our company uses most of the Zoho products so Zoho Assist seemed like a no-brainer. Capability-wise it offers all the basics our support needs to remote into a workstation and modify files, surf through browsers, and occasionally provide 'mini screenshare training' with clients.
Best used when addressing 1-on-1 issues. Do no recommend for "team based" problem solving where multiple users need to remote in to address issues. Does an excellent job running flawlessly even if client has minor connectivity issues with their internet. Best for small-to-medium businesses. For clients with heavy security protocols in place (DOD level firewall protection or 3rd party extension blocking), Zoho may not be a good product.
