There is no better solution

I can remote into my clients PC's for support or have unattended connections to servers for maintenance and monitoring. Saves time (not travelling to client location) allows me the freedom to work from anywhere

Pros

-Works very well.
-not resource heavy
-multi platform

Cons

-Nothing I can really think of.
-This is my go to application for rmm.

Alternatives Considered

TeamViewer and Central

Reasons for Choosing ConnectWise Control

-This seems more stable and more feature rich. Splashtop was less expensive, but too many issues

Reasons for Switching to ConnectWise Control

-Better price for for the performance and features. Team viewer is nice, but way overpriced.

A Reliable, quick and lightweight solution.

ConnectWise Control has helped us to dial into our clients in a fast and reliable manner. It's configurations mean that we can dial into servers without prompting the machine, but to dial into a workstation, the user does need to consent to control. This is crucial.

Pros

The speed in which we can connect to our end users with Control is it's greatest strength. It is very lightweight and a joy to use.

Cons

The support can be a little on the slow side, if required. more often than not, the support team have to escalate and log a ticket, which takes a while t get a response.

Alternatives Considered

VNC Connect

Reasons for Choosing ConnectWise Control

TeamViewer renewal fees ,we found to be extremely high. Plus, ConnectWise control integrates with ConnectWise RMM, which we use daily.

ConnectWise is a fantastic tool to remote in and help employees

Pros

How easy it is to access other computers using Connectwise. It's really nice to run PowerShell scripts on it remotely as well using #!PS command before it. You can also segment groups so other people can only see their specific employees. What is also nice is installing updates for Connectwise remotely by using the reinstall command.

Cons

It's a bit pricey compared to other alternatives that we looked at.

Reasons for Switching to ConnectWise Control

I felt for the price and features, Connectwise was the best alternative we could've choose. I still feel like it has been for 2+ years.
