ScreenConnect Software


 

ScreenConnect is an application that allows technicians to perform remote support, gain remote access and run remote meetings. It acts as a meeting point between technicians and customers, enabling them to receive solutions without phone or chat sessions.

ScreenConnect is accessible from any internet-connected device. The solution's remote support allows users to remotely view and control devices, servers or workstations. Users can create and manage sessions from a customizable and brandable centralized control panel.

With ScreenConnect’s remote access, users can gain access to and control unattended servers or computers. This model helps users install and upgrade customer computers without requiring manually enabled connections.

ScreenConnect’s remote meeting and presentation feature allows users to share their screen with one or more individuals. Users can collaborate with team members, provide project updates, conduct training sessions and make presentations. ScreenConnect allows the presenter to share their screen with an unlimited audience.

ScreenConnect comes with four different pricing packages and offers dedicated mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Easy to establish a connection between myself and end users - we have the URL embedded on our website allowing them to just click and enter the required code.

Connecting to mobile devices needs a lot of work. Button and keyboard events don't work well and some on screen controls for home / back would be great.

it allows me to support my business customers in real time, develop apps together offers real value to them and a unique insight form into their business lives. I don't have to travel, I can offer timed short sessions to work around my customers time slots, and allow for last minute changes in my schedule to maximise my earning potential. I could live without this product it was just what I was looking for to help me run my business entirely from home.

Pros

I like the web UI, and that I can manage several remote sessions. I like that it has an API so that as my business grows, we can furhter integrate the software into our tools.

Cons

I would prefer if there was a permanent onscreen share/dont share button, which defaults to not share. When you launch a controller session, it would be good before it starts, if you could choose which side is in control at the start. As it is likely that the person is on their computer when you connect, its probably polite to start not seeing their screen straight off.

Pros

Easy to use, easy to customize, and reliable. WOrks well over multiple connection types, and supports all features in one price (for control) --- no upgrades necessary. Basically they took everything good about logmein and logmein central which I used religiously until back to back to back years of price doubles or more.

Cons

Have had a few issues with updates, but understand and support their desire to keep improving their product

The ability to remote into a client computer via the web.

Pros

The web interface is really easy to use. Implementing the program on a client computer for continual use is also very easy via the web. The ability to send a client an email with a link to the session makes it easier for clients that are not very tech savvy and don't navigate the internet that well. The program has a very small profile and will not use a lot of resources on the client system.

Cons

It would be nice if I could use the web interface to force a machine to reboot if it is in a state where it will not respond like other remote control programs allow. While I like the web interface a desktop application would also be nice like some other remote control programs.

Ability to provide support to remote users.

Pros

Easy to setup
Easy to deploy to devices
Geographic customization (for hosted)
Easy upgrades to server side and client side (automatic or forced).
Keep organized and secure with groups for different levels of access.

Cons

The Android mobile app has gone from bad to worse to bad again. The mouse function makes it frustrating to connect and support anyone. At one point, for a few months, the mouse didn't work at all. It shouldn't be this hard to use a phone to do remote support. I switched from LogMeIn and their Andorid app was fantastic.

A complete redesign is necessary and should be a native app, not a browser wrapper.

Pros

This software is quick and easy to use. Unlike other vendors, you are allowed to create a pool of machines for unattended access and all administrators can access them. Mobile app also works well.

I do wish updating endpoints to the latest version was a one-click action.

mobility, reliability, ease of use, permanent access machines, client side ease of installation. mobility.

Pros

The mobile app was a key reason for using ConnectWise, it allows our mobile and remote support reps to literally be anywhere in the world and instantly access servers and client pc's in an instant.

The interface is very easy on both mobile and desktop, ease of connection form the client side is perfect and the ability to not just support on the fly but build permanent access machines and group them is a great help.

Cons

Customer support is hard to get on the phone, at least it was when they were ScreenConnect, to be fair i haven't needed support since the rebranding to ConnectWise. Email support is slow but acceptable. That being said, the fact that i haven't needed support, and truthfully have only ever needed it maybe twice, kinda speaks for itself.

Very good remote software and being able to connect to clients on the fly. It was very cheap and affordable even for a one man shop. Made me look like a bigger organization.

Pros

The ease of use. Compared to other Remote programs, Screen Connect is just as fast, if not faster. Sessions connect fast and the extra tools are an extra help such as the file box and remote commands.

Cons

Setting up different sites was a bit difficult but once I figured it out it was easy. It could be easier though.
