An essential asset for your team

For me, personally it's the best app to connect remotely available in the market. Anydesk is a good second.

Pros

You'll be able to utilize this software to remotely connect to either assist your clients, manage your sytstems remotely, connect to a server, transfer files or execute commands from anywhere in the world. You can bookmark all your connections and manage them in groups and view the status of the machines from a simple side window.

Cons

The license can be a little expensive and sometimes the software may lag if the client you're connecting too is outdated. You need to look up the licenses because even the cheapest one, unless you buy a volume license, you need to be specific on how many people will be using the license and only one can use it at the time.

Reasons for Choosing TeamViewer

Knew a lot more about Teamviewer previously from usage and recommended by others in the same field as me.

Reasons for Switching to TeamViewer

Better connection Performance and reliability. Also less CPU intensive.

Teamviewer a feature rich desktop sharing tool

My overall experience with TeamViewer is good. Although there have been some hiccups recently while using it regarding the frequent disconnections and performance lags on slower networks.

Pros

Teamviewer is a very feature-rich solution for screen sharing and meeting purposes. during a session, you have all the tools at your hand that you might need in a session. There is a text chat area, voice call options, screen sharing, file sharing, switch sides by a single click, on-screen drawing, etc. And above all; 95% of the time its tool are pretty much quality assured and work as they are expected.

Cons

TeamViewer is quite a costly solution when you go for paid or business solutions. Secondly, it's a little bit heavy on network traffic and can have issues with low-speed connections or the ones that are not stable.

Reasons for Choosing TeamViewer

TeamViewer has more tools in it and gives more options as compared to any desk.

Reasons for Switching to TeamViewer

Previously I was using a remote desktop for similar needs but it's not easily available on all Operating Systems. especially Linux. Secondly I had to mix other tools for things like chat etc and it also needed a public dns or IP to access. TeamViewer makes that easy

Team Viewer works as a screen sharing program for institutions but is tricky to navigate for users.

For within an organization, the product is great for screen sharing, but outside it is just clunky.

Pros

I like that Team Viewer has free and paid options for users versus enterprise, it ensures that you have a quality product, but does not then price-gouge the occasional user. Team Viewer is a great alternative for screen sharing when you are able to have the time to figure out the tools, or have an IT Staff who are able to set it up for you and then train you for a simple navigation. I have had good success with companies contacting me through Team Viewer, but never in the other direction.

Cons

There are several things I did not like about Team Viewer. First, Team Viewer is very clunky to use. In terms of just setting up an account, there were steps that we (me and IT) did online and on the application, which also duplicated themselves. There were authorizations that seemed unnecessary. After downloading, the launched application still had to "okay" the computer, with further steps authorizing the machine through email, which were already done as part of setup. We acquired Team Viewer to share a work machine and a personal machine, with the personal account being the initiating account on the work machine, and the work account being the recipient. Due to, as Support said, too many similar characters in the two emails, they were flagged as being from the same organization even though the domains were completely different. Even with support, the issue was not resolvable. The screen sharing is extremely slow on a fairly open (no one was working) 300 mg pipe, which flies for everything else. In the end, we decided it was easier to work with two work machines for what we were trying to do, acquired a few external HDs and just used Remote Desktop. I have had success with other companies contacting me through Team Viewer, but have never been able to initiate back to them. Again, despite supports help, it is like my account is "flagged" to always be from organization to organization with little hope of resolution.

TeamViewer The best

TeamViewer allows me to earn money without having to travel as a freelancer.

Pros

TeamViewer is excellent software, as it allows us to transfer files quickly and privately with a high level of security. With TeamViewer, working remotely has become child's play, because you have remote access that allows you to monitor systems, networks, etc... On Windows and Linux. TeamViewer also gives you the possibility to correspond with colleagues during online meetings. The user interface of TeamViewer is also simple for the use of new software. Installations and updates can be carried out without any problems with a single click. When travelling with TeamViewer, you can use your Android devices, making it easy and convenient to be in contact with the target computer. With TeamViewer you can not only share your screen, but also access your entire computer. In short, TeamViewer is an excellent software compatible on mobile and Pc devices.

Cons

I think it's a good software overall but I find that TeamViewer is very slow when it comes to transferring large files. The other aspect is voice calls really, they are not at their best. The improvement will make a good deal. Finally, without a connection there is no possibility to control or access other devices in our own network.

Reasons for Choosing TeamViewer

Because TeamViewer is more popular

One of few top softwares for taking remote sessions

Overall, its ease of mind to use it rather than its competitors like zoom and cisco webex. It runs smoother and hassle free.

Pros

Following are the features which I like 1. Ease of using shortcuts, in other remote meeting softwares shortcuts are a problem always. 2. It runs fast without a delay and also light on system resources. 3. You can leave it unattended for longer period of time.

Cons

I don't know its me or it happens with everyone that there no support for audio in it. I mean we can't talk to each other which taking the remote session. For this we have to establish a zoom meeting and do everything through teamviewer. Also they could add a feature like any desk that it remembers the last connections.

Reasons for Choosing TeamViewer

Because its dependable, fast and all of the above reasons which I mentioned in pros section.

Reasons for Switching to TeamViewer

Because cisco webex have some spots on screen which you can't click and that's very annoying.
