Pros

In our company we use Bomgar to secure remote access for privileged users. The system works very well and is easy to use.

Cons

In my opinion, the system is very good. It fully meets our requirements and works very well. I believe that the manufacturer can only improve licensing models

Bomgar is a very good software, it has too many excellent and lucrative functions that complement very well the long distance remote connection, the only factor that affects are the prices but I trust that at some point the plans for a better accessibility will decrease. Bomgar has helped me a lot in business, since I can connect with my employees to provide support and other things.

Pros

The best thing about Bomgar is the speed of its connection, it can be anywhere in the world, in any country, and in the same way, provide a support with a fast connection and without connection drops, the stability in this software is the factor that has given you the most life.

Cons

I do not like that Bomgar has high prices, since the intention of this software is to help connect from any place or device and give distant support, but the prices of the plans do not allow accessibility, if the mission is help, I would like lower the prices so high.

Easy & quick installation

Pros

It allows use to handle remote access and do it without troubling the user, it allows us not to require knowledge of the user password

Cons

Product is pricey for the small to mid size shop, the need to touch each device for installation takes a lot of coordination for remote users

We have a team of 4 technicians supporting 45 buildings and nearly 4500 uses. Bomgar definitely helps us be more effective even with such a small group. The ability to work off sight is an added value.

Pros

Bomgar allow access to machines effortlessly by being able to send the user a link. Doesn't require any overwhelming technical expertise on their part.

Cons

The software is a little pricey, but worth the value for the most part.

Bomgar has being the most hassle free VPN client I have used and the security feature it provides is the best out there.

Pros

The most simplest, elegant software out there for making reliable VPN connection to work irrespective of the platform.

Cons

I have had trouble accessing the remote machine in full screen while making a presentation. Hope this gets fixed.

I use this when our helpdesk needs to access my computer remotely. They can install and manipulate anything on my computer from bomgar. I don't even have to be connected to the vpn to get access for help.

Pros

The IT tech team can access my computer from anywhere.

Cons

The automatic survey at the end of how your helper was.

I liked the fact that Bomgar has a chat function, and it is also possible to share the screen with other users who are logged in. Failure troubleshooting is fast enough.

The inability to upload videos and files makes me upset. The quality of the connection depends on the speed of the Internet. At first it took a lot of resources to study the program.

We are a small oil and gas inspection company, tied to a large public company. Our IT support group is in another country. When I have problems with my phone, it is a disaster because I need to be in touch with my inspectors. Bomgar lets me get the phone fixed quickly!

Pros

It makes our remote assistance from IT group in another country quick and easy on our phones.

Cons

Nothing form my end. Has been used several times on my phone with excellent results.

I prefer bomgar over just about any other software for remote support services when it comes to a business aspect.

Pros

The multiple options to connect to someone, such as being able to send an email with the link to connect with. Also like how easy the file transfer option is.

Cons

Not sure if this common or not, but updating the software can be a bit annoying at times when admin accounts are required on the computer.

I personally do not use the application too often, but sometimes it is simply irreplaceable. For example, when there is a need to evaluate the productivity of employees. Very accessible and intuitive interface, pleasant and convenient to work.

Cons

Somewhat cumbersome reporting system. Reports are made in such a way that it’s not so easy to get to the necessary information. The rest is a worthy application. I recommend to install.

Overall this has been a great tool and allows you to have IT help at your fingertips as if you had someone sitting right next to you.

Pros

Bomgar allows our IT department to remote into our workstations and address computer issues. It's very user friendly! Once opening the program our IT tech will provide a session key number which you enter and allows them to remote in and take over. I'm generally on the phone with IT while they are accessing my system, but there is also a chat feature that allows you to communicate with whoever is remoting in. Both users can utilize the mouse or keyboard, so I can show them exactly what I clicked on or what error message I am encountering. It has saved so much time as our IT team is relatively small, and an inability to access programs or have a functioning computer can easily impact patient care. I don't have to wait hours for a ticket number to get assigned to a person who has to triage me along with tons of other people. You can also get a transcript of your chat after you have closed the session. There's an icon that will appear on the top right hand corner of your screen to let you know you are connected and someone else has access, and it's easy to know that the session has ended because the icon disappears and there's a notification that you have logged out.

Cons

I have no problems with this software! I have never had trouble with it loading, and each time I've had to use it it has booted up quickly without error, runs smoothly while someone else is accessing my computer, and is incredibly easy to navigate and use.
