Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Offers more security than TeamViewer, Google Remote Desktop, and Zoom. It's a stable, feature-rich solution that's easy to set up and easy to scale.""Due to the fact that we can help our clients virtually, the solution has allowed us to reduce our travel costs by about 90%.""Control lets us do remote management of machines without having to be on the VPN. It's super simple and super easy.""You can bring up a command prompt remotely and execute commands without having to disturb the user.""ConnectWise Connect is very convenient as we can remote to a PC even when it is not within our LAN.""I do love the monitoring page. If you are using ConnectWise Control, which is the on-prem version, when you are logged into the admin panel, there is a status page that checks network connectivity, the status of the license, and so on."

"Webex is a thin client and we like the interface. It is easy to use.""What I value most about Webex is its stability compared to other solutions.""It's a nice tool for virtual meetings and I'm satisfied with its performance.""It is user-friendly.""The solution is very valuable for conference calls, as a lot of businesses are switching from work-from-home.""The solution is user-friendly.""One of the most valuable features of WebEx is that it's very quick for ad hoc meetings, and I use it all day, every day, for internal chat with my team. It's just a good platform.""I like how Webex lets you zoom in and out on the presenter's screen. It's silly, but all the solutions have the same features, and I think WebEx is the only one that allows zoom."

More Webex Pros →

"Something that I would like to see in the future is mobile video streaming. They do provide audio conferencing, but seeing the problem makes it easier to solve the problem. If they had video streaming, if a client had a physical problem with something and I couldn't get remote access, the client could use his mobile phone to show me the problem. In these cases, even if a client's systems were down, I could help, so long as I had a mobile phone environment.""I really didn't care for the onboarding process and it is something that should be improved.""I would like ConnectWise Control to be more transparent on the real costs to renew their license.""On a Linux machine, there are different limitations that are not there on a Windows Server. Much more limitations exist on Linux deployments.""There could be improvement to the remote command line tools."

More ConnectWise Control Cons →

"When I use it personally, not in my enterprise, there is a time limit of about 60 minutes. After one hour, the call gets cut off. This limit should be increased.""Performance of this platform needs improvement. There was a stability issue, particularly glitches that kept it from running smoothly.""I would like to see more integration, with respect to some more unified communication activities.""Webex could improve the performance.""My biggest issue with the solution involves its price, which I find to be prohibitive for small governments and modest-sized schools.""The solution can improve by adding a smaller version for small business usage or for personal use. The solution is geared towards larger companies and enterprises.""Sometimes we've had issues with the connection.""Webex could improve by adding captions for the translation."
