Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup was very easy.""I like the options for multiple displays. The unattended access is very useful, but it can also be misused. So, it is something you have to be careful with.""It allows you to transfer along with many other functions.""LogMeIn Central allows numerous active clients, say... 50, to use licenses for remotely accessing a computer from home, taking advantage of all the solution's built-in security features."

"This is a very reliable product and I've never had it crash."

More LogMeIn Pro Pros →

Cons
"The solution is expensive as hell.""Our clients are having issues with printing.""Compared to other products, I feel that their biggest weakness has been customer service. They are very nice, but things take forever to resolve. It has been a major issue there. Otherwise, we're happy. We haven't moved away from them because we haven't found anybody with comparable pricing for our business model."

More LogMeIn Central Cons →

"It would be helpful if there were more things that you could do outside of having to log into the machine, such as being able to raise a command line and reboot the computer if, for whatever reason, it doesn't want to let me in."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Coming from where it was free, it's getting to be expensive."
  • "We've been trying to nail its cost down ourselves, and it is a disaster in that area because you get different numbers all the time. They say this is what it is, but the numbers don't make a lot of sense to me. I know that the numbers change. So, the more you have, the less they are per seat, but I don't really understand where those breakdowns are. Its billing is confusing. It is definitely the worst part. For 7,500 seats, it might be between 2,250 and 2,700 a month. It is somewhere in there."
  • "Having to spend so much money on remote access is what I feel to be a necessary evil."
