We're able to see issues from the users' perspectives, but there are issues when connecting over VPN.

What is most valuable?

The ability to see issue from users perspective and installation of software.

How has it helped my organization?

Worked well for awhile but issues with it connecting over VPN was a major drawback.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using it since 2009. We also utilize GoToAssist which has more features and runs smoother. It also allows us to send files to the user, and connect to users working remotely over VPN which Dameware does not do.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

Find out what your peers are saying about SolarWinds, Microsoft, TeamViewer and others in Remote Access. Updated: June 2022.
610,229 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

VPN users are an issue as well as some machines that just will not allow the client to connect, then we have to utilize GoToAssist.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are actually using Dameware for systems on our network, and for VPN users we utilize GoToAssist.

How was the initial setup?

It was very easy to install.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What other advice do I have?

Would recommend GoToAssist honestly, as it does everything Dameware does only better and offers more features.

Using it has made our troubleshooting faster and easier.

How has it helped my organization?

Using DameWare has made the troubleshooting process faster. It's easier for us and for the customer.

What needs improvement?

There are no improvements I can think of right off the bat. The software is pretty simplistic.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used the remote version for five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There where no issues when we deployed the product.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

DameWare is a pretty stable product, and we've had no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

It's great.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

When I first started working for this company in 2007, we used PC Anywhere, and our customers were still on dial-up. Once we went to DSL and cable connections, we needed a better solution so the company chose DameWare.

How was the initial setup?

It's straightforward for the most part.

What about the implementation team?

It was implemented by an in-house help desk team in our company.

The Remote Support tool allows techs to link to off-network users, but the knowledge base lacks updated articles.

What is most valuable?

The ability to control admin rights through AD groups allows the techs to have all of the rights that they would normally without adjustments on the backend of the product. The Internet Sessions with the Remote Support tool also help for field support as well

How has it helped my organization?

The Internet Sessions with the Remote Support tool, because it allows the tech to send a link to the user who is off network for support.

What needs improvement?

SolarWinds has a great KB but many of the articles are lacking updated information and the keyword search is lacking if you don't have previous experience with the product and encounter issues.

For how long have I used the solution?

One year on the current version, and seven and a half in total.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

The deployment was standard.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

8/10.

Technical Support:

6/10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

GoToMeeting was the previous application, and we changed for more control and license pricing.

How was the initial setup?

Once the server was fully configured, there were no other issues, but there was very little information on how to initially configure the central server.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If determining licensing and pricing, you might want to consider an across the board price for Remote Support rather than the Mini Control Unit. You will discover that even using the centralized version, some users will still need to have the elevated features.
