How has it helped my organization?

Using this platform has allowed us to reach and assist our remotely based clients, regardless of their location provided they have an internet connection. In addition to this, the dashboard is invaluable for our workshop based staff to be able to see and attend to critical systems issues at a glance to a dedicated screen.

What needs improvement?

Remote Desktop Assistance for Mac endpoints - not having this functionality is a major inconvenience in having to have two systems for clients using this platform. If the product had this functionality it would get a 10/10 rating from me.

Approx. 2 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No major issues in deployment, our transition from SaaS to hosted implementation was reasonably seamless.

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

Previously we had been using Kaseya, switch was made due to to a combination of stability and pricing issues.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was reasonably straightforward, follow the manual and ensure you have a SSL certificate valid for the domain record you intend to implement the service on if hosting in-house and you shouldn't run into any problems.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented our SaaS trial through the NZ distributor of this product (Chillisoft), once we have completed our testing, we migrated to a hosted solution which we implemented in-house. The team at Chillisoft are very knowledgeable on this product.

What was our ROI?

Our ROI is approx. 4-5 months with our current usage in each 12 month billing period. This will vary based on your actual licensing requirements and how you on-charge this to clients.

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

Check your actual requirements, remember that RDP session licensing is based on concurrent active connections, and always ensure you have a few client licenses up your sleeve.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, several - from memory Naverisk, Autotask, and Kaseya (incumbent at that point).
