Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"You can't compete with TeamViewer or any other similar products. It's completely in a class of its own.""The solution has been very stable. We haven't had issues at all. It doesn't crash or freeze. There aren't bugs or glitches either.""This is a very secure product."

"This product has helped our organization by allowing people to connect with each other.""The remote access is one of the features I really enjoy. The pushing of email updates and things like that are very good.""This solution is easy to use.""The call logging is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very easy to use.""The solution is quite easy to integrate with other Microsoft products.""A very convenient package like an all-in-one tool but it is actually five or six products acting well together.""SCSM is easy to learn because all of the material, including training videos, can be found online.""Many more features than other comparable products."

Cons
"It lacks voice integration like the other products because they need the compression to support that large amount of concurrent sessions. We've had to sacrifice voice.""Non-Windows support capabilities need improvement. They need to expand into Macs, iOS, and Android. It's there now, however, there's room for growth and that's probably the best area to expand.""Technical support for this region can be improved."

"The price of this solution is high and it needs to be cheaper.""It crashes our client's computers. Sometimes they get blue screens. It would be useful if SCSM could check the upgrades or patches before we implemented them to see if they are going to crash a client's system. Or, if it does install, and the client's system crashes, it would be good if the solution could revert back somehow.""Mobile application integration would be an improvement.""The patch management aspect of the solution should be improved. It's quite complicated and not user-friendly. If your systems are not patched properly, you are unable to pull reports.""It's not too hard to compile stuff but it is hard to manage the solution. Even the design itself makes it difficult for management.""Resources for understanding compliance and relative compliance need to be made available.""Better integration with other services in Azure is needed because everything is moving from on-premises to the cloud, and as an integrator, we have to help our clients with the migration.""They need more integration with open-source products."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing is concurrent and we spend about $10,000. It's my understanding that there aren't any extra costs beyond just the straight licensing.""I would prefer that it was more affordable."
