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

Pros
"This solution has allowed us to have a highly flexible remote access solution in DR/BC situations.""The solution is very quick to set up.""I can do anything from a remote desktop as if I were sitting at my own PC.""The technical support is good.""The installation is almost instant."

More GoToMyPC Pros »

More Parallels Access Pros »

Cons
"If the PC is hung then it requires a reboot.""Integration could be improved. I'd prefer if the solution could integrate with our support and report tools as well as our timesheet reporting.""The pricing has tripled in a small amount of time and there is not three times better service."

More GoToMyPC Cons »

"They could improve the reporting.""One challenge we do notice is that the application is limited to Windows servers only. If a customer has a Linux server, things get complicated. They should open it up a bit to be more compatible with different types of servers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We pay approximately 2,000 Euros a year for the solution. The licensing is all-inclusive; you don't have to pay for extra add-ons or services.""It was cheap and now it is comparably expensive. It costs me $484 to use the solution with just two physical PCs."
