Quotes From Members Comparing LogMeIn Rescue vs. XenApp

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
No issues with scalability. It is a fairly simple model. If I wanted to add five more, I would just buy five more people and licenses, apply the program to their computers, and give them their login.​The initial setup is easy. If you want the desktop program, you just download and install it.It is very straightforward to set up, use, install, and transfer sessions.If an issue happens, we're able to log in at the time that it happens and address it , so there's minimal downtime.The ability see iOS devices helps us out a lot because the majority of our users are iOS device users.it's very easy to use, it's very efficient.The tech support person I spoke to was very knowledgeable about the product, and was straightforward with me about its capabilities. There was no fluff about the product. They basically said this is not available now and we're hoping to have it available in the third or fourth quarter. It was nice to talk to someone who was straightforward and knew about the product.I have technicians all over, and not everybody is an expert in all areas. They are able to bring other expertise from different locations with the click of a mouse. They can invite in other technicians, so I can have most of the technicians collaborate on the same question, and that’s really amazing.

Cons
​Network browsing and connecting on the LAN, because if you can't see the computers on your network​, what good is the product?They need to improve their technical support.it needs better iOS integration. It's still limited in its functionality when it comes to iOS. Currently, when you do something other than iOS, you're not able to take control of what's going on; instead of having to tell the user, "Click here, click there," I would like to have full control over an iOS device.The one big problem that I have with LogMeIn Rescue is, I use a Mac. All my technicians use PCs. I use a Mac, and the Mac agent crashes at least once a day. I have to stop it and start it again. To date, I don’t have a problem with people using PC. I think the Mac app that they have needs to be improved.They need to combine computer and mobile end-user support to be a more streamlined experience.Secondly, the product needs improvement on mobile interfaces because on mobile devices it doesn't perform very well. On computers, it is good, with desktops, laptops, it is good. Sometimes iPad is good, but going with other devices, like Android or Windows on smart phones, ​it's always a problem.You should be able to remote on an iPhone like you remote on an Android. It is not the same experience. Unless you are very savvy on iOS, you are pretty much lost.​​The interface is not ​user-friendly. It looks a little outdated.​ I think the options are there. I think just the layout needs improvement.​

There are a lot of shortfalls with supporting printing over XenApp.Dependency on server virtualization after v7.x is an issue which I encountered in small environments.There are many latency and slowness issues, which are things looked after by Citrix.Scalability depends on the server and the number of users in the organization.​There have been many issues with stability.

Pricing and Cost Advice
​The rescue model is licensed by user.The pricing is worth the value.It's definitely worth the value.The cost of LogMeIn is high... I went with another product that was going to give me savings of 50%. One technician tested it, he gave us the thumbs up. Then once we moved all my technicians to it, but it didn’t work... Trying to move from LogMeIn hindered our performance and productivity and it was not worth the savings.Pricing is reasonable and easily offsets other costs, while resolving issues in a much quicker timeframe.It is ​on the medium to high side. For us, it is worth it. For the amount of time they save us, it pretty much pays for itself.​Look at the different plans they have. Do not pay for a plan you do not need.​The pricing is a little on the higher side, though.​

It is a bit costly, but enterprise class features come with a cost.The licenses are affordable, but the support is a bit expensive, though worth the value.​The product, XenServer, is free to use, and XenApp has a one month free license.You have to do some hard work in order to get the suitable licenses.
