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.
