TeamViewer Initial Setup

John DeMillion
Director of IT at Chester County Intermediate Unit
TeamViewer deployment is fairly straightforward: knowledgeable techs can configure Host settings, brand the Host, and mass-deploy it pretty easily. Manual setup on individual Hosts is very clunky and time-consuming compared to LogMeIn, however. We deployed it very quickly. We had not made a final decision on LogMeIn until very close to when our LogMeIn's licenses were expiring. So very quickly, within a couple of days, they were able to push out the TeamViewer Host to all of our devices. Initial setup and ongoing management of Groups and other central management tasks is messy, time-consuming, inelegant and makes no sense. TeamViewer needs to take a hard look at their hodgepodge and take a good long peek at how LogMeIn Central works and....be more like LogMeIn in central management. View full review »

The initial setup was straightforward. I use the corporate plan now and have the installer pushed from my remote monitoring platform, so it's ridiculously simple these days. Nowadays, the installation happens automatically, so it doesn't take any time at all. Basically, when I put my remote monitoring and management tool on the customer machine, it takes care of pulling it down, setting it up, and joining it to my account all on its own.

The initial setup is real easy. We have the software loaded on all the machines that we send out. You just click on the icon to let it load. We put a username in it, then we set up an access password, and it's done. That is it. It literally takes probably about two to three minutes from start to finish. View full review »

For our client, we just download, install it, install another one internally, and generate the unique ID. Then, you're good to go. The only thing that we do change is the password. It's a lot easier to type it in than the computer generated one. The install process takes 5 to ten minutes. This includes time to record the ID for look up later on. View full review »

Very easy to setup. I have gotten computer novices to install and run the program with just a few word of instruction. View full review »
