Pros: It is easy to use for both the user and the analyst. It has a small footprint but large functionality. Most importantly is the company - they aren't about upselling or trying to squeeze more out of you - they really want to see you successful.

Cons: I would like to have it more integrated into my environment. The hooks are there, but I need help to do that. It really isn't a bomgar problem, but rather an issue with my other tools.

It's not Marmite, everybody loves it!

Pros: I love the way it brings a lot of remote support tools into one console so you don't need to know some of the more advanced techniques to deliver support (e.g. opening remote session within registry editor, using admin$ etc) but what I think is even better is the canned scripts.

I can create a canned script to run routine but advanced tasks on remote system but then make it available to the service desk enabling a semi-skilled SDA to complete tasks that would normally be passed back to 2nd and 3rd line support. Not only does this increase the first fix rating, it also (as I've been told by the SDM) adds to the moral of the SD team as they feel trusted and empowered.

One thing that really does raise Bomgar above the competition is their excellent customer service, which I have not even seen matched let alone bettered!

Cons: Well, I have to say I'm struggling with this part. Maybe I'd like to see the individual licence fee come down a bit, not that it isn't value for money, it's just we have a limited budget so cannot afford as many as we'd like.

It's worth noting here though that Bomgar have supported us (a non-profit university) in this area but giving a generous discount and 'loaned' us an extra couple of licences (for free) when we really needed them for a short time but simply didn't have the money to buy them...

Pros: I like everything about Bomgar! We support Microsoft, Apple and other platforms and use Bomgar to connect to all of them. It works! It's fast! It's simple, and doesn't scare customers. We push it to user's computers registered on the Domain, and use it multiple times a day to resolve issues. Our customers who used to demand we show up in person are now happy to let us remote and fix the issue quickly. They can show us the problem instead of trying to describe it.

Cons: I wish it were free, and never had to be upgraded, but neither of these desirables are deliverable.

Overall: Everything I hoped.

Pros: - it's a fast and very easy to use
- ability to share and invite other reps
- multi platform tool
- allows to annotate on a screen
- saves session recording in the cloud
- integrates with salesforce

I like this tool a lot because it is very easy to use, customers just run a small app and that's it. I does not matter if a customer uses Mac or Windows. I also like the fact I have access to machine specs, can annotate on a screen and all of this is saved to the cloud as a video file so the screen sharing session can be reviewed later by colleagues.

Cons: - does not allow to access mobile devices, e.g. iOS or Android
- does not allow for VOIP communication (just screen share/control and text)

The biggest gripe is that we cannot communicate with customers using voice when sharing a screen, there is only chat available.

Overall: It integrates with Salesforce and it is very easy to use, requires minimum actions from customers to run it. This helps to save time a lot as I do not need to add any additional annotations to Salesforce or spend time explaining how to run this tool.

Pros: Without this software we would be unable to support 80% of our customers. The ability to be remoted into a client machine in a matter of seconds is essential, and Bomgar makes it easy.

Cons: My biggest complaint is when working on a Mac that is running Parallels, the swapping between systems can occasionally be clunky and require input from the end user

Overall: Remote support for hundreds of users

Pros: The fact I can assist users that are both on and off our network via https is great. I prefer to use Apple Remote Desktop for our Mac users when the clients are on LAN or connected via VPN. When they are offsite with no VPN, it's a lifesaver. Bomgar is essential for Windows PC support however they are connected. The ability to easily transfer files to and from the client, support for some automation using scripts, is a good tool to have.

Cons: Can get bogged down due to bandwidth consumption. The default setting to reduce video display quality is a bit of a bother for both the user and tech specialist. Sometimes the connection fails completely for some unknown reason.

Overall: The ability to assist my customers wherever they are creates a feeling of confidence in the user. This creates a great working environment and a feeling of teamwork that is priceless.

Pros: I like that more often than not, the person who is remoted in, stays connected on the computer even after a restart.

Cons: I would like to have the ability to remember which computers you remoted into before as well as save a name to who the computer belongs to.

Overall: The ability to not have go from computer to computer, fixing things.

Excellent remote assistance and queue management for tech support teams.

Pros: Deployable "JumpClient" makes remote connecting to customers a breeze. Remote requests prompt users and the Representative Console makes sorting through new requests and finding users to connect to very easy.

Cons: Honestly, this is nitpicky, but the name. We've had Bomgar implemented for over 2 years but we still get "concerned" emails about this aggressive-sounding software "popping up" in the system tray of user's computers. Education is helping, but there really is no great fix for that, and you can't really fault the creator for using his unique surname for the great product.

Overall: Better than VNC, RDP, remote assistance or many other remote connection software options for its ability to deploy and scale cross-platform, as well as usability for non-techs who need to be able to access customer computers.

Pros: My software company uses Bomgar to remotely support our customers. Using this tool we are able to send a user a support link that they then click on to install a small client. This allows us to view their screen in real time to remotely resolve their issues. It is a great tool for both support and training. My IT team likes that you can pin servers to access at their convenience.

Cons: Pricey but you get what you pay for

Comments: Our IT at the University of Tennessee is centralized into one Office of Information Technology. We grant our first tier HelpDesk full access to all of the remote support features. The HelpDesk typically facilitates anywhere from 20-30 sessions per day among 15-20 support reps. Our tier 2 desktop support also uses the client to attempt to resolve desktop support-related issues from their desk. Remote support via Bomgar allows the desktop support techs to resolve issues from their office, regardless of where the user is physically on campus. Bomgar addresses the business problem of getting end-users back to work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our entire OIT organization has access to Bomgar, and many of them use it to solve remote issues for their customers. Additionally, we offer Bomgar as a service to the campus community. Many departments and units around the University have subscribed to Bomgar to support a variety of administrative functions at the University. Cross-platform support and the Jump Client features are critical for a large university with a diverse clientele. Bomgar's customer service has always been top notch and fast to resolve service requests and incidents.

While the other products are nifty and great, I love the ease of use of Bomgar, and it's secure connectivity options. Truly in a class of one!

Comments: We moved to Bomgar from LogMeIn about four years ago and haven't looked back - it has every feature LMI had plus some and it's all-included, LMI wanted extra money for things like mobile device support. With Bomgar, that's just an included feature. We can do presentations through it, record sessions, run scripts, and support is amazing. This is a product that just keeps getting better. I was wondering the other day what was left that they could possibly add and did an update on 12/7/16 - I found out they added a web console in addition to a full client console, so now my ways of accessing the system have doubled!

Comments: We have been a bomgar customer nearly since the beginning of the company. It is one of the few tech tools of which I am a raving fan. The tool itself is simple, effective and powerful. It is a rare combination, but more importantly if the company. They are continually innovating, sharing those new features (rather than upselling them) and nudging us to do more. They are quick to respond and easy to work with. It is one of those win-win relationships with a great product.

Comments: We're just about wrapping up our first year with Bomgar and I must say it's an amazing product, especially after coming from pcAnywhere. I've been able to easily integrate Bomgar remote control links into our 2 deployment tools so techs can simply right click on a computer and select remote control with Bomgar and it instantly starts a remote control session. We've also been able to replace our use of Teamviewer for controlling external pc's as well saving us money and only needing one tool for remote control.

The additional features are just icing on the cake. I can remote registry, command prompt, process, etc... all from one tool.

Comments: I have been using Bomgar for two years now, and have to say, it has spoiled me in the way of remote support. The ease of access for pinned servers/workstations gets me connected in seconds. The canned scripts give me quick one-click actions that save quite a bit of time throughout the day. On top of that, my clients and I have the comfort that all of our information is completely secure.

Comments: Bomgar is a tool that I have used for half a decade now. I also have had to use TeamViewer, Jabber, and LogMeIn quite a bit. Having used all these softwares frequently and in depth, I have to say that Bomgar takes the cake tenfold. For countless reasons, it is the best solution for remote troubleshooting, security, and innovation in support for your company. I can only hope our company never makes a poor decision and switches to any other software. Thanks Bomgar for being a trusted resource in this cyber world.

Comments: Bomgar has helped me a TON when it comes to remote support of employees at my company. No longer do I need to walk someone through opening a specific program or worse, getting me their IP address. I just jump to their machine and do it myself. It doesn't even matter if they are on campus or not just a quick email and BAM I am in doing what needs to be done.

Comments: I have been using Bomgar for over 7 years now and every day I can't say enough good things about it helps me do my job and support our University. I was the one at our University to bring Bomgar in to be our remote support tool and replace what we were using for chat support. Bomgar allows our technicians to provide high-quality support from their office and resolve many issues that use to require a site visit. Our chat volume has increased since implementing Bomgar and the technicians using Chat as a support method love being to initiate a remote session right from the chat screen. Bomgar also allows us to support the many faculty and administrative staff in our Health Services programs that work with HIPAA and PCI data. The security Bomgar offers with there appliances is far more advanced and reliable than any other tool like it.

Comments: Bomgar is excellent for remotely supporting users both inside and outside your network. It is very secure and provides excellent tools for providing access to secure systems. It's lightweight and leaves nothing behind when you are done assisting a client. The interface is very intuitive and along with the basic remote support capabilities, it incorporates more advanced features like being able to make your own canned scripts and OS diagnostic tools.

Comments: I haven't been using anything but Bomgar since we found it a few years back. It is literally the best thing since computers. :) I particularly use the unattended jump client so I can maintain my office PCs without the need to physically touch each one of them.

Pros: Everything is done incredibly well and it integrates with ticketing platforms easily.

Cons: Pricey

Overall: Cross-Platform: Works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Iphone, android; meaning YOU CAN work on phones! If you have an issue with the client installing, you can push the client from another PC which is a huge benefit. edit: Bomgar allows companies to replace many 3rd party solutions with one integrated one. Bomgar provides PAM, RDP, Password storage vault, and tokenless 2 factor among other features. All of this and it does them ALL well!.

Comments: We've been using Bomgar for a few years now and have to say it's the best I've used (and I've used a lot). Each release of the software it just keeps getting better and the latest has introduced a web rep console that is helping our peripatetic engineers the most. The other BIG win for Bomgar is their support - even after being a customer for 3 years, the support is still second to none and their desire to keep me happy is more akin to them still in the pre-sales stages trying to sell me the product!

Pros: easy to use, easy to connect

Cons: High price

Overall: Though its primary task is to provide remote connection but it can do much more than that. You can use the screen sharing for training or conference meeting, remote control to resolve/diagnose computer, chat along with it, multi-screen support etc. No video sharing, though. The price is high.

Pros: Ease of use, flexibility, configurability

Cons: pricing is a bit high, but it's concurrent licensing so you don't need a license per user.

Overall: Bomgar provides software that does more than just chat and remote control, it has advanced queuing abilities, automated routing to get you to the rep that has the skills to solve your issues, it has the ability to connect to machines on local and remote networks using RDP or using the native client, as well as Intel Vpro. Computer diagnosis, multi-screen support, it really has everything you need to connect to and use, a computer as if you were sitting right in front of it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Bomgar development is very responsive, if they don't have it or can't do it, let them know.

Comments: We love Bomgar. Our customers love it (they barely know what it is, they just click a couple of times and POOF! we are connected to their PC).
The Jump Clients allow us to have immediate access to their servers. It is reliable. It is simple. The interface is good. The chat integration is solid. BUT, no video. I am sad about that and after talking with support (also pretty good), it does not appear that video integration is anywhere in Bomgar's future. It is a bit pricey compared to other options, but this is truly a case of getting what you pay for. Money WELL SPENT!!

Pros: Ease of use.

Overall: I use Bomgar to connect to my customers to assist with trouble shooting their technical problems and questions. I also use it to share my screen with them to do training seminars. The file transfer component is easy to use. My experience with the product has been very positive and would recommend it to anyone.

I use this software occasionally as part of my work.

Comments: Once connected to the customer's computer you can see what the problem is and fix it. There are several way to initiate a connection, but that can be tricky with customers who are very unfamiliar with using computers. For the majority of users in Western Europe and USA it isn't a problem.
