Is RemoteToPC a good LogMeIn Central alternative ?
All over the internet, you can see articles geared at people looking for alternatives to LogMeIn Central, and their suggestions are always the same old products like Teamviewer, Bomgar, ScreenConnect, Splashtop, etc… If an IT person is just looking for a remote connection client with competitive pricing, then those are valid alternatives, and some may claim that they are better than logmein, but none of them are a true LogMeIn Central alternative. Here’s why: Because central comes in 3 different tiers of service with varying levels of features: Central Basic, Plus and Premier. The Basic plan only offers a more basic set of features with an online Command Center. You have to select the Plus version (for more money) if you want the ability to copy files between PCs, and finally if you want any kind of Monitoring and Alerts, you must purchase Central Premier (for a lot more money!)
As IT people ourselves, and from some of the feedback we have had from customers, the ability to copy a file from one computer to another can be a critical need. For LogMeIn, they charge twice the money for this feature. When they first implemented their new pricing, it was file copying, and multi-monitor access that they used to force users up to their Plus plan. This was apparently too much for too many Basic plan customers, and they soon offered the multi-monitor feature back in their Basic plan, while leaving the ability to remotely copy a file in their Plus plan. LogMeIn’s Premier plan has robust monitoring and alerts for proactive monitoring of computer systems, but at more than 4 times the cost of their basic plan.
At the time this is being written, LogMein Central Pricing for 100 computers is: $699 a year for Basic, $1499 a year for Plus, and $2999 a year for Premier.
We built RemoteToPC as a low cost alternative that has many of the same Central features, but have deliberately modeled our pricing to beat out their lowest price, while also offering key features that they feature in their higher level plans. RemoteToPC has a Command Center and Remote Desktop Access similar to LogMeIn Basic, File Copy similar to LogMeIn Plus, and we even offer basic Alerts and Monitoring similar to LogMeIn Premier. All currently at $299 a year for a 100 system plan.
All of our Enterprise level plans include these features that Central plans do: Remote Access, User Management, Computer Grouping, Deployment, Computer Search, Online/Offline Status, 256-Bit SSL Encryption, Multi-Monitor Support, File Transfer, Alerts and Monitoring, Mobile Access to Alerts, Wake-On-Lan, Local Client Application, Remote Reboot, Safe-mode Reboot, and Premium Customer Support.
For the features we offer, we don’t think anyone can touch our pricing. We think that RemoteToPC is a new kind of product. One designed to give you the best experience by merging the core features of advanced RMM tools with a basic remote access client, and that’s priced at a very low cost. We don’t think the cost of IT tools should be punitive. We know what IT people want, and need, because RemoteToPC is built by IT people for IT people!
