"One of the best remote support tools in the market"

What do you like best?

I love ease of use for both, the support agent and customer, especially the way an agent can connect to the user's PC.

The software allows to resolve technical issues in very efficient manner by providing with all the necessary remote connectivity tools required for our day-to-day technical support work. We deal with customers from different age groups and technical skill sets, therefore being able to guide our customers to downloading and running Zoho Assist is very crucial, as it saves our time and energy.

Another good feature is built-in chat, sometimes we may lose our phone connection and chat comes in really handy. From time to time we may need to send large files and Zoho Assist allows to easily transfer files from our desktop to the customer's PC.

I also like that it's portable, most of the users we deal with prefer no to install anything, so they can simply download the application and run it on their PC right away,

When compared to similar remote support in the market, I would definitely recommend using Zoho Assist in daily technical support operations.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit sluggish at times and not compatible with all of the systems, I suggest including support for Chrome OS, as many users are using Chromebooks these days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to check out Zoho Assist via their official website and trust me you'll fall in love with it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We assist our customers with various technical issues, mostly it's downloading, installing, uninstalling, activating software or registering their account at our online store.

"Assist Anyone anytime! "

What do you like best?

Zoho is simple to use and works at any Operarional system I have ever tried. I can simply generate a number and my client access my widget and downloads the remote access software Which gets deleted after section is finished.

What do you dislike?

My client has to allow Administrator access more than once in the same section and sometimes that gets annoying. I also did not like When my clients have a hard time downloading the sofrware after I have given then my session number, they have to click transfer but after that the software takes a little while to run When speaking of computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend zoho to add extra resources while remote accessing a device, and also show a log small winodws of everything the technician is doing while connected to the client's computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solve anything with Zoho, since I can restart clients computer and wait for it to come back, I can Solve Printer issues, I can solve even DNS issues sometimes, Zoho does connect right after internet is back and running and I don't even notice my session has been cut off.

What Remote Support solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"An often complicated process designed with simplicity in mind."

What do you like best?

Extremely easy to deploy company wide. Even for those that are fairly computer illiterate, all I need to do is simply send a link to their email. From there, they easily follow the instructions provided, and I am able to quickly connect and offer support. Unlike another very popular application I used to use, I have never had a client not be able to figure it out. So offering remote technical support has become a much better experience for the client (and for me!). Finally, the pricing is very reasonable for the features.

What do you dislike?

Would like it if they would make it possible to transfer more than just one file at a time with the file transfer tool. Sometimes we need to transfer several files and choosing just one at a time can make it cumbersome and time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free to try, and I highly recommend you do. I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to provide computer and training support for company's employees (and every once in a while, I use it to help out a friend whose machine has been compromised or social media account has been hacked. lol).

"Like to access computer single click"

What do you like best?

I like it because it is very simple to setup and very easy to understand by non techie person. it is more reliable then team viewer and very easy to install client agent by deployment., and i can access all over world and multiple technician can access , i love price wise as well . also liked central portal and i can buy lot of other applications under one login .speed is very fast to access unattended machines, i tried , team viwer, goto my pc which is very Expensive, LogMeIn and lot of other programs . but i loved Assist Zoho.Great value for money to remotely assist and ad-hoc access to our in-house and BYOD computers. We're also now using unattended access which has been a great time-saver and works reliably even when changing users and rebooting. Includes easy connection options via web browser.We manage our time more efficiently, and our users are far more productive with their time both with and away from their laptop while the work is being done.

What do you dislike?

right now I am in love with it. i am very excited with this software, i did not see any dislikes

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a clean interface, easy access, and a product your users do not have to think through to use - this is hte product to use. It's VERY simple, yet very powerful and effective.

"PERFECT FOR Remote Help Desk Support"

What do you like best?

Unattended access has drastically changed how my small IT department (3 employees) handle our 200+ employees. We are able to work on our users laptops without them having to be on spot, and this works out well for all of us. We manage our time more efficiently, and our users are far more productive with their time both with and away from their laptop while the work is being done.

What do you dislike?

You have to set up a wake up timer within the BIOS of each machine, and that can only be done with laptops on site. While I set up new laptops going out the door, I cannot set a laptop to wake on LAN if it's already out in the field.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a clean interface, easy access, and a product your users do not have to think through to use - this is hte product to use. It's VERY simple, yet very powerful and effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to fix Windows Update issues, add software, and reconfigure laptops for new users when a former user has left the company. Only 60 users are on campus - the vast majority of our users are out in the field. Being able to support remotely has kept the help desk from being swamped on days when our employees come to the home office for meetings.

"Surprised at the features for the Price"

What do you like best?

Affordability, ease of connection, having the ability to download to my customers a customer widget to connect to me (at least after generating a code), excellent support their 'chat' support is very responsive.

What do you dislike?

not having a widget for the customers to directly connect to me without generating a code first, can only receive 40 files at a time (got around this by zipping up the files i want to upload). file transfers can be made a little easier (side by side folder view for transfers)

Recommendations to others considering the product

zoho has a nice trial program and i also really like their 'chat' support, they have been very responsive, try it out

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a software developer so it allows me to connect to my clients to transfer files, update, and train. the main benefit is the amount of money i am saving over my previous provider.

"Excellent Remote Option"

What do you like best?

While there are several aspects about Zoho Assist that I like, I think that I like the level of customer service I receive the best! Each time I contact Zoho for assistance, I receive a quick, response, which is NOT an auto-reply. They are extremely quick, and provide exceptional service to address my needs.

What do you dislike?

So far, there isn't anything I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist offers FULL functionality during the trial period, to include the widget for your website (easier to send clients to your website). Not to mention, there is a full section for reporting through the portal!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I provide software support for a very intricate system. I NEED remote support capabilities to assist our clients, and don't want to spend a fortune for it. Zoho even offers a widget that we've incorporated into our website.

"Value for useful and reliable product"

What do you like best?

Great value for money to remotely assist and ad-hoc access to our in-house and BYOD computers. We're also now using unattended access which has been a great time-saver and works reliably even when changing users and rebooting. Includes easy connection options via web browser.

What do you dislike?

Reboot and reconnect isn't always reliable when shared via link but reliability has improved recently (unattended access reboot work fine). Users with repeat sessions often re-download the local app rather than the app running automatically. Desktop technician app does not appear on desktop (e.g. alt-tab) and can't pin to taskbar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider using unattended access where possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our computers are in different locations, up to 1000 km away, so remote access for technical support is vital. Zoho Assist enables me to setup new PCs, troubleshoot and reconfigure remotely. Unattended access has simplified access and support.

"Zoho Assist Delivers "

What do you like best?

Zoho assist is super easy to use, works even in remote locations like China and is consistently reliable. While I've been a Teamviewer user for many years and like it a lot, Zoho is certain to give TV a major run for their money becuase its way cheaper - $100 for 25 computers per year as opposed to $40 a month and it does all the same basic functions needed for remote computer administration

What do you dislike?

I had one computer that I had accidentally uninstalled the agent but it was not clear for me from the console that this was the error. I ultimately figured out the problem (while I was in country thank goodness) but that was a little confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give Zoho a test. If your situation is like ours as a growing SMB, I think you will find Zoho a valuable addition to your toolbox

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote administration of desktops, laptops and servers in the USA and Asia.

"Cheapest solution for remote support, work fine for price and meet our business needs"

What do you like best?

Cheapest solution for remote support of a large quantity of business computer. I also really like the centralized web console where you can manage groups of computers. I also like the remote WOL option, even if it's not perfectly working in all cases. I also really enjoy the fact that I can give a remote access to my console to others technicians. Overall every if Zoho Assist have some limitations, it really meet our business needs.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, Zoho Assist in general is not as smooth, fast and convenient as other competitive remote support solutions, remote computer display is blurry (even at maximum quality level) and cursor movement is very "jerky". Also, there's way less customizing options for speed, image quality, remote sound, etc., like from other competitors solutions. I also deplore the lack of a real standalone support client on Mac computer (if the technician is using a Mac) and also the Windows technician app is not that much impressive neither, it's more like an app that relay on a web interface on background.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist is definitely a great product but it surely need some technical improvements to be as efficient as other competitors such as TeamViewer, Gotoassist, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Need to remotely support 75 computers, both Mac and Windows that are used on the road from several locations, making use of Windows RDP or Apple ARD impossible. I also work with a remote technician which is a sub-contractor for our company and then I can give him a remote technician access to my computers group for remote support of my computer.

"Total Control at a fair cost"

What do you like best?

The features available are scalable to any level of networking. We will deploy for a large network this week, after trying a dozen options. The cost if reasonable enough to not cut into the margins.

What do you dislike?

Understandable, but on slower connection, tends to disconnect but reconnections are auto, so not a biggie.

(and very rarely required to connect to a client w inadequate bandwidth)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you've been shopping them out, and need control of business, corporate networks, we feel that Zoho can be the most practical and efficient option. We had decided to build our own remote service for our business and lodge on one of our co-lo servers, But so long as Zoho continues to perform like this, and ===the aforementioned policy to help those who can reciprocate, became more cost effective than building our own. We did not have the time to support a similar product if we built it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote access. Dashboard to monitor all aspects of network(s). Using tools to address and identify issues, and upgrade needs.

"The right remote access tool for you!"

What do you like best?

The cost of the subscription is very budget friendly. The ability to have unattended access and technician initiated sessions is great. File transfer, chat, session recording and technician feedback is important. All of the features you want in an easy-to-use package.

What do you dislike?

It is all browser-based. I would like a desktop client for technicians in a call center. I would like the remote user give feedback for review at the end of the session. In full screen - actual size mode the pointer moves the screen too quickly. It was very difficult to navigate the screen. The fit to screen mode was almost to small to work with but I managed to complete the task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist is easy to use. I recommend using the Free version for as long as possible. I needed the features of the Standard 1 technician version with the additional Unattended sessions add-on. The session navigation is different from TeamViewer where all of the actions are on the left-side of the screen but can be hidden for more viewing area. Full screen mode is an issue as the pointer moves the screen too quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Standard remote user assistance. System updates, software installation. Saves on drive time and return visits.

"Amazing, Easy, and Professional"

What do you like best?

I am extremely happy with Zoho as a whole, not even just Zoho Assist. The application is quick to deploy, easy for my customers to either do On-Demand or Unattended Access, which is GREAT from a technology standpoint. The best part as to our growing small business, is the price point. We do not have to worry about spending literally THOUSANDS of dollars on a Cloud or Self-Hosted solution, and I'm talking over $7k for some of these solutions. I extremely love the fact that they offer a month-to-month plan. How are you supposed to grow as a business unless you have capital backing. Zoho makes it easy and allows for my company to grow with intention.

What do you dislike?

I really don't like filling out this particular section, because there's not much of anything to complain about Zoho. Their support team, after requesting an extension and putting in notes about having issues with Mac OS computers not allowing you at the login screen to move the mouse, so an unattended wake-up process isn't the best (with the most recent Mojave OS, so by the time you read this review, it might be fixed)...they CALLED me, and left a voice mail advising of my comments, and some workarounds. Who does that?? THAT'S why I choose Zoho, they truly try to help and care.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a growing business, and don't want to spend a huge amount of money on something that this software can already do, and you want really good support all day and night, go with Zoho Assist. It is WAY above the rest.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been able to grow with intention, and offer virtual support, not needing colleagues or associates to be on site all the time at offices, saving me and my company a lot of money. We still do in-person visits every so often, but the amount of money we have been able to save with travel costs ALONE has been incredible, and I cannot truly thank Zoho for offering such a quality product, professional looking, at a great price point, so that someday, my company can help and hire more people.

"Excellent product and customer service."

What do you like best?

I like how Zoho Assist has a smooth join support session procedure that is very easy to setup with the customer. The quality and speed is great and is also customizable to adapt to different internet connections. Meaning you can adjust to quality vs speed or vice versa while traveling and using less preferable internet connections.

What do you dislike?

Lack of IOS support feature. Meaning pc/android/mac support to a ios device. This feature is necessary due to a lot of people who would require support are on IOS devices due to their simplicity and easy GUI.

I also don't like how the techs clipboard isn't used to copy and paste into the customers computer. This would be a simple yet handy tool for the typical "Call the IT guy for your username and password" situation where the IT specialist would simply copy and paste the credentials into the client computer and then later send an email with those credentials for future reference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fast and efficient, and above all cost effective!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have mobile sales reps working all over the globe. I use your great product to solve any and all computer issues ranging from virus removal to a simple forgot my password situation. Zoho is also an excellent tool to use as a way to give a tutorial remotely and watch their screen as they ask questions etc.

"affordable remote software. "

What do you like best?

Mac and Windows support as well as mobile. The customer portal and easy re branding, easy to link to support for clients

What do you dislike?

No MAC application have to use a web browser, and lack of unattended computer access from Mobil app. Would like to see a better way to install unattended access software

Recommendations to others considering the product

the free trial does not show all the benefits that the software can provide. Best priced software that I have found so far.

If you plan on using the mobile app to access any computer with the unattended access software installed you will need purchase the unattended subscription.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connecting to remote customers for support needs. With this being a web based software I no longer have to switch to a Windows computer to use the software and the connection speed is much improved.

"Fast, dependable and very user friendly"

What do you like best?

Easy for end users to use and connect, fast and responsive. Clients find it easy to use and the overall system works great. You can implement a direct link on your website for your clients to enter a code from where the software will then download and install, it will also then connect automatically to your end.

What do you dislike?

Installation instructions for end user side could be easier and faster

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are well positioned with cost and the product offering is really good. You will be more than happy with this product.

"A great remote software for such a low price"

What do you like best?

ZOHO Assist offers almost everything that other remote softwares offer but at a fraction of the cost. The software is very reliable and easy for our clients to install.

What do you dislike?

There is 1 feature that I would love to have and that is the ability to draw on the remote computer screen. We use the remote software for client trainings and often draw with the cursor on the remote screen to point our clients in the right direction. This would be probably the only thing that I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho offers a free trail and there is practically no setup. There should be no reason why you wouldn't want to evaluate this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our clients are based all over Canada and we provide personalised training and support. With Zoho Assist, we can quickly setup a stable remote connection. Our clients find it easy to install and the issues with security permissions does not affect Zoho like it does with other remote softwares we have used.

"Good product at great price"

What do you like best?

Ability to connect to people on demand at a relatively low price.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if there was a native Mac client for the technician.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the trial first. I have been using the free version for some time and finally decided it was time to buy. The free version did pretty much everything I needed, but I thought for the price, it was worth it to pay for good software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I want to be able to give customers live support and see what they are seeing. The interface is simple to use and the customers have little trouble getting the software to run on their end.

"Easy of use, and fully featured"

What do you like best?

Multiple Screen capability & Unattended mode is very good. Point and click and you're in.

What do you dislike?

End users still need to download an agent

Recommendations to others considering the product

Performance is good. Like the Simplistic Interface for the List of computers that one has. It appears to work well with Windows, Mac from what I have seen. Did have an issue with a Mac at one point, and Support chased me to fix the issue, and kept wanting to test until it was resolved. This is unusual these days.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote Access capability. We use another Vendors product, but it is sometimes too complex to get people to be able to get a session connected. That just makes the Frustration levels rise. ZOHO's assist, still has a download of an agent to establish the session, but it does appear to be easier to use.

"Zoho Assist best companion for my CRM consulting business"

What do you like best?

I love its new remote access for iPhone and Android and its ability to have unattended remote sessions for your internal distributed IT infrastructure .

What do you dislike?

Needs better instructions for remote user ( client ) to install and engage a remote session.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist is an affordable well rounded remote support tool. This service comes with an outstanding support from Zoho team for all your support needs. Only advise for new users would be to create an invite email with detail instructions on what to expect and how to enable session ( reality is that NO ONE in the marketplace does it )

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Zoho Assist is fully integrated with my Zoho CRM Chat & Desk service tools for my clients who love our response times for paid service level agreements .

"Affordable remote support software"

What do you like best?

Zoho software is easy to install and allows me to support multiple organizations without costing too much.

What do you dislike?

I have not had any issues with the software that I could not figure out.

Zoho is a well put together system that allows admins to maintain multiple organizations without breaking the bank!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I multiple clients with multiple machines with a myriad hardware in between. Most will not pay for more expensive firewalls that allow remote support. Zoho is lightweight and easy to install on the client side. It also allows for grouping so multiple clients can be grouped accordingly.

"Reliable & Productive Application"

What do you like best?

Great value for money to remotely assist our computers which are leased or owned by org. Unattended access is great time-saver and works reliably even when changing users and rebooting. Includes easy connection options via web browser.

"Very interesting price, but it falls short in features."

What do you like best?

It's price. The multiple monitor support.

What do you dislike?

It's not that ease to use. At first, I did'nt knew where to go or wich tool to dowload to allow my peer to connect to my computer. The same happened to my coworker in order to download the required software to connect to my computer.

At least in the default configuration, there was no visible window, label or something in my screen that indicated me that my peer was still connected to my computer. We think it's vital for our customers to easily see if one of our technicians is connected to their computers at any time.

I got in touch with a Zoho representative with this issues and got no response.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate first, use in both directions, you as a technician and you as the person who recives support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a small ISV, we need a tool to give remote support to our users.

"Great alternative to Teamviewer, GoTo Assist, etc"

What do you like best?

Zoho Assist has many of the same great features you'd find in products like Teamviewer, but substantially cheaper. The unattended remote access deployment is light years easier than Teamviewer (and you don't have to buy the most expensive license to do it either). The mobile app works great, multiple monitor support, sending files, so far it has all worked flawlessly.

What do you dislike?

I can't really think of anything I don't like, even the tech support has been good thus far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to remote in to staff computers makes updating and support so much easier. I also love being able to quickly address things like "My email doesn't work" from my desk while working on other tasks.

"Managing desktop support costs"

What do you like best?

Have installed several remote support apps, use my mother as tester and she was able to install without calling me so I give Zoho hi marks for being user friendly but the cost was also important.

Was using Logmein and are charging $350 to manage 2 computers remotely.

What do you dislike?

Am concerned that ease of use may compromise security but so far I'm satisfied that Zoho is secure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stop considering and test Zoho for yourself, gives your remote access with a smaller footprint.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of use and cost make me decide to use Zoho for my business.

"Affordable remote support option for consultants"

What do you like best?

The software works well, is easy for the end users to launch, and the cost is reasonable per technician

What do you dislike?

The integration with other products in the Zoho environment could be tighter, but they are sufficient for most support calls.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is not intended for sales demos or on-line town hall meetings. If you need to do remote support for customers, it is an easy deployment and an affordable solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a number of business customers that require one-off support, most of the time through a remote screen sharing session. Zoho Assist is an affordable way for our team to support our customers in an effective manner.

What do you like best?

Easy to use. It allows file transfers. Reliable. I am able to attend to clients within minutes and solve their issues faster than it would take me just to get there by car.

I have not found anything I dislike. I did have an issue with billing but it was quickly resolved. Other than that, I have not found any faults.

The best value for remote service. It works well and keeps customer happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Zoho is the Best"

What do you like best?

I have been using Zoho Creator for over 4 years and now I got into their Zoho Assist remote services. I would say there is nothing better then Zoho as compared to other remote support services. The price is reasonable and support is excellent. I would say one day Zoho will become like Google.

Android and IOS version of Zoho Assist is not too good. They need to come up with unattended access.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend everyone to try Zoho Assist. I am sure no one would dislike. I used so many different remote softwares before but Zoho Assist is the answers to all what you want. Price wise is reasonable and less expense then other softwares.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are Management Company and have few offices in NY. It really helps us to login to various office computers.

"Good Tool for Economic Cost"

What do you like best?

The Small Size of the Zoho Installer App .EXE. I can sent via email attachment or share a download private link from my Cloud Accounts. Need to test the File Transfer to work like Copy/Paste/Cut using the internal Windows OS Commands. This is the most important part for me. If it cant do it then I need to find another software that can do it. The Full Screen size is not 100% Full Screen Size you have a big box on your left side which I don't find a way to close it and get my Full Screen at real Full Screen Size. Maybe Ill write an email to the company and request some changes to verify how Really Good their Project Team can be. Maybe need a smaller single run client that is below 1MB of size for a more fast and easy Transport and Download.

What do you dislike?

Little Slow in High Data Communication + Cant see the Real Full Size Scree

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cheap Price! Some extra features to test and verify how easy and fast it will work on my own needs and demands.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better Price for more options.

"Great value"

What do you like best?

The integrations with 3rd party Helpdesks like Zendesk. Saves so much time

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to have an on-premise app to manage unattended access and remote sessions.

Sending keyboard shortcuts is the big one on my wishlist but this maybe just an existing setting we haven't found yet it is still early doors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I tried this last year when our renewal with logmein was due and I have certainly noticed the progress, it is at a point where we can cope without the missing wishlist items and Zoho are certainly heading in the right direction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The major benefit is time saving with the Zendesk integration. One click for remote support of a new user is just a life saver.

Also monthly subscription is just amazing compared to logmein and Teamviewer who think they have you as a client forever and give no regard to price adjustment or our cashflow.

Nothing yet it works the same as GoToAssist at least how we use it i had a few complaints about speed in the begging but we have seep to resolve those issues might have been on out client side.

"Great functionality and easy to connect"

What do you like best?

It's really easy to get customers to connect, usually taking a matter of minutes - either by sending them to the website or emailing them directly from the system. It's easy to use and fully featured.

What do you dislike?

There is no "pause" session functionality which would be a welcome addition. Currently, we have to reconnect each time, which is only difficult when carrying out longer support issues on servers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very powerful and I would certainly recommend it. There are lots of features which puts it up there with the best solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are helping users with IT issues as well as servers. It's a powerful tool and works well for our purposes. It's also much better value than our previous solution.

"Easy Switch"

What do you like best?

We switched from ISL Online to Zoho Assist.. The easiest transition we have ever done! Our engineers love it! Very simple to use even before we have completed the online training.

What do you dislike?

We have had no issues with the software at all. When signing technicians up, there was an issue with .com and .eu addresses but that was sorted quickly by Puneesh on the support team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use for engineers and customers. Especially the widget that we placed on our website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We remote onto servers to check on call reporting, voice recording software and other CTI applications relating to business telecommunications

"Provides remote access both attended and unattended."

What do you like best?

As IT guys we like the fact that we can access stations unattended if the user is away. We also like the ability to provide assistance to people outside out network.

What do you dislike?

I have noticed that when I remote into my own station from home, and then try to establish another remote session from the target machine that it does not allow this capability where as LogMeIn does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist does what it is intended to. Plus, if you are looking for a good remote access tool that has both the Unattended Access and the ability to offer assistance to users outside of your network this tool will do the trick.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote trouble shooting of both users and server maintenance.

"Remote Support Review From a Professional"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use and speed of deployment best.

What do you dislike?

I wish that remote support worked more quickly once the connection is made to the remote computer. I would like more options for fine-tuning display properties, for example.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Zoho Assist remote support software to anyone looking for a lower-cost alternative to LogMeIn Central or Pro.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Zoho Assist remote I'm able to offer a basic remote-support solution to my clients that doesn't break the bank - mine or theirs. I like being able to embed a link in my website or email a link to customers for ad-hoc sessions.

I love being able to help my customers without having to leave my office. It has saved a lot of travel time between clients.

I don't have any dislikes the software is great.

"Remote Assist"

What do you like best?

Being able to only have one sign on makes it easier for the team to provide remote support.

Also, being able to group computers by customer and then secure each group provides security for individual customers.

What do you dislike?

Setting up groups was a bit hard to find. Tech Support helped solve this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They make it is easy to try this product. Definitely try this product before committing to something more expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product streamlines the remote access to our customer computers allowing us easy troubleshooting.

"Fast and Reliable Support with Zoho Assist"

What do you like best?

The low cost of this application works well for me because I do not believe that I have to spend a lot of money for something that I can use that will give tons of benefits. Zoho Assist is an example of that. For a limited price, it allows me to use it in different OS since it supports all operating systems.

I like the fact it uses increased speed and refresh rate so it helps me resolve different IT issues faster.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the fact that it does not work on my gadgets sometimes. I have to rely on the desktop app but it is not too reliable. It keeps on closing down and restarting. This wastes a lot of my time.

I have tried contacting their customer service support about this problem but I did not get any response from them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe that this is a software that can provide the support desk features that a lot of people are searching for. You can be sure that you will not spend too much on it. Whether you would choose the free version or the paid version, you will still get the assistance you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the fact that even if I am far away from my team, we are able to relay information with each other like as if we are meeting with each other face to face. This makes it easier to figure out if there are some things that need to be addressed immediately.

"Good enough."

What do you like best?

Price, ease of adding unattended computers.

What do you dislike?

Slow logging in, mobile app is mediocre.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared for a less than stellar mobile experience. The client being web-based is nice because there is nothing to install, but sometimes I have a issue connecting. The end user client is super easy to install. I love that it doesn't require any sort of logging in. When you download the unattended client, it is linked to your account already. Just a quick double-click, and the machine is added!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I manage a handful of small business' IT needs. They are in a couple different towns, so it is nice to have remote access.

"Excellent Product for Remote Assistance"

What do you like best?

After realizing the monthly cost of other remote support software (Yikes!) my husband who also works in IT turned me on to Zoho Assist. The application responds well, and has a fairly easy to use interface. I've been using their free tier - that's right, FREE - and it's let me help my customers with everything they've needed so far. Their tiered pricing lets me pay only for what I need, which is a big deal for my small business.

What do you dislike?

The graphic transmission isn't as high quality as I'm accustomed to with other applications, but is still very usable. I would not recommend this application for situations where high resolution or detailed colors are important (helping out with photo editing, for example), but since the vast majority of what I do is troubleshooting or tutorial related, this is simply a cosmetic issue for me. The only other issue I have is the time it takes to connect to an unattended system... but the fact an unattended installer is even offered is such a huge bonus that I'm quite happy even with the connection time being slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Assist offers a free trial, so there's no reason not to try it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a stay-at-home-mom, I started my business to keep my technical skills sharp, to bring in a modest income, and because I get a lot of personal benefit from helping people. Zoho Assist has given me a solution to help my customers from home, which lets me continue working and still be around my 1 year old daughter. It's a well thought out tool that can compete with other big players in the market, with a pricing model that works well with my variable income. It's let me provide services to my customers remotely, saving me travel time and babysitting costs/coordination, and letting my customers get help from the comfort of their own homes.

"Does exactly what I need"

What do you like best?

This software has basically all the features of GotoAssist for half the price for MORE users! It does everything I need it to do with unattended and regular support sessions

What do you dislike?

This remote interface is not as snappy as teamviewer or GotoAssist, but works just fine. I also cannot pin the UI to the taskbar and it doesn't use a standard windows interface. These are minor, as it works as I need it

Recommendations to others considering the product

I works

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able with Zoho to support my unattended locations as I need to and provide on the fly support for any old person who calls. This is all part time, so doing this for a lower cost helps keep me in the black

"Simplicity at its best"

What do you like best?

I'm a minimalist and I love the simplicity of the app. It's very easy to elevate your privileges as so many admins need do. I love the unattended access and can surprise my teammates when they don't even need to enter a code to start a session.

What do you dislike?

I really wish I could remote into iOS. I love the remote to Android feature, but have 90% iOS in the field.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote help desk issues. Am even able to correct user expectation by teaching them how to use certain pieces of software. I realize that I can fully support my team remotely without having to break the budget.

connecting to the computers with invitation is often a bit confusing for the less technical users.

use free option to evaluate before buying. ask support anything you miss or think you are missing. they are very cooperative.

"Excellent remote assist product."

What do you like best?

The product is very easy to use, does what it says simply and is a great price for the feature set. An invaluable tool for any remote assist.

What do you dislike?

So far I have no dislikes. The only problem I have encountered is the remote assist invitation email was not received. This could be due to the recipients email spam filter. This was minor as client joined the assist session by typing the url and session ID.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho assist should be at the top of your list for consideration. Although I am small user, the product seems to be geared to both large and small implementations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Supporting clients (either troublshooting computer issues or training sessions) without having to travel is a huge benefit and saves unnecessary costs. I am keen to use the remote assist on a mobile device as support in this area is becoming more ubiquitous.

"Zoho Assist, help your customers easily (and for free)"

What do you like best?

It allows you to take control of a distant computer and then make adjustments on your client SW, do a demo or an interactive training, for free. With this app I am able to make trainings with my clients or support, while they are watching what I do, and moreover, interacting, thus understanding better the lesson or the support I am giving them.

What do you dislike?

As a user of the free version, I don't have any dislike of the app. I don't know if it suits well the needs of an IT manager who should need multi user assist, as I don't have those needs and never used the app in that case.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I only can recommend it as a basic user, and it suits all my needs. To an IT manager who should be able to make more task with the app, I cannot say anything as I didn't used it that way

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for a way to make interactive trainings and customer service with my clients. Sharing your screen with the client and showing him the way to do things was not the solution because the client was passive. With Zoho Assist, I can show my client the way, and see if he understood by seeing him do the lesson I explained. Thanks to that the trainings are better understood by my clients. And when I use it for support, it allows me to see them acting and correct the errors they made.

What do you like best?

Its easy, the support staff is proactive and helpful, and the software so far has worked perfectly.

What do you dislike?

We are yet to find any major flaws.so far everything is working well. We have tried the unattended access, remote support, running as a service etc. and all these aspects seem to work very well so far. Initially had a couple glitches in installing, but the support team was able to walk us through them and resolve the issues quickly. So at this time, we do not have any complaints about the platform.

"Great app at a great price"

What do you like best?

The truth is, the best thing is the quality for the price. Compared to other big name remote support software, Zoho gives quality connections with the ability to do what we need to do (reboot, chat, transfer files, make notes, save chats). We also like the multiple ways for the user to enter the session id (local app, website, link, embedded in our help site).

What do you dislike?

The remote invites sometimes get stuck in quarantine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We did not have remote software so we were using free versions of things and RDP, which doesn't allow the user to see what you are doing or have any communication from tech to user.
