Dameware overview

Dameware is a cloud-based tool that helps IT professionals deliver support and issue resolution remotely. Key features include remote access to sleeping/powered-off computers, system information and session details. The application uses encryption protocols, two factor authentication and multilevel permissions to secure user data. A communication module enables IT teams to connect with end users and discuss issues via chat and VoIP. Dameware’s ticketing system keeps track of support requests and lets IT staff add notes and assign tasks.

Dameware comes with a system information functionality which gathers data such as BIOS, device details, Windows event logs and updates. It allows network teams to store and share troubleshooting information such as screenshots and session records. Support staff can view multiple monitors in a workstation and use a switch to toggle between screens. With the reporting engine, managers can track the help desk team’s performance on the basis of technician information and an end-user survey summary.

I can be connected to multiple PC's at once including servers, with full console level access. I can lock the remote mouse and keyboard. Dameware Remote Support has allowed me to be in many places at once. End user support experience is great, and server support is good as well. I can select multiple domains and setup favorite machines, for those trouble spots we all know we have. The ability to have access to the registry, logs sessions and shares and much more has enabled me countless hours saved. The licensing is good. I get to install on my desktop and laptop as one user license. It is Active Directory connected so you have easy access to every client on your network including servers. You get full console level control, plus other features like being able to from the Remote support console stop services, look at event logs and even run remote command line scripts.

lots of time savings everywhere. being able to do 90% of my workload without leaving my desk is amazingThe amount of time saved in my day by this tool is invaluable. I use the MRC mostly and daily, but the RS tools are equally valuable even if I do not use them as much. the insight I can gain from the RS tools is amazing. the ability to remove services on the fly is amazing. running remote command prompt also a time saver. I realize there are tools out there that can do all these but having them all together in one place is such a time saver. I could go on and on with what I love about these products

Easy of remote support. Ease of installation. Ability to see remote users desktop. Lightweight install Always running service. I have used Dameware for over 10 years now, and it is hands down, the most powerful, easiest to use, most stable remote control software there is. The MSI creation tool makes it easy to deploy. The ability to see remote screens exactly as the user does is invaluable for software troubleshooting. The speed to connect and support users is great for a tech to be more efficient and not run around all day solving minor issues that can be centrally resolved.

Dameware allows our support technicians to quickly connect with remote users PC's for troubleshooting and assistance. 99% of remote connections issues are easily resolved using the remove/install service option from within the Dameware console. Dameware along with its NT Utilities suite has allowed us to streamline our support process reducing trouble ticket SLA while increasing customer satisfaction. Pulls network and PC info from Active Directory. Easy to setup and customize your support experience. Support for mulitiple domains as well as connection to non AD computers. Full service portal allows Technical Support Professionals to troubleshoot and assist remote PC's with few limitations. I support multiple sites with over 300 workstations per site, Dameware is always my initial go-to software for remote support over local network as well as VPN. Hands down one of the best remote support suites I have used.

I like the fact that I can remote into a computer very quickly, get the task finished and get out. This software makes my job less stressful. I can be "remoted" into 50 computers at the same time, if needed. (really, I've had to do this before)
