Thank you for your review, Randall! Yes, so far RU is only available for Windows (as of August 2017). We are working on adding Mac support soon, and in the future we are also going to add full-fledged Linux support.

Great value for money remote management software

2018-06-27

Being able to offer my customers a remote support solution for minimal to no cost as a startup business, until I can afford a more expensive solution with better feature sets. I can still offer the features of the big guys for little to no additional cost to my business.

Pros

Has a great feature set, and love being able to package up the remote endpoint with my own white labelling.

Cons

A scale feature to match the connection speed would be handy that changes the quality of the view based on connection speed.

Thank you for the review! Regarding the instabilities - in version 6.9 we implemented some fixes that should improve connection performance.

Regarding auto-adjusting the quality, this feature is also in development and will be available in the future updates.

Ígor Sira

One of the best remote support softwares, full of useful add-ons

2018-07-12

It allowed me to work from home with the small business that I have in my mother's house that is in another city, because by this means we can work together on the same PC and see together our administration and HR software, live chat and even record the work session

Pros

We know what we are looking for in remote support software but "Remote Utilities" offers a wide range of options that highlight it over others, such as: + possibility to record in video the entire remote session + possibility to manage which type of session to use according to the quality or speed of the internet connection (even lower the video quality to 2bits or in black and white) + different modes of connection, from total control, only see, control of the windows registry, tasks and services, inventory manager (see features of the pc only, that is, the session will only bring this information and nothing else) + the so required drag and drop function to access the clipboard in a simple and easy way

Cons

to be so complete I only saw a fault and that is that the installer comes separately, one for who will make the connection and another for who will receive it, although this allows to maintain a scheme of "support-end user" can become cumbersome to install and configure for an inexperienced end user.

Frankly, it just can't get much better than this!

2019-04-20

Close to perfect!

Pros

Remote Utilities is very secure and full-featured and flawless in its operation...

Cons

The only down side I have seen is when a customer who is a complete computer novice tries to install the software. The ID# is sometimes hard for them to find.

Remote Utilities is very functional, but not as clean and organized as some

2017-12-05

Doesn't have many costs, no financial costs It is very functional in many ways

Pros

It is simple and fast, usually You can do more than remote control: view, execute, view taskmgr, transfer files RU Viewer saves all the devices in a directory, allowing fast connections

Cons

The host GUI is not as user-friendly as it is functional The clipboard is not automatically synced when controlling a computer.

I use Remote Utilities to support a client that I can't add to my main remote viewer software.

2018-05-10

It is an incredibly good value for up to 10 clients considering the cost (free!) Further, I can use this product along with another remote viewer that is already installed on the computers accessed, and there is no conflict.

Pros

It also offers a very uncrowded interface, but lots of the options are easily accessible with a right-mouse click.

Cons

I can't really think of any cons. They could maybe make their control panel a little more intuitive from first glance, and also update the look a little more. Their cost for the paid plans seems a little more in line (pricey) with the big guys of the remote viewers but is still cheaper for the number of clients you can have.
