Ready in seconds, no installation required, easy and user friendly UI, multiple monitor support

2018-05-17

possibility for fast user support, the user has a simply and a easy to use UI, not overloaded with functions that you didn`t need, more performant as other softwares

Pros

Additional should be also mentioned the "Prompt for Permission" and the "TLS Encryption" feature

Cons

At the moment the Applications is only available in English and French - I hope some other languages would be come soon For me personally the function to show all monitors at once (if you connected to a client with multiple monitors) is missing

Smooth UI, fast and user friendly - perfect for remote support

2018-12-11

We searched for a small and user friendly tool to support end users.

Pros

-) Clean and smooth user interface -) different authentication modes -) connection over LAN and WAN -) Free & Enterprise Version -) mobile Apps available

Cons

Honestly I can't say a word aout con's because, if you have a point and ask for it on the support channels, the whole support team has a open ear for your suggestions and try their best to statisfy their customers

Top Class

2018-03-28

Pros

It's like Microsoft Remote Desktop Manager but on steroids this is the best in the class for remote desktop management and password control.

Cons

The pricing can be quite expensive but is the best in the class. Searching through remote connections can be a pain at times due to how the search function works but apart from them I don't have many cons for this software.

One of the easiest remote support Tools

2018-05-03

The first time i tested the software, was still in beta.

Pros

You may start to support or being supported.

Cons

So easy that i think some stuff were not available, but they're in places that are really easy to forget to check.

great alternative to team viwer

2018-03-28

Pros

I really like the UI, it is easy and straight forward to explain over the phone to setup a connection for tech support

Cons

WAYK requires administartor rights to run. While this is not an issue for most standard users, some enterprise setups might have an issue with standard users having the ability to install and run applications as administraor.

Wayk Now Is Up To The Task

2018-08-14

Wayk Now has evolved a lot since its first release and its current feature set allowed us completely replace other remote control solutions.

Pros

Wayk Now is very easy to download, install and run, and as We use remote control solutions mostly for end-user support, those are very important characteristics.

Cons

In a few occasions, connections to remote computers over the Internet required more than one attempt to complete.

This is an awesome alternative to the market

2018-12-28

Pros

There are really listing to their customers, and are adding features all the time. This is a very light product, very easy to use, and works on all platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Cons

The product is still really new, and a couple feature are still missing, like unattended access for Linux.

Easy to use and FREE

2018-05-10

Pros

It's better than team viewer and works great for remote support. It's even good for business use.

Cons

It's still a new product that needs some maturity behind it before it will be truly enterprise-ready, but the team at devolutions is top notch and I'm positive it will be there in no time!

Great system when you have the paid version

2019-06-07

It helps me to reach my computer or a client PC from home or the office and I don't have to travel to each machine.

Pros

If you plan to support someone for a distance and do it often.

Cons

The system does seem to cost alot for a small group and it requires a yearly subscription. But with those the system has alot of features.

Datacenter Administrator

2018-07-31

Pros

It is used by me and my team to support users.

Cons

Administrator rights: It's always asking for admin password when I have to run the software. This is not good - we are not admins on our computers.

As a longtime user of other remote control tools

2018-12-12

I really like how easy it is to use and understand.

Pros

It is lightweight and easy to deploy without missing out on functionality.

Cons

The only thing I've been missing is the unattended remote control option and that is available in the licensed version (I have only been using the free version so far).

Very easy to use, fast, and convenient!

2018-04-19

I'm easily able to connect to my PC when necessary. If I have to fix an issue after hours, I can easily launch the program on my PC OR the app on my phone and connect from anywhere!

Pros

I love how easy it is to use!

Cons

I had to manually open a hole in my firewall to get it to work. To do this, I had to look up what ports the application uses and then log into my wifi router and setup port forwarding.
