Logmein Central alternative 2018

Read our updated LogMeIn Central Alternative 2019 post that covers the new pricing here.

LogMeIn Central is a product that lets IT and support teams remotely access and provide support to all computers under their responsibility. Lately, thousands of LogMeIn Central customers have been looking for the best alternative to LogMeIn Central due to their huge price hikes over the past few years. There are several LogMeIn Central alternatives on the market today, but Splashtop Remote Support is consistently ranked as the best alternative based on price, performance, and features.

In fact, LogMeIn Central’s pricing is so high that customers who switch to Splashtop save anywhere from 70% to 80%. Since 2015, LogMeIn has continually raised the price of their Central product. The price increases didn’t just affect new customers either. Existing customers had to pay the new prices if they wanted to renew their subscription.

LogMeIn Central isn’t the only remote support tool available. There are many LogMeIn alternatives out there. If you’re looking for one that will provide the same top features that LogMeIn Central has, with fast connections, and without the high price, Splashtop Remote Support is the solution you’re looking for.

Here’s a comparison of Splashtop Remote Support versus LogMeIn Central and why Splashtop is the best alternative.

Why Splashtop is This Year’s Best LogMeIn Central Alternative For You

You’ll Pay Less

LogMeIn Central costs more than double what it did in 2015. That’s over a 100% price increase in just three years. LogMeIn Central’s Base Plan starts at $960/year for just 25 computers.  To get additional features found in their three add-ons, you’d have to pay an extra $540/year to $564/year each add-on for just 25 computers. The more computers you need to manage, the higher those prices go.

Splashtop Remote Support has always been fairly priced. Plus, since Splashtop doesn’t raise their prices every year like LogMeIn has, Splashtop Remote Support is significantly lower priced than LogMeIn Central does today.

Splashtop Remote Support Plus has all the same top features found in the LogMeIn Central Base Plan. Splashtop Remote Support Plus starts at $299/year for 25 computers. That’s about 70% less than what you’d pay for LogMeIn.

It doesn’t matter which package you compare or how many computers you need to support. In every case, Splashtop is lower priced than LogMeIn. As a matter of fact, Splashtop is much, much lower in price than LogMeIn.

You Can Access More Computers and Get the Top Features

When comparing Splashtop Remote Support against LogMeIn Central, lower price does not translate to worse performance or less features. Splashtop Remote Support’s award-winning engine powers fast connections in real-time with HD quality and sound. You won’t have to worry about slow connection times or lag with Splashtop.

As far as features go, Splashtop not only offers the same top features that LogMeIn Central does, with certain packages you’ll get even more with Splashtop.

Splashtop Remote Support Plus includes the top features found in LogMeIn Central Base Plan, such as file transferring, remote printing, and blank screen. However, one big advantage for Splashtop Remote Support is that the Plus package also gives you the ability to provide no-install attended (ad-hoc) support. LogMeIn Central does not offer that feature.

Splashtop Remote Support Premium gives even more additional features such as configurable alerts/actions, Windows updates, system inventory, event logs, and remote command. To get all those features with LogMeIn Central, you’d have to purchase all three additional add-ons. That would make your starting price $2,628/year for 25 computers, compared to Splashtop Remote Support Premium starting at $479/year for 25 computers.

Finally, if you want to be sure that Splashtop is secure, you can rest assured knowing that all connections are protected with 256-bit AES and TLS encryption. Plus, Splashtop is compliant with HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, SOC 2, and other industry standards and regulations.

You Won’t Suffer From Price Increases.

As LogMeIn Central customers have learned the hard way, pricing can change over time. In LogMeIn’s case, pricing has gone up tremendously in the past few years.

On the other hand, Splashtop has not increased their prices. Plus, when you purchase Splashtop Remote Support, your price is locked in, meaning you’ll never be forced to upgrade.

There is nothing more frustrating than putting the work to set up a remote support infrastructure only to have your renewal cost doubled out of nowhere and not having the budget to keep up. Save yourself the frustration and switch to Splashtop.

In addition to being easily deployed and scaled, Splashtop gives me excellent performance even over sketchy connections.”
