Best LogMeIn Central Alternative for 2020

Need a better alternative to LogMeIn Central? Splashtop offers better pricing, faster performance, and the top features needed in a remote support solution.

Best LogMeIn Central Alternative 2020

LogMeIn Central is a product that lets IT support and MSPs remotely access and provide support to their managed computers. However, IT professionals have been looking for better alternatives 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 praised by users as the best alternative based on price, performance, and features.

When it comes to pricing, LogMeIn Central’s price is so high that customers who switch to Splashtop save anywhere from 70% to 80% on their annual subscription cost. That translates to hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in savings each year.

Since 2015, LogMeIn has continually increased the price of their Central product, including just last year. The price increases haven’t just affected new customers either. Existing customers have had their renewal costs increased as well (see our case study on how EPAD IT had their LogMeIn Central subscription cost doubled, pushing them to switch to Splashtop where they saved over 70%).

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 found in LogMeIn Central, has fast connections, and doesn’t have a history of high prices or price increases, then 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

Between 2015 and 2018, the price for LogMeIn Central more than doubled. That’s over a 100% price increase in just three years.

Currently, LogMeIn Central’s Base Plan is listed at $80/month (billed annually at $960/year) for just 25 computers.  To get the additional features found in Security, Automation, and Insight add-ons, you’d have to pay an extra $540/year or $564/year for each add-on for just 25 computers.

And those prices are just for 25 computers. If you’re managing more computers, your cost is going to be much higher.

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

The Splashtop Remote Support Plus package has all the same top features found in the LogMeIn Central Base Plan. Splashtop Remote Support Plus starts at $25/month (or $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. You can cut costs and save thousands by choosing Splashtop over LogMeIn Central.

You Can Access More Computers and Get the Top Features

When comparing Splashtop Remote Support against LogMeIn Central, you’ll know that you won’t be sacrificing performance by choosing Splashtop. 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 drag-and-drop file transfer, remote print, chat, blank screen, and more. 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 to provide break/fix services to devices not managed under your account. LogMeIn Central does not offer that feature.

Splashtop Remote Support Premium has all the features found in the Plus package in addition to monitoring and management features such as configurable alerts/actions, Windows updates, system inventory, event logs, remote command, and more. 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 in 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 (Splashtop also offers easy migration from LogMeIn to Splashtop).
