You’ll need to think of your use case to determine which Splashtop product is your best TeamViewer alternative. Below are the primary use cases of remote access and remote support, and which Splashtop product is the better alternative.

For individuals and business professionals who want to access their computers remotely…

Splashtop Business Access is the best alternative to TeamViewer. With the Splashtop Business app, you can remotely access and control your Windows and Mac computers. You can access them from any computer, tablet, or mobile device running on Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS.

So why is Splashtop Business Access better than TeamViewer? It costs less, a lot less in fact. Splashtop Business Access starts at $5/month per user, while TeamViewer is $49/month per user*. That’s a 90% saving!

With Splashtop Business Access, you’ll have secure access to your computers, and access to top features like file transferring and remote printing.

For MSPs and IT/Support professionals who want to provide remote support on users’/customers’ devices…

Splashtop SOS+10 and SOS Unlimited are your best TeamViewer replacement options. These two Splashtop packages are ideal because they give you the ability to provide both attended and unattended support.

Again, cost is a big reason why Splashtop is better than TeamViewer. Splashtop SOS+ and SOS Unlimited only cost $19/month and $34/month (respectively) per concurrent technician per year. On the other hand, TeamViewer can run anywhere from $49/month to $199/month*. Plus you have to pay an extra $32.90/month for mobile device support, and $99/month for concurrent users. This makes Splashtop a much cheaper alternative.

Other Splashtop advantages include being able to have 10 concurrent sessions per technician (only 3 with TeamViewer) and being able to access unlimited unattended computers with SOS Unlimited (only 200 with TeamViewer). Plus, Splashtop includes all the top features in TeamViewer such as file transfer, remote print, chat, and user management.

What Customers Said After Switching From TeamViewer to Splashtop

There’s a reason why we say Splashtop is the top TeamViewer Alternative. Thousands have already switched from TeamViewer to Splashtop and never looked back. Here’s a recent testimonial quote from one IT professional who recently switched:

“I have been in IT for 20 years and I know a good product when I find one. From a support perspective I could not have asked for a better tool. I get in and get it done. [Splashtop] is awesome and it’s reliable as hell. After using TeamViewer this program rocks its socks off. Unlike TeamViewer you’re not trying to be everything for everyone and it just works. You are reasonably priced as well, with TeamViewer wanting everything including my first born. I love the product and have recommended it to others I know in the industry.”

— Stuart Livingstone, NuWave Backup

Here’s another recent customer quote from someone who switched to Splashtop:

The killer-feature is definitely the live screen viewing with AirPlay on iOS. A lot of my customers use iPhones and iPads and with TeamViewer I never could really help, because the user wasn’t able to explain what he/she saw. Now I can see it too. The ability to remote control Android devices is a deluxe bonus.

— Lars M. Schreiber, L’AVENIR e.K.

Lower cost, feature list, and high performance are the reasons most commonly mentioned when customers tell us why they prefer Splashtop over TeamViewer.
