In today's interconnected world, the ability to access and manage resources remotely has become more than just a convenience—it's a necessity. As businesses navigate the challenges of distributed teams, remote work, and the ever-present need for robust IT support, the demand for reliable and cost-effective remote access solutions has skyrocketed.
Splashtop Enterprise, a frontrunner in this domain, offers a suite of features tailored to meet the diverse needs of modern businesses. But what truly sets Splashtop apart is its innovative and cost-effective pricing model, designed to ensure businesses pay only for what they genuinely need.
In this blog, we'll explore Splashtop Enterprise's flexible licensing options and how they can lead to significant savings when compared to other remote access tools.Understanding Splashtop Enterprise's Offerings

In the dynamic landscape of business operations, it's evident that a one-size-fits-all approach rarely, if ever, meets the diverse needs of different organizations. As businesses evolve, so do their requirements. This evolution underscores the pressing need for a flexible licensing model:
Splashtop Enterprise's Flexible Licensing Model Explained
Varying Business Needs: Not all businesses operate the same way. Some might have a predominantly remote workforce, necessitating frequent remote access to company resources. Others might have a more centralized team but require robust IT support capabilities to manage a vast network of devices. The spectrum of needs is vast, and a rigid licensing model can often lead to unnecessary expenses or unmet requirements.
Scalability Concerns: As businesses grow, their remote access needs can change dramatically. A flexible licensing model allows businesses to scale their remote access solutions with their growth, ensuring they're neither overpaying nor under-equipped.
Budgetary Constraints: Every dollar counts in business, and investing in technology should yield a tangible return on investment. With a rigid pricing model, businesses might find themselves paying for features they don't use or lacking features they desperately need. A flexible model ensures that businesses only pay for what they use, optimizing their tech investments.
Splashtop Enterprise stands out not just for its robust feature set but also for its innovative approach to licensing. Recognizing the diverse needs of businesses, Splashtop has crafted a licensing model that offers flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Let's break down the two primary licensing options available:
End-User Licensing for Remote Work
Licensed per user: This model allows for up to 10 endpoints per user license. It's designed with the modern workforce in mind, ensuring that employees have the flexibility to access the resources they need, irrespective of their location.
Distributed Workforce Empowerment: Whether employees are in the office, at home, or on the move, they can securely access their work resources with high-performance, cross-platform remote access.
Single Sign-On (SSO): Simplifying access, SSO reduces the hassle of remembering multiple passwords and offers IT teams a centralized way to manage access permissions.
Advanced Features: From scheduled access and granular permissions to multi-monitor high-definition display and file transfers, Splashtop ensures a seamless remote work experience.
Technician Licensing for Remote Support and Endpoint Management
Licensed per concurrent technician: This model caters to up to 300 managed endpoints per technician license. It's tailored for IT professionals and support teams, ensuring they have the tools to provide top-notch support and manage endpoints effectively.
Comprehensive Support Capabilities: Technicians can offer attended and unattended remote support, ensuring timely assistance irrespective of the end-user's availability.
Endpoint Management: Beyond just support, technicians can manage and monitor endpoints, view system logs, manage updates, and more.
Integration and Customization: Splashtop Enterprise seamlessly integrates with leading ticketing and ITSM solutions, allowing for easy remote session initiation and automatic logging of session details.
By offering these two distinct licensing models, Splashtop Enterprise ensures businesses can tailor their remote access and support solution to their specific needs. Whether it's a company looking to empower its remote workforce or an IT team aiming to enhance its support capabilities, Splashtop's flexible licensing provides the perfect fit.

Understanding the benefits of a product or service is often best illustrated through real-world examples. One example is PETstock, a leading Australian pet supply company, which experienced firsthand the advantages of switching to Splashtop Enterprise.
PETstock's IT team, led by IT Manager Shaun Dunstan, was on a mission to streamline and optimize their IT operations. While they initially used TeamViewer for their remote support needs, they faced challenges with its high operational costs and the software's heavy demand on computer resources.
After evaluating several tools, PETstock discovered Splashtop Enterprise. Not only did it offer all the features they were accustomed to with TeamViewer, but it also came at a significantly reduced cost and was less resource-intensive.
PETstock switched to Splashtop and benefitted from a more reliable and user-friendly remote access solution, and they also achieved a 20% cost saving after making the switch.
