You’ll get fast and secure remote access, all the top features, and a price that saves you 50% or more when compared to TeamViewer 14 by choosing Splashtop.
If you’re in the market for a new remote access and/or remote support solution, then you’ll be better off choosing Splashtop over the latest version of TeamViewer. The recent announcement of TeamViewer 14 Final lists a few new features and performance enhancements (some of which are already in Splashtop) that are in the new version. However, the truth of the matter is that you’ll get everything you need with Splashtop and pay far less for it.
In this article, we’ll go over how Splashtop compares to TeamViewer 14 and what you’ll get out of each option. Plus, before we go any further, it’s important to mention that you can get full access to the Splashtop solution of your choice for free for 7 days (no credit card or commitments required), so you can try Splashtop yourself and get the reassurance you need that you’re making the right decision before you purchase.
With that said, here’s why you should hold off on that TeamViewer 14 download and try out Splashtop first.
Remote Access/Remote Support Feature Comparison
At the core, Splashtop and TeamViewer are both remote access solutions. Both give you fast remote connectivity to your computers and devices from any other device, from anywhere in the world. Both work across the most used operating systems (Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android), and both have simple user interfaces.
When it comes to the tools and features needed by business professionals, IT/Support teams, and helpdesk professionals, Splashtop has the same top features found in TeamViewer 14, including:
- Fast remote access
- File transfer (including drag-and-drop)
- Chat (in and out of session)
- Remote print
- Remote wake
- Remote reboot
- Session recording
- Screen sharing
- Multi-to-Multi monitor support
- User and computer management
- 256-bit AES encryption
With that said, both have the features you’ll need to complete your day-to-day tasks. You’ll be able to remotely control your computers or mobile devices and get your work done with ease.
The Price Difference
This is where Splashtop comes out as the clear choice. Whatever your use case, Splashtop can save you 50% or more when compared to TeamViewer 14. TeamViewer 14 starts at $588 per user per year. Splashtop starts at $99 to $299 per year. The reason is because Splashtop has different products for different use cases.
With Splashtop, you’ll get a solution that’s designed to be exactly what you need. Do you want a remote desktop solution to access your computer while away? Do you need to support your users’ computers? Or do you need a way to provide on-demand remote support the moment your customer needs it? Whatever the use case, Splashtop has a solution that gives you fast remote access and the exact features you need.
On the other hand, TeamViewer 14 is just one product that’s trying to please all of those groups, meaning it is priced much higher than any Splashtop solution. It doesn’t matter if you only need to provide unattended support, or just need to access your own computer, you’ll still have to pay the full price of TeamViewer 14 no matter what.
While the latest version of TeamViewer introduced augmented reality support through TeamViewer Pilot, most IT/support, and helpdesk professionals don’t need that expensive feature in their product. The top features that we listed above are more than enough to handle day-to-day remote assistance tasks for most remote support technicians.
Splashtop also has some of the performance enhancements and features that are new to TeamViewer 14, such as macOS Mojave Dark Mode support and the ability to view your users’ trusted devices.
