Last week Logmein decided to give one week’s notice to users of a change in their existing sales strategy. Everyone using logmein Free (which is a service they have provided for about a decade), Here is their blog announcement.

It seems to me that someone on the board decided its time to bring in some serious revenue, but giving a week’s notice to me seems far to short. Surely it should have been a few months?

Many of the clients Friedman IT support have their own logmein account and we use this to connect and support.

As a result of this sudden announcement, Friedman IT Solutions has  purchased a subscription to Logmein Central to support our clients. Over the coming year we will be evaluating alternatives to see what other products are out there.

Some alternatives we have been impressed by are:

Screen Connect

Team Viewer

We found this article very useful.
