What we hear

"We use it every day to remotely troubleshoot client problems, manage servers, etc. The stand alone version also works great for one time rescue sessions."

“The coronavirus pandemic has been a very testing time, but we managed to gain and grow through that time, adding customers. Using N-able Take Control has probably been the central thing that allowed me to provide my customers with that confidence, that natural peace of mind that we are able to remotely connect to their machines, no matter where they are.”

"This product has allowed us as a company to provide better more secure remote support to companies that are not currently under our management. Another benefit is that we no longer have to send customers to an unbranded free remote connection software, which gives our end users more confidence in the service they are receiving."

“I like that for Take Control Plus we can have our clients go to tour website and click ‘Get Support Now’ without having to walk them through 20 prompts.”

"Quick and easy to setup a trial with nothing more than an email address. Sales contact is quick to respond but not over powering in their approach. The software is full featured with a great set of tools for the IT support Tech."

Truck rolls are costly

Truck rolls are costly

On-site visits cost MSPs time and money. They also hinder responsiveness to other clients because techs are out in the field serving just one client at a time.

We need to support remote work models

We need to support remote work models

Remote work has really stretched MSPs’ operations. It means more people, more tools and devices to support, and more problems. However, clients have the same service expectations.

Our remote support needs to be secure

Our remote support needs to be secure

Remoting into a user’s computer requires trust. MSP techs are taking control of their devices and data, so the connections need to be secure and well audited.

"This product has allowed us as a company to provide better more secure remote support to companies that are not currently under our management. Another benefit is that we no longer have to send customers to an unbranded free remote connection software, which gives our end users more confidence in the service they are receiving."

We need to track customer satisfaction

We need to track customer satisfaction

MSP techs work one-on-one with clients. Managers need to learn how they’re doing, so they can identify and address any issues and train techs on solutions or service skills.

We want to increase support efficiency

We want to increase support efficiency

MSPs want to run support more efficiently. Connecting with clients, getting approvals to access their devices, and remoting in all take time that’s about setup, not service.

See it in action

“N-able Take Control is faster than LogMeIn and has better visibility and reporting than TeamViewer. I am primarily using Take Control Plus for end users working from home. I like the fact that I can create an ad-hoc session with their home PC to help set it up, as well as manage them, and join their sessions. This makes N-able Take Control product befitting to help end-users do remote access when most of them have never done anything like it before.”
