LogMeIn Is Getting EXPENSIVE!!!


TL;DR — We recommend SplashTop.

I used to be able to justify the cost of LogMeIn to our clients.  The benefits and convenience of being able to access your store computers from home are tremendous.

When LogMeIn went from free to roughly $100 per year, it was still a justifiable expense.  This year though, it’s gotten out of control.  Take a look at the pricing increase between 2014 and 2017:

$600 for LogMeIn’s “5-pack” subscription.  While I feel ease-of-use, as well as security are key benefits, these benefits can be found elsewhere.

As of now, The Computer Peeps officially recommend SplashTop to our clients.  For $16.99 per year, our clients can easily and securely access their store computers from home.  Simply install the SplashTop Streamer app on your store computer(s), then install the SplashTop Personal app on your home computer(s).  There are also apps for Android (free), iPhone ($2.99), and iPad ($6.99).

I am a consignment software specialist, System Administrator for hundreds of consignment workstations across North America, and developer of Peeps' Software! I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 18+ years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage hundreds of computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
