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 Software Developer, System Administrator, and consignment software specialist. I currently manage hundreds of consignment workstations, point of sale systems, and database servers all across North America and I am the developer of Peeps' Software, Peeps2Go, and Peeps' Consignor Login for iOS and Android. I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. Peeps' Software launched in 2016 and is now on hundreds of systems all across North America. I have successfully converted dozens of stores from all of the major consignment software systems. After 20 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old buildings or strip malls, to advocating for them when their old consignment software keeps crashing.
