    I see where I can request a 7-day trial of Bomgar but I haven’t found information about prices for a quick reference on the website. I run s small IT business and I’m looking for a cost-effective remote support tool. So far, I have been evaluating a 15-day free trial of Techinline ( and it seems to meet my requirements in terms of features and affordable pricing.
