Choosing the right product is not an easy task. The more alternatives there are, the more cautious you should be not to fall for the numerous tricks businesses use to get you on board. It’s not uncommon to start a new service at a reasonably low price but end up paying a lot of extras over the years. We all know ‘life-time’ licence that turns out not to be life-time at all by the time of the next upgrade. Or the expensive but much needed extra functionality and mobile editions added to the initial basic application, etc.
However, there are still vendors that play it fair, ISL Online being one of them. ISL Online pricing policy has always been a straightforward one with prices and quantity discounts freely available in the online shop. While the prices might not be on the low-end, ISL Online is still the most cost effective remote desktop support software on the market. Let me show you why.
Although the most widely used OS is still Windows 7 with a 60.75% market share, followed by Windows 8.1 with a mere 13.09% and the still popular Windows XP at 11.74%, Windows 10 is here and hitting the world attention. After carrying out thorough performance tests of the ISL Light remote desktop software on the largely anticipated OS, we are proud to announce full compatibility with Windows 10.

We are proud to announce the release of a redesigned remote desktop support end-user application ISL Light Client for Windows, Mac and Linux, which now matches the state-of-the-art design of the operator application ISL Light 4. You are welcome to update and distribute the new client application to your customers.
