Who else is losing Lansweeper due to increased licensing costs coupled with budget cuts from COVID?

Just curious if anyone else is in the same boat as the organization I work for. The timing for Lansweeper raising their prices last year is proving to be the nail in the coffin for it's continued use in our organization. We had to fight hard to keep it after the pricing increases were announced, and we barely got it approved. Then COVID hit, and our financials took a huge hit. Not surprisingly, the decision was made to cut Lansweeper (among many other things), but this is a huge blow to us techs who use it daily. We've used Lansweeper for over decade, and now we're losing it. The man upstairs looks at it as a way to save $$$, but for those of use who use it daily, it's going to mean a step back into the stone ages.

Anyone else?

Yes we are in a similar situation.
We are using premium today along with their helpdesk, so our jump in price will be huge when the time comes to renew.
Its a wonderful product that we have been using for a long time, and we would really love too keep using it, but the leap in price is just too high for us as it stands now.

We are currently in the process of evaluating other similar products and hope we'll find something that can work for us in a similar fashion. It will probably be a step down though since Lansweeper really is best at what they do, but we hope to at least find something with the basic functionality that we need.

These are sad times..

Have a look in here, I've stopped renewing the license even before covid.
