Looking for Cost-Effective Desktop Sharing app for Help-Desk Support

I'm setting up a help desk for a non-profit.

The non-profit will supply support to clients in the U.S.
The clients are not tech-savy and may not have administrative rights on their computers. Ideally, the setup for the presenters needs to be easy and avoids an install.
Despite my company's non-profit status, this is commercial use of the desktop sharing application. That-being-said, we expect to pay for the service. Our clients cannot see a message like the Mikogo message shown below.

Mikogo Free Message
I'm looking for a pricing plan that isn't punitive for a large number of presenters as LogMeIn Pro, for example, is.


LogMeIn Fee Schedule
Finally, the help desk providers will not be at static IP address. They'll be connected to the WAN with dynamic IPs, sometimes they'll be in coffee shops, sometimes they'll in their own client's offices.

Suggestions?

If you are looking for an agent based application we have used both Labtech and N-Able but they are more geared towards Managed Service Providers.

Bomgar has a client that allows for remote connections but it does require some hardware to host the application:

That is what I would probably use if you only want the ability to connect to clients remote but not automate Windows Updates or other things that Managed Service Provides do.

You should contact them and let them know you are a non-profit and only want the JumpClient. They will probably give you a deal and I think it would do what you want it to.
