Atera

For me, Atera has been a great tool that I added to my arsenal. I wanted something where I could manage my clients' Windows updates. As I used the software, I began to realize all of the various things Atera could do. Now it is a critical component of my business and I would not be able to properly function without it.

With a lot of fine-tuning, it works very well to keep the Tier 2 team aware of almost any variable of interest of notification from your servers. You can automate scripts to deploy based on these events. It's cut down the amount of time spent digging around for answers or sifting through logs. Software deployment could use a lot of work for simplicity. We opted for other apps to accomplish this. The helpdesk function may work for those needing something basic, but again, we opted for a full ITSM based on ITIL. It works well for Remote Desktop Support, even for support on the fly for those who don't have the Premium Desktop app installed.

Pros

Atera

  • Easy to deploy, both in general or to a specific customer.
  • Remote management tools that are in line with every other major solution out there.
  • Real-time alerts that allow for easy monitoring of vital systems.
  • Configurable threshholds on alerts so the system can be tuned to only notify when there is a problem according to certain metrics.

Barracuda Networks, Inc.

  • Very good reporting. We provide monthly reports to our customers on remote access, patching, etc.
  • Multiple methods of remote access. This is helpful because different scenarios require different remote access methods.
  • The site is easy to navigate/manage. There is not a big learning curve for new employees.

Cons

Atera

  • Ticket automation, more options to specific cases or conditions, and change client assigned to ticket, or be able to assign a ticket for the client without hassle of emailing them back or having to create a fake contact.
  • Include notes for client that are not file attachments, maybe integration with a cloud service like Google Docs or OneDrive.
  • Integration with other remote access tools would be helpful.

  • Sometimes when using Premium Remote it says that the wrong password was entered but the password is auto-filled by the program, not the user.

    As of right now, we have found nothing that can offer as many features as Atera does along with the affordability. They are doing monthly releases each month and not just making small changes (shared scripting library, chocolatey support, Install packages, Splashtop SOS support, Scheduled tickets to name a few). The uptimes are great and accessibility to the dashboard has yet to be limited. We are a happy customer and bordering on fanboy status now

    Atera

    Atera support provides answers to my questions lightning fast. They have never left me feeling like I'm out there on my own. I can ask questions by email, or by chat, or by opening a ticket with them and they are always on it quickly. They also have a forum where other Atera users can help you if you need it, and you can also add feature requests via the forum.

    We've tried many times to work with support to accomplish various tasks in the system with minimal responsiveness and success. Most of what we have accomplished has been without support and through trial/error.

    Alternatives Considered

    Atera

    We had tried Syncro, Naverisk, Pulseway - dollar for dollar stack for stack, Atera blew them out of the water. Atera is easy to use, easy to manage, has flourishing facebook and reddit groups for support and they update their knowledge bases daily. Their communication and support has been bar none.

    AVG Managed Workplace has more tools and features. The pre-existing templates and alerts are working properly while Continuum does not even provide service like that. There are some specific tools to work with and they are super easy to complete the task, for example, you can show what was replaced for your client. You can do it with others and even with Excel, but with table grid view mode of AVG will help you to do it more easily.

    Return on Investment

    Atera

    • The lack of cost per unit is a great asset. Our team consists of two members who really use the product, and the cost being per member means we can have hundreds of machines and still only pay for two users.
