    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.

    BQE Core is a really great product for time management, billing, Accounts receivable, Accounts payable, vendor billing, and project management for architectural practices. It is also very strong in supporting collaboration and management reporting as well as integration with other software that you may already be using such as Quickbooks. BQE Core is lacking in the allocation and forecasting area, especially when trying to see the big picture for capacity across the company.

    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.

    • Invoice Collections within Billing is a great tool because of the ability to take notes and track contact.
    • Invoices are professional looking and easy for our clients to understand the overall progress within each phase of their project.
    • Dashboards are the best tool EVER!
    • The Contact List feature within Clients setup is the perfect way to track multiple project managers within a large company that also has multiple contracts with us.

    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.

    • Simplification of structure and features (customization); sometimes it's too much of a good thing.
    • The mobile app could be more closely aligned with the web platform (not all items, features are available, and not as easy to navigate and view data).
    • Dashboard widgets could be more interactive. Ex: Aged Receivables should allow bringing up a summary window of past-due project billings and invoices as opposed to simply showing days aged that it already shows on the side and with matching color.

      Atera

      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

      We have been using Core for a few years now, and honestly started to look at other software systems to see what was out there. What we chose was a nightmare for migration so we never left Core. Now we have added invoicing and payments from Core instead of double entry with QBO. Still only a few cycles in but looks like it will be up to speed soon and working smoothly.

      If I were being asked why i give it a 10/10 rating, I suppose it would come down to one, and really honestly just the one single item: usability. I live a busy life, you know? When I need to get in to log my time I can do that extremely expediently. I like the program that I'm using if that makes sense.

      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.

      The software makes my process of submitting documents and expense reports easier! The way it tracks hours is great and reliable. The interface is easy to use and the graphic is very intuitive. The customer service is also great and it helped me a lot when I needed. Very satisfied

      It does take some time to understand the options and to find the best invoice template.

      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.

      Wind2 and MYOB where both DOS based operating systems so BillQuick is a god send compared to them. While BillQuick and Ajera are both Windows based, when we purchased BillQuick, it was mainly because for the size of the company we were (12 people), it was a much better option than Ajera, which is great for a larger firm. As we have grown, BillQuick has done a great job at growing with us. The only issue we are having is that we opened an office in another state and we have not been able to get those staff members to access the data base yet. But we are working on it

      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.

      • Quick ability to create new projects with similar structure using cloning option
      • Ability to move time directly from timesheet module to billing
      • Billing Review feature could use some improvement - ie doc review billing
      • Shorthand module is helpful for defaulting common memo lingo
