Atera

Atera is well suited for small to medium sized MSPs. Enterprise grade sized MSPs may find some of the menus and details difficult to work with. Mac Houses should feel good about the platform - the reporting and alerting works like a charm. Patching is as good as any I've seen.

It is well suited for a startup MSP that cannot afford some of the more expensive tools.

Pros

Atera

  • Remote Access--Splashtop provides direct access so we can see what users see and help them with current issues
  • Sound Troubleshooting--Splashtop is phenomenal in pulling sound from the machine and helping with remote sound troubleshooting
  • Remote Background Access
  • Patch Management--While we have other solutions for mass patch management, whenever we run into a machine being stubborn, I just turn to Atera and target that machine directly to install the annoying patches. Seems to work beautifully. I rarely get an error on install.
  • CMD/Powershell Access--The ability to remote CMD and remote Powershell is key to solving lots of remote issues. This access is better than most other platforms and once setup is easier than actual Powershell remoting. A real plus.

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.

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 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.

Support was very responsive when needed.

Alternatives Considered

Atera

Atera is a lightweight cloud application that handles most every need of small and large IT Firms alike. It closely resembles Ninja, N-Able, and Syncro in performance and scale. The biggest difference is the pricing models as Atera and Syncro charge per user as opposed by device it is managing. When speaking of Connectwise, it truly is an apple to oranges comparison. Connectwise Licensing is very expensive and the program is so robust that you basically have to be trained really well in order to manage the system itself. Onboarding can take precious too many hours, whereas with Atera you can have your basic setup running in a matter of an hour or 2. I think my biggest applause to Atera is the live support chat that is not a bot and is very responsive right within the console as opposed to having to draft emails to create tickets. Questions truly are answered in real-time.

Return on Investment

Atera

  • High ROI is beacuse of the licencing model by technician instead of by agent.
  • Negative impact is that we are not billed in our own currency, so we have to add exchange rate fee.
  • Give us a good challenge on our customer offer.

  • Ended up moving to another solution.
  • The time spent on this solution did not improve our business workflow.
