Atera
Well Atera is a big platform with multiple features, I use Remote Session for Remote access and Scripting management for platform and application management in our network. In some cases if there is dependency on Driver version of hardware like network driver, I have also used Atera to push latest Driver to user machines which works like a charm. Atera is a really good platform.

Tech tickets and engineering support. The best thing about iSupport is the ability to make custom views and filters. For instance, I have my view set up so I can see when the case was opened, the priority, product, and the customer. I also set it up so if any case has not been updated for 5 days it will turn red notifying me that I need to update the customer.

Pros
Atera
  • Remoting in from anywhere, even on my phone or tablet, has enabled me to quickly diagnose, or even fully resolve, problems.
  • The ticketing, once users are set up, is a breeze. It also keeps everything in one place for them.
  • With Atera the need to travel on-site has been dramatically reduced.

iSupport
  • Very organized
  • Easy to track and follow-up
  • Great for engineers to prioritize and track all incidents and product related requests that are needed. The real time email system is great exposure across the company as well.

Cons
Atera
  • Some basic functions need some extra work
  • Some basic things are behind paywalls
  • Feature board is not credible. Ideas taking very, very long to implement
  • Atera has no clear road map
  • SNMP monitoring needs a make over and needs more options

  • Although it's great to have everything in one place, it can be a little hard to read sometimes in terms of the amount of tickets and being able to decipher between multiple [issues]. Color coordination might be able to help with this for example.

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

Usability
Atera
In the past, we would have to remote into the endpoint to see what was causing an issue. Now we can check the portal and get a very detailed analysis of what's going on the with user's system. In addition we can run scripts and open a command prompt of the user's system without having to remote into the system and disrupt the user.

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.

Alternatives Considered
Atera
NinjaOne is a great platform but is simple overall versus Atera. Atera is so feature rich that it can be overwhelming at times but is worth the learning curve. Take time to go through the onboarding, reading the help articles, and even reaching out to support directly through the platform and you will make the most of all features.

Return on Investment
Atera
  • The intuitive user interface has enabled both users and support technicians to familiarize themselves quickly with the functionality, and the learning curve is less.
  • Some features need to be accessed through documentation; they're not available directly on the dashboard.
  • Sometimes, internet access plays a significant role, whereas low connectivity is a hindrance.

  • Saves time and positive ROI as we don't take the time anymore to hold meetings to discuss all incidents. As a software tool, it is amazingly customizable and gives us tons of control over what each department, support representative, or user can see. This is important for us because we have currently 2 separate support departments using iSupport as well as confidential and personal information that goes through the system.
