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.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM) is well suited for any organization or company size. Probably is used more in depth in organizations or companies that have 20 or more PCs. Being that Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM) comes with Microsoft 365 Business Premium is a huge plus which makes it very well suited for any size business, especially small businesses.

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.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

  • [Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)] helps to speed up the deployment of patches/software throughout our environment. I can easily build a package and then deploy across all endpoints.
  • The ability to supercede software is also quite handy. This automates the removal of old versions and replacing them with newer versions.
  • The Intune Autopilot option is very useful if you want to deploy software to devices straight out of the box. You can configure them to download software when a user opens a new PC and turns it on for the first time.

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.
Maycon Menezes | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

  • The program itself can be challenging to use, especially if there hasn't been any formal training on the use of the product. Either training/reviewing documentation is recommended prior to using SCCM.
  • At times, it can be difficult to try and find out why a certain machine that's listed in SCCM says that the endpoint has the SCCM client and shows as Active, but in fact, it's not. It's also difficult at times to try and figure out why the client can't be pushed down to the endpoint.
  • Even though the remote assistance features in SCCM are really good, it can be challenging at times when the remote options don't work for a particular endpoint, even though the machine is active, online, etc.

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

Mascom Wireless is a Microsoft shop and SCCM has proved to be helpful in keeping our Microsoft products up to date every month without fail. We also have a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement which we renewed for three years ending 2022. The remote access utility works wonders for the organisation and have saved travel bills including subsistance allowance.We have been able to fulfill security audits both internal and external. We have been able to keep a robust inventory of our computer assets and nothing falls of the cracks

The console is not intuitive and does not work well often. Due to the complexity of the product, documentation can be confusing. When properly configured, routine tasks like OS deployment, remote control, and software deployment are easy to do. Troubleshooting of System Center Configuration Manager issues is hard, as there are various logs, and their content can be hard to understand.

It's a 'heavy' system, which demands a lot of resources form the datacenter perspective. So, make sure you followed the requirements to avoid frustration in the future. From the 'client' perspective, it's fine. I've never had any issue with that.

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.

Being a Microsoft product, support was good. Out interaction was limited to our in-house IT team which was installing the Intune app in our mobile device. The installation was smooth and we haven't faced any difficulties with the app while using it. Provides a smooth and secure access to all Office 365 apps in mobile while separating the personal and professional data.

Work with a "test group" of users who you have a good relationship with so that when things don't work properly they understand!Work with your partner nicely without forcing things especially timelines as you are bound to make mistakes and create oversights in the projectManagement can also interfere with the implementation (which can cause delays) if you make too many mistakes which takes me back to having a "test group" where you have good relations

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.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

SCCM's bread and butter has been imaging, and that still can't be beat. With cloud computing becoming more normal, however, we are seeing fewer instances where we are flat out imaging devices as they come in. However, [Microsoft] Endpoint Manager still [excels] in this area. Application deployment is reliable but requires patience. Other products such as PDQ or Goverlan will provide more immediate satisfaction for net admins looking to deploy an application right then and there.

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.
Dominic Larouche | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

  • Cuts down our software deployment and patch management time compared to our old tools.
  • Better reporting capability to determine the success to fail ratio of a deployed software or patch and additional information provided to mitigate the failed deployment.
  • Consistent tool usage across our global units with centralized reporting to monitor monthly patch and software deployment results.
