    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.

    Track-It! is great for a small-to-medium sized enterprise that has a fairly small IT department but needs far more control of tickets than just email and spreadsheets. It scales well enough as IT departments grow, adding techs is simple enough, as is changing the workflow. A large company would probably be better off with a different solution. The lack of easy customization, and the shortcomings it has in workflow templates (which would be a nightmare for project management) means it won't scale up that far.

    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.

    • The software is simple to use. There doesn't seem to be a lot of bells and whistles which could be attractive to some users.
    • It includes email notifications where users are able to respond to an email and it updates the ticket.
    • The system gives you the ability to customize your view so that you only need to see that tickets that are relevant to you or your group.

    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.

    • Configuration is convoluted in my opinion. Getting the email to flow how you'd like is difficult.
    • A lot of the configuration option names aren't very clear. It seems they use their own terminology for things I would have never guessed.
    • Support is lacking - asking them for help always results in them directing you to a KB article. Sometimes you just want hand holding.

      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.

      We have rarely needed to use Support for BMC Track-It!, but in the times that we did need to use it, they were excellent. The biggest issue is that after not paying for support for about three years, now that we NEED support, it is too expensive for us to receive. This is due to the way their support is billed. So long as you never drop support, then you should be fine.

      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.

      BMC Track-It! is much more bare bones compared to ServiceNow products, and if your department has the money, ServiceNow is a much better option. Not only is the Knowledge Base much easier to create and publish articles, but the asset management in BMC Track-It! is practically useless. BMC Track-It! is more cost effective, and with a small amount of technicians there's likely no reason to need a bigger solution, but it leaves a lot wanting.

      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.

      • The biggest positive impact it had on ROI was that the software itself didn't require any expensive ongoing maintenance contracts since it was installed and managed by our organization.
      • The negative aspect of this is if there was a major problem with the software, then it would require contacting the vendor, at which point it could become expensive for a service call.
