ConnectWise Manage

ConnectWise is a feature rich and extremely comprehensive solution for ticketing, invoicing, CRM, and IT relations. It does all of these functions exceedingly well, but it falls short on being user friendly. Getting comfortable in the software requires going through a full week of training modules. While these are well made, and do get users off and running, no helpdesk software should require that much training.

Pros

ConnectWise Manage

  • Tickets- Customers can email and a ticket is generated and falls under their profile for historical records. You can save documents and select if they are customer facing or only internal facing. The option as well to have communication in tickets whether its internal facing or customer facing is nice to have when you're trying to keep a record or important details for just internal means and the customer doesn't have to see all the jargon.
  • Procurement - It's great to have this integrate with Quosal Sell. Quotes being processed into opportunities and then into a sales order which connects to a ticket or project is pretty easy to use. It does have a learning curve but once you get the hang of it, it's straightforward. Everything is pretty connected, whether keeping track of products customers have purchased historically through us, to knowing what ticket is associated to an RMA.

  • Best in class workflow - end to end.
  • Best in class user interface - across entities: clients, employees, workflow developers.
  • AI engine support to find the logical correlation between the events and proactive measures to address them.

Cons

ConnectWise Manage

  • I will say the calendar option needs a little bit of work.
  • A calendar that looks more like lets say a Google Calendar would a nice feature.
  • Better Knowledge base section.
  • We attempted to get very good use out of the Knowledge however due to not really being able to organize it and it being very hard to navigate we had to go a different route for our documentation.
  • Possibly adding a cleaner user interface and adding more customization for the organization of companies would help.
  • A better layout for reporting would also be something good to have.
  • The layouts available are so difficult to put together to get what you want out of a report. Virtually makes it impossible to get what you want out of them.

  • Need a aid on how to use the system.
  • Functionality to scroll down should not be too sensitive.
  • Adding user helpful tools to help navigate.

ConnectWise has uniquely positioned themselves with the Modern Office Suite to have direct integration with a nearly full suite of tools for MSPs. Although each tool may not necessarily be the absolute best tool on the market, the efficiencies leveraged through direct integration make the entire suite an obvious choice for most companies.

I have been using ConnectWise since 2004 and I am impressed with the progress they have made. However, there are still bugs that don't work quite like they should. If I were to run reports and get consistent answers along with a couple other annoyances, then I would score CW as a 10

Bottom line is that it does what you need it to do. We've been using Service Now as a ticket managing tool for a few years now. There's really not much it can't do when it comes to recording interactions. It has been nice using inventory tracking for software licenses and hardware as well.

We use the cloud version of ConnectWise and in the last 5 years it has never been down for us during business hours. I can only recall 1 time when it was not available during off hours when we wanted to use it.

Performance

Some tab for certain areas load speeds could be better. Dashboards can load slowly when they reference multiple reports. Some reports can load slowly based on the tables and views they are accessing. At times the SQL queries being performed in the background can actually timeout and a tab or screen will fail to load.

The front line support techs are wildly inconsistent when it comes to the level of support. Sometimes you get someone who just wants to throw links to University documentation at you, sometimes you get someone who truly tries to understand your issue and confers with peers and managers to find an answer, and sometimes you get someone who just wants to create a ticket and escalate immediately. If you ask three different techs the same question you will probably get three different answers, one of them being, "That's not possible."

Support has been very good. Any time there has been a real issue, the team has responded very quickly and identified the issue without a lot of repetitive questions that I've seen from other services. There is a great external community and internal knowledge base that covers pretty much anything you need.

Online Training

Based on 7 answers
We are a telecoms company. Whilst CW were very happy to sell us their product and tell us how good it is for telecoms. All the training material is geared towards IT MSP's. The on-line training material was virtually useless. We found the implementation a bit of a joke. They tried telling us 12 hours of implementation time would be sufficient to launch the product. We erred on the side of caution and paid for 24 hours. This was quickly eaten away and we were nowhere near ready to go-live. I find the on-line chat facility is of much more use for us.

Rather than letting them sell you a block of time for implementation, create a list of things that must be completed do declare the implementation complete. The implementer will have the discretion on what they set up and in what order. They will be trying to end their services in as little time as possible and may not get things set up right. You are best advised to hire a third-party wizard that has done many of these setups. Record the audio and video of all of your implementation sessions.

Alternatives Considered

ConnectWise Manage

We have tried other and have found ConnectWise the be the best. It is the most comprehensive, offer the best integrations and did not require a complete overhaul of our work flows. We also found the training to be superb and the support, especially the online chat, to be highly responsive and effective.

ServiceNow has a lot of easy options and easy tracking methods which will help [it] to stay a standout when compared to other tools. It has its own taste in it which is loved by millions.It's a top notch tool and I use it every day to maintain a track of my tickets with the users.

ConnectWise seems to have a good understanding of the IT service industry. During the required onboarding training, they even preach configuring only features that you need right now, as you can always scale up later. The feature set for the most part takes into considerations all aspects of an IT business, whether small or enterprise, or growing from one to the next.

Return on Investment

ConnectWise Manage

  • At this stage in the game, we have been using the Connectwise Manage product for just one year. This basically means we're just getting out of the honeymoon part of the relationship and will now venture into getting our full value out of the software as we also begin to grow our business. We can't report on our ROI yet but we can't see ourselves living without a great PSA tool either.
  • The software has definitely enabled our projects manager to operate with more focus on the project itself, knowing that the finance details will be visible and closely scrutinized by the CFO prior to having an invoice or agreement created.
Daryn O'Shea | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Return on investment for resource allocation
  • Increased communication across various teams
  • If there isn't proper routing set up this can cause a lot of headaches so ensure you have it mapped out properly
