Autotask PSA

Autotask is much more well suited to a busy company. It's a little bit price-prohibitive if you only have a couple of employees or not many clients. This solution works for us, having 10 employees and about 200 clients. Any less than that, the pricing wouldn't be worthwhile.Autotask fits very well with us. It's easy to keep on task. Any tickets that are getting old will shoot out alerts and scheduled tasks for our techs to finish up work on it. It's also very easy to run reports for clients on the services that they've used through us. We love Autotask.

Oracle IT Service Management Suite

It is helpful when someone wants to reassign issues and delegate tasks to other co-workers. However, it is not a good place for documentation because it is difficult to navigate older issue tickets. This is my personal experience with RightNow, an Oracle application used to manage our incident reports and project tracking documents

Pros

Autotask PSA

  • The graphical calculations on time spent on requests, how long they were open for, who worked on a ticket last.
  • Grouping by priority so you can determine easier what needs to be addressed sooner rather then later. This also helps if Account Management has conversations a technician is not aware of so they can prioritize efficiently.
  • The email updates that are sent out to the technicians so they are aware of upcoming or stale tickets.

Oracle IT Service Management Suite

  • It kept a log of all our issue tickets going back many years.
  • Oracle made it easy to collaborate on issue tickets and work with my team members.
  • It offered a number of features for formatting and inserting images and links, to make our issue tickets resemble an email.
  • Oracle helped our department to delegate issue tickets and monitor each other's projects.

Cons

Autotask PSA

  • To date, the maim area of improvement is the ability to allow for retrieving a ticket that may have inadvertently been deleted. At present there is no way to do this which at times can be frustrating.
  • The search function does leave something to be desired as it does require some specific wording to find what you're looking for.

  • The search function was very poor, which made it difficult to find our issue tickets in RightNow.
  • The Reply feature was kind of messy at times, it was difficult to find out who originally sent in tickets and reply all to people.
  • It could have looked a bit sleeker, it looked somewhat outdated in the RightNow function.

They are fairly quick at returning a response to a problem and have been able to fix all issues for the most part.

Alternatives Considered

Autotask PSA

Datto Autotask PSA is probably the best all-in-one platform for MSPs. It's targeted and designed specifically for MSPs, whilst most service desk software/PSA is often just general service desk software.

Return on Investment

Autotask PSA

  • We can effectively contract profitability. After running a few quick reports we realized we were charging about 1/2 what we should have been for fixed rate projects.
  • We track resource utilization to see where our technicians are productive and what is eating their valuable time.
  • I feel that Autotask is the single biggest impact on overall business ROI. We track profitability of everything from hardware to services to contracts with it. It allows us to make intelligent business decisions based on numbers.

Oracle IT Service Management Suite

  • It was helpful because it was our only system for organizing incident reports, and it was where I worked 70% of the time to correspond with our customers.
  • The interface was sometimes time-consuming to use, and I wondered if there would have been a more streamlined program to use. It made our work seem slow at times.
  • This program did provide us with a back-log of all of our issues, so it was important for us to use to in order to find repeated incident reports.
