ECM -XD is great when you are linking documents of different types and from different sources into a single centralized location. There is no limit to the amount of information that can be retained for a specific complaint, investigation, etc. so situations where documents obtained at different times and from different personnel need to be linked to a single file are ideal. ECM -XD is less ideal for situations in which individual file information is simple with low density, or requiring a high level of customization. The user interface is likely more intuitive for novice users through other software options

It is best suited for an MSP but it is also best not suited for an MSP. It is well suited for folks with a minimal knowledge of a client and are attempting to learn what they can. Perhaps just bumbling about and can find the same thing consistently. At my particular work, we pay somebody full time to manage the system. I feel this is unnecessary.

Pros
Xybion
  • Great cloud integration of information. Saves a lot of space on network drives and eliminates need for local storage of critical documents.
  • Very good comprehensive repository of information. Documents of different format and file extensions are allowed for upload and easy to access.
  • Regulatory and auditory compliance. This platform facilitates documentation of customer feedback, and thus ensures GMP, ISO, and FDA compliance.

  • The UI has been set up perfectly, there is a sub-menu for every possible bit of information you wish to store.
  • There are a number of excellent features such as the autohiding passwords and quick searching from anywhere on the page.
  • The recent addition of the IT Glue is also an excellent feature, it features online self-guided courses to become a certified IT Glue user.
  • You can create and group custom documents together.
  • IT Glue can be integrated with a number of platforms such as Autotask.
  • IT Glue also integrates well with N-Central to automatically populate the configurations tab with all the relevant Workstation, Printer, and Server information making client on-boarding a breeze.

Cons
Xybion
  • Customization could be made easier. Often times we instead have blank unused information fields for individual complaint files.
  • Record display layout could be optimized. While very comprehensive, it could be difficult to find specific information.
  • Mobile compatibility. I haven't seen any support for mobile compatibility. ECM -XD is typically only accessed on laptop and desktop machines in our organization.

  • Like many other MSPs we had the majority of our SOPs and KBs in Word docs. The best case scenario would be to simply drop those files directly into ITG without having to import them into the ITG documentation format. The import function is so broken as to not be an option because it completely ruins formatting and tends to drop images. Thus we have to manually copy/paste text and individually upload each image.
  • They marketed the product as having true branding but that is stretching the truth. SSL is not an option so client-facing documents will give security errors in browsers. ITG does not appear to be concerned about this even though security is a major concern for all MSPs.

Easy to train and use. Everything is in the same place. Multi factor authentication and access from anywhere make secure and convenient. Can do my job with out it. It also has a free read and paid write option for the client. We up sell this option making it a money maker as well.

Other than a few access outages, ITGlue is always up and available to us. Their ability to export Playbook, that contain our customers data, and securely send those over to them is amazing and are produced pretty fast. We have IT Glue linked with several other services and software and we have not found that it slows anything down.

Support Rating

Customer support for ECM -XD has been very responsive and quick to resolve issues and answer inquiries. Help contact links aren't very visible within the platform, and mobile or tablet support doesn't look to be documented. Overall, support is great from a functional perspective but could be easier to find and use with improvements in layout and interface design.

No problems with support when needed it. Their answers on how to handle DR/BC situations when ITG is down are not stellar. They don't seem to get the business risks of their suggestions to just give the xls backup to engineers (aka give all passwords of ALL clients to engineers in an unencrypted flat-file where it is easy to copy, print, etc.)

We chose IT Glue particularly because it's tailored to IT documentation. As a managed IT service provider, it's perfectly in line with what we were looking for. The flexibility and tagging in particular were the kind of features we were looking for. Confluence is very good, and can be used for a number of things, not just IT documentation, but IT Glue shines for that.

Return on Investment
Xybion
  • Large annual cost savings ($500K+) in hardware and storage space of complaint-related documentation by moving to cloud platform.
  • Significant time savings in information retrieval and audit preparation by centralizing information for multiple users to single repository.
  • Easier GMP, ISO, and FDA regulation compliance through comprehensive linkage of documentation and customer feedback timeline.

  • We regret the purchase and have received little, if any, ROI.
  • [In my expereience], the main feature we hoped to get ROI from (MyGlue) was so terrible we were embarrassed to roll it out to our clients.
  • Because [I feel] it is slow and clunky, staff find quicker ways to access needed data so this is not used as much as we would have liked.
