Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • We have needed to hire less staff due to automation.
  • We can apply a change to multiple computers at one time as opposed to one at a time. This saves us a lot of time.
  • A single pane of glass allows for easy review of issues.

  • The product definitely increases productivity. Technicians can spend a few seconds to take care of remote tasks with a few clicks as opposed to minutes to get a user to start a remote control session, or worse, going on site to work on a piece of equipment.
  • The packaging of the features makes selling and pricing the product fairly straight-forward and convenient. This saves our sales team time from trying to work with add-ons when pricing our services - the product makes it easy to just have an "all you can eat" package at a set price.
  • When something goes wrong with the product, our business and our customers suffer. If for example, a bug causes all managed computers to reboot, our customers call in, resulting in our technicians being booked solid doing damage control. This also causes loss of trust with our customers - we can't simply blame the product, the customer trusts us to provide them a service and if the product fails, we fail.

  • N-central is very inexpensive considering all the things it can do. It is very easy to add values to the customer by being able to provide monitoring, remote management, patching, AV, etc., all from a single tool.

  • SolarWinds N-central has had a massive impact on the availability of service desk resources as it allows for integration with Autotask for automated ticket logging.
  • SolarWinds N-central reduces time spent per ticket as the back-end tools allow for tickets resolutions without client interaction.
  • While the initial cost was rather high it is truly worth every penny.

  • N-Central was able to increase our monitoring revenue and create a new stream of automation revenue without having technicians do actual work
  • It allows us to create a custom asset review for customers so we can recommend upgrades and help our customers budget each year.
  • Server management and monitoring was also a huge success, it helped us gain more profits from servers we sold.

  • For what we pay, it is a great tool. It was a bit of an investment to switch over from what we had, but worth every penny.
  • The more we use it the more we learn about how it can save our IT staff time and energy and therefore saves us money and resource time.
  • Ease of use. If you've ever run any remote tool you'll be able to find your way around this one with ease and enjoy all of it's features.
