Overall Satisfaction with ConnectWise Automate (formerly LabTech)

When we first started using Automate we used it for all of our clients. However, we have now brought that down to just a few due to the cost of the product. We still actively use it today for a handful of servers.
  • It organizes client machines very well.
  • Is very good at automating processes.
  • Is great for setting up alerts on client's machines.
  • The cost of the product is way too high.
  • A better GUI and wizard would help streamline the process.
  • The auto-install process for other applications could be made a lot better.
  • For the time we were heavily using it, it did help with some automation.
ConnectWise gave us a lot more automation features.
It is great if you need a solution to automate computer processes like updating computers and applications. It's also useful if you need alerts sent to a centralized location. The fact it also utilizes ConnectWise Control to remote into computers is also very nice.

It is not really an appropriate product for those who do not have more than 100 client's machines to manage.
