Overall Satisfaction with ManageWP

We currently use ManageWP to manage all of our WP sites for clients. Using ManageWP really streamlines managing multiple installations of WordPress. With the constant updates of plugins and security patches we can update 50+ sites with a single click. Also, if you happen to host with GoDaddy or a GoDaddy owned hosting company you get access to the premium features for free.
  • Manage multiple WordPress installations. We currently manage 50 WordPress installations with ease and I'm confident that we could add another couple hundred without a problem.
  • Manage updates and plugins easily through their admin portal. You can simply click a button and apply ALL updates across all sites or you can cherry pick them as needed.
  • Managing users has never been simpler using ManageWP. Simply click the website -> Users -> And add your users.
  • As with all management consoles sometime too many things is a bad thing which seems that ManageWP is keeping in check but they are always adding something new. Sometimes we don't need to create an answer for a non-existing problem.
  • There does not seem to be to many options outside of just plugins and updates that you can do on a global level. Example: If I want to add/remove a user to all sites I haven't found that feature.
  • No templating when creating new sites. It would be nice if you could setup a template (users, settings, backup, etc..) and then select that template when creating the new site and those settings would be applied.
  • The ROI is simply amazing. Before we had to dedicate developers to update plugins and WP, now we simply make a backup and click a button.
I personally think that if you have a single WP installation it's worth checking out. ManageWP and seriously streamlined our management of WordPress installations and honestly I'm not sure what I would do if I had to go back to managing sites one by one. There is no scenario that ManageWP would not work in, from 1-100 sites I think ManageWP would fit the bill (both figuratively and literally). Try the free version to start you have nothing to lose.
