Overall Satisfaction with ManageWP

Our agency builds and manages dozens of WordPress websites and we were looking for a tool to help us more easily manage those sites. Specifically keeping up with plugin updates and WordPress core updates had been a challenge. It was very time consuming to have to login to so many websites and keep tracking of those individual sites separately. Additionally, we were using a number of disparate tools to handle things like incremental site backups and uptime monitoring which just added to the difficulty. We found ManagerWP and were blown aways by the comprehensive nature of the solution and the ease in which we can update and deploy plugins, updated WordPress core, translations and site backups all with the click of a button. Our development team uses ManageWP to keep our clients' sites up-to-date, backed up nightly and performing at their highest. It saves us considerable time and has made our hosting and maintenance plans more profitable.
  • Update, install, delete, activate, deactivate plugins across many websites, all with the click of a button
  • Manage nightly incremental backups and easily handle rollbacks to previous versions
  • Keep tabs on all our websites and needed updates, all in one convenient tool
  • When you have many updates going at the same time, you often have to refresh and/or log back in to the console to the status. The updates go through, but the console doesn't update automatically when you have many updates happening.
  • It would be nice to deploy plugins directly from ManageWP. You have to have a plugin installed on at least one site in order to deploy it on others.
  • The reporting functionality could be better.
  • We have certainly reduced the hours it takes to keep our clients' websites up-to-date. We used to lose money on our hosting plans, but now they are profitable.
  • The time savings has freed up our dev team to focus on other projects, as well as internal initiatives.
ManageWP is definitely the best in class product for WordPress website management. There are other tools such as InfiniteWP that do similar things, but don't have as complete an offering. Other options like WPEngine are also for hosting and we are not interested in that element. I think that ManageWP is the best tool out there for what it does.
If you are a WordPress development shop, or host a number of WordPress websites, this is for you. Even if you only have one website but are looking for an easy way to make updates, schedule backups and keep track of the maintenance of your site, this would be a great tool. The cost is reasonable and it saves time, while adding peace of mind with "Safe" updates.
