What I like about Atera is it's user friendly GUI, simplicity and overall performance. Atera has plenty of features, especially at it's price point. Unlike other RMM's, Atera offers a base price, with an unlimited amount of devices. This is a huge pro, as it allows us to test certain things on specific devices before rolling everything out, without being charged a "per device" fee. It's also nice to have in general, as with the remote support integrations, it can be utilized to remotely access (via integrated Splashtop for FREE) specific machines as well, while still avoiding that "per device" fee. The integrated ticking system is quite convenient as well. It saves from having to purchase third party software to handle similar tasks (which are required by most RMM's nowadays.) Overall, my business currently relies on Atera for a multitude of tasks, which it performs very well at.

When we started our IT Managed Services business, we had gone with another vendor for PSA, RMM, and Remote Support. After spending thousands of dollars and wasting untold hours doing configurations, we thought that there had to be a better way. That is when we found Atera! I only wish we would have found Atera sooner because we would have saved so much time and money. It is clear that Atera was built from the ground up, by people who understand what it's like to run an MSP. We setup the free trial, then had Atera up and running in literal MINUTES. Seriously, in minutes we had the entire thing configured, with our branding and email and automated ticketing responses. Also, the fact that you are not charged for every agent has been such a blessing to our clients because that means that, we are able to put agents onto systems that we otherwise would not have. So, even system that only get break fix support, can now have an agent on them, which allows us to remotely troubleshoot them. This fact alone saves tons of money and time! Bottom line, if you are a new MSP or even a seasoned provider, you will get a tremendous value from choosing or switching to Atera. One last thing I will say. Since Atera recently moved the entire platform over a Microsoft Azure infrastructure, they have been pushes out updates and improvements a breakneck pace!

Things have been great. I am a one man shop and even though I have been with Atera a few months now, I still consider myself an onboarding customer. I am no longer taking on new clients as my workload is full, but I do feel that once I am completely switched over, not only will I be more organized, but I will also be saving a lot of money that can be reinvested.

Atera gives me the tools I need to provide remote monitoring and management of my client's IT. It's got a robust and easy-to-set-up NMS, excellent remote access tools and automation is straightforward and intuitive. Initial setup was very easy and I can deploy the agent via an installer or Active Directory. There is an Agent for MacOS which actually works. There's a nice little client database for me to track client configurations and notes. There is a helpdesk system that I do not use at present as I have another combined helpdesk/ordering/billing system that I have used for some time. Atera charge by the agent, not the node, meaning it is incredible value for money and it enables me to be ultra-competitive on pricing too where the situation calls for it.

Main features

Remote Monitoring and Management

Atera’s remote monitoring and management feature lets you monitor and control hundreds of networks from a single console. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a laptop, desktop, or mobile device, updates are delivered to you in real time, allowing you full visibility into the health of your entire IT stack, as well as the ability to provide immediate assistance to your customers when the need arises.

With this app, you get real-time updates on hardware resources, network and IP monitoring, Windows updates, SNMP monitoring, users who are logged in, website monitoring, Active Directory, VMware, SQL Server, SNMP-enabled devices, and many more. Customizable notifications can be emailed to you, so you’re immediately alerted of system failures or possible failures that can impact end-user activities.

Atera also automates patch installations, such as Windows updates, Microsoft Office and device driver updates, Java and Adobe updates, and so on.

Professional Services Automation

Atera’s professional services automation feature is equipped with a CRM functionality that allows you to manage all customer information in one place: contacts, contracts, devices, SLAs, tickets, and file attachments, among others. It has helpdesk and ticketing capabilities powered by a time tracking and ticketing system created for both on-site and helpdesk tasks.

So customers need not always create tickets for each issue they encounter or query they need answered, Atera lets you build a comprehensive knowledge base that provides step-by-step guides they can refer to at their convenience to solve problems on their own. Atera’s integrated billing system is designed to automate billing and invoicing activities.

Remote Access and Support

Gone are the days when IT people need to physically be where a workstation is to fix a problem or perform security and system health checks. Atera’s remote access, control, and support feature allows MSPs and IT teams to control servers and workstations from anywhere, so end users are guaranteed uninterrupted access to business-critical files and applications.

Remote access can be initiated from the Tickets, Alerts, and Devices windows in the Atera user interface, and file transfers can be done for every support session, whether attended or unattended. Atera allows remote access even for hosts with multiple monitor displays.

Mobile Technician Management

For technicians servicing client infrastructure on site, work remotely, or are always on the go, Atera’s mobile technician management feature lets you access ticket and customer data, wherever you are, using your smartphone.

Once logged in to Atera, various commands available to a ticket can be viewed from the Ticket Properties screen, including asking the customer to sign off the work order. Mobile access can be turned on or off, depending on the technician’s access permissions.

Advanced Analytics

Atera reports fall into several category buckets: General, Monitoring, Technician Performance, Profitability, and Satisfaction. The General category includes load analysis and SLA. Monitoring has system at a glance, customer health, agent health, auditor, and Microsoft licensing. Technician Performance covers technician comparison and performance reports.

Profitability carries reports about customer profitability, most and least profitable retainer customers, and billing. The Satisfaction category provides information on the number of satisfied and unsatisfied customers. All reports are accessible from the Reports section of the Atera dashboard.


Integrations

Atera integrates with third-party business tools through Zapier.
