Pros

This works like a charm and even users with little computerexperience can create tickets. Also the solutions part of servicedesk is awesome.
It gives the chance to create tickets with greater level of detail and that makes the time to resolution quicker, with less re-opened tickets and increased user satisfaction.
User friendly and I am getting what exact output I want. Especially with SDP I just love it the way it is designed and the outputs are just awesome.

Pros

Pulseway has THE best mobile RMM available, combined with their other services and add-on it makes for on of the best or the best MSP tools out there.
The scripting tools help me accomplish tasks effortlessly for tasks that are not built in to the system, which is rare. It is also a very versatile/customizable tool for monitoring and notifications.
Good monitoring tools and automation of tasks, good combination of features overall. Especially like having the PSA integration.

Cons

Software does have occasional hiccups and glitches, but the worst part is their support. It declined so much over the years that it's unbearable now.
Remote project management does not work for all platforms. Another disadvantage is that the software needs frequent updates.
Then sales contacts you a few days later. The sales person was rude and refused to renew our free license because I refused to buy any of the paid add ons or for a support license.

Cons

Difficult to uninstall sometimes. I am having trouble uninstalling from one particular PC.
The file transfer for remote control sessions is horrible. You can't sort or manage files, you can't type a directory path, you can't send directories.
I do miss grouping capabilities when working with antivirus menu.

Outstanding

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have never experienced such good support, from presales questions, onboarding, and support, to help me work through implementing solutions for my unique needs. I feel lucky I found this solution.

Pros

Pulseway has exceeded my expectation. It is managing all of our distributed computers. Even more impressive has been the customer support. My initial Product Specialist, Customer Success Manager, IT trainer, everyone, has been fantastic. I don’t have a memory of working with a company where every person has been so helpful and capable. Your product has been an excellent solution for our needs and your team is fantastic. Thanks for everything.

Cons

None at this time. Plus, regular updates keep adding great feratures.

Pulseway

The flagship of our company

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use the tool for most of our daily tasks such as remote access, alert management on items relevant to the administration of the IT environment, automation workflow for various problem solutions and kaspersky antivirus management, integrated into the complete solution itself.

Pros

Ease of use and implementation. Integration with Zendesk and Slack, plus integrated kaspersky antivirus.

Cons

Add ons Network Monitoring and Cloud Backup are very expensive when converting to our local currency

Premium RMM at Great Cost

Reviewed 5 years ago

Pulseway is a great RMM tool, and with the introduction of third party patch management I think they have the opportunity to become one of the best platforms on the market in features, ease of use and cost. Support requests were generally answered quickly, the setup and deployment was easy and the use of the platform was easy to learn. This is a great platform.

Pros

This RMM platform is incredibly easy to use and setup. Offering silent install of the agent, the ability to lock out the agent from users making changes and from our experience it used little system resources. The RMM comes with it's own integrated remote access tool which allows for seamless remote connection to client endpoints, as well as integrated remote command line tools and remote Powershell...

Cons

Third party patch management is just now being rolled out for Pulseway, a feature that many other RMM platforms we reviewed already had in place. We had to use a third party patch management platform to manage non-Microsoft patches. The antivirus integration (for Webroot) doesn't allow management from the dashboard - if you want to add sites or configure policies you have to connect to the Webroot...
