Pros

Great organization of information including client information, tickets, and if needed documentation. Highly recommend as it's a great solution for an MSP of any size.
I love connectwise for IT helpdesk because there are so many ways to interact with the software. It provides the ability to look up customers fast, start tickets fast and resolve them quickly.
What I mainly love about this product is it really helps me delivering more consistent service to my beloved clients.

Pros

We are very pleased with the overall product capability, ease of use, and feature rich environment.
Simple and effective product, great value for the business with easy adaptation and good additives.
Strong ITIL based solution at a truly affordable price. I am an advisor for other companies and will recommend this product everytime.

Cons

First level support can be frustrating to work with at times. There seems to be lack of expertise and a lack of willingness to dig deep into issues in some occasions.
The biggest obstacle is the graphical interface which is not the most intuitive, since there are multiple hidden modules and for a novice user it can be difficult to manage the system.
The UI, the customer service, everything truthfully including their training which is the worst I have had to endure.

Cons

The service feedback is awful. We can't embed the question, we can't personalize our forms, even the service feedback e-mail is bad.
Currently we're worried about the performance and availability.
Due to the customization there are a lot of options so some times you get lost in menus due to so many options.
