Pros

What tipped the scale for me in the end was the friendliness and willingness to help that I experienced with the SimpleMDM staff.
SimpleMDM has been a fantastic tool to use to manage the thousand of devices we have deployed in the field. The features to customize the different components required for our deployment are amazing.
I like SimpleMDM because the price is competitive, it just works and I feel that I'm using the best in breed product in the MDM space. Just make sure you don't need to support Android.

Pros

I implemented Jamf pro blind, relying on the support team and good old documentation to help me out. The support team was fantastic and also teached me how to accomplish various tasks on the platform.
Jamf Pro has been reliable and a great Apple management solution for us. We are assured that any Mac coming in the door will be managed and managed reliably.
Super easy to use, makes Apple TV deployment super easy. The integration with DEP and all that fun stuff is pretty awesome.

Cons

The Groups should be collapsible. Exports should be able to contain everything (the group field is missing) and there's no filter/modification/selection on group view.
When I first starting enrolling devices I was a bit lost and enrolled a few devices incorrectly. I had to some searching of my own to finally get the devices to enroll correctly.
We're an outsourced US-based outsourced IT firm with clients in the medical space. I initially used Meraki to manage one of our clients but had all sorts of problems.

Cons

It actually makes my work processes super inefficient, because i'm constantly batting weird errors and frustrating password resets.
I'm in education so they're not making any money off is (given the high level of support everyone receives). There are no tiers of service, no packages for support, and no BS.
The interface can become confusing and overwhelming to novice user.
