Connectwise Automate

Product Summary

ConnectWise Automate, previously known as LabTech, is a remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform that simplifies and automates managing, maintaining, and troubleshooting endpoints. Its scripting function allows managed service providers (MSPs) and IT teams to automate routine processes and workflows and customize the platform to meet their needs.

Use Cases

  • Remote endpoint management:
    From a single view, users can monitor device status and manage endpoints, solving performance or security issues without disruptive downtime
  • Patch and software management:
    Deploy applications and install updates using the solution ensure that devices are configured, optimized, and secure.
  • Automation:
    Cut down on routine IT workloads by automating repeatable tasks.

Shortcomings

  • Difficult implementation:
    Initial implementation of ConnectWise Automate is complex, costly, and time-consuming, and users often need consultants to help implement and use the solution.
  • Complex interface:
    Technicians can take a long time to fully understand how to utilize the platform’s features and settings.
  • Lack of support for non-Windows devices:
    The solution is built more for Windows devices with less patching, actions, and data for other OS.

IT Glue

Product Summary

IT Glue is a platform that primarily focuses on IT documentation. The software is designed for IT service providers as secure storage for IT infrastructure information, configurations, passwords, and all confidential client data shared within the organization. IT Glue is a central repository of information for IT personnel to work on and share.

Use Cases

  • Structured Documentation:
    IT Glue’s marketing heavily promotes the software as a documentation management platform focusing on a well-put documentation framework.
  • Relationship Mapping:
    The software links all related items together in the documentation. This makes information readily available to anyone working on it, which saves time and effort.
  • Easy-to-use permissions:
    Granular permissions and other levels of permissions allow technicians to manage access to documentation, enhancing the security of stored data.

Shortcomings

  • Limited RMM capabilities:
    Since IT Glue focuses on documentation, it has basic RMM capabilities pivoted to managing and documenting specific aspects of IT infrastructures.
  • Integration Issues:
    Getting the data flowing on integrations is time-consuming.
  • Inferior Search Functionality:
    It could do better on its search feature, especially when it comes to finding where information is stored and archival search.
  • No Free Trial:
    IT Glue doesn’t offer free trials, which is a downside for IT decision-makers who want to weigh their options first.
