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.
