The Inside Scoop on Autotask PSA
Comments: While Autotask PSA isn't perfect, it has definitely improved the way we manage our projects and services. The centralization of data, scheduling, resource management, and integration capabilities are all great features that have made our lives easier. However, it's important to be prepared for the software's complexity and occasional performance hiccups. If you can navigate these challenges, Autotask PSA can be a valuable tool for managing your professional services.
I've been using Autotask PSA for some time now, and I must admit that it has made a difference in how we manage our projects and services. One of the things I appreciate the most is the centralization of all our data in one place. It has made it much easier to track and manage our projects, resources, and clients. The scheduling and resource management features have been a game-changer, helping us allocate the right resources to the right tasks and projects. I also love the integration with other software we use, like our CRM and accounting tools. It has simplified our workflows and made everything more seamless.
Despite the benefits, Autotask PSA does have a few downsides. The first thing that comes to mind is the complexity of the software. It took me quite a bit of time to get comfortable with all the features and options. I wish they had more straightforward tutorials or help guides to make it easier for new users. Another issue I've encountered is the occasional slow performance, especially when generating reports or loading large amounts of data. It can be a bit frustrating when you're trying to get work done quickly.
Business management made easy
Comments: Using PSA for capture issues within our IT business and simply bill time makes for much less overhead time spent.
Easily record issues within tickets and allocate time to bill within one page.
Layout or UI could use an update, which I believe is on the way. we make do with the reports but using the custom reports can be difficult.
A decent ticketing tool but lagging behind the competition
We have used Autotask PSA since before I joined the company in July 2015. We are well used to it. It's been fantastic for managing service desk requests and incidents. We've also extensively used the TaskFire option to allow customers to manage tickets natively. This ability to collaborate has been very valuable and lead to reduced wait times and ticket-ownership confusion.
We have been looking for other ticketing solutions to gauge the features we have. In every single tool we've found that they all mirror what Autotask can do. There's nothing special that sets Autotask apart. In fact we ended up using IT Glue for knowledge management and password management in 2017 because the inbuilt tools in Autotask were so bad. We're currently in the process of moving to ServiceNow.
Comments: I am really hoping over the next few quarters there are major UI/UX changes for quality of life.
What I like most about the Autotask PSA is the workflow rules. These rules are well structure and allow for easy automation
Autotask PSA is in a odd growth period where it has some features and ease of use abilities. It lacks in the UI/UX division. Often to do one task you need to press several buttons and it also is stuck between updated items and original items making buttons and looks different in some areas.
Still a good product post acquisition
Comments: Autotask is great, billing processes and automation are top notch, it is a very mature platform.
We're able to leverage heavily ticket automation in autotask resulting in a very high revenue per technical employee. Feature rich, integration rich.
Reporting is so crappy it's barely usable, much of what we use is either basic dashboard level reporting (which is good) or built outside of autotask.
