More SCCM Pros »

"The project management needs improvement and there's a section of the product called configuration that also needs to be improved.""I have a problem with the reports available on the solution. I don't understand how to work with the reporting functionality. For example, when I want to give a report for a specific machine, ConnectWise doesn't seem to have this as an option. I'm not sure if I'm missing something, or if the reporting functionality is just poorly conceived."

More ConnectWise Automate Cons »

"Our company would prefer not rebooting computers while people are using them. There seems to be no strategy behind it.""Marketing: Our management doesn't understand that there is a piece of software which helps them automate and manage the entire network, as far as operating systems on computers.""The setup was complex and I faced a lot of problems initially because I was new to the solution.""I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.""This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.""Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.""This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.""The cost of the product can be improved."
