Good managemante program
Comments: This is a good program, there are modules for everything, so you could run or company on this software only. It does not integrate with every accounting software but i do believe it work with Quickbooks.
Pros: easy to use, web based, easy deployment with support, some accounting software integration are available, not expensive.
Cons: creating custom reports and workflows can be confusing. The ticketing system works well, there are some negative point to it as to automatically updating customers, you have to remember to apply templates to tickets in order for them to be updated.

Kaseya BMS- Starter PSA
Comments: Good, for smaller 1-5 man operations it is recommended as it is simpler to configure and thus being less time consuming overall.
Pros: It is quite simple in comparison to some major players such as Autotask and Connectwise.
Cons: It does make some attempts to offer deeper functionality such as project management, but the features are too shallow to really allow for mutil-team, multi-project management. This goes for other modules. I do like the fact that these are organic features and not added on haphazardly.

A great client tool software
Pros: Kaseya is a great tool not only to manage machines, but to also maintain them. Installing an agent is a breeze, and running scripts is easy to learn. Patch machines, remote to them, push software and set security protocol all through one system
Cons: Scripting maybebturn off some people but their are great tutorials and a support team to assist you in tweaking your needs.

Positive learning curve
Comments: We use it for managing our customers, so it is easy to gain remote access, set customer in the system and manage our internal users
Pros: We use the VSA and BMS, hosted version of Kaseya, and the ability to access it anywhere is great, it's easy to gain remote access and set control.
Cons: some configuration can be cumbersome, the navigation tabs are not always easy to navigate or figure out what is meant to be where within the page.

Incorporating Kaseya BMS for our business has increased the managebility of our clients.
Comments: The primary benefits of Kseya BMS is the ability to organize our clients, track changes in the ticketing system as well as simplify our billing through one tool.
Pros: What one of the best parts of Kaseya BMS is that is ti web based. No specific, Operating System or browser needed. This allows our technical team to work in this system anywhere anytime.
Cons: The most significant drawback seems to be the reporting and granular configuration of options. It is difficult to find a 'multi-tenant RMM tool withj this much power and every feature.

Best ticketing system I've used. Have used Connectwise and TigerPaw and Kaseya service desk.
Comments: Much easier to keep track of tickets efficently.
Pros: Ease of use, speed of new feature request implementation, clean/modern interface, mobile interface.
Cons: Needs the ability to multiple project managers for a single project. Would be nice to have calendar view for time entry.

Not the pretiest, but perfect for MSPs like me
Daniel db B.
Comments: a way to track tickets from inception to resolution, way to track billable time for clients, way to track projects, way to track crm info
Pros: I love that the software does everything in one screen related to my ticket tracking system. I also like the quickbooks integration.
Cons: It takes a few more clicks to get around inside the software, also I don't like that there isn't a mobile app. Sure the site loads on mobile, but its clunky.

Excellent management tool for service desks.
Comments: Worth the investment for a medium sized service desk of 200 users.
Pros: Easily integrated into existing networking environments. We implemented this as an on-premise solution and it worked very well to service and support our service desk in their daily support needs.
Cons: The tool fell down a little in agent management and would sometimes require more administration then the team could dedicate to it.

Still waiting for the page to load. Looks dated but is very functional.
Comments: I really like the ability to reset the local admin password for local PC's with this software running.
Pros: Price point for what you get seems reasonable. Allowed us to actively monitor all systems setup in our environment.
Cons: I found the product to be a bit slow and dated looking but it does functionally work. Found most of the features contained are better provided with many market alternatives.

You get what you pay for, but a fraction of other PSAs
Pros: One feature that stands out above other PSAs is the rich text abilities of the ticketing system. I can send ticket updates with bold, italic, numbered or bullet lists, and several other options. It's a refreshing inclusion.
Cons: Billing is a terrible, horrible, no good feature. You have to approve billing items, then create invoices, then go into each invoice and choose an invoice "template", then send them out to clients. There's too many silly steps.

Kaseya as admin application
Pros: I love the idea that we have a control on all pc in our company that installed the agent. Also the installation is not visible to users.
Cons: We have users that experiencing an issue in speed and upon investigation, the culprit on this is Kaseya BMS.

So far, great product!
Comments: We haven't even used all features and are looking to move completely over into the accounting and ticketing system very soon.
Ease of use
Quick customer support
Friendly, knowledgeable staff is usually on hand to help as soon as we need it
Doesn't link with current software we have for tracking
Perhaps not a con of the software, but we currently have proprietary programs that we are trying to integrate

BMS is a serviceable CRM at a good price, but leaves a few things to be desired.
Comments: We saved some money over our previous CRM.
Pros: In a word: value. BMS is very reasonable priced CRM with some great features. It's easy to use, cloud based, and generates tickets directly from Kaseya's PSA.
Cons: We transferred from a more established CRM to Kaseya. Given the cost and the fact that we already utilized Kaseya's VSA it seemed like a natural move. That said, we've experience a few issues. The client portal isn't as polished as we'd like. Inventory tracking is bad to the point of non-functional, and lacks the ability to even transfer between locations. Feature request are not quickly addressed. The cloud service lags or drops more than we'd like. Asset management is not great. Integrations are starting to catch up , but they've been slow in coming. Even the way items are listed on tickets is cumbersome.

Easy to use. Straight forward
Comments: Makes my job easier
Pros: Ticket creation and time tracking makes doing my job much easier. Ability to assign multiple engineers is nice too
Cons: Lots of menus. Automation could be better. Creating a daily master ticket immediately produces 365 emails. Would be nice to create a master ticket without that.

Slight learning curve. Very intuitive. Easy management
Pros: It seems very intuitive. Management of modules is very easy, and its easy on the eyes. I like how the pages flow when navigating, and a bunch of different windows dont open all over the place.
Cons: It almost seems like its in a Beta stage. Admins cant delete charges or entries on tickets, You cant do batch invoicing, When you complete a ticket it doesnt get archived, but stays in whatever queue it originated (cluttering up the queue), etc. All are pretty common things in other CRMs

Kaseya BMS is like a diet PSA tool
Pros: Very nice interface and workflow options. The functionality that is there is pretty good and they're adding to it all the time.
Cons: Lack of some essential functionality that many bigger MSPs may need. Support isn't that great since the product is so new for Kaseya.

The Experience has been an amazing transformation of our Help desk
Pros: The ease of use and the adaptivity of the design make the learning curve almost not existent. My Team is up and running with all features in a matter of days
