Unify People, Processes, and Data
The Ticketing module is ITIL-aligned to help ensure technicians hit their service level agreement (SLA) targets. Tickets are a single system of record for all support issues, service requests, incidents, and emails. MSPs can create customised ticket interfaces, called Ticket Categories, which display ticket information that is critical for a particular workflow or a specific stage in the ticket lifecycle.
Autotask PSA’s Task user interface helps ensure projects come in on-time, on-budget, and on-spec, with categories, predecessorsuccessor timelines, checklists, and insight widgets. The Project Management module automates project workflows to hit targets with increased visibility into event tracking. Users can connect with colleagues instantly with integrated email and put the right people on the right tasks.
The Autotask Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) module allows users to manage their sales pipeline by creating and tracking opportunities. Various quotes can be added to each opportunity that include defined products or services. Once the opportunity is won, workflow rules can run predefined automated processes such as installing the quoted product to a client’s configuration items. Also, different company types allow MSPs to distinguish different clients, leads, prospects, vendors, and partners in their database.
Autotask contracts are optional billing arrangements that provide flexibility in setting labor rates, billing methods, and managing prepayments for services. Autotask PSA allows MSPs to manage a multitude of contract types, terms and billing options to help ensure compliance, service quality, and a reduced billing process.
Autotask PSA’s Document Manager improves efficiency by providing quick and easy access to standardised documentation so technicians spend more time resolving issues. Document Manager also improves productivity by outlining processes/procedures per client, enabling MSPs to quickly develop standard procedures, and easily reference knowledge base articles and support manuals.
Manage security levels, time off, work groups, and dispatch calendar to keep the entire team organised and on-task. Display all calendar items such as service calls, to-dos, and appointments, and establish and track weekly billable hours goals, manage workgroups, and track skills, degrees, and employee certificates.
Autotask PSA offers a wide array of reporting capabilities. Dashboards and widgets provide a real-time view of business metrics and allow for immediate action with a single click. The LiveReports custom report engine is a powerful but easy-to-use tool that allows authorised users to copy and edit pre-built reports or create new ones. The Report Data Warehouse allows users to access the organisation’s Autotask PSA data for use in another report creation tool.
Inventory and Procurement:
Autotask Inventory models the entire workflow from purchasing to installation at the customer site. Set up and manage inventory in various locations; check availability, reserve, or pick inventory items; generate and manage purchase orders; and more. Enabling Procurement streamlines purchasing, receiving and delivery of items, and creates a workflow that integrates sales with the final delivery of items.
Autotask PSA has partnered with over 200 MSP-centric applications including RMM, CRM, accounting, email protection, managed print, business continuity, and cloud storage solutions. These integrations are developed to simplify workflows—from customer acquisition and management to service delivery, resolution, and billing. Autotask PSA also has a full REST and SOAP API, making it easier for developers to build integrations into Autotask PSA and increasing the speed at which third-party integrated solutions are available to MSPs.
MSPs need flexibility to manage client demands and get work done while away from their desks. Autotask LiveMobile enables employees to access their necessary work while on-the-go. Technicians can log in first thing in the morning to see if any alerts came in overnight. Project managers can track the status of projects and tasks. Sales managers can access their sales dashboards and drill into lists of opportunities. Finally, CEOs can keep their finger on the pulse of the organisation, all from the convenience of their iOS or Android device.
