Syncro vs. Atera

Comparing all-in-one RMM & PSA platforms seems like apples-to-apples, but when you dig deep into the details, Syncro is the clear winner.

“Syncro has so many good things that it was a simple choice when we compared PSA/RMM services.”
– Josh H.

Why Syncro Beats Atera

Atera pales in comparison to Syncro features like automated billing, powerful scripting, responsive support, and plentiful integration options.

Automated billing

Syncro’s dynamic billing and payment processing functions help you spend less time on admin tasks while capturing more revenue.

  • Dynamically count employees, assets, or policies and bill accordingly so you never have to worry about over- or undercharging clients again.
  • Set up recurring invoices with prepaid billing against stored credit cards.
  • Pull all unbilled ticket charges and add them as line items to a single invoice.
  • Integrate with accounting systems and payment processors to save time.

“While I love the ease of use and the low cost, the best part for me was time tracking and billing. I found that [Syncro] paid for itself in less than a month by tracking my time and keeping me from leaving money on the table.”
– Creighton C.

Powerful scripting

Syncro’s versatile scripting allows you to work the way you want with unrivaled power.

  • Customize and automate workflows almost limitlessly with Syncro’s robust scripting capabilities in PowerShell, VBScript, Mac, and batch scripting.
  • Pull from customizable platform variables, including custom fields to run scripts.
  • Tap into a library of one-line PowerShell commands to connect your scripts directly to your ticketing.
  • Access a free library offering hundreds of ready-to-go scripts from both the Syncro team and fellow Syncro users.

“Fantastic experience all around. The scripting engine—if you can script it, Syncro will run it! If you can’t script it, Syncro has a community library of scripts to choose from!”
– Jessica L.
