Value Proposition

Atera offers pay-per-technician pricing for IT departments, where you’re charged based on the amount of technicians using the platform, as opposed to per-device, so you can continue adding more devices without growing your bottom line! 

 Atera’s base pricing includes all the key IT management features, including RMM, patch management, remote access, PSA, reporting and analytics, and IT automation.

Atera’s RMM pricing differs from that of most competitors, which are structured based on pay-per-endpoint. With pay-per-endpoint, you pay extra every time you add more endpoints/devices to the platform. 

Another differentiator for Atera is the Atera Copilot, your new IT companion, designed to support you with your everyday tasks and streamline your workflow. With Atera Copilot, you can troubleshoot IT issues using real-time device diagnostics and AI-recommended actions, instantly summarize tickets to expedite troubleshooting, and generate tailored responses with your selected tone of voice. This powerful tool provides proven AI solutions based on device diagnostics and ticket history, generates knowledge base articles directly from your ticket resolutions, and creates custom, context-specific scripts in seconds. Simply insert a description to receive tailored OID recommendations or convert your words into precise terminal commands instantly. Whether you prefer written or voice communication, Atera Copilot is here to make your IT management more efficient and effective.

Customer review on Atera pricing

Atera’s customer reviews highlight our transparent pay-per-technician pricing, making it a cost-effective and great value for money IT management solution.

Let’s summarize a few reviews related to Atera pricing:

  • A cost-predictive pricing structure: One G2 user mentions that Atera’s transparent pay-per-technician pricing model simplifies budgeting and cost prediction, giving the company a clear financial advantage. The same reviewer mentions that the pricing is highly beneficial for small businesses with a small number of technicians managing a high number of endpoints.
  • Unlimited endpoints: A Capterra user appreciates that whether you have 5 or 5000 endpoints, the price remains the same. This means that the pricing is more predictable and stable. Another Capterra user mentions managing 250 devices with two technicians, so Atera’s pricing makes sense for them.
  • More value than with competitors: A Capterra user points out that Atera’s pricing is fair, considering the range of IT management features it offers. The same user mentions that Atera’s pay-per-technician base price allows users to test certain things on devices before releasing everything without being charged per device.
  • Significant cost savings: A GetApp user appreciates that Atera charges per technician instead of per endpoint, unlike most competitors. The same reviewer says Atera is a great value for anyone looking for an RMM/PSA IT management solution.

Flexible and predictable 

To summarize, Atera offers flexible and transparent pricing for IT departments based on pay-per-technician. Atera enables IT organizations to scale their operations without incurring prohibitive costs by charging on a per-technician basis rather than per device.

Atera’s AI-powered capabilities, including AI scripting, proactive IT troubleshooting, and AI-powered helpdesk and ticketing, provide significant benefits in terms of productivity, cost-effectiveness, and overall IT management.
