I cannot believe this is free!

Simply Superb!

Simply Superb!

Pros

Besides the fact that the features I use is free, the easy deployment and setup is simply mind boggling, to be free. Usually free things are not very user friendly, but boy am I wrong with Action1. Simply superb!

Cons

None that I can find to mention here, especially after I'm getting it for free...

Great Service to MSP

Reviewed on 27/11/2023

Pros

As a sideline MSP, it is great that there are 100 free endpoints to get me going until I can expand my business. It allows me to use high-level tools without the startup cost and expand from there.

Cons

Not really a con, but the remote desktop does need some additional features. It is great for basic remote options but other services definitely offer more.

Great resource for smaller companies

Reviewed on 13/07/2021

Pros

I appreciate the pricing and functionality of this software. It may be basic in comparison to other applications, but it does a good job with hardware inventory and software patch tracking. I also like the remote control ability. Not as robust as some application, but is still very useful.

Cons

Remote control could use some enhancements. The option to turn off the request for users to accept the remote control connection. Often can't make the connection to the client. No error message.

Response from Action1

Action1 has become an indispensable tool in our toolbox. Actually, it is more like a toolbox of tools. We have software deployments, patching, and scripts which set configurations all running automatically. They are continually improving their platform as well and I am optimistic that the product will just keep getting better.

Pros

Action1 automation policies ensures all our systems are patched. Action1 also streamlines our new workstation deployment. We just install Action1 and then all other required apps get deployed by automation policies. Super easy!

Cons

Reboot prompts need improvement. Currently you can notify a user that a reboot will occur at a specified time and they can either reboot now or snooze the message. There should be an option to allow them to cancel the reboot up to a certain number of days.

There where three things we need to solve in our management of client systems 1. Timely patching in a tight windows of 1am-6am, seven days a week this was achieved 2. Ability to run customised power shell scripts easily and efficiently3. To be able to monitor and check the results of the first 2

Pros

This has been a game changer in endpoint patch management, I have used many of the major RMM's and this is a much better tool at Considering the diverse range of clients we cater to, with 5-30 endpoints each, spanning industries such as healthcare and entertainment, providing service within limited windows of 1am-6am, seven days a week, can be quite challenging. However, this tool empowers us to confidently navigate these constraints and ensure we meet all necessary requirements for each client.

Cons

1. Remote desktop lacks some features 2. Navigate back from policy history to the endpoint in the group area3. Add terminal shell and chat functionality
