A List of Powerful Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) Tools for MSPs

A List of Powerful Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) Tools for MSPsMy blog post with A list of Professional Service Automation (PSA) Tools for MSPs has proven to be very popular, so I thought I’d create a similar post looking at another essential product for Managed Service Providers – the RMM.

What is an RMM Tool?

A Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) tool is an essential part of any Managed Service Provider (MSP) business.

An RMM tool is the software that helps your MSP business to proactively find, monitor and update client endpoints. These endpoints are traditionally workstations and servers, although modern RMM tools can monitor and manage smartphones, network devices and much more.

Why use an RMM tool?

By using RMM tools, you can automate many maintenance tasks and proactively be alerted to any issues that will affect your client.

You will find that a good RMM tool minimises the time you spend travelling to client sites, and allows your service desk to deal with multiple clients concurrently — a real efficiency (and, in turn, profitability) gain for your IT business.

Which RMM should I use?

There are dozens of RMM tools available to MSPs and IT Solution Providers.

Some questions to ask yourself when researching an RMM tool include:-

  • What type of endpoints do I want to monitor? Some RMM tools are PC-specific, others manage Apple Mac products, and others manage network devices. Which devices will your MSP need to manage?
  • Do you require patch management? Do you want to monitor endpoints, or proactively update them with the latest software? If you want to proactively update, is it just Microsoft products you want to manage, or other 3rd party products too?
  • Do you need PSA integration? If you’re already using a Professional Services Automation (PSA) tool, then you will want to make sure that any RMM tool you pick integrates with your PSA
