With this upgrade, LabTech MSPs gain additional benefits and power in customer service and management:

  • Rapid response to activities by instantly connecting to Mac or Linux systems
  • Audit systems hardware and software to enable visibility into system components
  • Execute remote command-line options to perform advanced troubleshooting or system administration
  • End-user system tray functionality for quick access to common tasks such as creating tickets, sending screen captures, viewing system information and more
  • Monitor and alert/report on key system health indicators

"Modern MSPs today are challenged to manage customers with mixed operating systems in one environment, and this development makes many of their monitoring and troubleshooting tasks simpler than ever," said Matt Nachtrab, CEO of LabTech Software. "We're excited to add this powerful feature to the LabTech platform and hope this increases our partners overall efficiency and productivity."
