“Multiple Implementations”

OverallI've worked with some other, similar products before, and this is by far the most capable. Additionally, the company is U.S. based and support is almost always available the same day with quick resolutions.
ProsIt does exactly what you need it to in terms of Asset Management, Remote Support, and software deployment
ConsSo far I haven't had anything bad that hasn't been able to be resolved

“Syam Software”

OverallCustomer support is outstanding! Representative always responds immediately to any request for help. Their level of assistance and training far exceeds any other software vendor by far! Having so many software components integrated into a singular software package has improved productivity, efficiency and overall software costs.
ProsWe use this software for our Asset Management, Ticketing System , MDM, Power Management, alerts on server/computer health, storage issues, reporting on what software is installed on our computers and remote access to our clients. We also have the ability to push 3rd party software to our computers . The Asset Management has helped us with our Inventory, assigning devices to staff and students and has been beneficial to us in collection of chromebooks at the end of the year. The import and export functions have been of great value to us. The ticketing system has allowed us to work more efficiently. Our users are able to create tickets easily by going to our helpdesk portal or by launching the desktop icon from their system tray. By customizing the ticket system, we are able to get as much information from our users immediately for us to assess and address the problem as quickly as possible and in some cases tickets are automatically assigned to a technician. We are also able to take advantage of the remote desktop feature directly to assist our users if a visit is not necessary. The MDM has been the best solution for our District. We have purchased and trialed many different products and have found Syam the best for managing our iPads, Apps and Apple TV's . We just got Google Integration into the MDM. We are still exploring this, but have found it to be very helpful already. Our technicians are just starting to use this feature but their feedback has been positive.
ConsI really have no Cons. If there is something we think would be useful to us, it is usually addressed in an upcoming update.

“SyAM one stop for all!”

OverallIt has been exceptional!
ProsBy using the SyAM applications - it has reduced the time in so many different ways. Making the daily work load so much less than it was. We use SyAM for asset management , one benefit is that is has taken away the task of touching each machine to grab the mac address for MAC authentication. We just run a report and grab it from the SyAM asset management application. It also helps us with our yearly inventory report that needs to be presented to the BOE. We use SyAM for our MDM - by using SyAM we touch the machines once when they come in and then we never see them again unless the screen breaks. We use SyAM for our ticketing system. We had a reduction in staff this year and the ticketing system has been amazing. When a ticket is created - it is sent out to the techs and they are able to respond in a reasonable time, making everyone happy. I am so glad we have this system. The support from SyAM is fantastic. I have never been disappointed.
ConsI would like to clean up the ticketing system so it flows better for the end user. I am pretty sure this is on my end not SyAM. I can't really think of anything that we do not like about the software.

“SyAM Software”

OverallSyAM has been a good solution for us this last year. We were looking for a system which could help us eliminate multiple vendors and costs for MDM, inventory, helpdesk, power management and software installs. We are actively working with SyAM to discuss desired features and adjustments to the system and are thankful they are willing to be part of the conversation.
ProsWe have tried many helpdesk/MDM/inventory systems and this one is very intuitive to learn. The customization level is decent and the support from the company staff has been amazing. Someone is always a phone call away and willing to explain or remote into the system. Their support documentation is also very detailed which makes it easy to follow along with steps to something you are unfamiliar with. The MDM groups system is wonderful. This saves us a lot of time over previous systems that we have used. Moving from bucket to bucket is also a breeze which makes things quickly. We have not full explored he functionality of features such as remote access or the machines "health" statues. We plan on using SyAM for the foreseeable future and I look forward to exploring more of its features.
ConsThe cons that I have about this software seem to all be items SyAM is working on, which is nice. The MDM system currently does not allow assignment based on ID's like some other systems. Currently the helpdesk system is not integrated with Google SSO sign in for our organization, which does not allow us to use the helpdesk end-user portal. In the future they say this will be possible and we are very much looking forward to it! I would also love to see an upgraded UI. Things like color coding, clearly labeled organization, and graphic design go a long way with technology staff.

“Goes above and beyond. ”

OverallWe were looking for a product to easily push out software. Syam had the way to do and fairly simple. The other features were an added bonus and saved us money. We also switched to their helpdesk solution as well
ProsNot only does it do power management, it also does inventory, helpdesk ticketing, pushes out software and patches, integrates into your network and chrome or Apple devices. Also you to manage your mobile devices. All around great product that ties multiple features into one product.
ConsLots of emails for the ticketing system but with email rules it can be managed or there is the option to turn off alerts.

Stephen Thank you for your positive review. Its great to hear that our features are benefiting your school district with managing your assets. We've enjoyed working with you rolling out SyAM over the last few years. I agree the emails from ticketing can be overwhelming and we've got changes in the pipeline to enable more control around alerting. Nick
