We use and love Solarwinds. MSP Manager with MSP RMM, and we also use their MSP Backup and Recovery. MSP Manager is not a fully built out PSA but it does what we need and have seen vast improvements recently. Solarwinds will also be easier and quicker to implement and deploy.

We use Solarwinds N-central and have been for years. We done comparison with other RMM tools and N-central seems to fit best for us. I highly recommend it.

Previous MSP used N-central. They had some issues here and there but after you figure your way around everything it's a decent platform. We used hosted solution.

We use N-Central in premise with about 1500 endpoints. Works good. The longer you use it, the better you get. There is lots to learn.

I've used Solarwinds N-Central with Connectwise Manage for about 10 years. The integrations have improved substantially over that time.I'd stay away from Automate if I were you. N-Central's overall look and feel is far better, especially if you plan to have customers interface directly with the RMM. The SNMP discovery and monitoring in N-Central rocks.
