Atera vs. PDQ
PDQ is a convenient Atera alternative that offers robust software deployment and patch management features for Windows devices. In contrast, Atera offers a piecemeal approach where you need to budget for a pricey plan and integrations if you want all the bells and whistles.
See how PDQ and Atera compare
Atera dabbles in virtually all the common IT tasks, from patch management to cybersecurity to ticketing. But access to the full range of features requires a higher-level subscription and often third-party integrations, massively increasing the price.
PDQ focuses squarely on patch management, inventory management, and software deployment for Windows devices, giving you unmatched control and flexibility to create seamless workflows. And your subscription to Deploy & Inventory or Connect includes all the product features for one low price — no need to cut corners to stay within your budget.
