I'm a big fan of ConnectWise and when I found out the same folks were running Labtech, I gladly ditched the huge investment we had in N-ABLE and jumped in head first without even looking to see if there was any water in the pool.
I feel pretty stupid now but ConnectWise is hands down the best decision and investment we ever made, so I trusted them without question.
Now we have the "My Office Bundle" with ConnectWise, Labtech and Quosal in the arsenal. To be fair, I will say that my 2 sales/marketing people really like quosal. However, this Labtech thing is a disaster because of the support and really bad customer service.
I tried to set aside some frustration and yes, some anger too, when giving stars in the ratings. However, I can honestly say that the one star I gave to support was only because this venue will not allow me to give zero stars. I would almost rather deal with Verizon then Labtech support.
At this point, I would like to add that I am happy with my account rep. He seems to genuinely care and try to help but I can tell that he is frustrated by Labtech support as well.
We are sitting here trying to figure out how we can keep the monitoring commitments we have made to our clients when our monitoring platform has been down for a week. A WEEK! I realize now that I have stupidly put all my eggs in one basket and these guys pretty much own me so they can do whatever they want; we have no choice right now but to take it.
I'm going to give one more example of how things work at Labtech: When a support ticket is closed (even if the issue hasn't been resolved), you are sent an invitation to complete an online survey about the experience. At the end of the survey there is a note from "Bill MacDonald, Manager, Global client Services", that says: "If you have any specific questions, concerns, or simply would like to discuss your experience, please feel free to contact me anytime". His signature panel goes on to list "Direct: 813-397-4536" which is a disconnected number! If you call the main number, you will have to leave a message but don't bother, because he doesn't return his phone calls.
What I'm trying to say is don't make the same mistake we did. Stay away from Labtech, far away!

Wow, so not our experience w/ LabTech. Quite the opposite in fact. Sure, a couple of years ago, support needed some improvement. I have noted much improved service/support. I don't know anything about a number being diconnected obviously, but I've called Matt and talked w/ him about a couple of issues when things just took way too long to get resolved. I figured he would want to know about it and he was interested and insured resolution.
