Here is why Databox is better than Soonr
First of all, Databox offers greater flexibility by providing both self-hosted and hosted solutions, as compared to Soonr’s hosted-only solution. For Soonr and AutoTask customers that are looking for the increased security, control and compliance of a self-hosted solution, Databox is the right fit.
Secondly, after AutoTask’s acquisition of Soonr to create the AutoTask Workplace, there were pricing changes; the partner strategy and relationships changed; and the development and issue fixing cycle changed. Databox is a better alternative for the stability of both the product and the partner relationship.
Finally, for ConnectWise customers who were using Soonr in the past, there may be a conflict of interest when using ConnectWise as a PSA tool, but also using a Workspace solution from AutoTask. Databox is here to help with the peace of mind.
