phpipam isnt developed anymore
I have an idle racktables server ready for production, its ugly/sexy and has everything I want except that its got a learning curve I havent sobered up enough to get a full grasp on, but its got all the documentory and reporting features I want, would love it if Bertram bought it out and integrated it, id be so exited Id get the vapors.

        We use Powercode, they ebb and flow. Other than simon who
        escaped by the skin of his teeth after murdering the guy
        before him I think they have gladiator fights for the lead
        role because every time a new lead comes in the last one
        disappears off the face of the earth. I imagine being in the
        office up there looks like something out of mad max.

        But overall, its a satisfying product, the inventory component
        is absolutely useless, but the rest is pretty reliable.
        Customers like the feel of the portal interface, I would
        prefer we had the ability to manipulate it more, but I also
        want my own pony named Miguel.
        Support responsiveness is normally pretty good, occasionally
        it gets meh, but I think you have that with any company
        depending on the work load.

        What I do like about it, is that I dont have to know much to
        manage it, The server build is down to a cut and past CLI job
        if it needs rebuilt. It performs well in a decent VM host.

        It really appears they are moving away from user driven
        development (there used to be constant interaction) toward
        more of a programmed development cycle, which is good and bad,
        but mostly a positive move.

        It would be nice if they had clean IPAM, i still have a set of
        excel spreadsheets for master subnet documentation, but I dont
        think there is such a beast in IPAM that would satisfy everyone.

        The ticketing system became super useful once they added
        external email accounts, it allowed us to decommission a
        secondary ticketing system. Its only good for our ISP side,
        not our contract services side however because it doesnt offer
        clean time tracking or multiple tech separation

        My boss is very frugal when it comes to anything that
        generates a recurring cost, and he sees Powercode as a
        beneficial recurring cost, so that does say something about
        the product.

        I cuss them every couple months over something or other, its
        usually 50/50 whether its something I screwed up, or a bug in
        their system, but it always gets resolved. We have an ongoing
        issue with email fetching that happens, but they gave me a cli
        tool to resolve it, and its caused by something external and
        outside their control, so I cant hold it against them.

        There is currently no way to easily reset the tracking metrics
        on tickets and times, but thats no deal breaker, they will
        eventually clean it up.

        If youre looking for actual inventory management with any type
        of valuation, its definetly not the product. Azotel had that
        when we were looking into them, and I think you could tie in
        crystal reports to get some really amazing data, but it seems
        like Azotel went to sleep

            Feature-wise, freeside is on par with the big boys these
            days.. Can't think of anything it doesn't have that an ISP

            The new version even has tower coverage mapping... very

                Could I trouble you all for a quick survey /
                recommendation on billing systems?

                I've been looking at;

                Power code ( seems like too many red flags with this

                Platypus ( good price, but I don't want to become a
                dev just to bill my customers)

                Visp seems like a decent option?

                Wisp Mon? Don't know much about them, prices seem
                high, haven't heard anything bad so that's a good sign?

                Swift fox? ( Seems like unpopular option maybe because
                they're new?)

                Sonar? Maybe that's the one?
