Here is a quick tip on how to save some money and at the same time get some free agents on your IT Center/Essentials account.
It all has to do with price breaks.
Kaseya’s IT Center/Essentials is sold on-demand with no commitments or requirements. You can change the quantities at any time and the price gets better as your quantities increase. One of the things often overlooked is price breaks. Because there are significant price breaks at 10, 25, 50 and 100 (25, 50 100, 150, and 250 for IT Essentials), you should be paying attention to how many agents you are purchasing.
For example, if you need 40 agents, you would pay 40 * $4.95 per month for a total of $158.00, however if you bumped your purchased quantity to 50 agents you would only pay $147.50, a savings of $10.50 AND you would get 10 more agents to use for “free”.
Below is a cheat sheet to use showing where the breaks are (IT Center):

Another tip: Set a calendar reminder 2 days before your billing date, and review your quantities every month. Your billing date is the date you first paid for agents. Adjust quantities of all purchased services then.
