It depends on what you are monitoring.  Servers, networking, databases, apps, etc.  Nagios is one of the most, if not the, most popular tools.

Can you number your requirements, because each needs different tool.

For most monitoring/inventory you can adapt SNMP and nagios. What remains is probably up to finance.
We do account computer and replaceable parts separately, so we can move RAM of 4 old computers into one and keep that working for another 3 years.

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

I've predominately used LANSweeper as we had predominately windows network.  It is WMI based but can do an inventory of other OS's it just takes a bit more setting up as the windows stuff happens out of the box.  It also has remote desktop support via the built in mstsc or vnc.

Kaseya is also very good and allows the users to raise tickets when they're having issues as well rather than always the other way around.  If I had the choice between Kaseya and LANSweeper, I would choose Kaseya.  Scheduling disk defrags for instance is easy.  I could go on and on but I've been happy with Kaseya.
