Asset Panda

Asset Panda I believe is well suited for even the smallest environment. The pricing for the software is very competitive and worth the value that it brings to solve a lot of problems that normally a lot of companies run into regarding inventory. This product has helped us save money on keeping track of assets that may of otherwise gotten lost and written out. We now know where everything is.

Lansweeper

Lansweeper I believe is well suited for any environment - its low cost and small footprint make it an easy addition to any organization, big or small, that is looking for an asset inventory solution that can either replace or supplement existing asset management systems. It may not be well suited for situations where a lot of customization is necessary, such as pulling in custom fields or details from equipment that don't reside in a registry.

Pros

Asset Panda

  • It is great for a non profit organization because you can add any columns you need to the asset. For example, I have added a funding source column to sort different grants that have paid for our assets.
  • Asset Panda provides the depreciation calculation for you.
  • The software is easy to maneuver. It can be easily searched and sorted by type of asset/date or any category you create.
  • You can add and track non depreciable items as well. Reports can be ran for just depreciable assets when needed so this will not interfere with you depreciable asset listing.

Lansweeper

  • Inventory - LANSweeper scans the network for devices - anything with an SNMP trap or using AD or local credentials. We can get an in-depth look at devices.
  • Reporting - LANSweeper can generate just about any report you can imagine. We can check RAM in groups and determine where upgrades are needed. We can find local printers (which aren't allowed on our network) and address that issue with the user. We can check CPU type to help determine end of life without our network.
  • Printers - It's nice to have a quick look at printer statuses. Toner levels, out of paper, and service errors are all reported via LANSweeper.

Cons

Asset Panda

  • Time-out settings on the website should be increased.
  • Image structure on the way they organized photos could be improved.
  • Barcode scanner on a mobile device could be improved.
  • Photo editor could be improved.

Lansweeper

  • Can only scan what it sees. Doesn't show every item on the machine. Patches are also absent.
  • Software Recognition is OK with Microsoft. It is dire within our network of multiple products. Recognition is at about 35% with constant manual work needed to baseline for each manufacturer in each network
  • Datacenter compliance is a manual project. We used Excel extensively.
  • License optimization is limited to installations v surplus licenses. We need to know who's using what and how.

Very helpful support and fast responses - can answer any questions in a friendly manner and provide guidance and suggestions in trying to solve various configurations within Lansweeper. Another significant benefit is their Newsfeed keeps you update to data on big IT news, such as EOL announcements in the industry, and vulnerability alerts. On top of this, they regularly publish importable reports that you can pull into your Lansweeper installation to assist in searching for vulnerabilities and EOL products to take action against. Very positive experience!

Alternatives Considered

Asset Panda

Asset Panda is great for fixed assets or small businesses. I have also used inventory in a retail environment where product coming in and out need to be tracked. I wouldn't recommend it for an extremely high volume business.

Lansweeper

Samangage is great, it really is. But it just had too much that we did not use but were paying for. Lansweeper was something we were not aware of but once we ran the trial on it, we knew that Lansweeper is what we needed. Plus as I stated before, it saved us money all while giving us the information we wanted and more.

Lansweeper

  • It had a positive impact on solutions expense cause several teams we're using different solutions with different costs that used several servers and DB resources. Now, we've been able to simply that a lot with Lansweeper.
  • With my previous point, people had to train and learn about each of their solutions. Now we can put a team in charge and so the other teams can focus on other tasks.
  • Last year Lansweeper changed their licencing prices a lot so it slashed our budget.
