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

Because of its slowdown as we have acquired more equipment, I think LANSweeper may be better suited for smaller environments. We have 3000+ users and over 1500 devices on our WAN. It has shown considerable performance issues as we have grown. Maybe moving it to a full blown SQL instance will make things a bit better. But as it stands, it has gotten tiresome waiting for it to update and refresh.

Pros

  • Cloud-Based - I can access it anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Mobile App - The mobile app makes life easier with barcode scanning, searching, and even update assets on the go. The best part of the mobile app is I can now capture signatures for assets that users own.
  • User-Friendly - Asset Panda is easy to use out of the box and can be customized for the most complex environments. We built into our site the ability to maintain our credit card machines and utilize and check-in/check-out tracking system and even built into it the ability to audit the devices for tamper checks to update the tamper check automatically.
  • Pictures & Documents - On any asset I can now upload quotes, internal requisitions, receipts, and pictures with each asset! This makes my inventory a one stop shop for all documentation for each asset.

  • 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.

  • There is not a clean way to remove assets from active inventory, but keep them in the database.
  • Deleting the asset from the system deletes it from the database.

The price to function scale is so far towards function it would be stupid to get rid of it

Alternatives Considered

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.

For the price Lansweeper easily moved to the top of our list. It is extremely easy to use and manage. The amount of detail it gathers on each asset automatically was amazing. Manually adding an asset is very simple as well. The fact that it will detect peripherals on machines as well as link them to the network switch and port makes life much easier for us.

  • Inventory can be searched using any field.

  • For the original pricing, Lansweeper can't be beat. Now that they are increasing their pricing by roughly 3 times ROI will decrease.
  • We lacked a true asset inventory system. This made it easy for us to get up to speed with everything on the network.
  • Has made chargeback easier as we use custom fields for various assets and run reports from the database each to make our calculations.
  • Simple to use, so getting staff in the system and working takes no time.
