The purchase order module can be very useful if you put a process in place. It is miles ahead of using a spreadsheet or something simple to do purchase orders and track spending.It can be good to keep track of equipment and software you have in house. However it is imperative you have dedicated staff and processes in place to maximize the utility of the software else it can become a white elephant if not implemented properly as it is a complex piece of software that does many things.

It has reduced a lot of work for our engineers and architects by simplifying asset management for us. It is recommended at any scale if you're looking for a stable solution. However, if you're looking for something flawless with no budgetary restrictions then you can look elsewhere for more finished products.

Cons

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • You can fill the database and link it.
  • You can also add assets that aren't connected with the offline script, I would prefer to get a .exe but this import XML works well.
  • All is handled via the web, I would prefer a GUI standalone client.

  • IPAM has seen a few bumps in the past few months but not a big issue
  • Implementation at first has a learning curve but still easy compared to other solutions out there

It is not a perfect solution. I don't believe it is the best software for some of the components it offers but I do like and appreciate what it does offer. It offers complexity and a range of features for a company to take advantage of if planned and implemented properly.

Altiris is very daunting for users that have never worked with it. AssetExplorer was much easier to use for our team that had no experience with asset management.

Return on Investment

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • Allow us to stay in compliance with licensing requirements. We usually have just the right amount of licenses +2 or 3. We don't have to guess on where we are.
  • Allows us identify older assets and proactively replace them. Reduces downtime.
  • No negative impacts I can think of.

  • The product could have a faster install in terms of resources and time
