    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.

    1. Installbase management feature allows us to retire our old spreadsheet methods for tracking the data in favour of a singular database with some excellent reporting.2. We are also providing data connectivity from the WAN Providers and keeping all connections in Device42 gives us the ability have documentation of all connection that are made.3. Ever changing and growing inventory that needs to be carefully tracked and inventoried. We find this so simple to use that we spend much less time than we used to on tracking these items.

    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.

    • UI/UX is not up to the standards.
    • Can't mass update everything.
    • No export option for the sub components that have changed linked to the device they are assigned to
    • Plugins options are limited
    • Sometimes randomly times out my login forcing me to log in again.

    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.

    What I appreciate and love about Device42 is how everything links together from room layout,to server rack organisation,down to all VMs and Business applications. We are also able to get full value of our money and full visibility of our assets management process.

    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.
