ManageEngine AssetExplorer

It is perfect for small to medium businesses looking for an inexpensive way to track and catalog all assets in their environment.

Lansweeper

Suited for the basic x86 environment of Windows machines and those looking for hardware discovery. I would say 150 to 200 device companies it is recommended. Unfortunately, for our environment, it lacks the detailed data, software recognition, coverage and functionality to be considered encompassing.

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

Alternatives Considered

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.

Lansweeper is great for what it does at its price point. However, it has nothing on LabTech. I have been spoiled by the feature rich LabTech and its automation greatness. If you are on a budget and need a robust product that will get the job done. I would recommend Lansweeper

Return on Investment

  • Accurate inventory of corporate workstations
Christopher Treece, CISSP profile photo
  • I would consider that ROI has been achieved - it wasn't expensive. However, Spiceworks could have done the same for free.
  • Too much manual intervention. Not strong beyond basic Microsoft products so we had to keep an eye on everything.
  • Great sniffer of hardware on the network including switches, routers, printers.
  • Lack of features that are essential for enterprise ITAM.
