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

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

  • Asset Discovery
Christopher Treece, CISSP profile photo
  • 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

  • Easier Navigation
Christopher Treece, CISSP profile photo
  • 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

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.

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.

Return on Investment

  • Accurate inventory of corporate workstations
Christopher Treece, CISSP profile photo
  • For inventory management, it works well
  • Software deployment would be a negative impact as we don't use it or have it set up
  • Software inventory is so so, as sometimes it does not update in a timely manner
