ManageEngine AssetExplorer

You definitely only want to buy this product if you have the need. I'd say that need starts at about 40 assets. Less than that and you may be wasting your time with a a product that is overkill. We use it for about 1000 assets and it is a lifesaver. I couldn't imagine managing the assets manually.

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

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • The asset discovery across the network is great.
  • The periodic scanning and updating of asset status is super valuable.
  • The software discovery is outstanding. Receiving list of installed software helps greatly with license compliance.

Cons

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

  • To my knowledge, there is not a mobile application.
  • The web interface could look a bit more polished, but this is really a minor area of improvement.

Lansweeper

  • Results are not instant, meaning they take time to scan
  • Purging is not accurate. I have seen machines show up that have been off the domain for weeks
  • The interface could be more intuitive

Lansweeper

The main competitor that are not isted on your TrustRadius is PDQInventory and PDQDeploy, and those two come as a package and they blow Lansweeper out of the water for both software deployment and hardware inventory. That being said, comparing it to the others I see listed: Spiceworks is just as good for inventory, and it is free. Landesk(Ivanti) is better, but ten times more expensive. SCCM works well, but takes an unbelievable amount of configuration. ManageEngine, I would rate it equal with Lansweeper. All in all, Lansweeper works for what we use it for, and I would like to see what it does when fully unleashed.

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.

Lansweeper

  • 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
