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.

We run a large environment where managing agents and clients would be difficult, but this software doesn't require either. We use it a lot from our iPhones accessing the software from anywhere in the office and even from home.

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.

  • Network discovery--with no agents to manage is great and its very fast
  • Reporting--custom reports, charts and PDFs; the software also emails monthly reports automatically
  • Users only see the data and menus they need, so no training needed and the UI is focused
  • No clients to install; we can use it from any browser and from our cell phones
  • Upgrades are done quickly; we've never needed to get involved, as they do it for us

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.

  • Looking forward to using their full endpoint management system, which is under development

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.

ManageEngine AssetExplorer

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.
