Likelihood to Recommend

Faronics Core

If you have just a couple of computers using DeepFreeze this isn't necessary. When you start using 100s of computers and multiple packages (like Deep Freeze, Data Igloo, and Insight) a tool is needed like Core for manageability.

ManageEngine Desktop Central

Simple to use for managing endpoints (mass deployments, imaging, remote control) [and] simple to learn for new users. Simple to implement.Not very good at reporting Software Inventory and not suitable for controlling non-office assets (Additional add-on needed).

ManageEngine Desktop Central

  • Sometimes it will report that systems are missing patches when they are really not.
  • I wish it was able to pull warranty details for computers directly instead of having to enter manually.

The other tools we use do not have an inventory management tool. Also not many tools we use intergrate well with this product.

We selected ManageEngine Desktop Central because it is easy to implement, and their support is very good. It has very good functionality, rolled into one, in how well it handles these features. Also, there is nothing that compares to the cost-effective nature of this product. We recommend ManageEngine Desktop Central. It's one of the best solution from the market.

Return on Investment

Faronics Core

  • It has sped up deployment significantly.
  • It makes it easier to work on a computer in the field.
Mark Fitzgerald | TrustRadius Reviewer

ManageEngine Desktop Central

  • The impact has been positive. Being able to manage entire sets of assets, rather than addressing them one at a time, has been huge. The ability to deploy an application without disturbing an end-user is great as well.
  • No negative impact on ROI.
