Smaller environments (under 1000)
Does not work well w with older systems, xp/2003
Kevin Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lansweeper

Lansweeper I believe is well suited for any environment - its low cost and small footprint make it an easy addition to any organization, big or small, that is looking for an asset inventory solution that can either replace or supplement existing asset management systems. It may not be well suited for situations where a lot of customization is necessary, such as pulling in custom fields or details from equipment that don't reside in a registry.

Pros

InvGate Assets

  • Easy deployment
  • Ability to add non pc assets
  • Web based application
Kevin Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lansweeper

  • 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

InvGate Assets

  • Reporting
  • Fine details of system (bios etc)
  • Remote support to end users
Kevin Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lansweeper

  • Can only scan what it sees. Doesn't show every item on the machine. Patches are also absent.
  • Software Recognition is OK with Microsoft. It is dire within our network of multiple products. Recognition is at about 35% with constant manual work needed to baseline for each manufacturer in each network
  • Datacenter compliance is a manual project. We used Excel extensively.
  • License optimization is limited to installations v surplus licenses. We need to know who's using what and how.

Lots of info online there are tons of SQL Reports you can copy from the web as Lansweeper and users post many of them. They also send out alerts that pop up on Lansweeper, letting you know of an update that you need for certain software and provide an SQL report so you can scan your system to see what PCs need this update.

Alternatives Considered

InvGate Assets

Spiceworks had more features and options but was not designed for a large environment. Also it did not integrate and did not have an API.
Kevin Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lansweeper

Though Lansweeper isn't designed as a live network management tool, it's intended as a static Networked Asset Inventory Manager. It does share many functions with other applications, and the reporting tool in Lansweeper is much easier to use and to customize (create your own SQL queries to extract information) as well.

Return on Investment

InvGate Assets

  • Single pane of glass
  • Inexpensive per endpoint
  • Able to track all harware
Kevin Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lansweeper

  • We actually saved a decent amount of money by switching to Lansweeper.
  • The way we have Lansweeper currently setup is on a local machine but if that machine goes offline, we have no access to it. Easy to remedy but just something to note.
