KACE Asset Management Appliance

The KACE Management Appliance does many different things, but does not do them as well as other products. It is an all-in-one system for Asset tracking, software management, ticketing system, Contact management, and reporting. If you require basic functionality for these, then this product will meet your needs. But when you begin needing advanced/granular functions from the appliance, it will fall short.

I really don't find anything wrong with NinjaRMM. Getting a quote and working with sales was great. Getting the software loaded and working went just fine. Users don't complain and everything works. Support is great and customer service rep keeps tabs on me to be sure everything is going smoothly and answer any questions that come up and share new features.

NinjaRMM

  • Ninja does a nice job on providing robust monitoring of network servers. It provides peace of mind with monitoring of clients server infrastructure.

Cons

KACE Asset Management Appliance

  • Configuring automated software installs is difficult, and logs do not present useful information for troubleshooting.
  • Customer support will just refer you to search itninja.com when you call in for support issues.
  • KACE community site (itninja.com), has outdated documentation, and answers to questions are usually vague at best.
  • KACE Amp agent constantly breaks, and has to be re-installed on end user computers.
  • A parent-child relationship in the ticketing system requires you to create a process.
  • Remote provisioning fails consistently and does not provide any useful information as to why it failed.
  • K1000 is overpriced for the jobs it actually performs and the work that is required to maintain it.

  • Reporting system is a little underwhelming
  • Still waiting for that dark-mode to be implemented, it is on the roadmap
  • Splashtop only supports one connection to a system at a time

Ninja's interface is clean and simple. Overall usability from an interface perspective is good. Some items, policies and scripting for instance, are a bit cumbersome and it's really not clear how to implement with a best practice mind-site. Ninja RMM got the job done for us but as we pushed our needs more into automation and efficiency we felt it wasn't keeping up with our speed of growth. There is definitely usability in the product, and it will get the job done, but there are other RMM's out there that fit better in our business.

They respond within an hour always and the Dojo community is very busy. You can usually find your answer there first before creating a support ticket.

Alternatives Considered

KACE Asset Management Appliance

DAM blows away what Free wear we were previous trying to tweak and change for use to benefit the County. But as we looked into DAM we saw much more available with this product compared to what we had been trying to use over the last 10 years. It took a lot of convincing to get County Administration on board with County IT but after we had Dell come in and demo software and appliand to BOS and County Administrator they saw the added benefits of going with DAM!It has been a great addition to our County IT tools!

We felt that NinjaRMM gave us the best "bang for the buck" with the ability to remote control and included antivirus that was centrally managed and monitored on the cloud without needing any additional in house servers. NinjaRMM is very easy to use and the web interface is very fast and easy to get around.

Return on Investment

KACE Asset Management Appliance

  • Asset Tracking works exceptionally well, until the AMP agent breaks an endpoint machine. Quick re-install of the AMP agent usually resolves the issue.
  • The remote provisioning tool fails 90% of the time. If this worked properly or informed us why the remote provisioning failed, this tool could become an invaluable asset.
  • We canceled the support contact because the renewal price was expensive and cost just as much as the initial purchase price.

NinjaRMM

  • Ninja allows us to run without active directory which is a very positive impact on ROI
  • The lack of all the Apple tools we need is a negative impact on ROI as we have to invest time or other tools to accomplish tasks we could with Ninja
  • Ninja includes Teamviewer which is a powerful remote management tool by itself
