Quest
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.

It is well suited to a tiny business that is trying to carefully be aware of when cash flow is going out or small business to be able to check the subscriptions they have all at once to see if they can combine/cancel/negotiate any of them to free up cashflow. It's also very suited to home use for this reason. It's less suited to a bigger business where the decisions are made across the company/lots of users.

TrackMySubs
  • Gives customizable reminders by email at the times that suit you - And can be more than one.
  • Can track how much you save on certain subscriptions (i.e. the ones you have a discount on etc).
  • Can track lifetime deals to find the services you use easily.
  • Use the Go and Explore features to access the websites easily (or find new helpful subscriptions!).

Cons
Quest
  • 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  • KACE community site (itninja.com), has outdated documentation, and answers to questions are usually vague at best.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.

  • Can be slightly complex to set up if you don't know all the details you need/which option to use.
  • Somewhat unintuitive GUI.
  • Be able to add more details immediately when you set up the new addition, rather than needing to wait until it's added.

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!

Return on Investment
Quest
  • 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.

  • It's meant I don't have fee's for not having enough money in the acct.
  • I've been able to cancel subscriptions that I don't use.
  • I can track lifetime deals so that I can make use of the ones that I have rather than purchasing something else.
