  • It has improved productivity in terms of ticketing tracking, and has cut down on repetitive tasks.
  • It has great reporting features that help us modify our processes to make us more efficient.
  • A cost is associated with each module, which drives up cost.

  • KACE has saved us from having to spend several days of employee hours in crafting DVDs and duplicating them (100+ DVDs)
  • KACE has saved us on the postage required to send out those DVDs for every update (monthly) to all of our customers electronically

  • KACE has solved our patch management woes. As everyone knows, consistent and effective patching is crucial in today's security environment. WSUS was no longer getting the job done for us. We save time, money and hassle with KACE. Plus, our systems are much more current and protected today as a result of our implementation of KACE.
  • We have a much stronger overall handle on our IT assets as a result of implementing KACE. The inventory features are very strong.
  • We've been able to consolidate to a single system instead of multiple point solutions. This has reduced our IT operations cost.

  • The time savings on Windows patching through the KACE SMA alone has helped us in saving hundreds of technician hours.
  • Ticket tracking through the KACE SMA has reduced the amount of calls to our helpdesk asking about the status of a ticket.
  • The tracking of licensed software through the KACE SMA has kept us in compliance and saved time from having to run around and look to see where the software is installed.

  • We are purchasing one product, but the product does many things so it allows us to get more bang for our buck in that case.
  • Because we do not have the manpower to have a person dedicated to this system full time, we cannot devote as much time as needed to fully immerse in the software and use all the features.

  • It allows district wide management of resources including change management, patching, monitoring updating etc.
  • It has allowed our organization to collectively manage most all of our assets and consolidate process.
  • It has provided a solid, though clunky, ticketing system.
