What Is PDQ Inventory?

PDQ Inventory is a systems management tool that scans Windows computers to collect hardware, software, and Windows configuration data. Create customized collections to identify machines that need software updates — all remotely.

Great Product but....

5.0 last year

Comments: Overall I love the functionality. I wouldn’t change a whole lot other than having access to systems outside of our network

Pros:

We love being able to set custom scans for things like registry values. I can quickly pull reports or scan systems for up-to-date information when I need it.

Cons:

We really need to scan systems that are outside of our network. We deploy about 80% of systems as laptops. During the last year most have been off the network or on a VPN connection for a varied amount of time. Without a client, PDQ has really struggled to meet our needs. I have expressed our struggles to your support team but I did not receive any reassurance that a client is in the works. We will continue to look for a replacement to PDQ until there is a client. I’m hopeful to find something suitable soon if PDQ can not meet the challenges of many machines outside of the network.

Great Inventory program for Windows

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: Great it works great and does what I need.

Pros:

Super easy to use, works wonderfully with PDQ Deploy.

Cons:

Windows only, if there was a cross platform component it would be perfect.

Some features and .NET dependecy

3.0 last year

Comments: We use A lot, but we thing that a several GAPs to top tools, like Flexera and Snow.

Pros:

I thing PDQ Inventory is the easyest inventory tool ever.

Cons:

We dont go to lastest version available because the new versions have dependency of higher .NET, and upgrade that just to follow PDQ is not that simple.

An efficient solution for monitoring asset status and reporting.

5.0 3 months ago

Pros:

- mostly easy to use - lots of templates to use and edit - provides a wide range of information and details about a specific device - grouping devices into collections according to different combinations of parameters

Cons:

sometimes it is not easy to debug some more complex reports, but this is not directly a defect of the application itself

PDQ Inventory and Deploy ROCKS!

5.0 last year

Comments: I've been using PDQ for about 5-6 years. For us, it's a life saver because until recently I have been the only IT on site. I just hired a admin and he's loving this software as well. Their support is top notch!! When I am stuck, I get a quick answer.

Pros:

I highly like all the details collected for each servers and workstations and the ability to created dynamic collections that can integrate with Deploy.

Cons:

Not that much. The only thing I can think of, ......ugh. Can't think of a thing right now :)
