Useful, rough and improving

3.0 4 years ago

Comments: We use it for DCIM and network discovery. Does a good job at both and the value for money is there. Support has been very helpful, development seems overworked - don’t except a quick resolution to the issues that are present. Would definitely recommend the product. As a side note, they are offering cash payouts for five star reviews, so I’d encourage taking any reviews with a grain of salt.

Pros:

The feature set is decently well thought out and it does what it says on the tin. We rolled it out to cover 1200 devices (60 or so models) inside if two months, which is a very good clip - most stuff worked out of the box and we managed to work around annoying (but minor) issues to get workflow integration going.

Cons:

The UI is the weakest point, both in terms of usage and documentation - a good portion of it is undocumented or under documented. The password vault offering may be useful in some scenarios but is insecure by design, would not store anything actually sensitive in it. If you use bonding/port channels, expect that most of the network visualisation breaks down.

Easy to Use

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Been a great product and overall experience.

Pros:

Setting up the server and the scans, and it handles itself. Being able to track users, the machines they use and software they have installed has been very helpful.

Cons:

At times it doesn’t know how to categorize some laptops. The software really struggles to know how to label a Surface Pro.

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Great experience and would recommend to anyone in need of asset tracking.

Pros:

Easy to use, if you need a feature just request it and they usually get right to it, and customer support very responsive!

Cons:

Had to build new VM for upgrade! This took some time, and a little help from CS, i had to go to a certain version, then upgrade to the new, a little confusing!
