What is our primary use case?
We are an integrator in key areas such as Transport and logistics, Warehouses, Production, Utilities. We have clients who use our solutions based on barcodes, barcode readers, barcode printers, co-bots, vision solutions and automations. We have implemented such solutions with Ivanti Avalanche for the management of the Windows CE devices.
One of our clients has Ivanti Speakeasy solution, which needs improvement. Through Avalanche, we can push packages to all devices that are in production.
How has it helped my organization?
It has been time-saving for the clients. It has helped in reducing the time for updates.
What is most valuable?
Installing the packages remotely and remote control are the most valuable features. There are around 100 pieces or devices, and the only way to send a package to a device is by connecting to the PC and then manually sending the package. By using Avalanche, we can send a package to all devices with one click.
It is very stable and easy to use. Their technical support is also very good. We have implemented this solution for our clients, and they are satisfied with this solution. It does what it is meant to do.
What needs improvement?
Its price could be improved. It could be cheaper.
I would like to see a better approach for Android and an easy way to send packages and manage devices.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
For Windows CE, we have only used this solution.

What about the implementation team?
We are an integrator. We have all the support from the technicians from Ivanti, and everything works great. We don't have any complaints.
For its deployment, you just need three people. It is usually me and two other people from the client's side.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
For such a solution and for its functionalities the price is correct.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
There are very few options for devices with Windows CE. We did evaluate some options for Android devices, which is a different platform. Avalanche is easier to use for controlling and managing devices.
What other advice do I have?
I would rate Ivanti Avalanche a nine out of ten.
