Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Rapid7 NeXpose in another shop.

How was the initial setup?

The product was already installed when I got there, I just added more scanning jobs and used the reports for remediation, etc.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated and selected Rapid7 NeXpose in a previous job (over QualysGuard) because the compliance department there vetoed using “an external service”. Also, we wanted to get Metasploit later.
