Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The stability of the solution is very good. It's reliable. We don't have crashes or experience freezing. There aren't bugs or glitches.""I have found the location analytics feature that is built into the APs to be the most valuable. It allows you to compare data and to single out individuals who are repeatedly coming into your store. We can observe different trends. This is what separates it from a lot of the other solutions."

"If the product works, remote access will be a benefit. To this point we have not had reason to have confidence in achieving that access.""The most important thing for me is the autopilot feature.""The dashboards, the security, and the customization capabilities work very well for us.""We have not experienced any bugs or glitches with this solution.""This product offers an alternative solution to other UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) solutions.""Maturity makes it a stable product.""The most valuable feature is the UEM capabilities.""The most valuable feature for us is the security, including risk analysis and patch management."

Cons
"We've really only experimented with their iOS client. This is due to the fact that their Windows client has a lot to be desired. We first tried experimenting with the Windows one but very quickly determined that it wasn't going to cut it for most Windows cases. The Windows portion of this product needs improvement. I'd say that it's not really viable.""The cost of installing this solution can be more expensive depending on who is doing the installation. Cisco is very expensive, and I'd like to see a reduction in cost."

"The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough."

More Cisco Meraki Systems Manager (MDM+EMM) Pricing and Cost Advice »

"For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits.""The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it.""The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied.""The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper.""Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based.""We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor.""Pricing can be improved.""The price could be better."
