Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The initial setup is easy.""Everything is easily centralized and managed under this one product.""The patch management aspect of the solution is the most valuable part for us.""What I like best about this product is that I can log on to every PC, very easily, and chat with the user via the chat feature.""It's a complete product that allows you to remote troubleshoot, has an inventory of systems.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""I like being able to image over the network. That's a nice feature that it has. Patch management is pretty decent on it as well.""ManageEngine Desktop Central has greatly improved our organization by utilizing Service Desk Plus to monitor and keep track of issues that our end users report to our Help Desk Department. We also have written in the ode of our company's software to notify Support if an end-user experience an issue and does not report it."

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to assign a package to a user on a system If you have your software packages set up via SCCM. It automates the process, which is very convenient, especially since most of our people are remote. Additionally, the overall functionality is good."

Cons
"ManageEngine Desktop Central should keep up with some of the features that other major vendors are providing, such as Microsoft.""I would like to see more click to complete actions such as - USB lockdown for Mac, the ability to check AV compliance on servers, bit locker controls, printer tracking or print page tracking, self-help for self-healing like "BMC my IT" and more options in the self-service menu other than just software - maybe add integration in ADSelfService at the self-service menu.""The performance sometimes lags a bit because the solution is demanding on system resources.""The solution should be better at integrating with other solutions.""There are occasional glitches.""The solution isn't fully stable, and, when it goes down, it's hard to get it up and running.""I would like to have the option to install the agent remotely.""I really feel like asset explorer should be a component of desktop central. That would make it the ultimate desktop management tool. This would also simplify the asset management role since an agent is already being deployed and assets could be added at the same time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I have been using the free version and am in the stage where I have to decide if I will proceed with the paid license, or instead choose another product.""The solution is very affordable.""Choose wisely between the Professional and Enterprise editions, based on your needs.""We had perpetual licenses. The cost was around 36,000, and then you'd have the yearly maintenance fee of 2,000 or 3,000.""We pay about $250 a year for our license.""The licensing is very easy to understand and pricing is right for what you get."
