Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the monitoring of processes.""This is a very good solution and it is simple to use, for any company.""The most valuable feature is the dashboard, where I can have a single screen that provides a summary for hundreds of servers.""The most valuable feature is its support for different types of devices, where it can use all of the equipment that you need.""An excellent solution that is easy and intuitive to implement.""The features I've found the most useful are the plug-ins, the fact that you can connect almost everything to it. That's very useful."

"The solution is very stable. It's reliable and efficient.""The solution can find all asset details automatically, whether it's a Mac address, computer name, IP address, models, etc. It's very helpful.""The most valuable features are the inventory and personalization.""It shows the users that are currently logged in, which is not something that Active Directory by default will ever let you know up front.""The nice thing about Spiceworks is always it's free. Monitoring of printers for low toner. Finding machines that have low memory or low hard disk space."

Cons
"The interface could be more user-friendly.""I would like to see support for notification via SMS.""I would like a much easier GUI so that I can delete events and logs, which will free up a lot of space.""I would like to see more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it.""They need more documentation for the plugins.""There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple."

"I would like the solution to allow for more direct interaction with computers. I can open tickets and I can see their status, but I can't interact directly with the computers themselves.""It would be nice to have remote access to the solution via a tablet. They also need remote control from a PC. Right now, to complete the technical support process, you have to have a tool to access the PC, and check the problems.""Having an integrated asset management tool, where I can plug in things that are offline, would be good.""The network mapping could be improved. Putting together an actual bonafide network map would be really nice.""There are a lot of disadvantages to Spiceworks because it's not an agent-based solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are using the free version of this solution.""This solution is very expensive, at approximately $5,000 USD when I purchased it, which is why I haven't upgraded my version in several years.""The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $3,000 USD per year.""The pricing is high with separate licensing for the product and support."
