Pros
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.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 most valuable features are the inventory and personalization.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 solution is very stable. It's reliable and efficient.

Cons
There are a lot of disadvantages to Spiceworks because it's not an agent-based solution.The network mapping could be improved. Putting together an actual bonafide network map would be really nice.Having an integrated asset management tool, where I can plug in things that are offline, would be good.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.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.

Price is a little high.The documentation could be improved.For us, the initial setup was complexThe only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.The server monitoring could be better.The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.
