Spiceworks Valuable Features

I have found a couple of features to be valuable. One, it shows the users that are currently logged in, which is not something that Active Directory by default will ever let you know upfront. It's something you have to craft a script for and it's kind of a pain to have to do it every time. If I just want to quickly look and see who's logged on to their machine Spiceworks will tell me that. That's a very accurate and easy way to find software inventory of every machine that's out there. I do have a Microsoft Configuration Manager Server here and that will work okay. But Spiceworks definitely gives a much broader overview. The SCCN machine on the South Room Inventory and Compliance might tell me some of the other software that's on. For example, I've already caught several world-class operators here in our work environment putting the software on their machines that should not have and it was documented and they were disciplined because of it. I would say policy enforcement is definitely one of the bigger features overall that this solution gives. View full review »

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. This is a nice thing to have. I think it's getting better at discovering network equipment. View full review »
