"Easy Management"

What do you like best?

The IP Scanner from Spiceworks helps to make network management easy. It scans your network and gives you a list of devices. The tool also has the ability to enable additional protocols so that you can even remotely management some devices in some cases.

What do you dislike?

The initial setup is rather cumbersome. After the product has been set up though, it works great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Network management is extremely easy with the IP Scanner. The Spiceworks tool is a lot better than having to track everything manually.

"Easy Device Scanning"

What do you like best?

It's an incredibly simple cloud based software with a thin client to install on a PC or multiple PC's.

What do you dislike?

The client does not obtain a lot of information from non-pc devices.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have installed the client on all of our windows based fleet of laptops. It gives us up to date information on installed applications, hard disk space and more.

What Help Desk solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Another Great Free Tool From Spiceworks"

What do you like best?

Like all other tools in the Spiceworks suite, this tool is dead simple to use. It's straight forward and does what it says on the tin.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't always pick up everything, and I've also had random issues where it won't pick up host names or resolve DNS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's always a giant pain to come into a new organization and try to figure out what's on the network and where it lives. This tool helps you track things down and put a face to a name.

Love the scan tool - just don't care for how much it uses local resources and bandwidth when running. It is a memory hog

I like that it's free, but other than that I disliked the product. I came bundled with the spiceworks helpdesk and frankly we never found any good in it, quite the opposite in fact.

The ressource hog. We ended up turning the feature off because of it. I would not re-use it at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have not solved nor benefited from this in any way shape or form.
