What do you like best?

Ease of Install and mostly hand-off once installed. I do like how you can adjust the timing of the scanning by location so some of our smaller locations that don't have many changes can be scanned less frequently while scanning more at our busier locations. Dashboard customization is good. The ability to create dynamic asset groups is a great function as well. DO like the ability to get toner levels from printers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

GUI could be a little cleaner, seems to be a lot of info crammed into one space. Reports are nice and there are plenty to use, but creating custom reports requires some SQL query knowledge. Which is fine you have some, but for someone with little or no SQL knowledge may be cumbersome. Having all the demo data in there was a bit confusing and it would let you remove it, however I found online that there is a button to remove all demo data and it did what i wanted, just wish it was a little more obvious. Like maybe when we applied a real license it tells you to do that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If looking for an all in one asset management package and not pay an astronomical price. This is the one to look at. I looked a few others and between the cost of them, the complexity of setting up the backend and the need to install agents on the assets, they all turn me off. I found this and after the initial setup of a just a few minutes, i was ready to go. Had a few assets to edit, but overall it picked up everything properly. For those looking at this, I would strongly recommend using the full trial period to get it all setup how you want it and make sure it works for your needs. Once you do so and like what you see, the transition from trial to full version is painless and simple. Nothing needs to be redone and it all continues just as you set it up in trial mode seamlessly. It was great to not have to do any work i did customizing over again. Overall this product was exactly what fit our needs at this particular time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Just having an up to date list of our assets is key, no more updating excel sheets. Even some of the switch port mapping functions for switches was a great thing to have. I know there is more robust tools out there for this, but it was nice having it in one place. We currently use another program for our helpdesk tickets, but looking at the function in Lansweeper, we could move to that, again to keep it all in one place. This is something we will try out and see if it works for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Information found by Lansweeper is of great value, using SNMP, WMI, SSH, etc.

Assets are clear to read and you easily find what you search for!

Their new Helpdesk version is great, a bunch of great features and way more to come in each update and new major versions to come. The interface is fantastic for both users and technicians.

You get a clear history of public/private messages sent to the customer/technicians (notes).

Price is great, it used to be cheaper when they started but I think it's worth it with all the features and stability of their product.

Their support team is just great, I havn't found such a quick and good support anywhere else. They listen to their customers and do answer them in a short time (mostly in 24-48 hours).

Multi-language for Helpdesk (translation work is well done!)

If you're looking for a great built-in Knowledge Base tool, Lansweeper has it.

Easy to use for both users and technicians, fully integrated into the Helpdesk portion of the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Creating a form (ticket type) isn't that easy sometimes depending on the way you would like to build it. You may have to find a different way to create it as you can't reuse a custom field twice or more in the same ticket type.

The system may act slow on a regular server.

No multi-language support for Lansweeper itself, the Helpdesk portion does have it.

Lack of auto-processing features for tasks to be completed by the technicians, for example one of their competitors (from a Quebec/Canadian company) has an ITSM which offers way more advanced features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just go for it. You won't regret it.

Try the demo if you're not convinced, you'll be sooner than you might think! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

:: Budgeting / Reporting ::

Lansweeper greatly improves the time to get a budget done when it comes to how many PCs must be replaced, how many servers or switches should be replaced, how many licenses needs to be upgraded next year. Lansweeper reports are pretty handy with pre-built and custom SQL reports.

:: Software Deployment ::

We often have to install a specific software here and there depending on the role of the employee and sometimes implementing a new solution in the enterprise, such as a security software for example, we can rely on Lansweeper for such deployments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The product is easy to install and manage. There are enough custom reports that can you started reporting on your respective assets. It is agent-less which removes the need to first install software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is no SIEM integration which would have been useful for our current environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lansweeper is more that your usual asset management solution. It is currently being used by the Desktop Support, Microsoft Support, Information Security as well as certain finance team members in the organization. Extremely useful tool. They trial should speak for itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

With LanSweeper, the network is continuously evaluated while specific information is supplied. It allows you to sort resources by using unique categories and classes. Also, almost any kind report you could think of can be produced by LandSweeper, which makes it very useful in many cases. Also, it's able to link with Dell, if you work with Dell devices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The reporting unit is too necessary, this will be beneficial when user is familiar with related databases, but when he's not, it will be hard to create reports later, as there is not a scheduled process to follow. Also, if you uninstall the resource from the process it is deleted from the list, which may be a real problem if you need to revert this Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

LanSweeper is simple to install and to do network scanning, multi-protocol functionality, multi-device compatibility and connections to computer. I would recommend it for business with less than 250 devices. However, LanSweeper may not be appropriate in those cases where significant customization is needed, such as collecting design fields or information of equipment that is not registered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

LanSweeper is being used in our company primarily for network stock of computers and equipment. We were looking for a tool to show data from multiple perspectives, because in several houses we have various IT teams supporting specific VLANs, and that's what we got with this tool. When anyone signs in a machine, we receive an alert from LanSweeper. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The fact you do not need a workstation agent, you just pass it credentials, means it's not intrusive. The level of detail it gives you exceeds what we've got from far more expensive tools. You get way more details than perhaps you'd expect from a tool without complex endpoint agents. The full breakdown of the software applications installed, drivers, all hardware information, and details about not only which switch the network cable is plugged into, but which port too. It's very clever how it gets all of this without complicated configuration. It was as easy as running an install and giving it credentials for our devices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's early days for us (only been using it a couple of weeks) but so far, I see nothing I dislike. We are likely to implement the full version very soon (still evaluating) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just get it installed ASAP. It doesn't appear to be a demanding application for resources, and it really is extremely easy to deploy and gives you so much information out of the box. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We have accurate and up to date information for all of our assets. This information was previously manually collected or summarised from other tools we have in use, but this fills gaps in the data and we can see full inventory in very impressive detail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Lansweeper's ability to scan your network and inventory pretty much any connected device is a life saver if you have inherited an unkempt CMDB and need to get it up to date fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The initial inventory is a time suck, but this isn't a problem with Lansweeper, it is just the consequence of a large network of devices needed to be scanned slowly to ensure you don't overload or DDoS your own network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We were able to get a better understanding of a regional network we inherited from previous staff, determine network configurations and our deployed assets, as well as who had them. This enabled us to facilitate a PC refresh and removed hours of guess work that Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love that LANSweeper is a combined helpdesk and asset management tool. It puts all of my information in one place. This makes it easy for my staff to monitor tickets and predict problems before they arise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The report builder is quite complicated. I am rarely able to build reports I need and am forced to use the canned reports. Some reports will show different data, depending on how it is looked at. Also, Lansweeper is not very good at tracking off network items. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to have an account that is a local admin on all machines you want to manage. I set scanning for Windows machines to Daily and all other devices (printers, switches, etc) to hourly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Delegation of tickets to helpdesk staff is seamless. If the IP scanning setup is done correctly, it is very easy to scan desktops, laptops, and other and whitelist network devices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't think this software does a great job of helping to answer user questions. There are a few features that seem absent from the software and when admins (like myself) tried to ask questions in the forum, we didn't receive answers that addressed our problems. Each update seemed to move or remove a key feature without any guide to where it was moved to/replaced with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's a great piece of free software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Delegation of helpdesk tickets by name is very helpful. I am able to see status updates of the completed tasks. I've also been able to locate laptops that have not been returned for some time and that allows me to perform due diligence and follow up with users to obtain unused network devices.

The auto-scanning is my favorite feature. Lansweeper offers a comprehensive look at all devices on your domain.

Ease of scanning - very easy to get set up and scanning your devices. Some it can't clear without manual intervention, but a great way to find things on your network, especially things you may not know about, and give you daily reports. Plus you can't beat the price Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat clunky at times - the speed of scanning could be better with larger implementations. Reports can be hard to write from scratch, as you have to do it in database language, not anything graphical. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think the licensing cost for the helpdesk is too much. I'd stick with something free, like spiceworks helpdesk unless you have a solid business case. For us, the software deployment isn't worth figuring out either - we use PDQ Deploy/Inventory. However the inventory features of lansweeper outstrip PDQ inventory in that it can inventory any network item, which is vastly superior. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Lansweeper has a very nice interface that correlates the data from different scanning methods.

The flexibility for scanning methods and credentials makes for a robust implementation.

The ability to add devices to location maps.

Reporting and tracking network changes.

Maintaining software compliance Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The ultimate version use to include unlimited assets and remote scanners. With the new licensing structure, you have to purchase blocks of assets and the remote scanners are no longer included. With the new pricing, you are paying to maintain assets that have been disposed of but still listed in inventory for a historical record. This limits the usefulness of Lansweeper as a complete asset inventory solution.

While Lansweeper has a nice tracking feature for software purchase orders, it is lacking when it comes to tracking purchase orders for assets. You can add custom fields for vendors and purchase order numbers but it is not adequate.

The help desk feature is very lacking. I wish you could completely remove the feature instead of disabling the menu. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

LANSweeper is a fairly easy to use web application that allows us to track various information related to all devices on our network.

We use it to validate various pieces like encryption compliance, software license audits, etc.

Provides a fairly easy to use interface for creating and running reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Performance is the main dislike. We have a very beefy server running this product, and having it load and run any type of report takes a little longer than ideal.

This product is also patched often for bug fixes and such - which is sometimes annoying to manage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Cracking down on unlicensed software for super users. Sometimes users will install freeware software unaware that there is an enterprise licensing component. Honest mistake on their behalf, but it allows us to track things that are non-standard and enforce immediate removal.

Also allows us to verify exactly how many seats of a license we are using when it comes to true-up time with our vendors.

One of our common uses it to validate if any devices are missing antivirus products, and see if the definitions are up to date or out of date.

We use it to track operating system types as well. When it comes to doing OS upgrades, this product comes in handy to find if any old devices are being re-added to our network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lansweeper is well worth the cost. I can't imagine how our organization would have kept track of all assets prior to the implementation when I arrived. This is a powerful piece of software that will close so many gaps in your day to day IT operations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
