    Pros
    Integration with ServiceDesk Plus is great, if it's working. The integrated templates of software to deploy are very great and easy to use.
    Cant love it more support is amazing...product is amazing does everything you can think of.
    I do appreciate the nice remote capabilities, the option to roll out your own image, MS Updates, asset management and great reports.
    Cons
    Companies took huge damage because of covid-19 pandemic. Most of country lost its economic balance.
    Errors installing software or agent are hard to troubleshoot without having to start over with deployment.
    The error messaging, most of the times to general.

    This is a platform that has a set of features that ensure optimal and secure terminal management.

    Pros

    Easy patch management and effective protection against threats. Facilitates collaborative work with desktop sharing for remote workers. I really like the features it offers to manage the updates we perform for our operating systems. The reports are very rich and easy to use.

    A great UEM for K12 schools!

    Reviewed 24 days ago

    This software has allowed us to completely replace our existing MDM solution with ease.

    Pros

    We were looking to replace our existing MDM with a newer product that offered more up to date features. Our biggest need was to be able to deploy software packages to 10 remote locations that were not part of the same network. We wanted to conserve bandwidth for our partner schools so the use of a remote deployment server was a critical component for us, that many other solutions could not provide.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are items in the interface that are not as intuitive as they could be.

    Tries to do too many things

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    This product advertises a lot of features and functionalities that try to make the solution a one-stop shop for IT departments. Unfortunately none of the features work well or work at all. When compared with other patching solutions, software deployment solutions and help desk toolsets, it falls flat on its face and does not meet the demands of an enterprise sized organization. Support staff is foreign based and can be very difficult working against the language barriers or trying to explain the problem even though they appear to be trying to help.

    Pros

    Useful dashboard for inventory of hardware and software.

    Cons

    Patching is extremely complicated compared to competitors. Agents deployed to endpoints consume large amount of CPU and RAM. Customer support is a small team with most tickets taking 3 days minimum. Every case starts with uploading logs. Product patches are being released constantly to fix the large number of bugs in software. Bandwidth management for remote offices does not function well and will easily consume an entire circuit. If this happens it is difficult to stop the traffic until the action has completed. Small mistakes can have big consequences when configuring deployments.

    Vendor response

    Hello, Greetings from ManageEngine! We're glad you like our intuitive dashboard for hardware and software inventory. We're sorry about your unpleasant experience with the product. Our patching today has transcended and become a lot more seamless with the introduction of automated patch deployment tasks, wherein every stage of the patch cycle is automated. We've grown as a team, and currently...
