N/A

There is a lot this system can do for an IT department. What you put in is what you get out of it. Its a blank slate for you to customize, store, and use.

Pros

Lansweeper encompasses almost all of the needs for a HelpDesk. Tickets can be input and viewed easily. Email notifications can be customized. The sorting and filters are intuitive and useful. Lansweeper keeps track of Assets and you can search using any of the fields available. There is an Asset Import that is very helpful when adding a lot of equipment all at once. Its also customizable for fields, both static and dynamic. It is also helpful with Remote Access and scanning the network. It can be as simple and basic or complex and all encompassing as you make it. Its scalable on all ends. There are also Knowledgebase sections that are helpful to users if used. It is excellent for small to large organizations.

Cons

One of my biggest pet peeves is the Report section. It is not very user friendly and rigid with its output. It can also be a little challenging at first when scanning the network and determining which things it will automatically discover and which things it needs input on first. But once learned, you'll know what it will and wont do for you.

Lansweeper is a very good product. It gathers information about network switches, Printers, PCs, and even the UPS power units on the network. It helps immensely when doing software audits and to also determine when a device was accessed last. It has a great deal of information available to the administrators and for our team we really couldn't do our business without it.

Pros

- identifies all devices on your network including PCs
- keeps track of the last time a PC or other devices were logged into by the last person to log in.
- keeps track of all software on a PC
- keeps track of the warranty of a PC
- integrates seamlessly with active directory
- allows for manual entry for some devices that do not have a network monitoring port such as a UPS power unit if you want to try to use Lansweeper for an inventory control software.

Cons

- once a device is removed off the network it does not automatically delete that device. This causes some problems and requires an administrator to keep track of all users they have deleted from Active Directory and then go back into Lansweeper to delete that user. Because of this Lansweeper is not truly an inventory software but you could use it in that manner with additional input for staff members.

I'm very happy with Lansweeper and we are going to implement the help desk software in the near future to replace our current ticketing system. It's a more robust system than other similar programs.

Pros

Lansweeper is by far the most vital bit of software that I employ for my day to day duties. I use it to track assets, keep tabs on warranties that might be expiring, track disk errors before hard drives fail, and even perform functions on devices. It's very handy for checking background items while the end users obliviously go about their days. There are also a wide variety of 3rd party add on's to increase functionality.

Cons

I am not a fan of the lansweeper reporting software. I'm able to use the built in reports but I'm not well versed on writing my own and I can't find any help to break it down into terms I can understand.

I like that I am able to extract asset information for each device, this is warranty, hardware information, IP details, past user logins. It is useful from a management perspective as we can report on devices on our network which have reached the end of their lifecycle in terms of age, operating system or warranty. Easily able to extract this bulk information.

Cons

Personally i would have like to integrate the asset information and data into our service desk ticketing system for our staff to have this information more freely. But this proved difficult.

All from this device I can keep track of assets, access the admin share of the PC, or remote into it all from within the tool.

Pros

Identifies all devices on you network. Lansweeper is pretty fast compared to some of the asset management software that I have used. You can access the admin share on individual PCs, and remote into them with RDP all from the tool.

Cons

The biggest pet peeve that I have with Lansweeper is that it only hold onto the record of the device for 30 days after it goes offline. This is a big problem when you have a massive amount of offline inventory.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your review!

By default, Lansweeper does not delete any previously scanned assets from your database or web console. We would recommend checking your Automatic Cleanup Options under Configuration/Server Options to prevent any offline inventory from being deleted.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact our support team via support@lansweeper.com. They would be happy to assist.

Have a great day!

Pros

Ease of scanning network and returning accurate stats. After the extremely easy setup process just input your IP ranges you'd like to scan and you can expect results in <30 minutes. We scanned 400 assets and it returned results extremely fast.

When cross-referencing the information provided from Lansweeper with the actual computer scanned it was 100% accurate.

Cons

The software can be a little intimidating for newcomers to use.
GUI could use some updating. Also the new help desk function is a little confusing to operate. Due to this software not being optimized for mobile devices we use Spiceworks for our help desk. Spiceworks allows us to handle tickets efficiently and manage tickets on the fly via our iOS or Android devices.

Up to date workstation inventory, including hardware and software.

Pros

I like the software inventory on each workstation. I like that it comes with a (fairly simple) help desk facility. It is very easy to install and let run in the background. Whenever I need it (to look for sofware licenses or check disk capacity, for example), it has the latest inventory of what is on my network.

Cons

I wish that it was easier to manage the workstations that have disappeared. It is hard and tedious to delete the ones I've renamed or retired. I also am not happy with the Mac support. I guess that goes for Linux. You need to provide the "superuser" privileges to connect to each machine (windows is AD controlled so there is a domain admin authority).

Form helpdesk to an automated inventory scan, Lansweeper has saved us so much time it's immeasurable. Everything is wonderfully integrated and very customizable. With it integrated to our AD it connects devices to users and created tickets seamlessly. Being able to quickly identify which device a user is having trouble with is fantastic.

There are so many features it's hard to fit all of them into a single review. Safe to say is that you can in theory do everything you'd like from a troubleshooting and management standpoint. Application deploy, integrated uVNC remote desktop, Quick inventory management are just a few features that are great to have access to.

If the included tools are not enough they have a great forum in which loads of people have submitted their own solutions to further extend the variety.

Me and my colleagues highly recommend Lansweeper.

Pros

The automated inventory scan. The built-in uVNC support.

Cons

There a few things I dislike about the product. Everything we like is there and if it isn't the forum most likely have a solution to it.

This is a great product to look out at your network to see what is there. It is NOT an asset tracker. If you deploy a new computer and use the same name as the previous system, Lansweeper will overwrite the information for that old system. A true asset tracker should still maintain that information for the old system as well as the new system.

Lansweeper never uses just the asset name as the internal asset ID. A Windows computer's ID is its computer name/domain name combination. If you decommission a computer and then deploy a new computer with the same name in the same domain, then yes, the details of the new computer will overwrite the details of the old one. However, this can easily be avoided by renaming the old computer in Lansweeper first and then deploying the new computer.

As a domain cannot simultaneously contain two machines with the same name, the name/domain combination seemed like the logical choice to uniquely identify Windows computers. We do need to compare some aspect of the machine being scanned with data present in the database. Using random IDs would cause new assets to be generated during every network scan.

A non-Windows asset's ID is its MAC, IP or a random string. You could have hundreds of non-Windows assets with the same name. They wouldn't overwrite each other.
