Pros
- Excellent support from team. - Development team responds to requests for feature and functionality updates (e.g., two minor releases within last six months) - Able to extract data from most inventory solutions. - Able to easily pull data into Excel or Access to run additional queries. - Intelligence and rules behind Reconciling a Microsoft ELP or Adobe LS. - Audit Run Comparison shows history of audit runs (significant as we run regular data extractions for clients).
Cons
- Unable to drill down by device on data uploaded manually (e.g., VMWare reports). - Reconciling a Microsoft ELP is a rigorous process.
Additional Comments
Overall, I'm highly satisfied with my decision to use License Manager in my SAM Audit Practice.

Licence Dashboard Professional

  • Overall Rating 4.5 stars

Pros
Licence Dashboard has 3 versions available. Licence Dashboard Pro is very quick to install with a professional maintenance service. Upgrades have been painless and carried out by dashboard consultants with a wealth experience. Integration with SCCM 2007 (your tool may vary here) is as simple as a data extract from the SCCM site server into the dashboard database. Dictionary and suite updates direct from Licence Dashboard Ltd makes ongoing audit and discovery a lot less painful. This in turn makes identification of your installed software base a less intensive manual process. Email and telephone based maintenance support is good with knowledgeable staff and quick fixes to reported operating issues. Built in reporting is good but lacks customisation options. Overall a very good product for those committed to Software Asset Management, try it and see for yourself. Just scope your business unit use carefully prior to selecting the version you require.
Cons
Some small areas around how licences are assigned, you have to commit to software use before you see where the licences have been applied against devices and with only 10 Business units in the professional edition you may be limited and need business unit upgrades which can add to the overall cost User and Software identification Support Services are tied together and maintenance support is also a separate contract. This can lead to some confusion. Reporting lacks any customisation options for the built in reports.
Additional Comments
Overall I am very happy with the product for what it brings to the SAM process. I have to note that none of my dislikes around dashboard are show stopping and I would purchasing the product again. Staff and services are friendly, approachable and professional. The software does what it says on the packet. What more can you ask.
