Easy rollout for a wonderful tool Infrastructure systems engineer in the retail industry: "From the start of the tender process, ManageEngine was always engaged and very easy to contact. The installation went as smooth as you could imagine. When using the GUI, there is a live chat feature, which means if you have any questions about certain areas of the product, they can advise you there and then."

Finally, device management made easy! This is a must buy product! Senior systems administrator working in government: "This product has worked extremely well right out of the box! From the minute it was installed, we were very impressed with its ease of use and very minimal setup on the back end.   Desktop Central comes with a huge amount of prebuilt reports you can run, no setup needed.   Patching Windows servers or end-user computers is very easy and has a host of options, including frequency, targeted devices, and deployment windows.   Another thing this product does that some competitors don't is third-party patches. Software deployment is made much easier with several already built templates for commonly used software.   Support is very knowledgeable and helpful!"

A fantastic tool for managing your IT services Service desk project engineer in the retail industry: "We have previously used ManageEngine's other products   . So we knew what to expect from Desktop Central. The whole process has gone swimmingly, and we are very impressed with the testing and the way the implementation has gone.   ManageEngine came to site to talk us through the product and has provided both telephone and remote support for any questions and queries we've had. They also provide weekly training webinars which come in very handy."

Perfect workstation management tool for very reasonable costs Head of IT service delivery department in the finance industry: "Great product with very reasonable costs. We implemented the product five years ago, and we are still happy with it every day. It helps to reduce workload on our administrators a lot."
