"Everything is easily centralized and managed under this one product.""The centralized control of all of our Windows hardware that this solution offers has been most valuable to our organization.""What I like best about this product is that I can log on to every PC, very easily, and chat with the user via the chat feature.""The solution is time-saving and resource-saving.""The ability to run event viewer, task manager, services, command, file browser, certificate all remotely without interrupting users is the most valuable aspect. Software deployment and prohibiting, allowing us to standardize on the software that has been deployed through the environment and then prohibiting illegal software such as torrent applications has been valuable.""The initial setup is easy.""The stability is very good.""ManageEngine Desktop Central has greatly improved our organization by utilizing Service Desk Plus to monitor and keep track of issues that our end users report to our Help Desk Department. We also have written in the ode of our company's software to notify Support if an end-user experience an issue and does not report it."

Cons
"Requires integrating with ABM before enabling some of the features.""Citrix needs to improve the architecture. They also need to strengthen the application integration. They keep referring to some things to be required as security, and they keep selling the next level and on-premise separately. They should give the customer the opportunity to decide whether they want to use the next level on-premise or on-cloud, but they should not charge additional fees if the customer wants to deploy the next level on-premise because the customer is already being charged as the end user. They should allow next level on-premise optimization without any additional charges."

"Not many things are needed for improvement, everything seems to be great as it is. One thing that would be good to have would be the ability to add MDM to a tablet running Android 5.0 using the EMM Token Enrollment. If we wanted to add MDM to an older tablet, we just have to go the "long route" to get it added.""I would like to have the option to install the agent remotely.""Computer imaging is powerful but breaks frequently. The reason for this breaking is not clear and requires heavy amounts of attention to keep operational. There is a lot of room for this tool to do more but the reliability of this process should be focused on first to ensure core competencies are being fixed before more features are added.""The performance sometimes lags a bit because the solution is demanding on system resources.""Some difficulties with setup for multiple locations.""There is a slight delay in customer support, which is something that can be improved.""I would like to see them come out with a SaaS version of the product in the future.""There are occasional glitches."
