    A great time-saver for our clients in warehousing and logistics
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most useful feature of Avalanche is remote control — especially the ability to remotely install packages to many devices all at once. When the client has, for example, 100 devices needing updates, it would take far too long to update each device individually. But with Avalanche, we just connect to all the devices through the PC and send the updates out with one click."
    • "Because our clients are all very satisfied with Ivanti from their side, there is little I can say about room for improvement. However, I think that to stay competitive with other solutions offering a similiar solution, Ivanti could look into making their products more affordable."

    What is our primary use case?

    Our company is an integrator for Avalanche and we have clients who are using barcode scanners, thermal printers, etc., in the context of warehousing and logistics. We implement Avalanche for these clients to manage their Windows CE devices. The implementations are installed on the client's premises, using the client's own servers.

    For example, we have one client who uses Ivanti's Speakeasy solution, and when the solution needs an upgrade we can use Avalanche to push updated packages to all the devices in production at one time.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Ivanti Avalanche has reduced the time needed to perform updates on all the devices across our clients' organizations. It's a great time-saver for the client.

    What is most valuable?

    The most useful feature of Avalanche is remote control — especially the ability to remotely install packages to many devices all at once. When the client has, for example, 100 devices needing updates, it would take far too long to update each device individually. But with Avalanche, we just connect to all the devices through the PC and send the updates out with one click.

    What needs improvement?

    Because our clients are all very satisfied with Ivanti from their side, there is little I can say about room for improvement. However, I think that to stay competitive with other solutions offering a similiar solution, Ivanti could look into making their products more affordable.

    Personally, I want to see Avalanche make more approaches available for Android devices, in terms of managing devices and sending packages remotely.

    Find out what your peers are saying about Ivanti, Microsoft, SOTI and others in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM). Updated: November 2022.
    656,474 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Ivanti Avalanche for about two years now.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Avalanche is really stable. It's very good in this respect.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The scalability of Avalanche is very good because it's not a solution that consumes a lot of resources from a machine. It can be scaled quite easily.

    How are customer service and support?

    Avalanche's technical support is very good. I receive all the help I need when I request it.

    How was the initial setup?

    The setup was straightforward. I got a lot of support from a technician at Ivanti and everything works great. I have nothing to complain about.

    What about the implementation team?

    As the integrator, it takes us about two or three days to get everything implemented. The initial installation and overall implementation are quite quick, not least because of the help I receive from Ivanti. It's a very pleasant process, in fact.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Other than the standard licensing fee, there aren't any additional or hidden costs, although I believe Avalanche could be made more affordable in general. 

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We have evaluated other options like SOTI, but for devices with Windows CE there aren't that many solutions available.

    When comparing Avalanche to similar solutions, but for Android devices, Avalanche is much easier to use. This is mainly because a remote management solution for Android has to take into account a number of different factors such as the widely differing platforms and versions of Android itself. So a solution for managing Android is quite different to one that manages Windows CE devices. Currently, it's a lot easier to manage Windows CE devices with Avalanche rather than managing Android devices with another solution.

    What other advice do I have?

    Avalanche is a stable, easy-to-use solution and we definitely plan to continue using it.

    I would rate Avalanche a nine out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    A stable and easy-to-use solution that reduces the time for updates and allows us to remotely install the packages
    Pros and Cons
    • "Installing the packages remotely and remote control are the most valuable features. There are around 100 pieces or devices, and the only way to send a package to a device is by connecting to the PC and then manually sending the package. By using Avalanche, we can send a package to all devices with one click. It is very stable and easy to use. Their technical support is also very good. We have implemented this solution for our clients, and they are satisfied with this solution. It does what it is meant to do."
    • "Its price could be improved. It could be cheaper. I would like to see a better approach for Android and an easy way to send packages and manage devices."

    What is our primary use case?

    We are an integrator in key areas such as Transport and logistics, Warehouses, Production, Utilities. We have clients who use our solutions based on barcodes, barcode readers, barcode printers, co-bots, vision solutions and automations. We have implemented such solutions with Ivanti Avalanche for the management of the Windows CE devices.

    One of our clients has Ivanti Speakeasy solution, which needs improvement. Through Avalanche, we can push packages to all devices that are in production.

    How has it helped my organization?

    It has been time-saving for the clients. It has helped in reducing the time for updates.

    What is most valuable?

    Installing the packages remotely and remote control are the most valuable features. There are around 100 pieces or devices, and the only way to send a package to a device is by connecting to the PC and then manually sending the package. By using Avalanche, we can send a package to all devices with one click.

    It is very stable and easy to use. Their technical support is also very good. We have implemented this solution for our clients, and they are satisfied with this solution. It does what it is meant to do. 

    What needs improvement?

    Its price could be improved. It could be cheaper. 

    I would like to see a better approach for Android and an easy way to send packages and manage devices.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for two years. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Its stability is good.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Its scalability is good. It doesn't consume a lot of resources of a machine, and it can be scaled. 

    We have two or three users of this solution, and they are the IT staff in the company. We plan to increase its usage.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Their technical support is very good.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    For Windows CE, we have only used this solution.

    How was the initial setup?

    What about the implementation team?

    We are an integrator. We have all the support from the technicians from Ivanti, and everything works great. We don't have any complaints.

    For its deployment, you just need three people. It is usually me and two other people from the client's side.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    For such a solution and for its functionalities the price is correct.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    There are very few options for devices with Windows CE. We did evaluate some options for Android devices, which is a different platform. Avalanche is easier to use for controlling and managing devices.
