"Snow License Manager is revolution in software and hardware asset management"

Comments: It is my main source of data for my software asset management program at a company of 18,000 employees.

Pros: I like the ease with which software and hardware can be searched and viewed at a glance. Also, the reporting module is very powerful. Reports for everyone from the PC Tech team all the way to C-level are pre-configured and ready to be exported.
In addition to that it can act as a contract management repository and an IT finance management (ITFM) tool , with a T.C.O. of every asset in your organization.

Cons: Almost an overwhelming amount of data is gathered. There are so many screens and modules that it takes a while to learn and master. Also, implementation and entitlement gathering is time consuming.

"Manage and track license usage with ease!"

Pros: A well-developed software recognition database that shows and allows to manage products, not just a single components. The user interface is clear and intuitive.
The program itself is easy to maintain and constantly developed with an active community.

Cons: The asset management part could be more developed.

"Snow License Manager is good tool for software management"

Comments: This is a good tool.

Pros: I really like the dashboard feature, you can customize it.

Cons: You can customize the dashboard, but incompliance is showed based on number of applications not installations.

"Good tool for Software Asset Management"

Comments: The customer support - they don't reply or ask several times the same questions even though the answer is already included in the request. Except that it's worth checking.

Pros: Helps to organize the licenses within the company.

Cons: With on-premise solution you need to wait for Daily Update Job (DUJ) (somethimes more than 24hrs) in order to see the data in Snow License Manager (SLM).

"Tried to work with Snow Support for years - not helpful."

Pros: The product does what it is suppose to do. It looks great and is a powerful tool for us. The cost was good when using a re-seller with purchase power.

Cons: Support is the worst. The smallest questions take days, sometimes weeks to get anything back. Initial install was flawed and took several months for SNOW to acknowledge the setup was incorrect. We hosted our environment with another company and had no access to admin tools. This caused us to rely on SNOW for answers which took an enormous amount of time to solve. Our last issue took more then 2 weeks for even after follow up emails. On the final followup email for status weeks later, we stated that we are looking at other vendors and to cancel our ticket. Within 1 hour, they closed the ticket with the comment "Customer is going to another vendor". Weeks with no response, but an hour to close the ticket. Hosted service has limited admin tools.
