What Is PDQ Inventory?

PDQ Inventory is a systems management tool that scans Windows computers to collect hardware, software, and Windows configuration data. With PDQ Inventory, users can create customized collections to identify machines that need software updates--all remotely.

We recommend using these collections along with PDQ Deploy to automate Windows patch management. Our products are designed to work together to automatically deploy updates to the computers that need them.

"Great Product but...."

Comments: Overall I love the functionality. I wouldn’t change a whole lot other than having access to systems outside of our network

Pros: We love being able to set custom scans for things like registry values. I can quickly pull reports or scan systems for up-to-date information when I need it.

Cons: We really need to scan systems that are outside of our network. We deploy about 80% of systems as laptops. During the last year most have been off the network or on a VPN connection for a varied amount of time. Without a client, PDQ has really struggled to meet our needs. I have expressed our struggles to your support team but I did not receive any reassurance that a client is in the works. We will continue to look for a replacement to PDQ until there is a client. I’m hopeful to find something suitable soon if PDQ can not meet the challenges of many machines outside of the network.

"Inventory management at it's best."

Comments: Having Inventory is wonderful. Being able to quickly gather data on new or existing PCs is crucial. The more recent addition of the Powershell scanner makes the product pretty much universal to do whatever you can think of for reporting.

Pros: The report writing is so much nicer than other options which typically require in-depth knowledge of SQL or other coding languages.

Cons: Adding a large amount of file and registry scanners when scanning 5000+ devices has caused some issues with the database growing too large leading to performance issues and/or memory leaks.
