Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice Reviews

“Great solution, even better service!”

 

“Certero have been a pleasure to work with. We really tested their solution and found it to be fast, intuitive and user-friendly. But more importantly, we tested Certero capabilities as a service provider. We challenged them to think outside the box and find solutions to suit particular requirements. Certero proved themselves to be big enough to deal with our demands, yet flexible enough to respond quickly to meet unique requirements.”

 

Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice

“Straightforward to use would recommend this as a SAM solution”

 

“Excellent vendor to work with, very responsive to our needs with a depth of understanding and an ability to explain clearly. They have also taken on board suggestions from us that have improved the product for us whilst sticking to their overall planned updates. The product is reliable, straightforward to use and very flexible. The latest iteration now integrates a number of other useful solutions under the same interface, password self service, power management and an MDM making the solution very comprehensive and with a single interface making this easy and straightforward to work with.”

 

Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice

“Powerful, yet easy to use and deploy asset management platform”

 

“Overall, I would describe Certero as ‘very easy: very easy initial setup and config, very easy to use, very easy to get assistance from the vendor on any aspect of the product’. Although we don’t use Certero for deployment, for that we have MS SCCM, but I’m sure that would be easy also. We use it for asset management, as an aid to procurement and SAM – all things Certero does with ease.”

 

Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice

“A true SAM partner – powerful solution, easy to implement and with long-term customized value”

Implementation of the product was seamless and took a few days to implement the initial phase of the solution with effectiveness. We were able to realize value from the product quickly, while also having significant further opportunity for maturity and growth.”
