Unlike legacy enterprise-software solutions that can take months to deploy or point solutions that lack integration, Dell KACE appliances are fast to deploy and provide valuable information such as accurate hardware and software inventory almost immediately. More than half of KACE customers say their KACE appliance was fully deployed in less than two weeks, and over three quarters saw ROI in six months or less.* The KACE easy-to-use ROI calculator lets you see how quickly your KACE appliance will pay for itself.
Instead of purchasing, installing, learning and maintaining multiple point solutions or struggling with costly over-featured software suites, KACE provides a single, integrated approach that handles virtually all of your systems-management challenges.
"We were using about seven different products to perform the inventory, imaging and remote system management that we now perform with just the KACE K1000 and K2000."

The KACE appliance creates a substantial reduction in the amount of time you would normally spend on routine but essential tasks such as inventory, patching, software distribution and updates, which is especially critical for organizations with limited staff and IT budgets. The KACE appliance often enables you to automate tasks that would typically require another full-time administrator.
