Asset Manager

Quickly Identify, Manage and Track All Software and Hardware Assets

Asset Manager is a complete, fast and cost-effective solution for effectively managing software and hardware assets. Through a single console, it allows you to discover and track hardware and software asset inventory. Plus, you can automatically generate usage reports to correlate what you have actual software purchases and entitlements. Asset Manager also goes beyond simply scanning and identifying software. It tracks usage through metering and quickly identifies if software is being underutilized, sitting idle or if the appropriate number of licenses have not been purchased.
