Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) July 23, 2008 -- Networks help to bring ease, effectiveness and speed to business. But they can also become hindering components if they are not managed properly. They require timely and competent support and management. One of basic fields in network management is network inventory and network audit.
Administrators and company leaders should know their assets well to manage them effectively. But there must be a simple solution for asset tracking and management because doing this manually can become a nightmare for administrators and would require much time and resources, both labor and financial! Such automation of this process is a great time and efforts saver. It helps to streamline workflow, drive down costs of hardware and software upgrades and save personnel time.
Being committed to the highest standards of software excellence Softinventive Lab company has found the solution, which is Total Network Inventory. It is a PC audit and Network inventory software for office and large scale enterprise networks. Total Network Inventory carries out scanning operations to gather complete information about OS, service packs, hotfixes, hardware, software, running processes, etc. on remote machines. This information is stored in the centralized database and network administrators are able to build reports about each or all PCs on a network. Reports are very convenient as they present comprehensible information about networked machines in an easy manner to read and understand.
There are also special reports like "Software installations count" and "Software and licenses", which can help in licenses reconciliation. Since now reports in two formats can be built (A4 and Letter). The program is agent-free and requires no software installed on remote machines, except WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) service, which is present by default on Windows 2000, XP and Vista, Server 2000, 2003 and 2008.
