Network inventory and asset tracking can be a real pain no matter what the size of your network. I have trialled all the big players from the complete packages like Spiceworks to the simple lightweight scanners like The Dude.
Whilst many of these applications have their strong points like speed, simplicity, price, I found that I could never get good quality, comprehensive all-encompassing data. Lansweeper takes the cake for me in terms of time required time to get running, hardware resources and effectiveness of the scans.
Lansweeper’s custom reporting tools have proved very useful for tasks like Microsoft software license auditing and assisting with hardware based audits and network inventory reports.
Please feel free to contact TEKNODE if you would assistance with hardware or software auditing, asset inventory or license compliance.
