"Fast and reliable PC network inventory"

Overview

Network Inventory Advisor is a package to help administrators or accountants keep track of computer hardware and software. The software is available both for the Windows and Mac environment but can keep track of both PC and Mac hardware without a problem.

The software can be used to audit the network and keep track of what software is being used. Every version of Microsoft Office can be tracked using the installed version, license number, and more. This can provide an overview of all the software that the company has purchased, the state of the licenses currently and which ones may be out of date and need replacing sooner rather than later. The license tracking works with many well known software makers including Microsoft, Adobe, Corel, Symantec, and many others.

Reports can be generated regularly to track all the hardware and software deployed within the organization so that managers can take an overview of the current technology situation within the company. A view can be taken whether hardware is being updated too frequent or not frequently enough. If the company is falling behind on Windows OS releases, Office releases or other key software to support their hardware then the studious review of the reports can help to clarify the hardware and software technology position within the business.
