How well do you know your network?
Keeping on top of an ever-expanding software and hardware inventory list can be a daunting and time-consuming task. As the demand for software and hardware in education grows, and the requirements of each department become increasingly complex, keeping track of what’s what can sometimes seem unmanageable. This is where the inventory management software features of Impero Education Pro can help.
In most cases Excel spreadsheets are the management tool of choice, though the static and manual nature of this method means they are often out of date. Larger establishments tend to decentralise the task, with individual departments responsible for their own inventory, further complicating the process.
The inventory management software feature stores a catalogue of hardware, software and operating system information relating to all machines installed with the Impero client. Inventory checks can be automated to save valuable time when auditing, while the centralised view highlights the age and state of equipment so it can be replaced, refreshed or removed no sooner, or later, than is necessary. This supports effective asset tracking and simplifies the maintenance of hardware.
IT teams can also generate customised reports on selected machines in order to review and compare machine specifications, with results displayed in an easy-to-view table, which can be exported as required. This alone accounts for significant cost savings.
