  • Changes between scans: list of freshly installed and uninstalled applications. 
  • Custom scan results, useful for detecting specific applications: existence of a particular file, registry entry or service. 

Hardware Inventory

How often are we unable to make right decision simply because we lack information? When using  Network Inventory, you will have up-to-date hardware inventory information to take effective decisions. You will be able to plan upgrades more accurately and to minimize upgrade costs by identifying how the replaced devices could be reused. Many hours can be spared in case of problems with particular hardware since you will know exactly what PCs require your attention. The following reported data and features help you to keep hardware assets under control:

  • Basic information: processor, motherboard, graphic card, hard drive, CD/DVD drive and network card. 
  • Extended information (if available): manufacturer, model name, serial number and manufacturing date. 
  • Settings and parameters depending on the hardware type: number of memory banks, maximum and installed memory capacity, total and free space on the hard drive, MAC address, graphics resolution, etc. 
  • Aggregated hardware inventory summary for entire network: total quantities of each hardware type, list of PCs where it is used. 
  • Query reports with custom conditions: for example, PCs with 1 GB of memory, PCs lacking free space on the hard drive, etc.
