We have just added a great new feature to our product which now makes asset management and inventory management a lot easier. We now have something called 'Parago Agent' which can be run over a whole network (not to be confused with network scanners) or run individually from a USB key. Once run the program uploads all information about that PC/Laptop into our database (cpu,memory,software installed,etc..)
Once uploaded everything is represented in icon form and can have extra info attached (e.g. asset tag) and placed into rooms/departments to organise them better. And most importantly you can generate reports on how much software is installed on each pc, how many licenses you are currently using.
Anyway enough rambling, have a look on http://www.itvision.net/ and any feedback would be great.
The product has been in test over the last 6 months over 3 different LEA's and 10+ schools and we are continuing to try and get schools involved in the direction that the product is taking.
