What is Hardware Asset Management?
The Purpose of Hardware Asset Management?
As a System Administrator, it is key to know which hardware your network consists of. For many organizations hardware infrastructure management meant (and sometimes still means) manually building a database in Excel. A painstaking task, disliked by many and leaving a lot of room for error. One typo in a serial number or IP address, and your data was worthless. The devil is always in the details.
With Lansweeper, you can create a detailed and comprehensive oversight of all the hardware and devices that make up your network, including all the necessary data. The once dreaded job of hardware resource management gets fully automated, leaving no room for errors.
Discover, Manage, & Track Hardware Assets
Lansweeper is an agentless network discovery software that acts as a hardware inventory system and hardware asset management software. You can scan your entire network to collect information about computers and their components. All you need to do is configure Lansweeper to match your needs: scan your network by IP range, set critical servers to be scanned, or use active scanning and integrate active directory to continuously keep your inventory up to date - no software installs required.
Build an Accurate Hardware Inventory
Find and organize workstations, printers, routers and switches and track assets not yet deployed or disconnected from your network. Scan off-site computers outside your network with agent-based scanning. You'll retrieve manufacturer, model name and serial number as well as many other additional hardware specs such as processor, motherboard, graphic card, hard drive, etc. This way, computer hardware management gets fully automated.
Hardware Inventory Reports & Alerts
Managing your hardware devices was never so easy. With Lansweeper, you free yourself of the burdensome job of hardware resource management. Scanned hardware information can be represented on various built-in hardware inventory reports. If required, you can easily change existing or create your own customized reports. You can choose from over 500 ready-mades, out-of-the-box reports or builds custom reports within minutes. Lansweeper enables administrators to get notified through email if any new hardware is detected in the network.
