Lansweeper Software Inventory & License Audit solution icon facebook

Use Lansweeper to automatically do a license audit on your network for Windows, Linux and Mac devices , and get a complete software inventory of your IT environment.


Knowing which software is installed on your network and how many times a specific piece of software is installed can be a big challenge for any business. Software installations are changing constantly through new updates and versions. Controlling and managing the software installed in your environment is almost impossible without an automated solution. In addition to software inventory, a software license audit also needs to be performed and managed.


Scan your network with Lansweeper to automatically get a complete software inventory from all Windows, Linux and Mac assets or to perform a warranty audit. Report on software installation within your network by either using some of the built-in reports or by creating your own custom report. Using custom reports allows you to create a customized overview of the specific data you want to have. These reports can also be used in the dashboard, so you have all the relevant information on a single page.

Audit Software License Keys

Automatically scan your network for several hundred different types of license keys. Supported publishers include Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk. Control your license key scanning, select which license keys you would like to scan or add your registry locations with specific license keys you want to scan. Retrieve keys and product IDs from computers and find the results on their respective web pages or in the built-in product key reports. Additionally, you can create custom reports from scratch.

Audit Software License Purchases

The configuration console facilitates license compliance management of general software, SQL instances, and OS installations. You can submit single software packages for license compliance or group several together under one header. After indicating how many you own of each license item, Lansweeper will compare these data with scanned installation records to determine how many licenses are missing.

Lansweeper can help predict the financial impact of becoming fully compliant. With pricing information submitted for each license item, Lansweeper will calculate the cost of filling in any missing licenses for both individual license items and for the network as a whole.
Export the compliance status of your network through the report builder. The builder also enables you to retrieve even more detailed information. Want to list only those licenses of which a certain number are in use? Or calculate the percentage of licenses used for each license item? Achieve all of this easily through custom reports.
