The software inventory information includes a list of programs installed on a machine. For each software you can get software version number, installation date, installation path, etc.

The reported information

Find Potential Problems

The collected inventory information allows you to find potential problems early. For example, you can you can find machines where disk is full or machines running out of memory. The program reports system information, so you can check the list of running processes, etc.

You can update inventory information on the regular basis to work with the actual data and discover potential problems. The program is able to update inventory info automatically.

How to detect problems

Generate Inventory Reports

Do you need an inventory report? It isn't a problem, because the program allows you to generate a report using the collected inventory information. You can use built-in reports or create a custom report.

How Remote Audit Works

Follow a few steps to collect inventory information from network machines remotely and to generate various inventory reports.

Check Network Configuration

The program uses Microsoft network features to collect inventory information from remote machines. Make sure that they are enabled on all machines. Administrative permissions on remote machines are required to collect inventory info, so you need to run the program as a domain admin or specify admin credentials.

Enumerate Remote Machines

Specify remote machines to be audited by the program. The program allows you to enumerate entire network and audit all discovered machines, or you can scan specific machines only. Select a domains and workgroups to be scanned or specify a target IP range. It takes a few seconds to collect inventory info from each machine.

Review Inventory Data

When network enumeration is finished you can review the collected inventory information. For each audited machine you can review its hardware, software and system information. The program also represents inventory information by asset type, for example, by a CPU, so you can check all CPUs on a single screen and see where each model is installed.

Generate Reports

Generate inventory reports using built-in report templates. If you need, you can specify custom branding, so reports will be generated with your company name and logo. You can also create custom reports using a visual report generation editor. There you can select inventory data to be included into a report, output format and other options.
