A new spin on managing your hardware assets


Man walking through an office


Most every kid did it: Spinning around in your parents’ desk chair. But as an IT Asset Manager, that swiveling is not so much fun.

Hardware assets are everywhere: from your physical locations to your remote users to all the mobile and wifi-enabled devices to your datacenters and your network infrastructure. And it’s likely that each of these asset groups has its own deployment and management system, if not multiple systems for each asset group.

So many questions…and it all takes…so…much…time.  

  • You have dashboards on each tool and system.  Which dashboard do you use?  Which is most accurate?

  • You have to go to a dozen tools and systems to pull data, and now you have to cross-reference and reconcile all of the data.  Did you get the reports with all the appropriate data from each system? 

  • You don’t want to double count an asset, so if an asset appears on two or more reports, which of the data records is correct?  How do you reconcile the multiple data points? 

You need visibility into what you have, where they are, and who is using which devices.  As quickly as possible. What if getting that visibility could be so much easier?

Ding, ding, ding! The answer is: You need your hardware asset data on one platform. One. 

One platform that can automatically and accurately combine data from multiple sources.

Where your hardware asset data is automatically reconciled, normalized and cross-related.  

With one set of dashboards and one set of reports.  So now, instead of you wasting time on reconciling data from multiple tools and systems, you immediately have actionable information to manage your hardware estate.

Being able to get a full picture of all your hardware assets is critical. Getting that full picture on one platform just makes perfect sense.  

So, let’s leave the swivel chairs for your desk and get them out of your hardware asset management.
