Inventory Software

PASS System Inventory: The software for the central
inventory management of hardware and software

Practice-oriented all-in-one Inventory Software

Our Inventory Software provides simple and clear inventory management of hardware, software, licenses, consumables, purchase orders and contracts, and provides a real-time, continuous view of assets under management. In addition, cross-departmental interfaces for IT Inventory Management (e.g. between IT and purchasing) are available to ensure a uniform flow of information and standardized processes.

Frequently, hardware, software and agreements are managed by companies in Excel lists. However, these become very complex and confusing as the scope increases. In addition, links between assets and users can only be displayed to a limited extent in Excel. Consequently, there is a substantial need for comprehensive Inventory Software to centrally organize, manage and monitor IT.

Our System Inventory is designed for multi-client operation with various different companies and organizational units, and is therefore also suitable for managing complex structures.

Why you should use inventory Software

A central asset tracking software for your IT infrastructure

IT Inventory Management is carried out in enterprises using a number of different systems, which are often incompatible with one another. Data integrity is corrupted, information is lost, the error rate is high, and all this leads to increased employee effort and rising costs. 

Trying to manage these elements is becoming ever more complex thanks to the increasing flexibility and fast-paced nature of devices and software in the IT area, not to mention the associated leasing and maintenance contracts.

Optimization and economization when assigning software licenses

Furthermore, license audits lead to high costs due to poorly maintained inventory systems. Different license models (per seat, per core, per user) additionally complicate the balancing of licenses and software. 

Reduce manual processes

Decentralized data storage leads to time-consuming and costly processes for IT employees and management. With our IT inventory management application, data is managed centrally. This avoids high manual maintenance efforts and double data storage.

Functions of our inventory Software

Dashboard

Clear and structured management display of individual categories, opportunity for direct entry into areas requiring action.

Historization/Timeline

Illustration of the hardware and software lifecycle. You can see which changes have been made to the system. For example, the change of owner/corporation is traceable.

Setup of hardware

Standardized fields for setting up different hardware categories. The freely configurable number ranges are automatically recognized. It is also possible to fill the form using previously defined standard models. Finally, the option for barcode and label printing can be selected directly.

Overview reporting

Reporting functionality for software, hardware and orders. In addition, detailed evaluations can be generated in the individual categories.

Hardware reporting

In addition to standard reports that can be called up with a click, it is also possible to create individual reports.

Hardware overview

This overview provides a quick access for some functions and provides predefined queries in table form, e.g. how many devices no user is currently assigned to.

Labels/Barcodes/Protocols

Labels/barcodes/logs can be generated for each asset and printed directly.

Handover protocol

Here is an example of a handover protocol. In the inventory system, logs can be generated for the entire IT lifecycle (transfer log, return log, leasing/lending log).

Material/Warehouse

Consumables such as giveaways can be managed via the warehouse. The warehouse key figures are recorded automatically, which enables reporting. This shows, among other things, the average delivery time.

Role and rights concept

Individual setting, which employees can see or edit which menu items.

Software license management

Creation of licenses incl. the commitment to a corporation and reference to proof of purchase (e.g. ticket number). During software distribution, the installation is performed on a mobile device. The automatic assignment of licenses on user and hardware level can be done by mouse click.

Telephone contracts

Similar to leasing contracts, telephone contracts also offer special functionalities. For example, it is possible to store the connected SIM cards including PIN and PUK. Phone contracts can be assigned to mobile devices as well as computers.

Rental

The rental of inventory to employees can be documented. A link to the respective asset is possible, as well as a notification as soon as the loan period has been exceeded.

System properties

Central management interface for administrators to standardize the possible entries of bookings and define the options for dropdown menus. Among other things, generic asset types can be defined here by the customer. E-mail notifications are also defined in the Admin Panel.

Administration and organization

Inventory users can be imported automatically via an LDAP connection or alternatively created manually. An overview of all assigned assets exists for each user. The IT inventory software also enables the management of workstations and supports the integration of new employees. Onboarding checklists can be created for this purpose. Employees can also create work equipment requests if they need new work equipment.

Multi-client function

Assets and users can be managed by level here. Users can only see and edit assets at their own level or a level below. Example: As a government agency, manage hundreds of laptops and tablets at multiple schools, for example.
