Increase Efficiency, Reduce Costs

Why you should opt for the central IT inventory system PASS System Inventory

A central inventory system for your IT landscape

IT inventory management is carried out in companies 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 hardware 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. 

Reducing manual processes

With decentralized data storage, the work of IT employees and managers becomes a time-consuming and cost-intensive process. With PASS System Inventory, however, you avoid having to carry out tedious manual maintenance tasks and therefore reduce duplicate storage.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Frequently asked questions from our customers about IT inventory management with the software solution PASS System Inventory

Practical experience has shown that automated software inventory brings with it enormous potential for error due to incorrect or duplicate recognition or inaccessible remote systems. Instead, normal or permanent maintenance using a computer-aided system for IT inventory is much more reliable.

Following the migration, the data can be integrated into the software deployment process of the IT department without a great deal of extra effort.

The cleansing of previous inventory data and the migration can be carried out by us or by your company. To this end, you can enter all data over a certain period initially using a separate inventory solution on-site.

A rights structure based on groups is available in PASS System Inventory and can be individually configured, adjusted and assigned.

PASS System Inventory is currently only available in German. Other languages on request.
