Increase IT department efficiency
- Prioritize which computers to refresh and update based on highest usage
- Reduce image size by removing unused software
- Quickly see software installed on each machine in a simple, exportable list
- Get a quick overview of hardware and software use without configuring complex reports
Maximize IT budget
