Hardware Inventory

Whether you are responsible for IT equipment in a warehouse, a large corporation or logging equipment for a client, hardware inventory management software is essential to your business.

IT Hardware Inventory Management Software

Tracking hardware in any scenario entails creating records of computers, laptops, routers, servers, and other networking devices to record details that include the name of the item, description, size, color, manufacturer, serial number, and any other pertinent information for that item. Being aware of hardware inventory on the work premises gives you control over various operations:

  • Know precisely what equipment and software is installed to provide the IT specialist necessary information for ordering replacement parts.
  • Catalog all equipment and parts installed within them.
  • Keeping track of software makes and models lets the specialist know when outdated software needs to be updated
  • Know which equipment was moved from one location to another, on-site or to a new office space.
  • Keep track of people using equipment to hinder theft and monitor hardware and software changes.
  • Designate certain work tasks to specific employees
  • Track maintenance of products by serial number to determine whether it is more cost effective to repair or replace the item
