IT Hardware Inventory Increasingly Important and Demanding

In order to find IT inventory software for the increasingly complex IT inventory, many companies ask themselves questions such as “Is there an inventory programme that employees can use with Windows and Linux alike?”, “Is there a free programme available to manage computers, accessories and licences?” or “Do we even need an extra inventory programme for IT assets?”

The days when companies owned only a few mobile devices are long gone. Today, barcode scanners, company tablets, service smartphones and employee notebooks are part of everyday work in many industries. IT infrastructures have grown in recent years and decades – and with them the need for management.

IT inventory software can be found on more and more business devices. Depending on the strategy chosen, this can be operated by individual, authorised persons or by many trained employees. Parameters such as device status, location history, inspection dates, maintenance and repairs must be recorded. Optionally, photos of the hardware and its operating instructions can be stored in inventory software.

A digital inventory management system that also documents software assets is a good solution. After all, software licences are sometimes not linked to users, but to devices. Colleagues in the home office or on business trips in particular will appreciate cloud-based inventory management that allows them to quickly determine which devices and programmes are currently available.

Last but not least, good IT asset management software also helps with disposition, as it can store not only historical location histories and loans, but also planned, future uses and inventory movements to provide information about them later.

Is IT Inventory Software That Is Free of Charge Recommendable?

With a soundly programmed app that can track and manage inventory automatically, companies reduce material losses and search costs. Good inventory software ensures that equipment, machinery and facilities work when they are needed. It also covers hardware and software so that company employees can find all their work equipment in the desired condition in the intended location.

Many people try to do the software inventory with programmes that are already available on their server or local computer. It should be noted that externally purchased IT inventory software offers more functions than, for example, the Windows Active Directory service. In addition, an operating system-independent inventory programme can also be used by employees who work with Macintosh or Linux instead of Windows.

Freeware for IT asset management can be helpful as a start. However, after only a short period of use, company-specific needs usually become apparent that cannot be covered by simple, free software. These needs should be noted down so that they can be addressed later when configuring a better, professional inventory programme. A customer-oriented IT solution, for example, has exactly those database fields that are relevant in the company.

Furthermore, you have the choice between an inventory solution in the cloud and software that runs on premise. In most cases, storing the inventory database on our secure servers will be cost-saving for the customer. However, in some companies there is sufficient space on their own server and capacity in the IT department to install the Timly inventory programme on premise.

Is IT Inventory With Open Source Software Useful?

If you are planning to create a network and software inventory, you need a digital tool that you can rely on for the long term. Software companies that offer support and customisation live off their programme code, which they therefore do not want to share with the public.

To pay salaries and business leases, they have to take user fees from their customers. This investment pays off for software users after some time, because fewer staff costs are spent on inventory management. In addition, employees are more satisfied with high-quality inventory software because such asset management software is easier to use and leads to better work results.

Open source IT inventory software usually does not include a mobile app. However, this is an extremely helpful feature that makes things easier for employees in all work areas and at very different work locations. With modern IT inventory software such as Timly, QR code labels can be printed out and attached to the hardware to be inventoried.

They can be scanned with standard smartphones and tablets, so that you have quick access to the inventory database directly on site. This makes it possible, for example, to check in the warehouse whether an older desktop PC has undergone an electrical inspection in the last year. Information on the installed software can also be retrieved if it has been entered by an authorised colleague.

Software for IT Inventory Management Can Serve the Entire Inventory Management Process

A company that uses comprehensive, professional inventory software solves several problems of everyday work with one investment. For example, the IT inventory software can directly take over the management of furniture, vehicles, machines and other inventory items. A more extensive software solution proves its worth especially in larger companies with many departments and several locations.

But also in small companies or administrations with a multitude of hardware and software, the use of a versatile database software for inventory is worthwhile. Timly offers training for employees, assistance with individual programme configuration and long-term support.

Of course, there is the possibility to use free inventory software solutions and checklists for inventory. But is this advisable for a professional management of resources? So much in advance: We are of the opinion that this is not advisable, because free inventory software usually only offers rudimentary functions for managing inventory.

The safety officer tasks are diverse, regardless of whether a company speaks of an EHS manager, safety master or specialist for occupational safety. Keeping an eye on all devices, machines and systems as well as the further training of colleagues can be challenging for the safety technician if he is not using well thought-out software.

What A Good Maintenance App Can Do

Many companies only realise that maintenance software is needed when it is too late: an important order is due, but the relevant machine suddenly makes suspicious noises. An official letter announces that inspection deadlines have passed or an employee suffers an accident because he was using something with a previously unknown defect.
