Hardware and Software Inventory


RayFlow Dashboard


Discovering what software applications and what licenses are installed in your company is not an easy task. It is however a necessary step to perform in preparation for an OS migration or for an audit. Organizations today often have geographically distributed office locations, some of which have restricted network access due to security or plain logistics. Work councils and data protection rules can also hinder the collection of data in large enterprises.

All these factors make it difficult for IT administrators to perform software application discovery, which is crucial when starting a software asset management project or when faced with an audit. Companies typically have to revert to manually scanning their devices, which then becomes a never-ending, expensive task with often inaccurate results.
