Asset Management


Computer Asset Management

To get to the root of problems and provide solutions quickly and efficiently, IT professionals need a complete IT asset management of the servers, workstations, mobile computers and software on the network. This task increases in difficulty as the network expands beyond the walls of the organization to multiple remote locations.

Advanced Data delivers this comprehensive IT asset management right to your fingertips. Automatic recurring network discovery and system audits keep inventory up-to-date and accurate at all times. Using a Web browser, you can quickly access the computer inventory information needed to see and manage the network efficiently from anywhere at any time.

A simple automated scan of the network will identify any IP-enabled device to obtain an accurate picture of your IT assets.

  • Find misplaced or forgotten computers, printers and routers
  • Gather basic inventory data or detailed hardware, software and OS configuration data
  • Easy-to-use query tools help you analyze inventory data and group assets according to attributes
  • Automated inventory scans help you understand what you have without manually gathering data
  • Software and License Audit
  • Discover and inventory all software applications, license keys and duplicate licenses
  • Prevent users from launching unauthorized software whether it is installed or not, even when not connected to the network

    To maintain corporate compliance, it is essential to know what software is installed on which machines and the license availability of your critical business applications and operating systems. Our detailed reporting capabilities will give you the critical information about your IT assets.


Thin Clients

Asheville Thin ClientsThin Client/Diskless Workstation Deployment

If your organization is facing replacement of aging workstation hardware or is tired of the costs involved in managing desktop workstations, you should consider deploying a thin client or diskless workstation solution.

This solution can be combined with a desktop Linux solution to maximize savings in hardware and software.  Organizations that have a standard set of applications that all or most users need are ideal candidates for a thin client workstation solution as all settings and applications can be centrally managed.

We can deploy a thin client/diskless workstation solution in your organization by utilizing existing desktop workstation hardware or by using new hardware costing far less than normal desktop workstations.

Combining this savings in hardware with use of thin client operating systems, you can realize a significant reduction in capital spending along with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your desktop workstations.
