What is asset tracking software?
Asset tracking software is a type of software that can be used to track the movement of IT equipment, devices, and software in an IT environment.
It provides an inventory of all the technologies that make up an IT environment or infrastructure and can track the location of each individual asset.
Asset tracking software is used by network, systems, and IT administrators to provide quantitative recording and physical monitoring of all IT assets. Asset tracking software is usually able to search the entire IT infrastructure for IT assets and to create a company-wide IT inventory. The tasks of the asset tracking software include:
- Software inventory management
