for easy integration of third-party systems
Asset.Desk offers a variety of flexible interfaces for the integration of third-party systems, e.g. ERP-systems, Active Directory, System Management tools, etc.
The tool integrates smoothly into your existing system environment and processes. It complements these with a professional IT Asset- and license-management.
In case Asset.Desk is the leading system in your system environment, it generates and administers a unique Asset-ID (inventory number) by itself. Otherwise, it receives the Asset-ID from the leading system via the interface. Also, all of our systems, e.g HEINZELMANN Service.Desk, Install.Desk, Reserva or the mobile apps are integrated with this interface via Asset.Desk.
The Open Data Protocol (OData) enables data exchange between Asset.Desk and other systems. It works as a modern web-protocol thus enables data access and data manipulation. For the App Asset.Desk Mobile+ this means for example, that direct communication with Asset.Desk without data redundancy is possible. A connection of third-party systems to the gateway is possible anytime. The data transfer happens via http(s) requests and responses in JSON..
Numerous companies already use Microsoft SCCM for their software distribution and scanning processes. However, this product is not made for IT-Asset-Management. Moreover, it cannot display all license models on the market. With this interface the IT-Asset-Management and the software Asset Management in Asset.Desk can be built based on SCCM-scan data. The new SCCM interface enables the usage of the inventory information collected by the Microsoft-owned solution for anyone, who cannot count on the excellent scan methods of FCS and who have to introduce an ITAM into an existing enterprise environment with SCCM.n
