  • You can determine yourself which license models you want to map. This is how you get your personalized license management

Exact license assignment

  • Catalog the software types and versions used in your company according to your needs. Optimize the maintained license metrics and check the allocation to the purchased licenses. Summarize the software products cataloged with Asset.Desk to get a complete overview of the software requiring licenses
  • Decide for yourself the level of detail at which you collect license information and process it according to the installed systems
  • The result is the license balance in Asset.Desk, which gives you an overview of the assigned licenses and shows, for example, where no license has been assigned yet and whether there are still enough free licenses available
  • This way, you have an overview of the opportunities and risks resulting from license management in your company at any time

  • Intuitive drill-down options provide deeper insights into the respective data situation and key figures based on the standard reports

Active Directory Assignment

  • Software can be assigned to users or clients via Active Directory
  • With Active Directory CAL assignment, the correct assignment of User or Device CAL to active devices or employees of an AD group or OU can be controlled automatically in Asset.Desk
