Automatic creation of your Asset.Desk software catalog
With the central software catalog, FCS always offers the most important, license-requiring catalog products, including the recognition rules for online retrieval from Asset.Desk. Among them e.g. the Microsoft Office family as well as the Adobe products.
- As a user of this service, you no longer need to manually create your software catalog in Asset.Desk.
- In addition, you save the effort of laboriously maintaining all recognition rules for catalog products yourself (mapping).
- This allows you to better focus on the essential tasks of license management and gives you more time to maintain license models, determine metrics, or identify needs.
- FCS takes over the maintenance of the catalog products for you centrally!
And here’s how it works
Your local Asset.Desk installation connects to our central catalog server via a web service and receives the current status of the software catalog including the recognition rules. You can transfer the products used in your company from the central catalog to Asset.Desk.
FCS permanently expands and updates the central software catalog. In your local Asset.Desk installation you can see at a glance which software product is newly available and which catalog software, which you have already transferred to Asset.Desk, needs an update. Thus, the catalog products in your license management are complete and up-to-date and always correctly assigned to the installed software.
