Computer audit solution

Get full IT asset tracking and thus control of all software licenses, hardware information, user profiles and much more in just a few simple steps by using Specops Inventory, an extension to Group Policy. Installation and usage is simple and straightforward.  You can be up and running in hours instead of days, weeks or even months - which is the common implementation time of numerous competing solutions.

You can now do this and more by using Active Directory and Group Policy, an infrastructure you already own and have invested significant time, money, and resources in building. Specops Inventory is the first Group Policy based inventory solution reporting on all information from your Active Directory computer and user infrastructure.  Specops Inventory provides detailed asset tracking data for virtually all Windows based hardware and software.

Administration console

Specops Inventory's Hardware and PC Software inventory functionality snaps right in to the Group Policy Management console (GPMC).

The user interface is very consistent, clear and intuitive.  And, of course, context aware help is always available. There is no need to read through thick manuals before getting started with this powerful extension to Active Directory and Group Policy.

License compliance software

Specops License Manager gives you full IT asset tracking over your organization's software license compliance (PC Software Inventory). Get instant e-mail notifications when you are not license compliant or get notified when support or maintenance contracts are about to expire. Supplying your your organization's management team with detailed license compliance reports only takes a few moments when you use Specops Inventory.

IT asset tracking reports

Specops Reporting for Specops Inventory lets you browse, administer and oversee information from all of your organization's desktops and servers in a simple to use web based interface. Just use Drag and Drop to create new reports of your environment or use the built in reports that come standard with this product. You can also exchange report definitions with other Specops Inventory users.

Specops Inventory's Reporting also provides single computer or user reports directly from the Active Directory Users and Computers interface. A single, standardized console to report on and manage users and computers simplifies asset management and eases the burden on already taxed IT resources.

Customer quotes

Trevor Robinson, Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, USA:

“What we really like is having the ability to make changes today and then perform an inventory query and see that any and all changes we make actually take place”

“What I also like is the ability to make and access my reports from anywhere which saves me time and allows me to provide my management with the information they need in order to make informed decisions.”

Joshua Erquiaga, IT Director, Forest Home Ministries, USA:

“We were excited about two things with Specops Inventory. The first was that it relied on our existing infrastructure with Active Directory and Group Policy which we were familiar with. The second was that the reporting capabilities of Specops Inventory were very detailed as to what type of data we could gather and the kind of reports we could create.”
