Asset Management Suite provides predefined templates and quick-start processes that help you set up and manage the following asset management processes:
Managing configuration items.
Asset Management Suite helps you track assets and other resources. For each asset type that you want to track, you create a corresponding configuration item in the system. Templates are provided to help you create items for computers, printers, phones, furniture, and other assets.
After you create items for each asset, you can create configuration items for the details that you want to associate with the assets. You then specify the associations between the asset items and other items in your environment. For example, you can associate a computer with its purchase order, location, and user. Reports and filters help you determine the status of the assets in your environment.
Asset Management Suite helps you track software licenses and applications. You create configuration items for software licensing elements in your environment. You then associate these license-related items with other information in your system.
Asset Management Suite provides you the templates that let you create software products, software licenses, and software purchases. Reports and filters help you determine your software license compliance and requirements.
Procurement describes the process of obtaining new objects, assets, or devices for your company.
Asset Management Suite provides the templates that help you create and manage procurement-related configuration items. Creating and using these item types lets you track assets and resources from the initial procurement process to the eventual disposal. You can run reports and use filters to determine the status of items in your procurement process.
