Asset and Licence Manager

Activate Asset and Licence Manager allows for the management of Assets to be delegated to users and Asset Owners. Assets can include Software Licences, Mobile Phone Connections, Fixed Phone Extensions, Computers, iPads, Laptops etc.

  • Automatically allocate an Asset as part of an Activate Service Catalogue Item
  • Create, Update and Delete Assets
  • Bulk sync of Assets to and from remote systems
  • Flexible business processes for different Asset classes
  • Automatic Asset Ownership based on Roles
  • Automatically assign Cost Centres based on HR roles

Activate manages the Asset for the entire Asset lifecycle from provisioning the asset, through to asset transfers between cost centres and finally the disposing of the Asset.

Activate Asset and Licence Manager is integrated with the Activate Services Manager Module to allow the automatic allocation and release of Software Licences and other assets as they are assigned and released by users. This minimises the amount of manual maintenance that is required by IT and means that the asset information is always up to date.

Assets such as Software Licences and mobile phone connections can be a significant budget item for organisations and more closely managing these can represent significant savings. Typically, a major challenge with asset management is maintaining accurate data. By integrating with user requests via the Services Manager Module and also with existing automated inventory gathering tools like Microsoft SCCM, Activate Asset Manager provides a comprehensive 360 degree view of what users have and what they are authorised to have.

    Assets such as Software Licences can be imported or bulk created as part of procurement processes
  • Automatic Licence and Asset Management with Associated Services
