Asset and License Manager

Activate Asset and License Manager allows the management of assets to be delegated to users and asset owners. Assets can include Software Licenses, Mobile Phone Connections, Fixed Phone Extensions, Computers, iPads, Laptops etc.

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

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

Assets such as licenses and mobile phone connections can be a significant budget item for organizations 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 Services Manager 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 authorized to have.
