Kviptech lets you in control of your network assets

Kviptech announces Network Inventory Expert 2.12, an Asset Management and Inventory tool that audits a network for hardware and software without the need to install client software on remote machines. Based on Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) technology, the program is able to interrogate all machines on a network and report back with essential information about users, connections, running processes, software installed on individual machines and software quantity on the entire network. The information is added to a centralized XML data repository.

Network Inventory Expert 2.12 has an ability to retrieve additional information, such as Windows product keys, software product keys and their versions installed on the remote machines. Other improvements include a faster process for deleting computers from the inventory and an ability to copy the information from tabs to the clipboard.

The program enables you to search for machines in four different ways: across the entire current network segment, by an IP address range, through manual entry of computer names, and by importing text files of computer names. The retrieved remote system information is reported by the program as three categories of detailed information: system, software and processes. The program gives you an ability to generate detailed reports about all the machines with a one touch of a button and export them to formats, such as MS Excel, HTML, MS SQL, XML, MS Visio XML Drawing and RTF.

Pricing and Availability

The price depends on the number of tracked audit nodes and starts at US$99 for 10 machines. Discounts for volume buyers are available.
