Expert Network Inventory

What is this?

Last update:

Expert Network Inventory is an innovative, high-performance inventory application that helps you trace and keep up-to-date all the necessary asset information concerning the computers on your organization network in order to save a considerable amount of your time.

The application uses distributed computing technology when the workstations of the cooperative network collect hardware and software information without using the resources of the Administrator’s computer.

You can see detailed information about more than 400 hardware and software items of every computer included in the asset list of the program. That information is displaying on the different pages grouped into several categories: “General information”, “Hardware”, “Software”, “Environment”, and “Miscellaneous”. All pages containing asset information records can be easily customized in order to fully comply with your individual needs.

About 30 different printable comprehensive reports help track an enormous quantity of information to network administrators in a quick and simple way. Expert Network Inventory has a built-in Report Designer that allows the user to easily develop custom reports using a Pascal-like programming language.

"Expert Network Inventory" has been tested in the Softpedia labs using several industry-leading security solutions and found to be completely clean of adware/spyware components. We are impressed with the quality of your product and encourage you to keep these high standards in the future."  More info...

How it works

The client computers of your network collect all the information you selected and write it in XML files. That information is then saved into application’s database, which enables the easy management of very large and heterogeneous network with nonpermanent connections. Database utilization lets you keep a history of the changes as long as you need.

Export Network Inventory consists of two modules: The ENI Agent module and the Administrator's Application.

When a user logs into the network, the logon process will execute the logon script specified for that user. This logon script will launch the ENI Agent that collects information about the user's computer and writes the output to the COMPUTERNAME.XML file in the shared data store folder. This folder can be located on a network drive, an FTP server, etc. Different computers on the network can place data into different folders, which can be convenient for large networks. Thus, the entire information on a computer’s software and hardware is updated after each reboot of the computer.

When the Network Administrator runs the Administrator's Application, this program reads the user information files from this data store folder and stores it in the database. All the information can be easily viewed and managed from the Administrator’s Application.

 

Lightning Fast Reporting is essential

You can export information from the internal database to almost any industrial standard databases such as MS SQL, Oracle, MySQL, Interbase and also MS Access, MS Excel, ODBC-compliant databases and HTML files. The application also allows you to collect asset information on computers and networks located anywhere by FTP protocol or email.

Moreover, Export Network Inventory will provide your organization with exhaustive and detailed reporting about all of the hardware and software on all of the computers on your network. These different printable comprehensive reports summarize your software and hardware inventory installed on the computers over the network. You can print, save the reports or export them to HTML, RTF, PDF, and other formats. In addition, you can make your own custom reports using Fast Report™ Builder.

The reports are divided into two groups:

  • Hardware reports about different categories of hardware;
  • Software reports.

Software Licenses

How much licenses do you have in your company? Does it match to the number of installations? ENI allows network administrator monitor the using of software licenses in your company quickly and easily.

You can see the installation count for every program in your Network and the number of licenses that your company legally owns.
You can generate a report that displays the difference between the number of licenses and number of installations for every software title actually found just by clicking the License Report button. If needed, you can exclude any title from the printed Licenses Report.

You can group software by categories. Once you have arranged all the software by category, you can quickly access the required software later on instead of searching for it among thousands of software titles. Each software category has its priority in the Software Licenses list.

Software Licenses

 

What are software categories for?

For example, suppose that a lot of freeware is installed on your company's computers. Since there is no need to specify the license count for this software category, you can create the category Freeware with the lowest priority and assign this category to all the freeware installed on your computers. All of the freeware will be placed at the bottom of the list without interfering with your work with commercial software.

Another example: suppose you want to create reports about the software of different publishers: Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle, Corel, etc. You should create categories named according to the publishers' titles and assign them the highest priority. In this case, the software of these companies will be compactly placed at the top of the software list.
