EMCO Software, a leading provider of software and hardware audit solutions for Windows networks, has announced a new release of EMCO Network Inventory. The new release is focused on improving performance of remote audit operations and collecting new data from remote PCs.

EMCO Network Inventory is a software application designed to work in Windows networks and enabling network administrators to perform a complete audit of remote PCs connected to a LAN/WAN. The application allows extracting detailed software and hardware information, which includes thousands of items, from every PC. In particular, the collected information includes specifications for every hardware component, such as the CPU, the memory, the motherboard, etc. The extracted data includes the hardware manufacturer, the model, the serial number if available and so on. For complex hardware devices, network administrators can audit their parameters such as, for example, the number of memory slots and free slots on a motherboard. All the collected information is stored in a centralized database, so the administrators can see where the same components are used and can plan upgrades more effectively.

In addition to hardware audits, EMCO Network Inventory allows collecting data about the installed OS and applications from every PC. For every application, the reported information includes the vendor, the version and other parameters displayed by Windows Programs and Features. The collected software information is aggregated, so it is possible to see the total number of installations of every application across a network and compare it with the number of purchased licenses to generate a license compliance report. Also, it's easy to detect the PCs where a particular application is installed, for instance to upgrade it.

The new version of EMCO Network Inventory includes a new engine that extracts software licensing info from remote PCs. It allows reporting Windows OS and Microsoft Office licenses for every remote PC. The collected information can be used for licenses audit and for restoring lost licenses.

"EMCO Network Inventory is a universal auditing tool for network administrators. Using the application, network administrators can perform a vast scope of tasks, such as auditing software and hardware, planning upgrades, generating inventory reports, even looking for the same hardware to use as replacement. It allows resolving typical administration problems with a single click," Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, says.
