Asset Manager Essentials

Pre-Built, Cloud-Based IT Asset Management that Delivers High Value at a Low Cost


Dreading how to get an overview of your IT assets? Efficient and effective IT Asset Management (ITAM) can be a complex, costly, and time-consuming discipline. You are dealing with new assets coming into your IT estate every day, more complex contracts to keep track of, and compliance regulations to stay on top of.

Obtaining visibility into what IT assets you have and where they are, is an administrative headache, not to mention trying to keep track of assets on the move.

Due to the complexity of discovering, tracking and managing IT assets over their lifecycle, many organizations today are still not effectively tracking their assets:

  • 30% of IT fixed assets are “ghost” assets, or missing and cannot be found.*
  • 56% of enterprises verify the location of their fixed assets only once a year, while 10% to 15% have not verified their assets in more than five years.**

We are excited to introduce to you the new Ivanti Asset Manager Essentials solution. It’s a pre-built ITAM tool. In the cloud. For immediate visibility. At lower cost and complexity:

  • Pre-built ITAM: pre-packaged, fixed design for rapid, budget-friendly implementation
  • Out-of-the-box reports and dashboards: don’t rely on spreadsheets; discover, track, and manage your assets from procurement and purchase order to receipt, deployment and disposal.
  • Powerful data importing capabilities: support for many discovery sources including Ivanti Endpoint Manager, Data Center Discovery, barcode scans and more. Easily compare actual and discovered asset data and generate exception reports.
  • Proven Platform for growth:  built on the proven Ivanti cloud platform; features blended integration with Help Desk Essentials; based on industry best practices and Ivanti ITAM expertise.
  • Cloud-based: automatic feature and design updates eliminate the administration and maintenance headaches

Asset Manager Essentials – everything to get you ready with effective and efficient ITAM from day one.
