Asset Management

Introduction

 

SysAid comes fully equipped with a complete asset management system. You will easily keep track of all of your physical IT assets within SysAid in order to optimally manage your overall IT environment. Benefits of SysAid Asset Management include:

 

In order to benefit from SysAid Asset Management, you must import all of your assets into SysAid. In SysAid, there are effectively three different types of assets:

  1. Computers
  2. SNMP devices
  3. Smartphones
  4. Everything else

 

The differences between these types of assets are as follows:

Computers
You install the SysAid agent onto computers for automatic, real-time asset management. Alternatively, you may import Windows computers by performing a WMI scan.
SNMP devices
You perform regular network scans to identify, import, and update your various different SNMP devices.
Smartphones
You enroll smartphones using Mobile Device Management (MDM) to automatically manage them through SysAid.
Everything else
Any non-computer, non-SNMP device is imported into SysAid manually, either one-by-one, or all at once from a .csv file.
