Inventory, asset and lifecycle management, licence and contract management and much more.
Demo version

All-round tool for asset lifecycle management, IT scanning, inventory, licence management, contract management and much more.


Asset.Desk can be much more than a classic tool for IT scanning, inventory and asset management. It combines technical, organisational, security-related and commercial information on all company assets in one system. At the same time, it is modularly designed to adapt to the current requirements of a company and can be easily expanded at any time in case of changes.

The basis for successful IT asset management is the inventory of all hardware and software data present in the company, whether physical, virtual, mobile or in the cloud. Intelligent scanners automatically read the required data from the relevant platforms, operating systems and active directories and arrange them in the system. They add commercial data or, for example, information on security, risk, protection status or DSGVO. If required, enter all other assets in the system that you would like to manage as well. Accompany your assets throughout their entire lifecycle, from purchase to disposal, map licences and contracts in Asset.Desk and create transparency in inventory and costs.

Functional areas of Asset.Desk: Inventory, hardware and software scanning, licence management, lifecycle management, contract management, connectivity / interfaces, reporting, documentation, mobile inventory / RFID, purchasing and sales.
