This article explores the challenges you face and how Eagle-IoT ITAM, with its powerful features, can help you navigate them with ease. 

The Struggle is Real: Common IT Asset Management Pain Points 

  1. Lost Laptop Blues? Find Your Missing Assets Quickly   

Lost or misplaced IT assets are a frequent source of frustration for businesses. Whether it’s a laptop forgotten at a coffee shop or a missing server component, the inability to locate crucial equipment disrupts workflows, delays projects, and creates unnecessary downtime. Eagle-IoT ITAM leverages RFID technology to eliminate asset visibility blind spots. By attaching RFID tags to your IT equipment, gain real-time location tracking capabilities. Pinpoint the exact location of any asset within your organization, be it in a specific office, conference room, or even a remote location. This not only helps you locate missing equipment quickly but also deters unauthorized asset removal, enhancing security

  1. Shadow IT: The Unseen Threat to Your IT Ecosystem

Shadow IT refers to unauthorized software or hardware acquired and used by employees outside of the official IT procurement process. This lack of oversight creates security vulnerabilities, licensing compliance issues, and makes it difficult to maintain a complete and accurate asset inventory. Combat the shadow IT threat with Eagle-IoT automated workflows and enhanced accountability. The solution can automatically detect new devices connected to the network, alerting IT teams about potential unauthorized equipment. Additionally, user-based asset tracking allows you to monitor which employees are using specific assets, promoting responsible handling and minimizing the risk of unauthorized software installations. 

  1. Get Audit-Ready with ITAM  

Software audits can be a time-consuming and stressful ordeal. Manually gathering and verifying software licenses is not only tedious but also error-prone. Incomplete or inaccurate license records can lead to hefty fines and compliance penalties. Eagle-IoT ITAM streamlines the audit process by providing comprehensive reports and insights into your software licenses. You can easily track license usage, identify expiring licenses, and ensure compliance with software agreements. Additionally, seamless integration with existing IT service management (ITSM) systems allows you to manage all your IT assets and licenses from a single platform, minimizing paperwork and streamlining the audit process.
