Drill-down reports are organized in sets related to asset optimization, asset status and history, and change planning. The reports provide operational and strategic decision support information, and answer a wide range of practical and commercial asset-related questions. The Portal supports controlled access to multiple Asset Management Site Databases. Data can be exported in multiple formats, and distributed as email attachment without leaving the Portal.

Reports that answer your questions

Vector’s reports fulfil key roles for any organization seeking to follow today’s best practice frameworks such as ISO 19770 and ITIL. Examples –

  • Which PCs would support upgrade to Windows 10?
  • Which PCs are running below 1G of free disk space?
  • Have any PCs had a change of memory size in the last week?
  • Has anyone missed the recent Explorer upgrade?
  • Are all my installed copies of Application X of precisely the same version?
  • When was Application X last updated on the PCs in a particular department?
  • Based on patterns of use, are there some applications we should consider moving to a server or to streamed provision?

In the specific area of Software Asset Optimization, the reports provide drill–down access to information that identifies opportunities for software re-deployment and cost savings. Examples –

  • What software do we have installed?
  • Do we have sufficient licenses for all our Microsoft / Oracle / Adobe / etc software?
  • Are all the installed copies of our expensive accounting / marketing / business intelligence / etc packages regularly used?
  • How many copies of each application package in our portfolio do we really need? Do my installed copies match our assessment of what we need?
  • What reductions can we make in our annual software maintenance costs?
  • Do the patterns of use of the MS Office component programs justify my current annual costs? How many copies of Office Pro could be downgraded to Standard?
  • Are all my installed copies of Application X of precisely the same version?
  • When was Application X last updated on the PCs in a particular department?
  • Based on patterns of use, are there some applications we should consider moving to a server or to streamed provision?
