Identifying and inventorying IT Assets is critical first step to effective IT Asset Management. With our SmartIT.Audit offering, NorthSmartIT will perform an intelligent tools based inventory of all IT hardware and software assets operating on your network. The initial audit will identify and validate assets and warranties as well as provide physical location and other asset related data, all of which will be uploaded to the SmartIT.Portal.
The SmartIT.Portal is a secure repository for all of our clients’ IT asset information including asset specific data, documentation, financial, contract, and vendor related information. SmartIT.Portal is the backbone of all of the NorthSmart IT service offerings and central to an effective IT Asset Management program. Effective ongoing management of IT assets through the use of SmartIT.Portal enables NorthSmart to deliver:
Reduced hardware and software support costs
Reduced software license compliance risk
Increased system availability
Increased user satisfaction with IT
