Software Inventory


Action1 streamlines IT software inventory management with comprehensive reports. Action1 provides overview data such as “Installed Software” as well as reports that focus on specific assets including “Cloud Storage Apps” and “Instant Messengers”.

With the Action1 monitoring tool, Windows software inventory is built automatically. The platform scans your endpoints and discovers locally installed apps and programs. Navigate to Real-Time Reports & Alerts / Built-in Reports / IT Asset Management / Software Inventory to browse your IT inventory.

Software Assets Overview

The Installed Software report highlights all apps installed on remote workstations and computers connected to your local network. In a basic view with collapsed details, you’ll get a complete list of apps and the number of endpoints where each app is installed. Expand details to see endpoint names and get more information about each app such as its version, vendor, installation date and location, etc.
