Asset management software eases network tasks

While a number of educational institutions are poised to leverage the stability and features of the new Windows 7 operating system, network-wide upgrades can be time-consuming, intrusive, and riddled with conflicts and problems. EMS v3.0, an IT asset management software solution from CrossTec Corporation, facilitates efficient network-wide upgrades, reducing time, costs, and interruptions in standard processes.

EMS 3.0 allows Education IT administrators to inventory hardware and software, identify Windows 7-compliant PCs and software applications, provide "push-button" software distribution (as well as simplifying the dissemination of patches and upgrades), while providing alerting and reporting capabilities, as well as remote control functionality.
