Once the network is scanned, all your assets will be imported into ServiceDesk Plus. This allows you to drill down to get more specific information of particular software like the number of purchased licenses, licensed installations, licensing compliances etc. From the history, you can get complete information about when a software was installed, the workstation it was installed and more.
Not surprisingly, there might be unused software in your enterprise that increases your software budget. Software metering in ServiceDesk Plus helps you give information on the frequently used, rarely used and occasionally used software fetched from Add Remove Programs thereby helping you plan your future purchases wisely.
With ServiceDesk Plus, you can extend the scope of managing software licenses installed across the enterprise and be software compliant across all sites.

You can also track upgraded and downgraded software licenses and also purchase the upgrade licenses using the Purchase Orders.
