Busy IT Asset Managers Spur Launch of VAM 2004+
AUSTIN, TX, Nov. 02, 2004 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- The growing needs of IT asset managers worldwide played a significant role in influencing the content of NetSimplicity's new VAM 2004+, an updated version of the company's Visual Asset Manager software solution.
Designed to help IT managers track assets within a company, VAM 2004+ boasts improvements that can effectively manage more types of assets -- fixed and shared-use -- across more locations.
Among the new features of VAM 2004+ are:
- Asset Check In/Out -- for tracking who checks out an asset (such as an
LCD projector), when it was checked out and when it is due to be returned.
- Multi-Location -- for users who need to track and manage assets at
multiple locations within their organization.
- Enhanced Categorization -- for sub-categorizing assets to support more
sophisticated tracking schemes, such as "Computer/Laptops" and
"Computers/Desktops" versus current "Computers".
Additionally, VAM 2004+ contains features such enhanced reports, new search capabilities and user interface performance enhancements, all in response to requests from IT manager users.
"As a rule, IT asset managers have a lot on their plate and lead pretty hectic lives," said Nancy Harris, vice president of software at NetSimplicity. "We've added new features to VAM 2004+ that will make it easier and improve their efficiencies when it comes to managing a company's IT assets."
Harris added that conversations with IT managers during the past year confirmed the VAM 2004+ release was on the right track, particularly with regard to the Asset Check In/Out feature.
VAM 2004+ comes in two versions to meet the needs and budgets of any size organization and a range of options are also available. The Lite Version starts at $399 while the Pro Version starts at $2,299.
