Software license renewals are often performed with limited insights. Many times renewals are automatic without regard to actual need.
When you are able to quickly review and verify software utilization you will have greater confidence in your software purchase decisions.
Traditionally, software usage detection was limited to finding where software was installed and last time opened. SofTrack's Managed Assets provides a unique technology that provides you with the ability to verify usage. Usage verification includes both single and suite/collections-based applications.
Our unique technology based on our 30+ years of experience ensures utilization of every application from any vendor is always reported. Utilization is detailed by including, per usage, active seconds, idle seconds, and page titles (windows captions) viewed. All user-opened applications are automatically tracked by a light-weight workstation agent. It is light-weight due to its design to always operate in the background, never interfering with the user experience. There is no pre-configuration required. There is no reliance on any third-party reporting or usage event logging from other sources.
SofTrack's Managed Assets Utilization Intelligence report will provide a single line summary detailing the following by selected date range:
SofTrack's Managed Assets includes user-definable Software Categories that enable normalization on your terms. By combining relevant applications together, you receive reports that provide usage of any number of applications, including suites/collections, that meets your specific requirements. Software Categories can be created and re-assigned at any time, each are used only for generating reports.
Our always on technology continuously journals all user activity including the lack of activity as shown by idle applications.
When a network connection is available, detailed user activity journals are automatically uploaded to a server you control.
Once uploaded, the journals are processed by a server agent into SQL Server® for reporting.

Gathering of User Activity
An easy to install workstation agent that requires no configuration and no active network connection to fully operate and journal all user initiated activity. Our low-impact design typically does not require white-listing in your endpoint protection system.
Our administrator interface is used to create an MSI for installation of the workstation agent. The resulting agent installation does not appear in the list of installed applications.
The activity journals from each workstation/client will automatically be uploaded to your self-hosted cloud or on-premise server (via IPv4 or Named Pipes). The journal files can also be emailed or manually copied, providing comprehensive methods to ensure your data is always collected and reportable.
The administrator interface does provide the ability to create reporting locations (entities) for each MSI. These entities are utilized to determine the SQL database to be user for activity journals.
This unique functionality enables simple division of records by any determination you create. For instance, geographic, personnel classification, sub-contractors, and so on. The MSI entity configuration can be changed or updated as needed at each workstation. Reporting includes the ability to combine entities to achieve an overall enterprise view.
