IT Asset Management & a Distributed Workforce
The firm has established a presence in most major economic centers across the United States, from north to south and coast to coast. Most office locations have a handful of staff, and as they grow in size, the firm realized they needed to get a handle on managing the laptops that the staff used. They sought an IT Asset Management solution with a centralized console that automatically monitors and manages approximately 100 laptops in over a dozen geographically distributed locations.
The LanScope Cat Solution
The firm selected LanScope Cat to provide a centralized platform for managing employee laptops. New machines are automatically detected and added to the centralized inventory. With LanScope Cat, this recruiting and staffing firm:
- Maintains a centralized dashboard view of all employees’ laptops in use.

warranty and replacement life cycles.
- Records and reports on internet usage so that management can understand workforce
cycles and productivity.
