Certero AssetStudio is a powerful tool that provides much more than just a regular SAM tool. It really helps with taking stock of assets and easy dashboards to identify trends and other useful information.

Clare from London Borough of Hillingdon
The product itself has improved our ability to pull off meaningful reports which has significantly reduced staff time and makes it easy for us to identify equipment/software which can be reused elsewhere and see at a glance where we have software licensing issues. Dashboard is an excellent feature where we have input some key charts/figures that we want to keep an eye on in real time.
David from McCann
We took on a 12 month process to evaluate several ITAM tools and in the end Cetero was the clear winner. With the role out and training now completed we do not regret out decision and keep finding more and more useful way of using the tool to assist in day to day IT Support and Management.
