In order to keep track of their IT inventory, companies need to have reliable and modern software. The so-called Lan-Inspector, produced by the company VisLogic domiciled in Elmshorn, is the perfect tool for this purpose. At this year’s CeBIT, the current product version 10 was awarded with the innovation prize in the IT category. “Computer networks are as unique as companies’ services and products,” says Maxim Szenessy, managing director of VisLogic. “Therefore, creating a complete inventory data base is automatically a challenging task.” This is where the Lan-Inspector 10 helps out: it manages to scan all computers in a network and even reaches devices located in other countries when they are connected to the internet. “These notebooks can be inventoried via e-mail, if security restrictions prevent any other method,” Szenessy explains.
