Hardware Asset Management Benefits

Benefits

Get the insight needed to manage your equipment

  • Get the enriched data required to minimize risk and costs of running your hardware
  • Manage assets throughout their lifecycle
  • Automate the lifecycle management process
  • Know the status of your assets from the time they’re requested until they’re disposed
Flexera provides enriched data required to minimize risk and costs of running your hardware

We tended to overbuy hardware in [some] cases, underbuy in other cases and not be able to properly check all the hardware assets so we didn’t know how to reallocate them. Now we see things getting moved around in the field and have great visibility of it. So I can show how we are essentially taking cost out of the business by effectively and efficiently managing hardware by repurposing, reallocating, and only buying what we need when we need it.

Automate the lifecycle

Flexera One automates the hardware lifecycle by integrating with hardware vendors, asset registers, procurement systems, inventory tools, barcoding equipment and disposal vendors to automatically set asset disposition. Now you can track assets as they move through their lifecycle and eliminate spreadsheets and manual processes.

Be alerted to lifecycle
events and triggers

Stay informed as hardware arrives and reaches end of life, warranty expiration or lease termination so you can make decisions to reduce risk. Flexera One enables you to find leased, missing and “ghost” machines to help protect your data/IP. Utilize non-discoverable market data from Flexera One like hardware end of life/end of support to avoid outages.

Save on software

Every year, companies toss millions of dollars of software into the virtual dumpster because the software is not reclaimed as assets are disposed. Flexera One automatically reclaims software and subscriptions as hardware is retired or refreshed so you can preserve your investment in the software licenses consumed by every piece of hardware.
