Samanage enables users to monitor asset health by recording the number of tickets raised against that particular asset. In this way, the helpdesk features and asset management capabilities work in conjunction with each other to deliver a robust, overall IT Service Management solution.

It provides an overview of risks, asset status changes, incidents and issues - tracking and gathering statistics related to your IT infrastructure. Agents on your Samanage network can continuously report and receive status updates from the cloud-based servers.
Through Samanage, users can detect asset-related risks such as virus threats (or absence of an anti-virus solution) and unauthorized usage. They can also identify the need for asset replacements or exchanges, and meet software compliance standards for IT auditing reports. Finally, you can use the system to add and assign new contracts to assets. In turn, this enables you to create purchase orders for new and recurring contracts.
