Spiceworks announced a new cloud-based Spiceworks Inventory application that integrates with the cloud editions of Spiceworks Help Desk and Spiceworks Remote Support to help IT professionals more intuitively manage their technology assets and support end users from a single, easy-to-use ecosystem.

The new cloud-based Spiceworks Inventory helps businesses discover all IP-enabled devices on their network from laptops and servers to smartphones and IoT devices. Together, Spiceworks Inventory, Help Desk, and Remote Support close the knowledge gap between the hardware and software on corporate networks and the technology challenges businesses are encountering. In the coming months, Spiceworks Connectivity Dashboard will also integrate with the cloud-based applications to help ensure end users stay connected to mission-critical applications.

Key features and use cases for the cloud-based version of Spiceworks Inventory include:

- Scan and report on all IP-enabled devices with details such as the manufacturer, MAC Address, IP address, device name, and open ports.

- Document hardware details for workstations and servers, such as the CPU, memory, disk, network, serial number, and more.

- Document installed software on workstations and servers, such as the software install date, name, vendor, and version of all software installed on each computer.

- Identify all operating systems on a network, including Windows and Mac systems, and spot devices running operating systems that have reached end of life.

- Discover devices and software from unwanted or unknown vendors and create a help desk ticket to track your investigation.

The cloud version of Spiceworks Inventory is now available.
