Feature Spotlight: InvGate Service Desk SCCM Integration

Posted by Sabrina Pagnotta on May 9, 2018 at 9:31 AM

Posted by InvGate on August 1, 2011 at 9:10 AM
The tracking of assets is acknowledged as integral to the process by which organizations manage their IT infrastructure. In the past, this strategy was geared toward reducing an enterprise’s total cost of ownership. The implementation of sound IT management software was, more often than not, associated with cost-cutting efforts in the IT division.
