This versatile tool empowers administrators to perform various crucial actions:

  1. Import Company Organization: Import your organization's department addresses, contacts, networks, and other pertinent details. This time-saving feature enhances the organization and analysis of your printer fleet, enabling data visualization, analysis, and reporting by department, sub-department, or the entire organization.
  2. Import Discovery Networks Parameters: The Asset Tool allows users to import network discovery parameters, streamlining the process of finding printers. By configuring discovery data for all Central and Satellite DCAs from a centralized location valuable time is saved.
  3. Associate Networks with Departments: Seamlessly associate networks with departments, facilitating automatic printer assignment.

This integration enables effortless analysis and reporting of printer information by department, subdepartment, or the entire organization, optimizing resource allocation and cost management.
  4. Create, Delete, and Modify Custom Fields: Netaphor SiteAudit understands that certain printer information may not be obtained automatically. Hence, the Asset Tool allows users to create up to 15 custom fields, including text, number, and date fields. This invaluable functionality enables tracking of additional details such as contract names, expiration dates, or any unique information specific to your printer environment. Administrators can easily create, update, and populate these custom fields, ensuring accurate and comprehensive data tracking.
