Import computers and hardware purchase records from a spreadsheet pre-deployment, and Sassafras automatically recognizes the new hardware the first time it logs in. Printers can be imported from a spreadsheet or brought in automatically with our PaperCut integration. Manage computer locations with filters or Active Directory integration, and set, sort, manage, and filter on the lifecycle stage throughout the life of the hardware.
The Sassafras client program can be installed on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris operating systems, including virtual and thin client environments. Once connected, hardware details such as manufacturer, model, CPU, memory, free disk space, and more, are reported to the server, and an initial software audit reports every installed program.
In addition to monitoring and managing software usage, Sassafras also records computer usage events. The date, time, and username of every login session is recorded, making it easy to report on usage by computer, organizational unit, or user, including totals, peaks, and averages. One-click reports provide immediate access to login data for any location, while scheduled reports are emailed to a list of recipients on a regular basis.
