Abstract

Inventorying or asset management of PCs is one of the most expensive cost of ownership costs. On average, this costs runs $20 per PC per month according to IGS. While some of this cost is to maintain accurate records for write-downs, support and the like, some of this expense is to insure no PC is lost with valuable data without knowledge of its disappearance.
