  • CMDB Solution

    CMDB Solution lets you manage your data in the Configuration Management Database (CMDB).

  • Data Connector

    Data Connector lets you import and export resource data between numerous external data sources and the CMDB. For example, you can import organizational view and group memberships and resource filter membership information. Additionally, you can export reports.

Barcode Manager

Barcode Manager must be installed on the laptop or workstation of each barcode technician. These computers become hosts for barcode scanning devices. Barcode technicians use their host computers to install the Barcoder on their handheld scanners. After the installation is accomplished, the handheld devices can communicate with Notification Server whenever they are connected to the host systems.
