Tally Systems Releases TS.Census for Microsoft SMS

Tally Systems Corp. released a new integration between Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) and its asset tracking software, TS.Census. The new TS.Census 1.1 will allow network managers to import PC hardware and software asset information directly from TS.Census into SMS versions 2.0 or 1.2.

TS.Census uses Tally Systems’ Census recognition technology to enhance SMS with product-oriented and accurate details about PC hardware and software, such as language edition and serial number, and hardware make, model, asset tag, and serial number.

The new TS.Census SMS integration uses .MIF file formats to enable SMS to gather and report TS.Census inventory data. Once imported, TS.Census data appears as standard SMS inventory data. TS.Census also offers complete asset historical tracking and inventory scan-on-demand, as well as a client-server database, and TCP/IP-based infrastructure.
