The presentation might be improved a little.
A very capable and down-to-earth product.
Praise be! A software vendor that supplies a comprehensive and well-written printed product manual, and a host of other documentation to leave you in no doubt about the product, and how best to use it.
This demonstrates both a pride in its product and a respect for the user that distinguishes it as a serious and professional company.
This attention to detail remains evident as you install the product, and then start using it and understanding its various processes and functionality.
The accuracy and clarity of information collected from client machines was impressive when using TS Census, promoting a steadily growing confidence in this product.
A logical, paned dialog provides functionality to swiftly switch between managed tasks, queries and reports, with main output and associated detail displayed in separate panes. The configuration of queries and required output is particularly flexible and will allow users, once habituated, to be both precise and succinct in developing their audit-related tasks.
The reports functionality is equally flexible, with nicely formatted reports displayed on screen or saved to file. They can also be exported in a great many formats to a disk file or mail program. Audits can, of course, be scheduled and set up for a defined duration, which will be helpful when dealing with infrequently connecting remote users, and a usage monitoring module is also available.
A remote client install utility was provided on a separate disk, and we understand that this is likely be integrated into future releases of TS Census. This is potentially a very flexible product. A Swiss army knife software package for those who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and really get to grips with inventory management.
It might not wear the prettiest dress at the ball, but with TS Census, frivolities are out and solid functionality is in. This is the sort of product that typically attracts a loyal following among discerning users. One for the short list.
