Cisco’s new software can automate inventory management, allowing customers to keep more inventory at home

By Simon TravagliaCisco Software has just launched its new software to help automate inventory-management software, enabling customers to store more inventory and avoid costly outages.

The new Cisco Inventory Management System (ISMS) enables IT teams to easily manage and share inventory in a distributed, automated manner, said Cisco’s CEO, John Chambers, in a statement on Monday.ISMS allows IT teams with more than one customer to access a single list of inventory information for a given device, enabling IT teams who are responsible for managing multiple devices to share information more efficiently.

This means IT teams can automate the process of inventory management across devices and locations, enabling organizations to manage inventory more efficiently and cost effectively, Chambers said.ISms will allow IT teams “to automate the inventory management process across multiple devices and areas,” and provide “an intuitive user interface for managing the inventory across a range of devices,” he said.

Cisco ISMS will allow customers to share inventory information across devices, regions, devices, and locations to allow customers “to better understand their inventory and the resources available to manage it,” Chambers said in the statement.

Cities and organizations should be able to manage their own inventory, and IT teams will now be able “to make sure they’re managing inventory properly,” he added.

The Cisco ISMS platform will enable IT teams across the globe to better understand and manage inventory in their environment, helping them to “ensure that their systems are always available to meet the most critical needs for customers,” Chambers added.CIS Software and its partners will continue to develop the software and services to support this new capability, which will help IT teams more efficiently manage and manage their inventory, he added, saying the new software is being rolled out in phases.
