NetSupport Inc. announces new NetSupport TCO version 4.5 asset management software. NetSupport TCO provides a modular, cost-effective network management solution for enterprise and workgroup environments.

NetSupport TCO automatically takes snapshots of IT desktop assets across major network platforms, including hardware, software, files and folders, configuration files and infrastructure devices, and sets the standard for out-of-the box desktop asset management. The product's infrastructure is full featured, easy-to-use, efficient on network resources, quick to deploy and economical to own.

New features of NetSupport TCO 4.5 include:

· Unattended software installation – IT professionals can record the install process and distribute it with the software packet for unattended software installation.

· Custom reporting – SQL database query tool for custom reporting of enterprise-wide hardware and software inventory, internet and application usage, help desk ticketing, etc.

· Remote client deployment – remotely deploy NetSupport TCO on to new PCs on the network.

their desktops.
