How to get Model name to show up in devices


I am new to Kace and trying to figure out how to view the name of the computer model in the inventory devices list.  What I see now is the model number "20L5000UUS", but I want to see the name "T480".

I am thinking I could run a script, but I am not sure where to start.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

That's not Kace, that is the way the Lenovo bios identifies it's model number.  You would need to get Lenovo to change its bios or create a CIR to translate for you

That is how Lenovo named those devices, that information is coming from the BIOS and is being pulled using Windows WMIC queries.

Open CMD and type this: 

wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

Run this on a DELL or HP device, then on your Lenovo Device... mine shows this:
