Express Software Manager integrates PC inventory and software metering into an easy-to-use IT asset management solution—providing IT professionals with much-needed visibility and control over their hardware and software assets. Express Metrix products are best known for delivering meaningful IT asset data that enable IT departments to demonstrate greater accountability in maintaining compliance with licensing agreements, reducing IT spending and overhead, and improving network security.
Express Software Manager prevailed over four other finalists in the asset management category including Centennial SAM.Suite (recently acquired by FrontRange Solutions), Dell Computer's eSMART, Novell's ZENworks Asset Management and TriActive's Systems Management On Demand. The award winners are chosen by current SIIA members, making the CODiE awards the only peer-reviewed honor in the software industry.

"We are thrilled to have won this award; it's a testament to our 13-plus years of focus on developing world-class IT asset management solutions and proves our decisive leadership in this space."
The selection of Express Software Manger by the SIIA validates what Express Metrix customers have long known to be true: the product helps them efficiently manage PC hardware and software and avoid unnecessary IT spending and overhead. Lynn Barbour, configuration & asset manager for Medavie Blue Cross, uses Express Software Manager to track IT asset inventory, stay compliant with software license agreements, restrict the use of unauthorized applications and track software utilization. "Using Express Software Manager to identify and eliminate spending on unused software saved our organization in excess of $400,000 last year alone," said Barbour.
