Teqtivity is a cloud-based IT asset management system that helps organizations take control of their IT investments by tracking the complete lifecycle of these assets from the point of origin up until their disposal. Integrated seamlessly with other existing systems, Teqtivity can enhance any organization’s workflow.
This article lists six popular systems or applications that can be easily integrated with Teqtivity, and how companies, schools, and other institutions can benefit from the integration.
MS Active Directory
One of the most used applications by organizations, Microsoft’s Active Directory, is a database and a host of services that connect end-users with network resources they need for their jobs.
AD’s database contains critical information on an organization’s IT environment. This includes computers, the rules for using them, and the users assigned to each one. Other than the name and credentials, user accounts may also consist of job titles, phone numbers, email addresses, and more.
With Active Directory, administrators can grant users access to IT assets by assigning them a user ID and password. The directory then records the user’s permission, along with the limitations of their access to company data.
Integrating Teqtivity with Active Directory makes Asset lifecycle management and collection easier. Administrators can sync user records between the two platforms, and they can then review specific asset data. This results in more simplified reports categorized by specific attributes like department, location, and users.
Aside from providing companies access to Gmail accounts on a preferred domain and a complimentary Google Drive storage, Google Workspace also offers various Google office productivity tools like Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar, Hangouts, and many more.
With the integration of Google Workspace and Teqtivity, IT administrators can manage not just users but also IT assets. The integration also combines Google’s secure sign-on feature and Teqtivity’s Asset tracking solution.
A workplace communication tool, Slack mainly serves as a chatroom shared among all members of an organization. Aside from this, they also feature many add-ins for other workplace tools. Slack can also sync with other commonly used applications like Google Drive and Google Calendar.
Teqtivity can utilize Slack’s communication features for notifying teams and employees regarding loaner return dates of IT assets. This way, users and asset managers can be notified of late returns or missing devices.
As an Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, OneLogin provides users with a single sign-on experience for accessing various applications used by the organization. There’s no need for users to remember multiple passwords on different applications.
OneLogin provides a single platform listing all the apps and other resources assigned to each user, and the user only has to sign on once to gain access to all of them. Eliminating the use of multiple passwords helps reduce vulnerabilities. This protection can even extend to controlling WiFi, VPNs, and Remote Desktop sessions.
Combining OneLogin with Teqtivity gives a higher layer of security for anyone using these business applications and makes life easier for them. End users will only need a single set of credentials to access all of the assets assigned to them, not just the applications but also IT hardware assets owned by the organization.
Crashplan’s software backs up data to remote servers or hard drives. Linking it to Teqtivity adds another layer of protection against data loss and enables asset management and data security teams to monitor cloud backups from every device.
This integration ensures that the right data is always accessible from any device within the organization. You’d never have to worry again if the data stored in each returned asset has been backed up before they’re wiped clean for redeployment.
Various Mobile Device Management (MDM) Systems
Mobile devices are a vital contributor to a company’s success. This is why managing them well is of utmost importance. That’s where MDM’s come in. Instead of a single application, this section will talk about all Mobile Device Management systems as a whole. MDMs provide means to control mobile devices within an organization. They enable administrators to set and enforce policies on mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
An MDM makes organizations feel comfortable about their people carrying sensitive information in their company-issued devices. You can have a highly productive workforce without sacrificing data security.
Combining an MDM with Teqtivity’s asset report tools allows administrators to track devices across the organization, and they’ll be able to see who’s checking into which device. As a result, they can make sure that each device is assigned to the right user, and they can also have a clear visualization of asset data. This data may include device configurations, security protocols, applications installed, and even usage patterns.
MDM’s like WorkspaceOne, MobileIron, and Intune support all types of devices, and operating systems, while Jamf specializes in providing management solutions to iOS devices like iPhones, iPads, macOS computers, and even Apple TV.
When you integrate Teqtivity with your existing systems for management, reporting, and service desk applications, you can revolutionize your organization’s hardware asset management. Furthermore, Teqtivity’s API integration allows your staff to keep using the same tools they’ve already accustomed to. This means much less training time is needed compared to adopting a new system.
