BMC FootPrints Asset Core (BMC Client Management)

Do more with IT asset management—
from IT to the end user—on-premises or in the cloud

BMC FootPrints Asset Core is comprehensive client management software that automates IT asset management to help organizations control costs, maintain compliance, and reduce financial risks.

Introducing MyApps: asset management designed for the end user and the admin

Available as a fully-hosted or on-premises solution, FootPrints Asset Core breaks new ground in client management with MyApps, its intuitive app store for the desktop that empowers IT and the business. In two clicks, MyApps puts common software and access requests in the hands of the end user without going to any websites and without submitting any forms. IT can advertise available software applications, advanced actions, and quick links that end users can access on their schedule, not IT's.

With an emphatic focus on user experience, BMC FootPrints Asset Core featuring MyApps improves customer satisfaction and IT productivity, revealing the true value of IT service and support to the business.

MyApps empowers end users to meet their own needs:

  • Quickly install pre-approved software on demand – no more helpdesk tickets and remote sessions interrupting user productivity
  • Easily execute common IT tasks such as cleaning up temporary folders or defragging a hard disk drive to improve system performance — no more clicking through multiple menus, option tabs, and control panel settings
  • Conveniently search available options with filters, tooltips, and a look and feel that's easy for anyone to use

And enables IT to deliver streamlined services quickly and easily:

  • Delegate optional software availability based on a user's role or device type, providing users what they need beyond the standard image to be productive while accurately managing software licenses
  • Leverage tooltips, content descriptions, and customizable icons in an intuitive user experience, using the quick form to identify, assign, describe and publish to MyApps in just a few clicks
  • Reduce the impact to the helpdesk for common questions and software requests while driving an increased end-user experience with IT

Serious business benefits in a simple, streamlined solution
