Admin Arsenal was founded in 2001 as a systems management consulting firm. That may sound impressive, but it was really just a way for Shane, Shawn, and Adam to earn money doing Tivoli and Microsoft gigs. It worked really well, but after a couple of years Shane and Adam started talking about creating a systems management tool that would fit well with small to medium companies.
After coming up with this ground breaking idea, Shane and Adam promptly set themselves to ignoring it. They pushed it down. Way down. We’re talking total repression. After another year of denial they came to themselves and decided to move forward. Following several overt threats to his family, Shawn finally agreed to transition the company from consulting to sales of systems management software. In 2006 the coding began and in 2007 we sold our first license of AA Console, a predecessor to our PDQ family. PDQ Deploy and Inventory came after testing the market waters from 2007-2010.
Admin Arsenal is headquartered at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.
PDQ Inventory Tracks It All
PDQ Inventory is a systems management tool that scans Windows computers to collect hardware, software, and Windows configuration data.
Out of the box, computers are automatically grouped based on
common data. View computers that have the same installed
applications, hardware, operating systems, and even Windows updates.
Additionally, create groups based on your own criteria.
Easily launch remote desktop, remote command, reboot/shutdown,
WOL, event viewer, and
more. Incorporate and run your own scripts and favorite
utilities with ease.
Report on the exact data you need by using the built-in reports
or create your own. Reports are created using our filters or even
SQL. Run reports on any or all computers in the database then print,
export and even save and email on a regular schedule to all your
Integration with PDQ Deploy
Easily identify which computers are out-of-date and use
PDQ Deploy to deploy
to those particular PCs. Automatically update PDQ Inventory directly
following the deployment. However, best of all is automatically
deploying when a computer goes from offline to online in PDQ
Insanely Detailed Data Tracking
The Collection Library makes it easy to see which computers have
out-of-date popular applications or run times. These groupings are
updated as new versions of these apps, updates, and runtimes are
released and serve as great templates for creating your own.
Find What You Want, When You Want
PDQ Inventory offers customization in what data is gathered and when.
Make sure the information most important to you is at hand at the time
it’s needed. Easily scan for:

Multi-Admin Access With a Shared Database
Share your reports and collections with other admins by creating a
server/client relationship. Maybe they’ll buy you a drink for all of the
work you saved them.

How We License
All of our free mode software is 100% free to use in any setting. Commercial, government, educational, criminal (well, maybe not that last one).
You are free to share the software with friends and colleagues, as long as it’s not modified in any way (without our written permission).
Our licensing is simple
One license per admin.
Licensing is not based on managed computers, the number of PDQ consoles, where PDQ is installed, if you share credentials, or even if you only access through the command line (CLI); it is based solely on the number of living breathing admins actually using the software. If you have 3 admins, you will need 3 licenses (sorry, no sharing).
We are subscription based, so one license is good for a full year.
