Customer Reviews

‘We have used the entire RayManageSoft Suite for the last 13 years and it has served us very well during that time. RayVentory is a part of RayManageSoft and it has been a very valuable tool in allowing us to understand what software is in our environment, helping us save on licensing true-ups by preventing us from over-purchasing.’

‘Easy implementation / Inventory methods are explained by Raynet and depend upon the category (vendor, SW, HW)/ Raynet’s professional services are rendered in a reliant and targeted way for the various categories and are based on experience.’
