With the beginning of the new year, we are pleased to announce the release of Express Software Manager Version 9.6!

This release includes two primary new features:

  • Inventory support for Mac OS. Express Software Manager now offers an inventory client for Mac OS machines. With the Express Mac Client, you can collect basic hardware and software inventory data. This represents a first step toward providing more comprehensive support for other platforms, and we will continue to enhance Mac functionality in future releases of Express Software Manager.
