This approach can be changed by defining custom application name masks to group items with non-identical names and display them in the report as one item.
Remote Scan Operations
Automatic Network Enumeration  
Local network is scanned automatically to detect available remote PCs and extract inventory data from them. Supported options include entire local network enumerating to detect PCs in all available domains and workgroup, or enumerating PCs according with defined IP range or domain/workgroup name.
Clientless Remote Inventory  
Inventory information is extracted without installation of any client software to remote PCs. Most of asset information from remote PCs can be also retrieved even without WMI enabling.
Inventory Collection Stub  
Inventory information can be extracted locally for each PC by execution of stub utility.

Remote inventory requires administrative access to remote PC. In complicated networks structures consists of multiple domains PCs can be configured to have different administrative credentials. To access such network structures administrative credentials can be defined separately for each workgroup, domain or even a particular PC.
