  • The Spiceworks inventory can do this, it sends out "what's new on your network" emails too.

    How much did it work?

    Without knowing the issues you faced, we can't help troubleshoot why it didn't

    That said, the old Spiceworks Desktop Helpdesk/Inventory in one Windows product) had it's limits).

    The new cloud based online inventory uses agents to scan the devices so your results may be better.

    I would like to find a monitoring tool as an admin on a company to be able to monitor installed applications per workstation on the network.

    Does this line mean your devices have users with local admin to install their own apps? If they don't have local admin, the programs installed should not be changing.

    You haven't said, but would you need to report on Windows apps via the store or only regular apps?

    Is it Windows only?

    You could probably create a WMI command to run via PowerShell against each machine and email the results if you only want to cast your eyes over it and not have historical reports or tracking.

    Preferably free.

    A small scheduled Powershell script that runs locally on every machine once a week or does the job remotely https://adamtheautomator.com/powershell-list-installed-software/. Output is written to a CSV or HTML file located on a network share and appended, so you get a report. No budget and probably 5 to 15 minutes of your time to get it working. If Powershell scripts do not work right away, you may need to change the configuration a bit https://www.hyper-v.io/powershell-commands-scripts-not-work-can-fix/. That is as free as it can be. No 3rd party software is required.
