question on 'inventory' software

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

we bought a software that can keep inventory of all the PCs on our
network, one of such things that it can do is it can keep track of
what software are being installed on user's desktops..
I was wondering how does the software do that? Does it probe the
registry to gather these information ?? or other ways??
thanks for any help.
