Inserting Device Asset Data into a Nimsoft Database Table

I'm currently looking for a method of gathering additional device information that the monitoring solution does not already gather (for example, device serial number, maximum drive size, etc) and dump all of the information into a table within the NimbusSLM database.  One such way we are looking at is doing this by use of WMI, as many of our customers are running the Windows platform.  From there we would need to compile the information into a table, one device per row.  Lastly, using this new table, create an 'asset dashboard' of sorts that will display all of a customer's devices and information by joining existing tables with the newly created table.


Is anyone doing anything like this already in a simpler way?
