How to manage Office license and collect volume license keys used on servers & Windows 7 clients?

Last Modified: 2015-06-30

In my company, we use Windows 7 pro 64bit and MS office 2010. For MS office, we use MS volume licensing program. We add licenses per request base and sometimes add licenses for the whole department (Meaning Qty 40 or so).

Recently I took over the role of managing MS office license, but the current situation is chaotic and I'm at a loss.  I don't know how many license are actually used and which ones are available. Even I found a couple of licenses that are purchased and never been used...Clearly this is not a Microsoft problem, but I wish they had a tool or an organized way for customers to maintain the MS licenses .

I would like to know how to collect volume license key information already installed on computers Also, any advice or tips on maintaining MS office are greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
