Professional asset tracking - it was probably installed by your company. I believe it tracks how much you use which programs (but nothing more specific).

Product claims to help company track who uses what software, who needs updates, who has software that is going unused, etc. Benefits company by knowing which computers need critical updates or which comptuers can release an application to another(rather than buying a new license), etc., but could be seen as spyware tracking employee computer usage.

TSUsage32.exe is part of Zenworks Asset Management . Check with your company's network administrator to see if they are using Zenworks/Zenworks Asset Management. If not treat it as spyware/malicious.
It is part of Novell ZENWorks Asset Management and Also u used in the Novell Client 4.91 with remote patch management (Patchlink)
Also part of the ZENworks Configuration Management client installed onto devices when using ZCM.
This process regularily uses 40% of my CPU. Enough that it slows down other processes. I contacted IT and they said it is a "resource hog".

Best practices for resolving TSUsage32 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with TSUsage32. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the TSUsage32.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
