    Inventory Management - On a Budget

    Can anyone recommend a low cost Inventory Management solution?
    A lot of schools I manage simply use Excel but would like a more efficient solution with the ability to add bar codes along with Serial Numbers and Makes and Models and room numbers of course.

    inFlow Inventory is something I stumbled across which is free but seems to be aimed more at stock.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thank you

    I built an inventory management system in FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced, now updated to 12 to handle barcode assets. I'll be purchasing fmpro 13 adv soon as it as barcode scanning and document e-signing built in for iPads & iPhones - check it out.

    GLPI with OCS inventory. Works relay well.

    We also use GLPI as our helpdesk to keep things linked together.

    That looks interesting! Does this have the facility to go out onto the network and automatically gain assets like spiceworks or have you got to manually import the data?

    Meraki? Works great for us but takes a wee while to populate

    Thanks for your suggestions which I'll be looking through shortly.
    I forgot to subscribe to my own post so didn't realise anyone had posted.

    Bar-code scanning via ipad is the kind of thing that I'm after therefore adding and subtracting items on the move.

    would you be able to share your Database layout? we just got filemaker adv 13 a few weeks ago and are still getting the hang of it, I really don't want to use a prebuilt template...


    thanks!
