    Hi All,

    Room Booking - None
    Asset Management - Kwok Information Server 2.8.0, Open Source Edition - Fab software and free!
    Help Desk - Kwok Information Server 2.8.0 (but logging things ourselves as users are 'rubbish' at doing this).
    Active Directory Adding Users (Bulk) - None - trying to find a good program script that I don't have to write!
    Print Management - Have Print Manager Plus by Software Shelf International, but not really using it in anger!
    Software Deployment - None, Manual install or built with the image.
    Image Deployment - ghost

    My thanks to nephilism for starting this thread, and to all those who have replied. I am a school IT technician currently finishing off my computer science masters - my masters project being on aset management. Currently building an open-source web-based asset management. Although, it will be relatively custom, I am intending to GPL it at some point.. might be of interest to some of you - particularly those using an excell spreadsheet.

    I am very interested to see those of you using Spiceworks yet still using a spreadsheet for inventory.. (same here). I am intending to include a tool to pull spiceworks inventory data, and compare with manually entered data. From my experience the hardware data in spiceworks is pretty accurate. Cannot say the same for software information. Have others had this experience ? If there are other reasons why you do not use spiceworks in an inventory role, I would appreciate knowing why.

    Old school (now handed over for demolition):
    Room Booking - SchoolBooking Room & Resource Booking system
    Asset Management - Access / Excel for IT equipment. Non-IT equipment in SIMS Equipment Register
    Help Desk - Kayako SupportSuite
    Active Directory Adding Users (Bulk) - VBScript with Excel back-end
    Print Management - PaperCut
    Software Deployment - Altiris Deployment Solution
    Image deployment - Altiris Deployment Solution

    New School - As above, apart from:
    Helpdesk - Kayako Fusion (essentially Version 4 of their product)
    Print Management - Equitrac (mainly for the link with Easytrace)
    Also, trialling Altiris Deployment solution 7.1 in this school, but am currently thinking of rolling back to 6.9... Symantec made a lot of changes in V7 and I'm not sure I like them/can get my head around them at the moment!

    On this topic, Lansweeper is very good for what it is and what it costs. I can remote control devices, check hardware, check software, reboot devices, notification of printers almost out of toner...amongst a real lot of useful things....highly recommended....
