    What software do you use?

    I am just wondering what software everyone uses for the following.

    Room Booking
    Asset Management
    Help Desk
    Active Directory Adding Users (Bulk)
    Print Management
    Software Deployment
    Image deployment

    The headteacher would like to know if it is broadly similar to what we run!
