    No it isn't, I use it to record all equipment, as you can define your own fields you can record anything.

    I use a simple spreadsheet with conditional formatting setup to alert me when things need checking like projector bulb hours + filters and health checks for non domain teacher laptops etc. Thinking of moving to sharepoint soon though and using alerts on there. Not sure if this is what you mean but I believe in KISS and this is about as simple as it could get. Works for me

    If you use SIMS and FMS at school, you could always try the Equipment Register module that's a part of FMS. It also allows you to pull in any equipment you order through FMS which saves a bit of time. Plus it's there and ready to go.

    We had a trial by a company that wanted £3k for a fancy system using Ipods and QR codes - problem is behind the shiny front end it was a standard database. Taking that as a starting idea and customising it to what our bursar wanted took about an hour to setup in Access. You could download a free QR reader for your phone and print them off yourself if you wanted to be clever - I found it quicker using standard ID tags and typing the code in.

    I think Spiceworks had something in there as well - could do something in sharepoint maybe.
    You are talking about School Asset Manager, we went with this at my previous school and it was very very good, largley because people wanted to use it ("ooooo shiny iPod"). But it does cost of course

    Just getting back to this. Thanks to those who posted. Spiceworks is not ideal, we cant give people accounts without giving them access to other areas.

    If anyone has any other suggestions please do say

    As I mentioned previously, if you use SIMS check the finance module out for the asset management side of things. I'm pretty sure most other Management Information Systems will do the same somewhere along the way.
