Does anyone know of any free asset management software please?
As above. Used it for years here.
Thats more of a computer asset management, we are after a general one for all items in school. Thanks

Was goig to say GLPI too......
Depends what you are using it for and any access specification (web access, user authentication etc).
Ours was just an internal database incase of a fire etc to keep track of anything we felt was of value (PC's, cameras, etc) - I just set one up in MS Access (yes it is being backed up to a remote location!).
That would be happing with all data anywayyes it is being backed up to a remote location
Any access is ok, i did look at making an access DB but just want to see what else is out there.
Just anticipating someone jumping in with the "yeah but if its saved locally what use is it in a fire" comment
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.
Spiceworks is only good for computers. We want to stick most stuff on.
We will probably use barcodes. The readers are pretty cheap!
Spiceworks is pretty open you can stick anything you like in it, it's power comes from the auto-logging features of networked computer equipment though.
QR Code Generator to generate a code stuck some information in about a PC, printed then scanned with QRDroid on my phone. It worked but I found it too cumbersome with the 600 - 800 items we would need it for. I'm sure someone who is a bit smarter than me might be able to make it work for them!!
Does your school use SIMS at all? Just I know that I'm currently going through checking our school inventory for "anything with a plug" at the moment, but it does all sorts of other things too, so that might be an option. It's in the SIMS Finance Module that it can be found and you can inventory things on rooms.
I'm just looking to see if it does some kind of barcode scanning too so I can produce labels when something has been inventoried I can easily check it off a list later and what not.
