    we have a custom made ms access asset database. It has evolved over the years, but has all our network gear, laptops, desktops, servers, projectors, etc all in it, and we have a couple of USB barcode scanners we use for easy querying.

    It still needs a lot of work to make it completely perfect, but it does us,

    SLT at my place recently purchased School Asset Manager needs some work doing to the interface to customise it for our requirements but it seems pretty good and offers a useful reporting and auditing feature for individual rooms.

    We are looking at the Dell KACE thing. It looks pretty impressive to be honest, and although we are licensed for SCCM etc, we've just not had the time to invest my time into setting it all up. This KACE stuff is all preconfigured pretty much from what Im led to beleive? Will be interesting to have a look at it..

    I looked into ManageEngine some years ago. Pricey but it did everything.

    If you have an android phone you can use for school, try this.

    Inventory Droid

    It looks very cheap compared to all the big names out there.

    It can save all the details to a networked pc in the school too.

    BoX

    Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering how expensive Dell's KACE is?

    Our department is looking for an inventory system that would allow us to check in and out some of our various equipment and also scan our network for devices. I've looked at several of the websites in this thread and they seem more like network scanners or simple asset managers. Barcode reading is optional, but it would be nice. Any suggestions?

    So two for Spiceworks. Will it allow us to barcode items like projectors, laptops, and consumables then check them in and out to staff? I haven't used Spiceworks in quite awhile and it was in limited use as the box I installed it on was quite slow.

    I just whipped up a quick web application that uses PHP/MySQL to keep an inventory list. It can export the inventory to a CSV file when the auditors come round etc and provides enough reporting for our needs. I have no issues releasing it under a GPL licence for anyone to take a look at/use if they are interested. I found all the ones out there are far too complex for our needs, we simply wanted to store the item type, its smart water location, its asset management tag and serial number - none of the other fancy stuff other asset managers have.

    I designed it with a mobile theme in mind as usually I do the asset management on my iPhone when I've got the kit in front of me instead of going back to the office and trying to remember the serial number or read it off my hand!

    Hi i would be very interested in this. Sounds awesome using your iPhone to update it whilst in the room instead of having a million scraps of paper.
