Asset and Inventory Management
Looking at asset and inventory management and was just wondering how everyone here does it? I've read lots of threads and done lots of searches on the subject, but I'm interested to see if there are any solutions people are using that I haven't considered or if people have any opinions on what we're looking at.
Essentially we're looking for a full asset management system for everything including IT equipment. One that we're liking the look of is Asset Management Software and Asset Tracking, but unfortunately its not cheap. Our director of finance has used AssetGuard in the past and likes it.
Whatever system we use we'd like it to be able to read in barcode data from some form of scanner (the parago system uses ipods/iphones to do this) to either create new assets or update asset information while out and about the site. We really don't want to use an excel spreadsheet and unfortunately due to a million and one other tasks as the moment dont have time to build/develop our own system.
So what does everyone else use? Any good systems, and any we should stay away from?
