    I have to be honest it does look pretty neat, especially the mobile client. Saying that, I wouldn't pay for something that my Techs & I can do ourselves where Spicework fails e.g, anything not networked.

    I think from my perspective if you like spending lots of time (so depends on how long) doing something like asset tagging and recording data in a manual way then its actually the best method. The argument really is how much time you can save doing it using a mobile app for exaample (but yes it costs money) and how much better and more cost effective your time would be spent freeing up time to do something more useful and interesting!

    Try 10-Strike Network Inventory Explorer. It does not require installing any additional software on remote computers. The program gathers asset data via WMI but supports clients also (which can be run via a logon script). The 200 PC license costs $400 US (~260 GBP)

    Asset and hardware/software inventory in MS SCCM does the trick for us (along with OS and app deployment). It's peanuts if you've got a schools agreement as the desktop cal's include it.
    R3 is going to include a lot of power management controls and reports.
    The only thing it's lacking is licence enforcement which they removed from config manager 2003(?)

    But it uses a client.

    I've used BrowseControl in a previous life and it was quite good. Pricey at the time i'm not sure if it's changed much BrowseControl - Value Added Distributor for Symantec, Altiris, Credant, IT Security and Desktop Management Solutions in the UK and Ireland
