RE: free asset management sw

Hey,

You might like to try spiceworks. It is a very handy app. Only  (slight) drawback is that it's revenue model comes from ad placements..otherwise it is excellent for both inventory and help-desk functions.

Hope this helps.

just what i was looking for, great looking product - cant believe theres no catch - thanks v much

RE: free asset management sw

SpiceWorks is interesting. I have been watching it for a while. I fully expected to see it turn into a subscription only product, but it seems to not be the case. I found it to be rather slow, but they may have resolved that issue by now. Might be time to look at it again.

RE: free asset management sw

In the "maybe not free... but cheap" department, you might want to try a product called Cerulean: Resource manager. http://www.progressiveworkssoftware.com
It's a collection of IT operations tools priced in the hundreds and the best part is that they don't limit you on the number of devices you can have.
