Does anyone have any recommendations on an Asset Management Software. I am looking for something that will allow me to assign workstations and equipment to employees, read bar codes, create custom reports, etc. I don't necessarily need it to auto-discover all items on my network. I am looking to see what others are using out there and if they like it or not.

How big of a network / business are you talking about?

Currently we are running approximately 700 desktop PCs, spread out through 15 locations across the country. We also have about 120 laptops out in the field for traveling salespeople and such. I would also include in there all of our physical servers, approximately 50-60, and all printers, approximately 40.

My predecessor was using an excel spreadsheet! This became quit cumbersome, but it worked for them. I have looked at Lansweeper and Spiceworks, but neither seemed to have a way of tracking history of the machine, repairs, and barcode scanning capability. One application that I looked at that had pretty much everything that I wanted was Asset Manage. I downloaded the trial from the site, and it really looked and performed well. The problem was with the sales and support. I tried to contact both numbers and nobody answered either number. I tried calling multiple times, on different days. This becomes a problem. So, now I am back to seeing what everyone else is using and what they would recommend.

Are you looking for something free or something to purchase? If the latter, then what is your budget?

Its amazing how 700 computers where being tracked with only excel.

As to your tracking issue you might able to use Apache OfBiz. Its completely free and open source so you can modify it if you have a a coder in the company. Although it might be over kill since it has way more features then you would likely need if all your looking for is asset management software.
