Yeah. Currently using it in production. It runs scans on the network via wmic for pulling information into its database. Very easy to setup and if you have a problem with something at all they have plenty of information available to help you through whatever problem you might have.  it's saved me a lot of time and headache getting everything inventoried on my companies network. And the spiceworks team keeps making the software better with every upgrade and release. Check it out... you won't be dissapointed
