IT hardware tracking system?

Has anyone used a good IT hardware tracking system, something where I can put asset tags on hardware and scan them as they go in and out? This particular client is a small business and they have IT hardware coming in and out to remote locations frequently and they would like something to manage that.

I would think about SpiceWorks - http://www.spiceworks.com/free-pc-network-inventory-software/ 
It is free, easy to setup and a small footprint.
It also allows for hourly scans!

We currently have a management software and are looking for something specific to asset tracking with barcodes.
I would like at companies like this one - http://www.kzsoftware.com/products/asset-management-software/screenshots.htm

Very cheap and gives you everything you need.

On a grander scale there is HP Asset Manager that can do bar codes BIOS asset tags and application tracking.  Currently I am using this.  It can also work with HP DDMI to actively track servers and machines on a network.  Also one i have not used but know about, is Numara.
